As you may have seen in my Christmas recap, I was gifted the Sigma Beauty Paris palette, and I'm loving it!
This palette is a limited edition collaboration of several YouTubers, most of whose videos I watch!
First of all, I love this packaging.
The outer protective cover is like an airmail envelope, which I thought was cute.
It comes with a little pamphlet with a page dedicated to each YouTuber and they say what inspired the shade they created.
This is the actual palette. . .
. . .which opens up to eight beautiful shades, two blushes, a highlighter, two brushes and a mirror.
Eiffel is a very black shade with multi colored shimmer - a tiny bit goes a long way! Seine is a slightly shimmery, deep satin blue color.
Louvre is a matte teal shade; Orsay is an aqua color with golden shimmer, and one of my favorites for adding a pop of color.
L to R: Eiffel, Seine, Louvre, Orsay.
Elysees is a burgundy shade with a little golden shimmer; Notre Dame is a metallic purpley-taupe shade and another one of my favorites.
Triomphe is a duo chrome shade that looks pretty dark green in the palette, but goes on as more of a really pretty reddish-brown shade - I really like this shade! Versailles is a really bright white-gold shade.
L to R: Elysees, Notre Dame, Triomphe, Versailles
Rouge is a dusty rose/mauvey blush that's really pretty.
Peche is peach, obviously =) This is the one I've worn the most because it's so natural looking and perfect for day to day wear.
Lumiere is the highlight shade, which is also really pretty.

A Sigma Beauty E55 eye brush comes with the palette and I think it's the perfect choice because you can use it to apply shadow to the lid, and then blend it up into the crease.
The F40 contour brush is perfect for the blush and highlight application. And it's soft!
All the shadows in this palette were excellent quality, super pigmented and just gorgeous shades. It's such a colorful palette, but all the shades are definitely wearable and together can create some really pretty looks.
It's definitely worth the price, especially when you get two Sigma Beauty brushes in the palette, and those are worth over $20 alone! I have been using this non stop since Christmas - I can't rave about this brand enough. It's definitely up there with Urban Decay for my favorite brand.
