Royally Striking - True Purple 

Sigma have just expanded their range with gel liners, I don't know about you but other than MAC's collections different shade eyeliners are a mission to get your hands on. Well Sigma have answered that easily by releasing these gel liners in stunningly unusual shades that are also paraben free.

The one I was most excited for was 'Royally Striking' I have been looking for the perfect purple eyeliner for a while I wanted one that was not only a deep's purple but one that was 'striking' too! This colour is perfect however can 'dilute' very easily meaning it can look washed down quite abit (you'll understand what I mean from the pic below) so needs a couple of layers.

'Liberally Toasted' is the lighter brown out of the two in this collection however when swatted its come up pretty dark which is fine by be this glided on easily with no hassle.

'Unexpected' seems to be one of the popular and most unusual colour but nevertheless just as beautiful, this out of the four was the one which was easy to work with and had the softest texture.

'Standout Peacock' is so much more stunning than I expected and I would say has to be my favourite, there is one niggle about this, the texture is harder to work with almost grainy like you can see what I mean from the above swatch and pic below, you don't really get a equal finish with it as the texture is pretty dry. So your left with a deep Indigo Blue or a a washed away version of it. Its a tricky one but the way I found it warms best is by adding a touch of makeup remover to a cotton pad and dampening the brush before going ahead and swirling it in the pan, this trick works with any dried up gel liners too!

So overall I love the shades Sigma have released but the texture on a couple needs some work but that maybe why these shades aren't readily available on the market by other brands due to the pigmentation for these kind of shades however I've found a way to work with them and I'm willing to cope with that.
