NEW Sigma Beauty Extended Wear Eye Liner Collection

Today I'm bringing you my thoughts on Sigma Beauty's new collection of 9 "Extended Wear" eye liners. 


They're available both individually and are also sold in color-coordinating "kits" of three (plus a brush).
I love the color-coordinating packaging. It really makes it easy to find the color you're looking for, rather than all-black packaging, searching for a name.


The individual eye liners are $9 each, while the eye liner kits (of 3 liners and a brush) are $33.
All but one of the eye liners are very shimmery. While overall, I'm not a fan of very frosted, shimmery eye liners (they can usually come off a bit softer and less pigmented than a matte formula), some of these I really love.  
Check out all my thoughts and swatches below....

top-bottom:
Enlighten, Balance, Boost
*These three shades are available individually or together in the "Neutral" kit, along with an E21 brush.


Enlighten is a "shimmery soft gold" and a great shade to use in the inner corner or along the lower lash line for highlighting.

Balance is a "shimmery chocolate brown" that is a bit softer in pigment than a typical brown eye liner. However, it's got a lot of soft (not chunky) shimmer that really transfers and gives it a bit of something different.

I really love Boost. It's described as a "matte rich black" I actually wore this shade a few days in a row and found it to be really easy to apply and just as long wearing as some of my other favorite pencil liners. This one is my favorite in the collection. Not just because it's black, but because the formula is awesome. I really wish there were a brown equivalent of it in the collection.



Downplay, Declare, Drift
*These three shades are available individually or together in the "Warm" kit, along with an E20 brush.


Downplay is a "shimmery antique rust" shade that would look gorgeous smudged along the lower lash line to really emphasize blue eyes.

Declare is a very soft "shimmery deep eggplant" shade. I wish it were a bit darker to wear as actual eye liner though. While I LOVE purple/eggplant liners, this one is a bit too soft for me to use as an actual liner.

Drift is a "shimmery vibrant yellow-gold" liner that would be perfect along the lower lash line or even as a base for a really bright gold eye look.


Focus, Electrify, Flirt
*These three shades are available individually or together in the "Cool" kit, along with an E30 brush.


Focus is a really pretty "duo-chrome green-brown" that actually reads (without flash) a bit gray. It definitely changes a bit in different light (as duo-chromes do), and is actually a good shade to wear around the entire eye for a softer look.

Electrify confuses the heck out of me. It's described as a "shimmery royal purple" which it is, however, the packaging and product itself looks very royal, almost navy blue.  I think that's what this collection is really missing.  A good deep blue. I do really like this shade though. It reminds me of Parfait Amour by MAC. Good bright purple bases are hard to find, so this would be great to use under a bright purple eye shadow or just as well as an eye liner. 

Flirt is a "shimmery vivid turquoise" that is definitely one of my favorites in this collection. The pigmentation is great and I love how the color reads far more green than blue. Good green liners can be hard to find.


So what are your thoughts? Any favorites you've got your eye on?

  15. they look not very pigmented... maybe that's not the right word. But they're just not impressing me for some reason. I'll have to try them out myself.

  18. It's so weird to me that buying a pack of three is more expensive than buying three individually. I know you get the brush, but I don't need any more brushes so that's not a good incentive. I'll have to think about it.

  21. How do these pencils wear? I love the colors you've shown! I've been wearing Urban Decay 24/7 liners and love how they last. I just wonder how these last.

    Thanks!!
