Sigma Paris Palette Review & Swatches!

Hi My Loves!!!

As you guys probably know I took the week off for Mother's Day (it was lovely.. I got some projects done that I had been wanting to do).... I hope you all had an amazing day too :)

Anyway, I bought the new Sigma Paris Palette Limited Edition and used it a few times this week and thought I would share what I thought about it ;) 

It is a little pricey at $59.00 but it is a limited edition so I'm assuming that's why. It comes with 2 brushes (actually 2 of my favorites) the E55 and the F40. It also has 8 eyeshadows and 3 good size blushes.


They also send you a free gift if you spend over $30... it used to be a brush but now they give youa lovely little eyeshadow :)


I think the packaging is so cute!


Free eyeshadow which is Grasp.. a beautiful peach.





BRUSHES:

F40 (my favorite brush to apply my bronzer/contour)
E55 (my favorite brush to apply my browbone eyeshadow and lid shadow)




SHADOWS:

From Top to Bottom Right:
Eiffel, Seine, Louvre, Orsay, Elysees, Notre Dame

Top to Bottom Left:
Triomphe (my fave)
Versailles (my second fave)





I feel like the Louvre was a tad chalky but over a cream shadow I think it would build up really nicely. I absolutely love Triomphe, Versailles & Notre Dame.

For the most part they are all nicely pigmented and apply and blend very easily.

BLUSHES:

From Left to Right:
Rouge, Peche & Lumiere



The Rouge is a slight bit too mauve for me but I LOVE the Peche. It's a beautiful color for all different skin types. I feel like you could really build it up if you are slightly darker and if you are fair it will be perfect too :) The lumiere is more of a highlight with a soft pinky toned base. It has a soft shimmer and looks beautiful over the peche on the highest point of the cheekbone and on the apples of the cheeks.

All in all I would say this is a great palette. I am actually so happy that Sigma finally put some blushes into a palette because as you all know, I love me some blush :) It has my 2 favorite brushes, a nice selection of shades for shadow and comes in super cute packaging. Plus it has a good size mirror. I am definitely happy with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone who loves a luscious makeup palette. I only wish the rouge was a more pinky based rather than mauve but hey that's just me ;)

Hope this helps your decision!!

Thanks for reading!

Happy Monday :)

Sam

    2. Dear Anonymous. You seem like you are in a bad place at the moment. I am sorry you are feeling so sick. I am glad, however, that you have found the root to your sickness. This means that you can move forward and feel better - all you have to do is watch something online that makes you happy. Luckily no one is forcing you to watch what is making you sick - and therefore you're sickness isn't really a problem to begin with. Feel better.

    3. Jesus your sick in your head
      Very brave to comment anonymously like that
      As we say in the Netherlands: ga een eind fietsen idioot

      Sam I love you and see you as a big sister

    5. There is something really psychologically wrong with you. By calling her such demeaning names doesn't make you any better of a person now does it? It shows precisely what kind of character you are, what your mentality is like, and how much of a bully you are. If you have an issue with someone than ignore them, and move on with your life. Go educate yourself on being a better human being. Obviously you don't have much of a life of your own if you are clearly logged on a computer, watched her youtube videos, come to her blog, and leave such tasteless comments. Perhaps you are an attention seeking BLEEP? People like you sicken me with disgust...grow up. You are not a child, act like an adult and quit meddling in other people's lives.


      Obviously a lot of people appreciate Sam, and her insights on beauty, food, and DIY. If no one was interested and she didn't get such an overwhelming response...she wouldn't do it. But she has people who adore her, and love her. I consider Sam like someone who is a friend to me. She's humble, sweet, loving, and caring...unlike your pathetic self. There is only one negative nelly here and it's you....and there are hundreds of us whom love her, and will stand up for her.

    1. U seem like a waste of time as well, a wet fart serves more of a purpose then you do

    2. what is wrong with people?
      why do you care what she spends HER money on? It isn't your money...
      just remember karma is a b*tch... next time you waste your energy on leaving nasty comments.

      Delete
    3. You have no sense of respect for anyone. Have some class, wait you probably doesn't know what that means. Pity on you.

      If she wants to spend her money on something that interests her that is absolutely alright. She isn't hurting anyone, she isn't committing a crime, she purchased a cosmetic palette that interests her. Obviously make up has no interest to you....so why are you on this blog again? There is a lovely "X" on the right hand cover...if at any moment you feel like leaving a negative comment to try to bring Sam down...feel free to exit. It's FREE, if you are so worried about having a sense in value of things.

      She isn't a waste of time...it's wonderful to have her views on certain products...it helps others figure out if it's something that they would use or enjoy themselves. I personally enjoy her insights on products...just because she has purchased something doesn't mean you necessarily have to. You don't have to judge her either.

      Perhaps you should look into your own life...and get a sense of class. Learn how to talk to people, respect people, and keep certain thoughts to yourself. No one wants to hear it. You wouldn't want someone to come at you sideways....than don't do that to her or anyone else.

