Swatches: Sigma Créme de Couture Palette

Sigma - Creme de Couture

Hey guys, just a quick swatch post of one of my Christmas gifts to my sister—the Sigma Crème de Couture Palette. I had such a strong urge to buy this for myself, but let’s face it. I’m not going to get a lot of mileage out of this one. It’s a beautiful collection of pastel-y matte eyeshadows heavily inspired by French macarons.

There are sixteen shades in all—each corresponding to a macaron flavor. The packaging is quite nice; a slim cardboard box reminiscent of macaron and pastry boxes.

Here are the shades from the first two rows:
Sigma - Creme de Couture - Swatches 1
L-R, swatched on bare skin: Redberry Rose, Apricot Flower, Passion Fruit, Cherry Blossom, Meyer Lemon, Ginger Pumpkin, Café Au Lait, Blueberry Cream

Here are the shades from the last two rows:
Sigma - Creme de Couture - Swatches 2
L-R, swatched on bare skin: Violet Whip, Lavender Honey, Cassis, Elderberry, Crème de Menthe, Blue Chocolat, Almond Pear, Citron Pistachio

Overall, it’s an alright palette, the biggest pro being that they have the weirdest colors ever that are still somewhat dainty, and they’re all matte. They’re not the best quality of eyeshadows, but you can definitely work with them to create stunning looks. I don’t know what drew me to this—believe me, I was lemming so hard—but now that I look at the colors, I’m actually a little inspired to do some looks. Weirdly enough. So, if you have this palette, or some similar shadows, stay tuned!

Unfortunately, this is not in stock on Sigma anymore which is where I bought this baby, since it was a limited edition palette released in September. However, you can probably find one from makeup swaps or eBay. This palette was $32, for your reference.
