Hey Everyone! So I know I have been raving about the Sigma Resort Palette ever since I got it at IMATS LA earlier this year, but I thought it might be helpful to do a post about possible options for dupes of the shades in this palette. If you are just interested in getting the palette itself, you can get it for a limited time at : http://www.sigmabeauty.com/Resort_Palette_p/ep007.htm
The Resort Palette costs $42.00 plus shipping, but you can all the dupes for it for only about $30.00 ! All together it’s not a HUGE difference in price, but if you are just interested in a few of the shades, it’s a good deal.
**the Sigma Resort Palette Shade will be first, followed by the corresponding dupe**
Lets start with the eyeshadows! (PICTURES AND SWATCHES BELOW)
Muse : a cool charcoal grey with slight silver shimmer
NYX Glam Shadow in Boomerang : a slightly deeper cool charcoal grey with silver shimmer
Fawn : a cool bronze taupe with sliver shimmer, slight glitter chunks
Essence eyeshadow in Party All Night : a metallic warm taupe with slight bronze; slightly warmer than Fawn
Luna : a golden linen with slight gold shimmer
J.Cat Beauty Shimmery Powder in 102 Vanilla : a warm frosty light vanilla highlight; not as yellow as Luna
Topaz : a very warm medium brown
NYX Nude Matte Shadow in Dance The Tides : a warm medium brown. almost identical to Topaz, very slightly darker
Papaya : a medium peach coral with slight golden shimmer
NYX eyeshadow in Tropical : a medium peachy coral. almost identical to Papaya, slightly more coral
Moonbeam : a blue toned lilac purple with slight pink undertone
NYX eyeshadow in Purple : a light blue toned purple with fuchsia/pink undertone. much pinker than Moonbeam.
Neela : a bright turquoise with slight silver shimmer
NYX eyeshadow in Irises : a bright turquoise blue with silver shimmer. deeper than Neela.
Midori : a bright kiwi green
Ulta Eye Shadow in Going Green : a bright lime/kiwi green. lighter and more lime toned than Midori.
Heavenly : a muted neutral/warm coral with slight peach undertone.
** the shade papaya / NYX Tropical is very similar to the Heavenly, and could act as a dupe.
Liquid Highlighter :
Luminesce : a light yellow gold
** I could not find an affordable dupe of this product, but the shade Luna / J.Cat Beauty 102 Vanilla would offer the same effect.
Eye Pencils :
Daydream : a bright and deep turquoise
Total Intensity by Prestige Eyeliner in Lively Turquoise : a bright aqua turquoise. more frosted than Daydream.
Earth Goddess : a warm deep brown
J.Cat Beauty Roll It Up Auto Eyeliner in 105 Bistre : a warm deep brown. almost identical to Earth Goddess.
