My Take: Sigma Bare Eye Palette

Sigma Beauty Bare Eye Palette Review Swatch

What It Claims
The Sigma Beauty BARE palette is a must for everyday use. Ideal to create classic neutral looks, BARE is perfect for accentuating your best features without too much colour distraction. Highlight inner corners, emphasize your crease, brighten your brow bone and enhance your lash line.

The Good
  • An excellent nude palette with all the basic shades from blacks, browns and neutrals.If smoky eyes is your thing then BARE is all you need.
  • The pigmentation is pretty good with the lighter shades more pigmented than the darker ones.
  • A good mix of dark-neutral shades with matte, satin and shimmery finish.
  • Lasting power is decent enough, but I would highly recommend using a primer to get the most of the shadows. 
  • It's a great palette for beginners or if you love hoarding eye palettes.
  • The duo brushes are definitely a big bonus.They are of the same quality as the original and are versatile.I love using the E30 for smudging out my eyeliner and the E25 is great for buffing out colours.
  • The shadows are of good quality, the darker shades apply smoothly while the lighter shades aren't chalky at all.
  • Nil fallouts for the lighter shades.There was some fallout in case of the blacks but nothing major.
  • The palette works out a bargain for the given quality and quantity.Each shadow works out at $4.35.Plus you get two brushes worth $9 each free.
  • I love the packaging.The box is sturdy and the magnetic top ensures that it stays close.It is a bit bulky overall, but super cute nonetheless.

The Bad
  • Even though the palette works out cheap the shipping totally sucks making it expensive overall.
  • Only available online.
  • Needs a primer to boost lasting power.
  • The darker shades for some odd reason seep onto the sides of the pan and makes the whole thing messy.
  • Bulky package means it's not very travel friendly.
Love It Or Chuck It
I love the BARE palette for a lot of reason, but the one reason that stands out is that it's a close enough dupe of the Urban Decay Naked Palette, which has been on my lust list for a while now.While the UDNP consists of all shimmers the BARE palette is more versatile with a mix of mattes, satins ands shimmers and costs less too(UDNP priced at $48.)The BARE palette is great for everyday with its set of neutral shades and can be glammed up for night too.Like I said if Smokey eyes are your thing then this is a must have.
