One of the first signs that spring is coming (perhaps slowly, but surely!) is the arrival of new cosmetic collections in bright hues popping up in stores and online. Although new makeup is always exciting for a beauty lover like me, I often find myself a bit frustrated by the bright and light new shades that do not match the transitional winter to spring weather. When I purchase new spring products in February or March I often have to put them aside until later in April and May when the weather finally turns truly spring-like in the Chicago area. Sigma’a newest launch, the Born To Be Collection, is the perfect transitional collection in my opinion, because it combines neutrals with fun pops of color that are still appropriate for the season right now, but give a taste of the lighter mood of spring at the same time.
Sigma designed the Born To Be Collection “to bring sophistication to the sultry, smokey eye with unexpected color combinations of modern chic and urban edge perfect for the transition from day-t0-night.” The collection includes one eye shadow palette, three eyeliners, one powder blush, three lip glosses, and one lip concealer.
Smoke Screen Eye Shadow Palette ($39) – Features twelve different shades and finishes with cool undertones. Each shade is represented by sophisticated neutrals to bold brights offset by dark, dusty hues.
Kohl Eye Liner Pencils in IndigoBird, My Cloud, and Atomic Number 6 ($9 each) – Each eyeliner has a rich, creamy, and pigmented effect. Pair with your favorite eye shadows to create a customized collection.
Born To… Blush ($12) – The rose-wine colored blush has rich pigmentation with blendable wear.
Lip Gloss in Eleven, Get Ready, and Sheila ($10 each) – All three lip glosses container shimmer with an opaque, smooth, and creamy finish.
Lose the Halo Lip Concealer ($15) – The ALL-NEW Sigma Beauty Lip Concealer features a creamy, blend-able finish. Designed to ensure the lip color of choice is true to application, this product erases natural lip color for any skin tone. Can also be worn alone or to perfect the edge on lips for a smoother appearance.
