Sigma Beauty NEW Dare Bare Flare Shadow Palettes

During IMATS LA, @Sigma_Beauty gave away sample eyeshadow palettes from their new eyeshadow palettes collection, Dare, Bare, and Flare. The sample palette I received at IMATS had one color from each palette: Reveal from the Dare palette, Act from the Bare palette, and Oversee from the Flare palette.

All colors basically describe each palette it comes in. I was pretty surprised to find that all three colors were pretty pigmented and showed up well over some eye primer. The shadows in this palette give you a satin finish but their large, retail palettes come in satin and matte shadows. I liked that they could be used dry or wet depending on how opaque you want it to be. Each palette has eight colors that let you go from day to night and include a double-sided Short Shader brush and Small Tapered Blending brush.

Just wanted to test out the colors really quick and this is what I came up with. Act all over the lid, Oversee on the outer corner and lower lashes, and Reveal over the liner towards the outer corner. The colors aren’t super intense because I didn’t want to overdo it since I was just going to a simple dinner with my family tonight but the colors are pretty.

From trying colors at their booth, the lighter, matte colors didn’t really show up as much as the satiny ones. I do like the colors for the most part that come in the palettes although there isn’t too much variety in the bold color department. I’m guessing their selection will grow over time and as their fan base grows. I kind of wish they would put more colors into the palettes rather than so many bland colors. I feel like I have a gazillion taupes, browns, and beiges whether in single pans or in palettes it would be nice to not have half the palette be so “vanilla.”

This is definitely a combo of colors I’m considering wearing for 4th of July 🙂 Make sure you check out Sigma’s palettes!

 

xo, June 🙂
