NEW! Sigma Brow Powders: Review + Swatches!

One of the many product launches from Sigma Beauty this season are their new Brow Powders.  Available in four colors, each powder features two shades and comes in a black plastic compact.  I'm happy to see these released, because until now Sigma only offered their Brow Kit, which contained more colors than I could need (or wear).


First up: Light and Auburn.  I'm glad Sigma included an Auburn duo in this collection because I feel red-tones are often excluded from brow product lines.  The light duo works on me perfectly, and the lighter shade is very similar to MAC Omega eyeshadow (the product I've been using for years).  I was a little skeptical of the darker color in the duo, but it has come in really handy because I will mix it with the lighter shade for a bolder brow.

The color payoff of these is moderate... nothing to get excited over.  However, I was surprised to find that I don't have a problem with this, because I can't get "carried away" as easily and overdo my brows.  I use a MAC 266 angled brush and have no problem building up the color to where I want it.

The two darker colors are Medium and Dark.  The big difference I see between these is Medium is cool-toned and Dark is warm-toned.

These duos are more pigmented than the lighter ones.  The darker shade of the Medium duo is just as deep as the Dark duo, so I think dark brows could probably go with either duo, depending on if they wanted to go warm or cool.

These brow powders retail for $14 and can be purchased in Sigma stores and on their website.


Overall, I like using my Brow Powder in Light.  I've really enjoyed mixing the colors depending on how light or dark I want my brows that day.  However, if you are looking for really pigmented color (especially in the lighter shades), I would skip it!

What do you like to use on your brows?
