In my previous post, I went into some details on the Sigma 3DHD Precision brush, the Sigma E55 & the Sigma E06 and now I’m back to share some swatches and thoughts of the Sigma Beauty makeup products that I received!
The Lip Vex ($10) that I received is in the shade All Heart which is a sheer chocolaty brown with a sort of mauvey undertone. On the lips it appeared as a sheer wash of natural color and boy did it SHINE! The finish was really glossy and beautiful. It had a slightly tacky yet not sticky consistency, was surprisingly moisturizing and smelled/tasted like vanilla cake. I don’t wear a lot of lip gloss just by itself so I’m no lip gloss connoisseur but I felt like the formula was pretty nice. Even after about 4 hours, although the gloss had indeed faded (I was also drinking & not with a straw) it was still definitely lingering on my lips. Even though I’m not a huge fan of only wearing gloss on my lips, I do love to add a little gloss on top of matte lipsticks to give them some shine or alter the color a little and I think this shade will be really nice for giving some of my lipsticks a slightly more natural hue.
This beautiful peachy shade is called Heavenly ($12) and is my first Sigma blush that I’ve tried. When I swatched it I was immediately surprised by how soft and pigmented it was! While great pigmentation is normally a good thing, it makes me slightly nervous when it comes to blush because I’m always afraid of ending up with overly pigmented, patchy blush all over my pale cheeks but that didn’t happen here. This blush actually blended into the skin really easily and wasn’t at all patchy. I also feel like the color of this shade is just perfect and I’m sure it’ll be getting a lot of love from me. This blush, like most blushes, did fade a little throughout the day but was still noticeably there at the end of the day. Seriously a lovely product and a gorgeous shade.
This Sigma Gel Eye Liner ($14) is in the shade Unexpected and is a grey with slightly greenish undertones. The eyeliner wasn’t quite as fluid-like as I would have liked. It definitely didn’t drag or skip over your lids or anything of that nature but it just didn’t flow quite as well as I had expected. With that being said, it didn’t really affect the overall quality of the product and is mostly just a personal preference. It applied nice and opaquely and lasted very well throughout the day. I wore it for 8-9 hours and there was no smudging, flaking or fading.
These are swatches of the Sigma Brow Highlight Duo’s ($14). Each duo comes with one matte and one shimmer shade which is nice because different looks call for different finishes and different levels of drama. These are made with the intention of giving you a beautiful under brow highlight but they’re also great for highlighting cheek bones, the inner corner of your eyes or whatever else you wish to highlight! You can also use these as eyeshadow so they’re pretty versatile! Most of these shades were really well pigment but a couple of the mattes were slightly less so. These were all soft and easily blendable.
