The Sigma Beauty Untamed Eyeshadow Palette Review

posted in: Makeup | 0

After the Cor-de-Rosa palette, Sigma just brewed up a new eyeshadow product to follow. It’s funky, it’s playful, and if want to up your makeup inhibitions, The Sigma Beauty Untamed Eyeshadow Palette could be the icebreaker you need.

The colour story is quite interesting and offers a decent mix of different finishes. While this palette came out with the whole Untamed Collection, I’ll leave the brushes and lip products alone for now and focus on the star of the show: the Untamed palette!

The Sigma Beauty Untamed Eyeshadow Palette contains 14 vegan eyeshadows. It is free of all harsh chemicals and probably one of the ‘cleanest’ palettes out in the market! With the shades offered, Sigma wants this palette to urge you to embrace every aspect of your personality. It has a myriad of colour combinations that you can mix to achieve whatever mood you’re after! Whether you’re feeling soft and romantic, edgy and dark, bold and unexpected or responsible and tame, this eyeshadow palette has got you covered!

Packaging

The Sigma Beauty Untamed Eyeshadow Palette

Similar to their Spring-release palette, the Untamed Eyeshadow palette comes in a printed cardboard packaging. It’s matte black with raised tiger strip details. Truly portraying a Tiger persona which Sigma associates the word “Untamed” with. The raised strips have a velvety texture and for a cardboard casing, it’s not too shabby. The lush velvet, tiger stripes make up for the cardboard!

The palette also has a useful mirror inside which is always convenient and in my opinion should come with every eyeshadow palette.

No Sigma palette is complete if it doesn’t come in with their signature brushes! The Untamed palette comes with a full-sized, double-ended, patented waterproof brush. It’s the same Sigma E38 Diffused Crease brush and E54 Medium Sweeper brush combo that really makes this palette worth the cash. The brush itself even comes with a 2-year warranty!

These are perfect for application and blending. Both brushes work amazingly well and pick up the eyeshadows with very little fallout.

It also features the ever-thoughtful detail of having an illustrated summary of the shades at the back of the packaging, for an easy time when following tutorials.

For $49 in the US, and £45 in the UK, the palette and brush is ready to unchain your makeup look fantasies!

Formula

I was impressed with the Cor de Rosa palette formula and even more so with this new one! The mattes are gorgeous and I don’t know if they’ve done some magic, but the metallic and shimmer shades have improved by a lot. They’re a wonder to wear and make playing with the eyeshadows too much fun!

Below are the shades broken down:

8 Mattes

Docile – Buttermilk beige matte

This shade applies as a pale cream colour. The formula is incredible. With the brush that came with the palette, there was barely any fallout. It spreads easily and layers beautifully without any patching or crumbling.

Feral – Rich ochre matte

Feral goes on the eyes with a clay terracotta colour. It is a gorgeous shade that can really be worn anytime any day.

Loyal – Sienna brown matte

This shade is a neutral sienna brown colour. It’s a great transition shade for the rest of the palette and I think works just as wonderful when used for eye contouring. When you layer this shade, it’s not too loud but the pigment is there. And even with a light hand, the pigment already shows!

Wicked – Blackest black matte

This shade is a black colour with a satin-like finish to it. It’s not patchy like the rest of the shadows and easy to layer.

Instinct – Fair mauve matte

This shadow has instant pigment. It’s the easiest shade I’ve worked with on this palette and to think that they’re all hassle-free formulas at this point. One dab on the pan to your eyes and bam! Instant eyeshadow colour. The shade itself is very pretty and is a true mauve colour with neutral undertones. And the formula is so buttery. I can see this shade work on any skin tone!

Rebel – Brick red matte

When it says brick red, it means brick red! This buttery matte formula is packed with saturated pigment and the red hue is perfect! Who says reds are hard to create? Not Sigma Beauty!

Camouflage – Forest green matte

Another green! This shade is a deep army green with a pretty satin-like finish. It’s also a unique shade in terms of the finish because it catches the light perfectly and looks vibrant on the eyes.

Boho – Warm bronze matte

Boho is a popping ochre shade when worn on the skin. It’s very beautiful and has a neutral undertone. This yellow shade can be worn even for really pale women!

Sigma Beauty’s matte shadow formulas are great. I’d say similar, maybe even better, than Jeffree Star’s matte formula! No chalkiness, minimal fallout and wonderfully buttery.

4 Metallics

Envy – Olive green metallic

Envy looks like a dark gold colour on the pan, but on the skin and eyes it actually looks like a metallic olive green with gold-toned shimmers. It’s almost like a duo-toned shadow formula but it’s not.

Green colours can be hard to work with especially for pale skin-toned women. This shade, however, looks very sophisticated. It’s just as pigmented as the mattes and shows a muted but pretty metallic finish. It’s not over the top gleaming. But still holds its own even without any light for reflection.

Hustle – Luxe gold metallic

Hustle goes on the eyes with a colour very similar to an actual rose gold coloured jewellery item. It is stunning! And the formula is very consistent. It’s very saturated and looks a lot more pigmented on the skin than it does on the pan.

It’s an extremely appealing colour and not a very common one even though golds make their way into most palettes. That’s a surprising bonus.

Moxie – Poetic pink metallic

This shade looks like a vibrant lavender-pink colour on the skin. It’s equally saturated and has this white/ivory sheen when worn. Super pretty and make my eyes look charming and youthful.

It has a richer colour when applied wet, but I think even without water, it still works beautifully.

Dauntless – Vibrant cobalt metallic

This shade is the colour counterpart for Rebel! It’s equally saturated and buttery. The metallic finish makes you look like a bombshell. It’s so sexy and classy at the same time. I am absolutely stunned by this shade. It’s a bright navy blue colour and the metallic finish combo on it is to die for!

Sigma Beauty’s metallic shadow formula is incredible. I hope they stick to this formula because it’s just top quality. They have this perfect balance of metallic-shimmer going on, and consistently have this duo-tone finish to it. They catch the light perfectly and create a highlight and shadow on the eyes! I love the formula!

2 Shimmers

Spirit – Brilliant ivory shimmer

This shade is a great topper for the rest of the eyeshadows, and can even be worn alone. It sticks and spreads nicely on the eyes without clumping, even when applied dry. It’s very pigmented and really shows in just one layer when applied wet.

Fierce – Light amethyst shimmer

Similar to Spirit, this shade is as pigmented and great to layer. It makes lilac— a pastel colour even more pastel! The shade has beautiful white and pink shimmers to it.

The shimmer shades are amazing. When applied wet, they have this almost foil-like sheen to them which makes it all the more stunning.

Is it Worthy?

A lot of the eyeshadows don’t really look like how they do on the packaging. They aren’t true to colour but it’s the best part about this product. Instead of being disappointed that they don’t look like how you expect them, the results will go above and beyond! The shades are stunning, saturated, and cause no issues at all when worn on the skin.

The dual-ended brush is a wonderful treat too! Sigma brushes are quality products and you know they’ll last a long time. On top of that, it has its own warranty. A warranty that lasts longer than my phone’s! That just makes this palette all the more special.

My Thoughts

Sigma Beauty Untamed Eyeshadow Palette is definitely a palette worth knowing. It’s a palette filled with quality eyeshadow formulas. And I’m telling you already, don’t sleep on this palette! Try it and feel for yourself how amazing the shadow formulas are. My favourite shades for each formula are easily Feral, Dauntless, and Fierce! How about you? Have you tried the palette yet and how was it for you? Let me know in the comments below.
