Sigma Creme de Couture Palette
Wednesday, September 25, 2013
So the thing is, I had stumbled upon a blog where the blogger had these incredible swatches over bare skin. I was amazed, that's what made me pull the trigger. However when I actually had this palette in my hands, it didn't swatch nearly as intense. Granted a lot of these shades are softer pastel colors, but the pigmentation just wasn't there.
Here's a look I did with Cafe au Lait, Ginger Pumpkin, Violet Whip, Almond Pear and Creme de Menthe. They weren't bad to work with, but they definitely need primer and a creamy white base to show up.
One last thing worth noting, the pans in this palette are small. In between the size of a dime and a nickel.
So overall I'm feeling rather lukewarm about this palette. The packaging, the concept, the colors themselves... all fantastic and just really beautiful. The pigmentation of the shades leaves a lot to be desired, but at least they are all consistently mediocre (is that a plus? Not really, I suppose). I'm sort of kicking myself for letting a single blog sway my decision to buy this.
The Sigma Creme de Couture Palette is $32 and available on the Sigma website.
