This palette is small and is made of heavy-duty cardboard packaging. It folds open and stays shut via a magnet. The lid has a large mirror inside but won’t stay open without you holding it.
For the most part, the shades in this palette have a formula that’s very typical of Sigma’s eyeshadow formula. The shadows are soft, creamy, smooth, and pigmented. The shimmery and frosty shades exemplify this formula. And the matte shades follow close behind.
The only real exception that I found in this palette was with Bloom, which was more sheer than the other shades. The more sheer finish makes this peachy-orange shade more wearable, but if you’re expecting to get the exact color you see in the pan, the shade doesn’t quite get there.
And the last shade–IG2–is different from the other shimmering shades in the pan in that it has larger flecks of shimmer that produce a lot of fall-out.
Otherwise, this is a great palette with mostly shimmering shades that are reminiscent of Summer, with shades that easily transition into Fall.
Ease of Use: 9.5/10
All of these shadows apply smoothly and evenly.
For $39.00 you get 12 colors and 0.43 ounces (12 grams). This is on the slightly more expensive side, given the amount of product you get.
