Sigma Eyeshadows

I love Sigma make up brushes so was excited to see that they were bringing out eyeshadows early last year. However as shipping from America is so expensive I thought I would pass on the eyeshadow front. I was so lucky to receive a mini palette, which contains one shade from all three of Sigma's eyeshadow palettes, at the Nottingham blogger meet up last year. I believe that all I've been using them for a while now so thought I'd share my thoughts on them.

Surrender comes from the Dare palette and is a gorgeous, slightly shimmery purple/brown shade. It is the most pigmented of the three which was expected as it is the darkest. The texture of the eyeshadow is quite grainy and not smooth at all, however I feel that this may be why it lasts well during the day. Surrender is only available as part of the palette and not as an individual eyeshadow.

Command comes from a palette that I believe has been discontinued however it's available as a single eyeshadow. Its a lovely shimmery sand colour which is a great shade to use all over the lid if your keeping eyeshadow neutral. This is probably the least pigmented of all three however it is buildable. 

Publicize is a beautiful cream colour, a perfect highlight colour! Its such a buttery soft eyeshadow and really nice to use. Its got a sheen to it but isn't shimmery so makes a lovely highlight. Its part of the Flare eyeshadow palette and is also available as an individual eyeshadow.

Overall I wasn't that impressed with the Sigma eyeshadows. I definitely wouldn't buy them myself as I think there are so many better drugstore eyeshadows available in the UK such as MUA. The individual eyeshadows cost around £7.50 and the palettes currently cost around £18 so there definitely not the cheapest eyeshadows and then you also have to factor in delivery into the cost. Although I wouldn't recommend the eyeshadows, I still highly rate Sigma brushes. 

Have you tried any make up from Sigma?

P.S. I apologise for the enormous number of times I used the word 'eyeshadow' in this post!


  1. Hmm these are pretty expensive and the pigmentation doesn't look that great for the price, or at all! Such a shame x
