Bare: As a wearer of neutral shades, I naturally gravitate towards the Bare palette. Bare is Sigma’s neutral palette with 4 mattes and 4 shimmers. I like having both a glitter and a matte black, but I kind of wish there were room for another matte brown shade. Hitch leans towards gray when applied, so I’m missing that fantastic brown crease color here. The glitters in Shine can be chunky, so I will be willing to forgo it in exchange for a matte brown or gold tone shadow. I love that there are equal amounts of shimmers and mattes in the palette. A big problem I personally have with UD Naked palette is that there are way too many shimmers.
Dare: I don’t really understand the color choice here. The Dare palette makes for a wonderful sunset look, but I don’t see much practical use in the palette alone. The light shimmers in this palette are similar and can make good highlight colors. The darker shadows, while striking and bold, can be difficult to wear often.
Flare: Flare is my favorite of the three palettes. I can use it to make a neutral or an exciting look. This would be the palette to tote around on vacation. Bare has my favorite normal colors but is not neutral and work-ready enough for me as a whole palette, so to have a little fun, I would pick Flare. Does anyone else think the red/fiery palette should have been named Flare?
