Sigma Cor-De-Rosa Palette Review
Sigma Cor-De-Rosa Palette Review and Tutorials
In April 2020, Sigma released the stunning Cor-De-Rosa palette and I instantly had my eye on it. I waited a few months to actually buy it as I wasn’t sure if the colours were too similar to other palettes in my collection. But, it was definitely one that I couldn’t get out of my mind. There was definitely a sense of longing whenever I saw the palette on my Instagram feed.
Last month I decided to finally get it, along with the liquid lipstick and gloss within the Cor-De-Rosa collection, and today I’m going to be sharing my thoughts on it!

Sigma Cor-De-Rosa Palette Packaging
So, I own one other Sigma palette, the Enchanted palette, and just like with that one, the packaging for Cor-De-Rosa is incredibly pretty. The palette is peach coloured with ‘Cor-De-Rosa’ printed in white on the front and gold-lined roses all over. It is completely eye-catching and stunning and perfectly reflects the colour story.
Inside the palette has a magnetic closure and a decent sized mirror which is always a handy little feature as it makes it pretty easy to travel with. It has all the names of the shades written under each pan, something I personally love, and it includes a dual-ended brush. I’m always happy when a palette comes with a brush but with the Sigma palettes, it definitely feels like an extra little treat as their brushes are such good quality. There have been other palettes from other brands where the brush is uncomfortable to use as they feel quite spiky. But the Sigma brush is super soft and performs really well.
First impressions of the Sigma Cor-De-Rosa Palette
When I opened the palette I was definitely blown away by the shades. They are gorgeous! Honestly, the shimmer shades immediately caught my eye as well as Shakespeare which is the deep, pink matte. I couldn’t wait to try it out. When I swatched the shades I was thrilled by how pigmented they are!
The warm tones make this palette perfect for summer and late summer months. And, with a range of both bold and neutral colours, there’s plenty of room to really be creative. I think the shades also work for both casual daytime and glam nighttime looks.
I’ve created 3 different looks using only the Cor-De-Rosa palette so you can get an idea of the types of looks you can create.
For the first look, I used the shade Apricot as a transition colour, Shakespeare to darken and add depth to the outer corners and then Sunsprite all over the lid. This look definitely gave me all the sunset vibes.
The second look I thought would actually be perfect for autumn. I used the shade Summer Song all over my lid. I then used Medallion and applied this over my lid and outer corners, blending it into Summer Song. To darken the outer corner even further and create a smoky effect I used the shade bare Root. Lastly, I applied Belle of the Ball over the lid.
For the third and final look, I got a little bit more creative. I used the shade Bare Root and applied this in my crease, I then used Summer Song to blend it out and Apricot to soften the edges. Next, I cut the crease and then created a wing shape with Bare Root and filled in the outer corner. For the centre of the lid, I used Dark Night and then Belle of the Ball for the inner corner. In the gap between the wing and cut crease, I applied Sunsprite.
Final Thoughts on the Sigma Cor-De-Rosa Palette
Overall I’m so happy with this palette. I think it’s so beautiful and well worth the price. All of the shades really complement each other perfectly, no matter which colours you choose to use, you can’t go wrong. They blend really easily together, they’re super pigmented and easy to use and I didn’t have to deal with any fallout either.
Whenever I apply one of the shimmer/metallic shades I have to take a moment to really appreciate it haha. They feel very buttery to apply, reflect the light beautifully and are super dazzling. I just can’t stress enough how much I love the shimmer shades. They really are complete perfection.
The matte shades are fantastically pigmented too and need very little work when it comes to blending and building. They feel very smooth, they aren’t overly powdery and they tie a look together perfectly.
To be honest, Sigma are very quickly becoming one of my favourite brands for eyeshadow. Each palette seems to just blow me away, I’m so impressed with the quality of them. They’ve recently released Untamed, a new autumnal themed palette which looks beyond beautiful. I find that I get very excited with every one of their palette releases, which is quite rare in today’s world where there’s a new palette every 5 minutes. There’s just something so unique about them that I just can’t get them out of my head.
I hope you all enjoyed this post! Let me know in the comments if you own this palette or want to add it to your collection. While you’re here don’t forget to subscribe to Beauty and the Bookshelves. You can also follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest too. Thanks for reading!
