I had tried and reviewed Sigma brushes in the past, and there's no denying they're pretty awesome, but this is the first time I'm trying anything from the makeup range. The Warm Neutrals Palette contains a mix of 12 matte and shimmery eyeshadows in beautiful warm shades. It comes in cardboard packaging with magnetic closure, and a large mirror under the lid.
|Please note that the names of the shades aren't actually printed on the palette, I've just typed it up here for ease of reference.|
Let's look at some swatches shall we?
|L/R: Oyster Sand, Sugar Milk, Mild Mannered, Dove|
|L/R: Fawn, Cinnamon, Russet, Balanced|
|L/R: Cozy, Innocent, Optimistic, Warm Stone|
Overall I think I'll get a lot of use out of this palette, especially shades like Dove, Fawn and Cozy. Even though I have a tonne of neutral palettes already, the shades are actually quite different to the ones I already have. The only gripe I have with it, and most normal people won't mind, is I wish the names of the shades were printed on the front of the packaging so that if I needed to refer to them in a blog post or something then I could get the name quickly. But as I said, that's not a biggie and is probably more a beauty blogger problem! LOL.
I think my Aussie readers will be especially happy to know they can get Sigma makeup and brushes from an Australian retailer, and get this, the prices are comparable to what you'd expect to pay from the actual Sigma store. You know how a lot of the time we get charged up to 3 times more for products here than in the US & UK? Well, not the case at Redefining Beauty. Most Sigma products are only slightly higher here than through the US store, and when you factor in the cost of international shipping there's really no comparison. Like this palette, it's AUD $43 through Redefining Beauty, and US $39 through actual Sigma store which if you factor in conversion rate it probably works out the same.
What do you think of this palette? Have you tried any makeup from the Sigma range?
