Sigma Eyeshadow Palette in Dare: Review & Swatches!

Today's post features the Sigma eyeshadow palette in Dare: an 8-shade collection of pink, red, and gold toned shadows paired with a dual-ended eye brush!


The packaging of this palette is very similar to the original Urban Decay Naked palette. It is a rectangular cardboard case with a magnetic closure and rectangular eyeshadows. I am a big fan of this style of packaging, both for this product and the Naked palette. I think it is easy to use yet somehow slim enough to be easy to travel with.


The color range of this palette is quite unique... you don't see many red/pink based palettes released. My favorite shades are Grasp (peachy pink) and Shout (bright matte yellow). Shout is an intimidating shade, but used in small doses can add a really fun pop of color to the eyes! The brush included is a dual ended E20/E45.

Surrender, Grasp, Chase, Escape, Reveal, Catch, Shout, Vanish

I was really happy when I swatched these. I reviewed the Bare palette a couple of weeks ago and the pigmentation was mediocre, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that was not the case with this palette. The colors are all nicely pigmented and applied well!

Overall, if you think you would get good use out of these shades, I definitely recommend this palette. Personally, these colors aren't really my style for winter, but will look great in the spring/summer when I get a bit of a tan! These retail for $35 and can be purchased at SigmaBeauty.com.

Do you change your makeup shades with the seasons?

  4. Would love to see a tutorial with colors like these. I tend to stick to neutrals but I want to expand and it's hard to figure out how to wear reds, I also have trouble with greens.

  10. I love the deep purple colour but I'm not sure about the yellow, I think it would be difficult to wear.
