My take on Sigma Beauty Eye Shadow Base Dare: Unveil :
Packaging: This eye shadow base comes with a round transparent glass pot packaging with a black crew on cap upon which brand name sigma beauty is imprinted, beneath the screw on cap there is a small plastic flip on protective lid. I really liked the protective lid, as it would prevent drying of eye shadow base. The glass pot is slightly bulky to my liking. Complete list of ingredients is mentioned on the carton provided with it.
Shade & Pigmentation: Unveil is a pretty classic gold shade that would suit almost all skin types. Its moderately pigmented, though its sheer, color is still buildable.
Texture & Finish: The texture of the eye shadow base is neither too creamy nor too hard, it comes with metallic finish with fine shimmers embedded in it. It blends easily without looking patchy. Eye shadows blend easily over it too. However, more quantity should not layered over, it will give stretchy uncomfortable feeling to eyes. However with time, this base dries up, I noticed it started drying up after 6 months or so.
Staying Power: It enhances the wear time of eye shadows by couple of hours. It can also be used alone for just wash of color, it stays for 3-4 hours with minimal creasing.

My Overall Recommendation: Sigma Eye shadow base dare- unveil is a classic gold shade with shimmer finish. It has soft texture and though formula is sheer it is buildable. It blends nicely without looking patchy and feels lightweight on my eye lids. It enhances wear time and intensity of shadows worn over it. However, with time the formula dries up which deters the quality of the product.
p.s– These eye shadow base reminds me of Maybelline eye tattoos which are soft initially but dries up when left unused for long time.
