| Eye Shadow Palette in Warm Neutrals |
I am an eye shadow junkie, especially a neutral eye shadow junkie, so it is no surprise that this has to be my favourite part of the Enlight Collection. The palette contains 12 pigmented, neutral eye shadows. The only eye shadow that isn't new in this palette is Fawn, which is available individually for $11. The palette is well designed, with a mirror on the inside, the colours listed on the back, and a magnetic closure to seal the palette. It is very sleek, compact, and perfect for travel. The colours are all very complimentary and have a range of different finishes (from shimmer to matte). I especially enjoy how there are two matte brown shades which you can use as transition colours in the crease. Many palettes on the market do not have enough matte shades, especially transitional matte brown shades, which enable you to solely use the palette, and no extra shadows.

| Eye Shadow Brushes |
Sigma is mainly known for their eye shadow brushes because of their quality and affordability. The Enlight Collection contains three great brushes to help create a variety of looks. My only complaint would be that they should have included a blending brush in this set to make it more complete. The brushes are exactly what I have come to expect from Sigma. They are phenomenal quality and a great price. I had a couple sets of Sigma Brushes from when they first came out and I found the ferule would come off on some of the brushes, but that problem has since been fixed and the ferules are now patent pending because they are extremely secure.
| Eye Shadow Bases |
The Enlight Collection comes with three eye shadow bases: Awake, Composed, and Neutralize. These are all new shades to the Sigma line and retail for $13 individually. I have never used a Sigma Eye Shadow Base prior to this collection, but heard that these are comparable to MAC Paint Pots. These have a similar concept to MAC Paint Pots, but the consistency is MUCH creamier. I like that these bases come with a little white lid to secure the product, in addition to the lid, so that these don't dry out as quickly in comparison to the MAC Paint Pots. Sigma Bases contain 0.17 oz. / 5 g of product.

| Blushes |
Keeping along the trend of threes, the Enlight Collection also contains three blushes: Peaceful, Serene, and Mellow. These are all new shades from the Sigma line and retail for $12 individually. I have also never used a Sigma blush before so I was quite surprised at how pigmented these were. Peaceful is more of a highlight, shimmer shade, but the other two make great blushes and would be universally flattering. As mentioned previously, these are VERY pigmented, so you only need a very light hand, especially if you have fair skin.

| Eye Liners |
The eye liners in this kit include: Nutmeg, Vintage, and Eclipse. They are very creamy and pigmented. I especially love how black the shade Eclipse is. These are the perfect eye liners to have in a neutral kit. You get one shimmery brown, a matte brown and a matte black. I expect to get a lot of use out of these. They glide on very smoothly without tugging at the delicate eye area. Each pencil retails for $9 individual and contains 0.05 oz / 1.4 g of product.

| Lip Glosses |
The Enlight Collection contains three neutral lip glosses: Hint, Tint, and Tranquil. Each lip gloss retails for $10 individually. As soon as I opened the kit I was instantly drawn to Hint, which is the nude pink shade. The formula is great, smooth and pigmented. The colour you see in the tube is the colour that transfers to your lips. One swipe and the formula is very sheer, making your own lip colour peek through, but upon layering, you can build up the opacity to what you see in the tube. I love this kit for these lip glosses alone and have been reaching for them daily, especially Hint (picture below).

All-in-all, these is a great collection, well worth the $165 retail price in my opinion. You really get what you pay for with Sigma Beauty products. Remember, this collection launches December 9th, TODAY, and from all the reviews I have seen, I anticipate this being quite a popular collection this Holiday season!
