The Paris Palette is a limited edition by Sigma Beauty that has 8 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, 1 highlight and 2 brushes. The palette is obviously inspired by Paris monuments and places which the eyeshadows are named after. What’s interesting is that some of our favorite beauty gurus, which are 7, participated in developing this palette. Each one took a place or a monument and inspired an eyeshadow color from it, very interesting and i loved the idea!!
The palette costs $59 from Sigma Beauty website but you can have %10 off if you used some discount codes like FRMHEADTOTOE and TIFFANYD when you check out, the beauty gurus who participated in this palette are offering these discounts.
Now i will give a review about each and every color and what i think about them:
Eiffel eyeshadow:(developed by Tiffany MakeupbyTiffanyD) This color is black with multicolor sparkle, I dont see the color as black as it is, it is more of dark blue once it is swatched and maybe it is because of the multicolor sparkles effect, i believe it will look darker once you build it up. I am not a big fan of black eyeshadows let alone that comes with sparkle so i dont like this color that much, my use of black is very minimal but i am sure a time will come to use this color.
Seine eyeshadow: (developed by all) This is a metallic dark blue, the color is gorgeous and the metallic effect makes it more beautiful, the pigmentation is really good so you will not have a difficult time building the color, the texture is very smooth, i dont like blue shades but this one is really gorgeous.
Louvre eyeshadow: (developed by Josh Petrilude) This one is a matte dark turquoise color, the color is a bit chalky when i swatch it, the color looks better on the plate than on my hand, Seine shade is more wearable than Louvre, and again i dont like blue shades and this one is on the rarely used category.
Orsay eyeshadow: (developed by Suzy MacNC40) This is a very interesting color, light turquoise with silver sparkles, amazingly this color reminds me of mermaids and i dont know why! The sparkles pop out and catches the eye more than the color itself, like i have swatched the eyeshadow alone and added sparkle on top, this is not nice effect at all, the 2 combinations are not flatteringly blended.
Elysées eyeshadow: (developed by Dulce DulceCandy87) This is such a gorgeous color, a dark velvety plum color with what it seems like golden sparkles, the combination is well blended and the color pops more than the sparkle which makes it very wearable. The texture is velvety and the color is fairly pigmented.
Notre Dame eyeshadow: (developed by Christine xteeener) Could this be my favorite color? Possibly!! This is a metallic taupe, very gorgeous color, this is a color i can wear on all over my lid, i love such colors and they always end up being my favorite. I cant really tell if there is any sparkle in it, but the color looks pretty metallic to me. The texture is very velvety and pigmented, one of my favorite in this palette.
Triomphe eyeshadow: (developed by Jen frmheadtotoe) I just realized that i didnt write about this color while swatching it so here i am writing about it, i dont know why i missed it the first time, this color is absolutely gorgeous, the colors is a metallic olive green brown color which by the way isnt new to me, i have a loose powder eyeshadow that has almost the same shade from Scott Barnes and its one of my top favorites. The color isnt as dark as it looks in the palette, i believe that the Elysees, Notre Dame and Triomphe are my favorites in this palette.
Versailles eyeshadow: (developed by Leesha xsparkage) This is a goldish white shimmer, gives a beautiful reflect but it looks a bit chalky when i swatch it, i thought the color will be more velvety from where i see it in the palette. It looks like there are kind of gold flakes that dont stick on the color, some mini bits are flying when i swatch it. I am trying to love this color, i just wished if it was more velvety then it will be gorgeous.
This is a swatched on arm picture i got from Head to Toe which is one of who participated in the Paris Palette:
Rouge blush: a very beautiful matte plum blush, this color is indeed versatile and will look good on every skin tone, but i am not a big fan of plum blushes because some of them tend to look like bruises on the cheeks if it wasnt worn properly.
Péche blush: This is a soft peach velvety matte color blush, it is very beautiful and compliments all skin tones just like Rouge, this is very easy to wear and it wont look bad if you added more on your cheeks. This is definitely my favorite blush in the palette, i tend to like the orange/peachy blush shades more and mainly because they look better on my skin.
Lumiére highlight: now this is a very interesting color, when i first swatched it didnt seem to give me any color, but when i add more it gives a beautiful glow, the kind of color that makes the skin looks glowing and not shimmery. The color on the palette looks a bit darker than swatched, like it has a pinkish tone but it doesnt.
sounds really good, on a scale from 1 to 10, how much will u give this palette ?
Marwa, i will provably give it a 7, not that its not good but the choice of eyeshadow colors are not very wearable to me, if it was more of warm tones then i will give it more.
