The name and design of the Sigma Paris Palette ask you to plunge into the atmosphere of the most romantic city in the world – Paris! It was he who inspired the brand to create it. Even the names of each color carry a certain connotation: Eiffel, Seine, Louvre, Orsay, Élysées, Notre Dame, Triomphe, Versailles.
Sigma Paris Palette
It is worth saying that the Sigma Paris Palette was created under the guidance of 7 beauty bloggers, each of whom made their own contribution. Perhaps for this reason, I was a little surprised by the quality that is still possible for the Sigma brand.
Thanks to their production of low-quality brushes, they cast doubt on their other products. Therefore, in all honesty, I didn’t really doubt it, I was sure that it would not be high-quality shadows and blush.
But getting down to the swatch photos, I was amazed at the saturation of the shades, especially black and blue!
Sigma shadow quality
True, the black in the palette shimmers thanks to a large shimmer, which, when applied, completely crumbles and the shadows turn into an ordinary black color.
The same thing happens with Orsay and with the lightest shade in the palette – Versailles. Crazy dusty!
And the problem is most likely in a too large shimmer. The glitter lies on the surface of the shadows, not in the texture itself. Therefore, when brands release eyeshadows with such a large shimmer, they change the dry texture to a creamy one, which does not allow it to crumble.
As for the rest of the colors, they are all highly pigmented, especially matte: Eiffel, Seine, Louvre, Notre Dame.

But the most interesting shade of all is Triomphe. I never expected to find in this palette chameleon shadow… It is very similar to the famous MAC Club Eyeshadow. True, less intense, but the overflows are identical.
The colors themselves in the palette are well chosen, easily combined, and sometimes this is what is lacking in such issues.
Blush and Highlighter
As for the blush and highlighter, it’s not so simple here. Blush shades look very natural, I would say natural.
And the swatches turned out to be bright due to their strong pigmentation. Therefore, the surplus has to be constantly shaken off. And yes, they are very dusty.
But the highlighter refuses to be so. It practically does not fit either a hand or a finger, it is not there! I have never met such a low-pigmented highlighter. Therefore, before getting it to shine, it will take a lot of time and effort.
Sigma Makeup Brushes
You probably know more than I do that not all Sigma brushes are of high quality. It is possible to apply both blush and shadow with them, but the result may not be what you would like to see it. Therefore, when buying this palette, I would not count on them.
Price: 49 $
This is the most controversial result in the history of reviews, because it causes a split personality in me. One person says that this is quite a good palette with its advantages, while another refutes it and requires more quality. Nevertheless, the Sigma Paris Palette has long been released and it is what it is.
