Sigma Creme De Couture Macaroon Inspired Palette Review, Swatches and Makeup Look

Let's be honest - most of us always stick to neutral colours and our everyday eye makeup consists of various brown/muted gold shades or a simple flick of black liner. Sigma Creme De Couture  Palette is the total opposite of what I usually go for, but I love to experiment with unusual colours and makeup looks, so I was happy to give it a go. 

Creme De Couture Palette is inspired by Macaroons and features 16 beautiful matte shades. Most of them are light pastel colours, but there is also a medium brown, dark blue and fuchsia pink.  It is a perfect combination for those who want to start experimenting with brighter colours. Surprisingly, I will get a lot of use out of the palette, because most shades are very wearable. My favourites are: Apricot Flower, Passion Fruit, Cafe Au Lait, Elderberry and Cassis. You can see all the swatches on the photos below. 

The finish of all the shades is truly matte, all nicely pigmented and quite easy to blend. The lighter the shade, the more chalky the formula, but it is completely normal in my experience. I always make sure to use a primer to get the best colour payoff and make the shadows last longer on my eye lids. I wore most of the colours and the dark ones started fading after about 12 hours, light ones after 6-8 hours (with primer).

As you can see, the palette comes in cardboard packaging and the design is very girly and pretty. Nothing too fancy, but it is aesthetically pleasing and practical.  If you are a fan of dreamy, subtle and romantic makeup looks, you will love Sigma's Limited Edition Creme De Couture Palette. There are also three blushers in the collection, in shades: Cherry Apple, Strawberry Ambrosia and Blackberry Essence.

Let me know what you think about the look I created with the palette.
