Best of Sigma Brush Set $92.00
It's truly impressive how quickly Sigma became a big brand. Though it's been only 7 years since its debut, Sigma is now one of the most well-known brush brands in the world. Their brushes are amazing quality for the price, and another good thing about it is that they ship internationally. Recently they changed the shipping rate and now you can get the products delivered to your front door for free when you purchase $30 if you live in the states, and $75 if you live elsewhere. And you know what, it's easy to spend $75 on their website simply because they have tons of amazing stuff.
I was lucky enough to get Best of Sigma Brush Set as a PR sample, and I instantly fell in love with the brushes once I've tried them. There is absolutely nothing negative to say about them and now my makeup does not complete without them!
F80 Flat Kabuki Brush
This is one of the best selling brushes of the brand. I had heard so many good things about it in the past, and now I understand why it's so popular. I used to use Buffing Brush from Real Techniques to blend my foundation, but I wasn't fully satisfied with its performance because sometimes it would make my foundation look streaky.
This brush takes the foundation application to the next level. Foundation never looks cakey or streaky when applied with this brush, because it's so dense that there is almost no gaps between the hairs. It blurs my pores which makes my skin looks absolutely flawless. It's been 2 months since I got this brush and I have't used any other brushes to apply my foundation. I am so addicted to it.
F64 Soft Blend Concealer Brush
I LOVE this brush for blending my concealer around my nose and under my eyebrows. I don't know what it does, but it blends concealers seamlessly. I even feel like it increases the coverage of the concealer, and helps it to stay put. In my opinion it works better with a solid concealer rather than a liquid one.
P88 Precision Flat Angled Brush
So what works better with a liquid concealer? Precision Flat Angled Brush does! With soft hair, this brush does not irritate the sensitive skin around the eyes at all and blends an under eye concealer flawlessly. I use this brush to apply Colour Corrector from Bobbi Brown, to get the most coverage out of it, and add Za Concealer -which is my absolute favourite and I'm gutted it's discontinued- on top and blend with this brush again. It makes the concealer look a little streaky sometimes, but it works fine most of the time.
E57 Firm Shader Brush
This brush is perfect for packing eyeshadow on the centre of the lid. It brings out the intensity of the eyeshadow especially metallic or glittery one. I love using this brush to smudge eyeshadow under the eyes too.
E38 Diffused Crease Brush
Another favourite brush of mine! I'm using it as a blending brush rather than a crease brush, because it blends ANY eyeshadows seamlessly. There are some eyeshadows that I always struggle to blend that goes on patchy. Usually it takes a couple of minutes to blend them completely, which is pain in the butt in the busy morning. With this brush, it takes less than 30 seconds to blend. Why? I have no idea, but it works.
E34 Domed Utility Brush
This could be my least favourite out of seven brushes in the set -doesn't mean it's bad, it just means I am not a makeup artist and don't try new techniques every day. My daily makeup routine doesn't require this brush, but if you want to do the cut crease look, it might be handy to have this in your brush collection.
E21 Smudge Brush
I used to use a tiny brush from ADDICTION to apply eyeshadow under the eyes or smudge eyeliner with, but this brush made me realise that the ADDICTION one was actually too small for my liking. This brush applies the right amount of the eyeshadow and makes it much easier and quicker to smudge. I sometimes use it to clean the edges of my lips too.
Seven brushes including Flat Kabuki Brush for $92.00 is actually pretty affordable in my opinion. I definitely think this set is worth the price, and is a perfect set for a beginner. My favourite is definitely Flat Kabuki Brush, but I also love Diffused Crease Brush too. Since I got their brushes, makeup process became easier and more enjoyable for sure. I highly recommend this set if you are new to Sigma, or makeup!
