You always hear hype about Urban Decay palettes, but another brand that produce exceptional eyeshadows are Sigma and I don't think they are always given the recognition they deserve.
I have been playing around with Sigma's Smoke Screen Palette for a while now and it has fast become one of my all time favourites.
From the Born to Be Collection the Smoke Screen Palette comes with 12 amazing shades, with a fab balance of pastels and dusty hues. These eyeshadows are so diverse, you can transform your look from day to night in a second.
You get everything from this palette from frost finishes to speckles of shimmer, with your essential mattes thrown in for good measure.
Eye Shadows from left to right:
Veiled - Champagne Peach (Shimmer), Opulent - Copper (Frost), Ember - Brown Bronze (Frost) Thunderhead, Coffee & Cream Finish (Matte)
Misty - Light Violet (Matte), Haze - Mauve (Matte), Svelte - Dirty Stone (Matte), Rave - Eggplant Brown with specks of gold (Shimmer)
Nebula - Blueberry-Gold (Duo Chrome), Atmosphere Deep Red-Brown (Shimmer), Cinders - Gun Metal Grunge (Frost), Almost Jet - Charocoal-Black (Sheen)
My particular favourites are Haze, Rave & Thunderhead.
I find myself reaching out for this palette every day. I just adore it. The colours are really pigmented and they last ages - even longer with a primer. The residue is minimal. This is a good makeup bag size and had has a decent sized mirror to go. Perfect for out and about.
Sigma Smoke Screen Palette is available to buy from Cocktail Cosmetics who have a huge range of products.
