The Sigma Beauty BARE palette is a must for everyday use. Ideal to create classic neutral looks, BARE is perfect for accentuating your best features without too much color distraction. Highlight inner corners, emphasize your crease, brighten your brow bone and enhance your lash line. With BARE’s color selection, you can easily create day and night looks seamlessly and as subtle or as bold as you wish. BARE is perfect for a natural yet improved you!

Each palette retails for $35 and are all available now on the Sigma website. So, it's a little over $3 for each shadow and brush. What do you think about them? If I had to choose one, I'd choose the Bare Palette, as it's the most suitable for neutral, every-day makeup looks. I wonder what the quality is like?

  4. I like Bare but they look like they copied the Naked Palette.

  5. @Sara - lots of companies have their own neutral palettes out. ELF has one that's a dupe of Naked but costs only $5. NYX has one that has more colors than Naked (plus glosses) which costs only $25. The Sigma Bare contains only 8 shadows to Urban Decay's 12 and costs only $13 less.

    Here's a break down in cost.

    Naked costs $48 and contains 12 shadows - 12 x 1.3g e 12 x 0.05 US oz; Eyeshadow Primer Potion: 3.7ml e 0.13 US fl oz. The primer alone costs $9 and their brush is $22. Each of their individual shadows (0.05 US oz) costs $17. The value on Naked is $235.

    If you were to deduct the cost of the primer and brush from the $48 set then the cost for the palette alone is $17 for 12 shadows.

    Now compare that to Bare by Sigma. The two brushes each cost $9 individually so deduct the $18 from the $35 cost and the palette alone is $17 for 8 shadows.

    $17 ÷ 12 = $1.416666666666667 per Urban Decay shadow.

    $17 ÷ 8 = $2.125 per Sigma shadow.

    It's a $2.84 difference in palettes ($2.13 - $1.42 = $0.71 x 4 = $2.84). So in my opinion it's worth buying Naked over Sigma since you get a primer and a brush plus 12 fantastic colors. Yes, total price is more ($48 to $35) but you get more.