      Learn some respect because you lack a lot of it.

  6. I don't see how deleting posts gives popularity? Oh that's right it doesn't. What does is people talking about it and telling people go read this because blah blah blah. Its funny how the people who dislike sam are the biggest offenders at bringing traffic here. Dipshits. Stop talking about it. Its amazing how you also say so much shit about her "fans" and "crazed" fans as you call it, but at least they stick around because they like her. You stick around for the misery and that makes you worse.

  7. I was so sad last week, when I came went looking for Sam's Friday Fav's and Fudgearoo's, and didn't find it...then I began to worry that something had went wrong with her pregenancy...so glad it wasn't that! If you people don't like Sam, why do you watch her? I think you are so jealous of her, you can hardly see or think straight. I am subscribed to several people...and guess what, there is one that I have pretty much quit watching,and I have never felt the need to commented on her channel; and she is the only one that I have never made a commented to. I believe in that old saying, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." Samantha's channel is my favorite though!

  8. I want this so bad! The only thing that gets me is that Sigma always charges so much for shipping! Yeah, you get $10 off with the coupon code but then they charge 8.95 for shipping? Holy smokes! That's ridiculous. For those of us on a tight budget, it's super hard to be able to spend that much even though it's an amazing value. Wish I could get it but I know I won't. lol

  12. WHY POST ABOUT YOUR PREGNANCY THEN TAKE IT DOWN, TWAT. IF YOUR NOT GOING TO HAVE YOUR CHILDREN INVOLVED WITH YOUR YOUTUBE ANYMORE, THEN WHY KEEP PEOPLE INVOLVED? PEOPLE ARE OBVIOUSLY GONNA WANT TO SEE THEM. JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP OR PISS OFF OF YOUTUBE.

  13. Wow all I can say is some people have so much hate in their hearts. Really sad that they feel they should try to destroy someone with their harsh words. Also sad they have nothing better to do. I pray that all the haters find peace in their lives.. It's sure a better way to live if u can find peace.. Also this is Sam's blog if she wants to take something off she has every right in the world to do so. And I gotta say after reading all the messages on her last pregnancy blog I really don't blame her. Yes I'm sad but I can't be upset w her decision it's her life and her blog. She was nice enough to let us in a little bit and I was appreciative.
    Anyways Sam your an amazing woman and really strong.. Keep on doing what you do and sharing that contagious smile!!

  15. I know right !! She doesn't want anyone to ask about or want to see the children, but yet she keeps posting about her pregnancy ! We don't fucking CARE IF WE CAN'T see the thing!!! They had money all along, but just pretended not to so she can have people send stuff. Jay only got you the pretty stuff cause he is feeling bad he watches porn so much ! The one video she is like he doesn't watch porn no more when you could tell that he is a porn junky. she is so fucking retarded. Know one cares about your stupid makeup channel !

  18. Sam,
    You cannot control what other people think or say. There are absolute NUTJOBS everywhere, and yes they will hurt you, and they will say ridiculous and inapropriate stuff.
    Mostly they are people that have a problem with themselves, and who are miserable, so in a way we should feel sorry for them.

    All you can do is keep doing the wonderful job you're doing. You are successful for a reason. Never lose your smile, your energy and optimism. It is why people love you and want to watch your videos.
    You KNOW in your heart what your intentions are and that you are a GOOD person.
    Ignore the idiots.

  19. Look, case in point. Sam does these videos for $$$$ and nothing more. Sometimes her videos are interesting and sometimes they aren't. I personally enjoyed it more when Sam was being SAM. But, that is ultimately HER choice as to what she does and what she doesn't want to share.

    Look, I agree with the people who are very upset about the post that Sam put about not showing her new baby, especially since it felt like a big teaser with no reward at the end. I understand that, I really do. I was one of many who were very take aback and a little bitter about it. But I have moved on. It's her business what she decides to post and what she doesn't.

    I am one of the many people who have unsubscribed from her youtube account and it wasn't to be mean, rude, hateful or ugly. It was because I felt like Sam had become a stranger to her subscribers.

    Case in point- if you don't like her- UNSUBSCRIBE. That's one less $$$ she makes.

  20. I personally know Jay. His real name is actually Michael. Jay is his middle name. He has the Fred Flinstone mentality. The "little wifey" belongs at home raising kids and that's it. He controls the money, controls whether or not he lets Sam drive, etc. They are not the good people that they come across as on youtube. The only REAL thing is that precious baby boy that is now a distanct memory for all of us. If you don't believe me, google the names Samantha Scott and Michael Scheurman.

  21. lol he did change his name, what a fucking idiot.

  22. I don't agree with the way that things are being said, but come on they are right. If you don't want your children involved with your youtube anymore, don't keep them involved and keep telling them about your pregnancy.
