Sigma Limited Edition Paris Palette

I just love my Sigma Bare, Dare, and Flare palettes so when I heard that Sigma was releasing a limited edition Paris palette, I just had to get it.

The Paris palette was part of the Paris Project, a collaboration between Sigma and 7 of my favorites bloggers (inspired eyeshadow shade based on assigned landmark location/monument in parentheses):
  • Petrilude (Louvre)
  • FromHeadtoToe (Triomphe)
  • DulceCandy87 (Élysées)
  • XSparkage (Versailles)
  • MacNC40 (Orsay)
  • MakeupbyTiffanyD (Eiffel)
  • Xteeener (Notre Dame)
The mirrored palette is packaged with a postcard motif and includes a booklet about the bloggers and the inspiration behind their shades.  Contents are 8 eyeshadows (net weight 12g), 2 blush shades and 1 highlight shade (net weight 12g) plus 2 Sigma brushes (E55 and F40).  Retail cost for each palette is $59.

Here's my description of each shade:
  • Eiffel - shimmery black (glitter)
  • Seine - royal blue frost
  • Louvre - turquoise
  • Orsay - shimmery seafoam green (glitter)
  • Élysées - plum frost
  • Notre Dame - shimmery taupe (glitter) (reminds me of MAC Satin Taupe)
  • Triomphe - brown/green duochrome (reminds me of MAC Club)
  • Versailles - shimmery ivory (glitter)
  • Rouge (blush) - matte mauve/plum
  • Pêche (blush) - matte ruddy peach
  • Lumière - shimmery ivory
Here's a closeup of the first 4 eyeshadows and swatches:

Overall rating:  Booyah!

I love the mix of shades, from some nice neutral shades to some bright, bold colors.  So happy that the brushes weren't double-ended like those included in Bare, Dare and Flare, as I find them difficult to store.

Hoping this is just the beginning of location-inspired palettes and that Sigma will be coming up with other editions.  If you'd like your own Paris palette, please click here.
