Sigma Beauty: Creme De Couture Collection

Hi there! I was super excited when the Creme de Couture Collection released. The collection includes an eyeshadow palette and three blushes. They were inspired by French macarons!

The beautiful matte eyeshadow palette:
These shadows are buttery smooth & blends very nicely! 

Swatches of the 1st row:
- Redberry Rose is a hot pink.
- Apricot Flower is a peach.
- Passion Fruit is a dusty rose.
- Cherry Blossom is a baby pink.

Swatches of the 2nd row:
 - Meyer Lemon is a pastel yellow.
- Ginger Pumpkin is a pumpkin orange.
- Cafe Au Lait is a warm brown.
- Blueberry Cream is a baby blue.

Swatches of the 3rd row:
- Violet Whip is a light lavender.
- Lavender Honey is a lilac.
- Cassis is a blueish purple.
- Elderberry is an eggplant.

Swatches of the 4th row:
- Blue Chocolat is a cool baby blue.
- Almond Pear is a mint green.
- Creme De Menthe is a sea green.
- Citron Pistachio is a grassy lime.

Next are the blushes... which I adore as much as the eyeshadow palette!

Left to right: Strawberry Ambrosia, Blackberry Essence, & Cherry Apple

- Strawberry Ambrosia is a cotton candy pink.
- Blackberry Essence is a soft lilac.
- Cherry Apple is the most wearable shade and it's a pretty apricot color.

The eyeshadow palette and blushes are nicely pigmented and have great color payoff. They're buttery smooth and super easy to blend. Some of the lighter shades can come out quite chalky, but I don't find it a problem when I use NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk underneath.

The eyeshadow palette retails for $32 and the blushes for $12 each. However, you can purchase the entire collection for $55 ($68 value) here. It's definitely a great value!

I did one look with the palette & blush (Strawberry Ambrosia) a week ago:
*The lighting really washed out the eyeshadow shades. Sorry! I need to play around with my camera a bit more.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
