Sigma Paris Palette- Swatches, Photos

By  |  61 Comments


Oh my goodness. Remember me? I’m Leesha, incase you forgot, considering my little MIA break went on a bit longer than anticipated.

I’ll have to do a blog post on this, but long story short I’ve finally got my own place, its this amazing condo and I’m FINALLY having all of my belongings delivered to me on Thursday. Luckily the condo came furnished, so I have things like a bed and kitchen utensils, but I’m so so so excited to get all of my stuff and get everything organized and be a happy little Leesha in my little home :)

ANYWAYS, something super super awesome came out on Monday. Some of you may remember me posting these photos waaay back in September. Sigma Beauty brought some super awesome Youtubers to Paris to get inspired to create a Paris themed makeup palette. It’s finally out! It’s really exciting to be a part of something like this, and to be able to design an eyeshadow from scratch based on something that inspires you.

Sigma Paris Palette 98

The shade I was assigned was Versailles. Now, I know that this isn’t necessarily a “Leesha” color. I’m sure a lot of you thought that awesome teal in the center was mine.. nope! That’s Suzy’s :) The Palace of Versailles is Verrrry gold, and has this amazing room called the Hall of Mirrors-

It’s just breathtakingly beautiful. The chandeliers white-gold inspired my color- plus, I had an idea of what everyone else was choosing for colors and thought the palette really needed a lighter, highlight shade to balance everything out. The color looks awesome on the lids as well :)

So here is an extremely picture heavy post showing you the Paris Palette :) Hope you like!!

Some of the shades, specifically the ones with a matte base and glitter, really need a good sticky base to shine. Here is Eiffel and Orsay shown over NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk (left) and with no base (right) for comparison.

Blushes & Highlighter- Rouge, Peche, Lumiere

Overall I really love how well-rounded this palette turned out. With the face and eye brush, the two blushes and highlighter, mirror, and a nice array of shadows, its pretty and functional :) The only part I’m not overly excited about is the packaging. I love the mosaic-style design, but it is a bit bulky, and because the shadows/blushes are not indented much, the palette will definitely get dirty with use. you can already see Eiffel was a bit messy, and those photos were before I even swatched!

The palette is available for $59 from Sigma Beauty (see it here), but if you use code XSPARKAGE at checkout, you get $10 off for a total of $49.

All in all I’m super excited about being involved in this :) Expect a few more FOTDs using this palette in the coming weeks!!

    Ou Leesha I’m excited to see you back in action! I ordered the palette last night, it’s so exciting to own something that you, and a bunch of other Youtubers I look up to and admire have come together to make. I can’t wait to see it in person :)

    I wish Orsay had a little more pigmentation… but that doesn’t stop me from positively LUSTING after this palette. :)

    ooo some of the colours are gorgeous and I’ll be positively lemming for anything paris related….but the price tag kind of put me off. I can get a UD palette for that price!

    What an incredibly gorgeous palette!  Versailles is my favorite kind of gold.  Not only are the eyeshadows lovely, but the packaging is very nice.  At first I was thinking this is a bit expensive but then I noticed that it comes with two brushes.  I can’t wait to see your looks with it!

  41. Ainareiel

    May 11, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    Oh my god this is beautiful. And not very expensive when you get fantastic brushes too!!

    I know this has nothing to with the product but I have a request, more of a suggestion really. How about doing a series of make up looks inspired by pure emotion. Happiness, depression, anger, etc. And don’t think to hard, just stare at your pallets and choose which colors make you feel certain emotions. :) Just a suggestion, you can take it or leave it.

    Can’t wait to see the looks you come up with !!

    Well done Leesha!!! Though not the brightest of them all, but Im IN LOVEEE with your color, and normally the lightest shade wouldnt be my favourite!!!!!

    omg i wanna use Triomphe and Versailles together.

  49. Seraphyl

    May 12, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    Triomphe looks a lot like a dupe for the MAC pigment Blue Brown! Looove that color~!

    I saw the vlog from your trip on Tiffanys channel. Paris looks amazing.. and what a beautiful palette you all made.

  51. Natasha

    May 12, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    i love notre dame and triomphe, and of course versailles. its awesome how you get a proper blush brush with the palette, but i think the sleeve of the packaging looks better than the actual palette!

  52. Amanda

    May 13, 2012 at 4:55 am

    Am I crazy for being put off of the entire palette because of one shade? I initially thought from the zoomed-out pictures that Triomphe was a shimmery gunmetal. Then I realized from the swatches that it’s ANOTHER brown/blue/green duochrome deal. More power to anyone who likes those, but I can’t stand them, and unfortunately they’re EVERYWHERE!!!!  :[

    good to have you back, and i really like your color in palette, its calm, beautiful and cool for summer ::)

    In relation to your latest video. Cold water does not make red hair last longer, all it does is seal the cuticle better after conditioning for shinier hair. The BEST shampoo for red hair that i’ve found is by delorenzo in their ‘novafusion’ range. I’ve used ‘Burgandy’ and ‘Cherry Red’ and loved them both but I’ve been told ‘Fire Red’ is the brightest. The only problem i’ve found is it doesnt clean the hair properly but using another shampoo than the red shampoo than a conditioner (the range also has conditioners but I haven’t used them) works great.

    I SO Love this palette and I hope it is still around when I get my next budget in June. With the discount. I especially Love Versailles and Orsay they are the stand out colors of the palette. The golden, white highlight color necessary for just about every look, and the Versailles is such a wonderful focal color and it definitely will be the “pop” of color for many looks. All the other colors are beautiful as well the necessary matte and tri-color brown base and others are wonderful as well. The blushes and highlights will work for just about anyone, throw in the Sigma brushes and it’s just about a perfect palette to set the mood for Paris.
