Hi lovely readers! ❤
Sigma Beauty’s new eyeshadow palette “Créme de Couture” launched today! 😀 I pre-ordered the palette the 26th of August, cuz I couldn’t wait any longer to get it! ❤ It’s a beautiful palette with 16 matte, candy colored and macaron inspired eyeshadows! I mean, can you ask for anything cuter? 😉
The eyeshadows! I love all the cute macaron names they have! 😀
Here are my swatches and thoughts about each of the shadows. For base, I’ve used Too Faced Shadow Insurance and NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Milk.
Redberry Rose: A medium hot pink. This is a true candy pink color!
Apricot Flower: This is a beautiful peachy/coral color! Gorgeous on the lids for those with blue eyes!
Passion Fruit: I would describe this as a pinkish brown shadow, like a fruity chocolate ice cream topping! 😉 A unique color!
Cherry Blossom: A light, baby pink shade. I’ve always wanted a matte, baby pink, pressed shadow like this!
Meyer Lemon: Very light yellow. I’ve also wanted this shadow in a pressed form! I just think pressed shadows are easier to work with. 😛
Ginger Pumpkin: The name describes this color so well! As I say in the video: The perfect pumpkin shade!
Café au Lait: This is a gorgeous café brown! This was the least pigmented of all the eyeshadows in the palette, but as you can see from the swatches, it’s easy to build up over a primer! 😉
Blueberry Cream: This is a vibrant baby blue shadow. Very pretty!
Violet Whip: A light, cool toned, pastel lilac. Awesome as a highlight for a purple smokey eye or to blend out purple shadows, like I do in the video tutorial that you can see below.
Lavender Honey: Warm, lavender color. This is the most pigmented and the smoothest out of all the shadows!
Cassis: A beautiful, medium lilac!
Elderberry: A stunning, very dark purple!
The lighting is a bit different in these 2 pics. The sun is shining in the first pic, so that’s why the colors look slightely different. 😛
Blue Chocolat: An other light blue, but this is a bit more subtle than Blueberry Cream. It’s lighter and not as neon-ish.
Almond Pear: The perfect light, pastel mint! I can’t say enough good things about this color! ❤ My new love!
Créme de Menthe: A gorgeous turquoise, sea green eyeshadow!
Citron Pistachio: Beautiful, true lime green shade!
My overall thoughts about these shadows is that they are all very pigmented, they are buttery and smooth, and also very easy to blend! There are also some rare colors here! ❤ What’s special about these shadows is that they are pastel, but they are not subtle and boing, they are very neon in a way, which I think is cool! 😀
Except for Lavender Honey, they are all a bit powdery; the lightest ones more than the others. So, like with all eyeshadows, I would wear a primer before applying these. Also, a white base, like NYX Milk, will make them pop! 😉 The purple shades were the smoothest and because I am obsessed with mint and turquoise shadows, the bottom row is my favorite! 😀
I mention in the video that I’ve been looking for the perfect matte mint color for 2 years now and for me personally, Almond Pair is the one! ❤ In the picture above you can see the result of my 2 year mint-study, haha 😀 The Inglot mint is too blue, the Makeup Forever one is too green, the one from Coastal scents is too turquoise and dark. The last swatch is a mixture of 2 shadows, a light blue and a lime. This is what I first used to achieve my mint color, but as you can see, it’s hard to mix these colors together and the final color cracks a bit. So I’m really really happy that my search is now over and that I’ve found this Sigma mint! 😀
The palette consists of 0,85oz / 24g of product and Sigma ships worldwide!
The palette costs $32 alone, but you can also get 3 blushes with the palette. I didn’t get that, but the palette and the blushes all together, cost $55.
