Sigma Sigma Sigma.

Sooo, after reading numerous positive and negative reviews on Sigma I decided to go ahead and purchase anyway! After all, you only live once. My outcome was a positive one. Everything came packaged safely and unharmed.


So this is the package my things came in. Simple packaging. Cool.


Waaa laaa! This is what you see after you open the box.



That is the box the brushes came in. I purchased just the regular essential kit. It can be found here. The packaging for the brushes was pretty cute. 


The brushes came in a plastic bag. They also were in their own plastic covering. I think that is great they did that to make sure they were extra safe for shipping! 


Here are the lovely brushes. You can read about what brushes came with this pack here.

I also picked up one other item!



Yup!! You guessed it. I bought the limited edition Paris Makeup Palette. You can find this palette here. This palette's packaging is beautiful and I must say so is the product inside. The colors are lovely, and I am so excited to try out some different looks with them. This palette was made by Sigma as well as a few beauty gurus and it was made to complement all skin tones. Sooo, this should be great for everyone to try. 


The inside looks similar to the outside. These colors are quite lovely! It comes with 8 eyeshadow colors as well as 2 blushes and a highlighter. An added bonus is the eyeshadow brush and angled contour brush. 


Above are two photos of the colors Eiffel, Seine, Louvre, and Orsay. The first photo is with the flash, and the second is without. Believe me the colors look better in person.


Above are photos of Elysees, Notre Dame, Triomphe, and Versailles. I must say these colors are my absolute favorite! Beautiful neutral colors with a shimmer. Can not wait to use these!!! 


Sorry about this last photo but in this photo are Rouge, Peche, and Lumiere. The first two are blushes and the last one is a highlighter. These are pretty and i'm excited to use these as well. :) 


Also with this palette you get a little booklet explaining about the palette and why each guru chose which monument or place to represent each color. Above is a photo of them. 


OOO, and I recieved a free eyeliner brush. Woo



Don't mind the messy applications but here is what I'm wearing on my nails and toes at the moment. A water marble effect on my nails(looks better in person) and an ombre effect on my toes! Loving my toes right now.


What're you all wearing on your nails and toes at the moment? :)
