Preview & Swatches Of The Sigma Paris Palette...

Guest Post By: Rmyah

I’m in Gay Paree… Ewww that sounded so gross. I meant I’m so addicted to Paris. Not the city but the palette. Am I being obtuse or aren’t you able to make it out by now. I’m of courrrrrse( the French way) talking about le Sigma Paris Palette. And what a palette it is oh boy..!!

What Sigma claims about the Paris:

The Limited Edition Paris Makeup Palette includes eight eye shadow colors inspired by landmark monuments and locations in Paris. It also includes two blush colors and one highlight shade, carefully developed to complement all skin tones. The palette comes with two essential brushes for a flawless makeup application.

Sigma Paris Palette

The Paris Palette is a limited edition palette by the beauty brand Sigma. 
The Paris palette has been developed in collaboration by seven well known YouTube gurus namely MakeupbyTiffanyD, Petrilude, MacNC40, DulceCandy87, xteeener, frmheadtotoe and xsparkage.

Sigma Paris Palette

Each makeup guru was assigned a landmark monument in Paris to take inspiration from and  develop an eye shadow shade inspired by it. The chosen landmarks were the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Triomphe, the Champs-Elysées, the Palace of Versailles, the D’Orsay Museum, Notre Dame and the Seine River
The shadow names too are derived from the names of these monuments.
The eight eye shadows are (from Left to Right) Eiffel, Seine, Louvre, Orsay, Elysées, Notre Dame, Triomphe, Versailles. 
The two blushes are called Rouge and Peche and the highlighter Lumiere.

Sigma Paris Palette

Eiffel is the color developed by Tiffany of MakeupbyTiffanyD. It is a Matte Black base with sparkles in it.
Seine is the color developed by all of the group together. Seine is a deep, satin navy blue truly taking its name from the river.

 Louvre is the color developed by Josh of Petrilude. It is a very matte teal blue color. This is probably my most favorite color out of all.
Orsay is the color developed by Suzy of MacNC40. This one is a matte sea green base with a lot of  gold shimmery flecks in it.

Elysées is the color developed by Dulce of DulceCandy87. The color is a satiny burgundy brown shade.
Notre Dame is the color developed by Christine of xteeener. Notre Dame is a beautiful metallic gray-burgundy taupe. The color looks old and gray just like Notre Dame.

Triomphe is the color developed by Jen of frmheadtotoe. triomphe is a duochrome color in the palette. The shade turns out to be a reddened brown with greenish duo tones.
Versailles is the color developed by Leesha of xsparkage. This is the highlight shade in the palette. Versailles is a creamy-gold shade with gold flecks.
Sigma Paris Palette

The blushes were conceptualized by all the gurus together in order to complement all the eye shadow shades in the palette. The two blushes are Rouge which is a Plum pink shade and Peche is a peachy pink shade. I love the Peche sooo much that there is serious danger of me emptying it soon. Both the blushes are matte which I love. Perfect for daytime wear without going OTT.
Sigma Paris Palette

Lumiere is a beautiful light champagne gold highlighter which I hate as it makes my skin look patchy.
The bonus of this palette are the two brushes. These brushes are their regular full size brushes but with shorter handles so as to fit them in the packaging. Sigma included the Large Angled Contour F40 and the Flat shader E55 with the Paris. And this just want me want to jump with joy.

The Paris comes in a box type packaging with a large mirror.  I find the packaging to be too bulky and not travel friendly at all. Sigma could have just compacted the packaging a lot instead of leaving wide spaces between the pans.

Price Of The Sigma Paris Palette: 

59$ regular price.  But I’ve seen it at 49$ special price every time I’ve visited their site. You can get a further discount if you use your affiliate ID or others’ special discounts. 
Sigma does ship internationally but beware of shipping and customs.

My Rating: 
4/5 ( reduced 1 for the hated packaging and overpricing)

Would I go looking for it again: I am undecided. I want the blushes more than the shadows. So I just might.

Overall a fabulous package with such beautiful colors that you would reach for this again and again and again.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
