So you know when you’re just driving along and flipping through the radio stations and every song that comes on sounds like an obnoxious video game or, like, somebody is shouting at you because they’re either in love, falling out of love or about to get cray-cray in da club with Grey Goose and strippers?

Then, when you can’t take it anymore, you turn to the easy listening station and ah… Everything is peaceful, mellow and serene again. :)

That’s how I feel about these three blushes from the Sigma Enlight collection — the cheek color equivalents of a sleepy Norah Jones ballad.

And that is not a bad thing. Nope, not at all.

I mean, sure, when I see a bold, bright red pan, assuming I’m in the right mood, BRING IT. But I don’t always like being challenged by my blushes, and on those days, these neutrals should do the trick.

This is my first time wearing Sigma’s blushes, and I like ‘em. Like MAC’s, they go on with very little patchiness, and they barely need a flick of the wrist to blend.

All three are supposed to warm and calm your hectic makeup routine…

OK, I can get down with that. Like “Ommmmm” for my cheeks!

Sigma Blush - Peaceful, $12

Blush — Peaceful ($12)

Peaceful, a shimmery, peachy beige, is the lightest of the three and looks more like a highlighter on me, so I wear it on my upper cheekbones. I think this one could look really pretty on pale skin.

Sigma Blush - Mellow, $12

Blush — Mellow ($12)

And I have a feeling that Mellow, a medium pinkish beige with a sheen finish, will be the most universally flattering.

Sigma Blush - Serene, $12

Blush — Serene ($12)

As for the darkest color, Serene, a rosy brown with a matte finish, it reminds me of MAC Blushbaby and I like it. Maybe it’s the way it makes my cheeks look naturally flushed (and my pores slightly smaller, go figure).

When I apply these in the morning, at the end of my workday, my cheeks still look great (assuming Tabs didn’t make me work a ton of overtime). I’d say they last about eight hours. There is some fading…but I can tell there’s still some blush there.

Unfortunately, these blushes aren’t the easiest to find. Sigma is carried by only a handful of retailers here in North America (you can check here to see if there’s one in your neck of the woods). If your interest is piqued, you may have to buy them online, which is a big blow to those of us who need/like our instant gratification. :)

But to paraphrase Yoda, “Good stuff, these are. Hunting down, they’re worth.”

PRICE: $12 each
AVAILABILITY: All three blushes arrive with the rest of the 17-piece Enlight Collection December 9

    I have never been interested in anything by Sigma but these are nice. I just did a “No Fuss Blush” post on my blog and these would definitely fit!

  4. I love Sigma brushes, but their make-up is unexplored territory for me :-) These blushes do seem to emphasize pores a bit though, but the colors definitely look nice.

    Mellow is the color I usually tend to go for when I buy blushes. But not sheen, muted.

  8. Katie R says:

    Wow, I have fair skin and these would probably go PERFECT. Except for maybe Peaceful. Shimmery blush doesn’t seem to suit me well…
