My thoughts
Let’s talk about the palette first. The pigmentation and texture of the Smoke Screen palette is very similar to Warm Neutrals by Sigma. The matte shades are especially soft and blend-able. None of the shadows were chalky or difficult to work with however you might notice some fall out. On the whole, I am very happy with it. One thing that I would like to point out is that Sigma has improved its eye shadows incredibly. I think it’s safe to say that the quality is on a par with some of the best high-end eye shadows that I’ve tried to date.

The lip glosses from the collection are okay-ish. I love Eleven; it’s such a beautiful shade. The pigmentation is sheer and the formula is non-sticky. The shine isn’t long-lasting but that’s very much the case with almost all lip glosses out there.

I find the lip concealer quite interesting since I haven’t tried anything like it before. The texture is a cross between a lip balm and a creamy concealer. It covers my natural lip color and turns rather matte once it is set. It’s nice!

The eye liners from the collection are pretty average – didn’t catch anything outstanding. The colors are cool though. My only gripe with the pencils is that these aren’t totally smudge-proof. I have noticed that on a hot day, the color transfers on to the area slightly above the crease which looks bad. But yes, they’re creamy and pigmented so that makes them fun to use nonetheless.

I LOVE the blush that comes with the collection. Born To is a gorgeous color. On the website it is described as rose wine. It has tiny silver specks in it but that doesn’t make it very shimmery. I think it’s a universally flattering shade that will look good on any complexion. The texture is wonderful; soft and easy to blend. Love the pigmentation too. A big thumbs up from my side.

Overall, Born To Be Collection is worth checking out.
