Like most Sigma Products
, I was counting down the days for the Resort Palette
release! I have seen little sneak peeks here and there and each time I got a glimpse of the palette I became more excited. On March 18, this gorgeous limited edition palette was released and I made sure to get my hands on it ASAP
! I pretty much stalked the website the morning it launched and last week I finally had this baby in my hands!
- 8 Eyeshadows: Muse, Fawn, Luna, Topaz, Papaya, Moonbeam, Neela and Midori
- 1 Blush: Heavenly
- 1 Liquid Highlighter: Luminesce
- 1 Dual-ended Eye Liner Pencil: Daydream & Earth Goddess
This palette is lovely and perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer season. At first the eyeshadow shades may look a bit intimidating, however, the fact that the palette includes neutral shades like Muse and Fawn, makes this palette very versatile, enabling you to play up or tone down fun looks!
Inspired by exotic Caribbean islands, the eyeshadow shades in this palette are incredible! All are very pigmented and unique in their own way. Fawn and Luna are gorgeous to wear alone during the summertime when wearing less makeup is a much more appealing; and Neela and Midori scream Bahamas, Grand Cayman and even Aruba! There is something about Midori that just gets me! I went through a Midori Sour phase and this shade is so much fun, and actually brings back fun memories for me!

The blush, Heavenly, is very pretty! It may not be my “go-to” blush or my favorite just because I am not sure the tone works too well with my fair skin, but during the summer when I hopefully get a bit more color, I think it will work beautifully.
I was especially excited about the liquid highlighter. I have a thing for products like this and this shade has a gorgeous light bronze/golden shimmer that I just love! I wish that the applicator was a bit larger and the brush a bit thicker, so I could get more product out at once, but I’m certainly not complaining. I would usually apply liquid highlighter with a duo fibre brush like the F55 from Sigma
or a dampened beauty blender.
The dual-ended pencil is very pretty. It is very rare that I wear any shade other than a black, beige or navy, but I am always willing to try new things. Daydream, the ocean blue shade, is perfect to add a pop of color to any look; and Earth Goddess…well you could pretty much use that one for anything! I’m usually not into brown pencils unless they are really dark, but this one is really pretty and with the right look, I think I can pull it off.

Bottom line, like most (if not all), Sigma
products, I love this palette. From the variety of products in the palette to the gorgeous packaging design, I am so happy that I have this palette in my possession and I will try my best to incorporate these shades into my summer looks! This palette makes me wish I could be back in Punta Cana on my honeymoon!
Alright…enough vacation pictures…I’m getting anxious to go back!!!
