The Sigma Beauty Enchanted Palette caught my attention immediately when it got revealed. I tried to contain myself and I didn’t buy it when it launched. After the launch, pictures of this palette started circulating and made me want to buy it even more. Then Sigma hit my weak spot; they had a sale, sitewide. Of course, I couldn’t contain myself and so the Sigma Beauty Enchanted Palette became mine.
I’ve never tried Sigma Beauty eyeshadows before so I was very curious to see how I like their formula and if the shadows are pigmented. I do love the Sigma Brushes, I’ve mentioned my favorite brushes in this blogpost. If you haven’t tried any of they’re brushes, you definitely should!
I love how the Sigma Beauty Enchanted palette also comes with a dual-sided brush. So you’ll get a 14 pan eyeshadow palette and 2 brushes for $49, which I think is a good deal.
I’m not even sure what really draws my attention to the palette. I don’t feel like this is a palette I would normally go for, but I just had to get it. I do love the soft pink colors in this palette a lot and it has some beautiful shades to darken up the crease. The metallics are very versatile, which is nice for creating different looks.
But the most important question, is this palette any good?
Sigma Beauty Enchanted Palette Swatches
I have to admit that the matte shades disappointed me a bit. The matte shades swatched a bit patchy (which you can see on the picture). I also noticed some kickback in the pan after I dipped my finger in it for a swatch.
However, arm swatches don’t say everything so I still had hope it would be better on the eyes. Sadly I had the same effect on my eyes as well. The matte shades applied a bit patchy but I was able to blend that away. However, the shades didn’t really show up on my eyes. I ended up using another palette to make sure that the color would show up. Even the darker shades didn’t really have a lot of pigment.
Nevertheless, I do like the metallics and duo-chrome shades in this palette. These swatch very nicely and do show up on my arm and eyes.
I have to be honest, this isn’t an amazing palette. Yes, I do like the shade variety and the shades look very promising but the mattes aren’t worth it. This palette contains 7 mattes and 7 metallics, so this means you’ll pay $49 for a dual-ended brush and 7 nice shades. In the end, it’s cheaper than buying a palette and two brushes separately but still, I don’t think it’s worth it.
Sigma Beauty is an amazing brand, so I definitely don’t want to bash them. I do think they could improve their matte shades. This palette would’ve been a hit if the mattes weren’t patchy and lacking pigment.
I don’t think I’ll grab this palette a lot but I do think I’ll use the metallic and duo-chrome shades in this palette. I have some palettes with lovely matte shades which will look very cute with the metallic and duo-chrome shades in the Sigma Beauty Enchanted palette.
Did you try this palette? What are your thoughts?
