Did you ever buy some expensive makeup only to be disappointed with the results? If it happened to you, it may not have been the make up which was to blame. It may have been the brushes you used.
Recently Sigma Makeup contacted me and asked if I was willing to review their makeup brushes. Willing? What fun I had!
I not only had a great time trying their brushes and falling in love all over again with my eye shadow, I developed an urge to shop for new makeup and experiment with new looks! Also, Sigma is letting me share the fun with you. Read this post to the end and learn how you can get a set of brushes from Sigma for FREE!
What made Sigma brushes special?
* They pick up the right amount of color and apply it exactly where (and how) I need it.
* They are soft and kind to the skin. My skin is sooo sensitive, but Sigma brushes treated me well. In the past, I had a couple bad experiences with brushes that were too tough and were not a pleasure to use. Sigma brushes were like butterfly kisses.
* Good brushes stay intact. Sigma brushes did well on shedding test, only the powder brush lost 2 bristles...
Sigma Makeup offers 2 sets of brushes: for eyes and face. First, I will review their set for face. Read the details on all the 5 brushes below.
What makes a great powder brush? Soft dense fluffy fibers combined with good powder pick-up ability! All of this applies to Sigma Powder Brush. SS150 applies powder evenly and makes it appear natural and almost invisible. The brush is big and feels nice in the hand. You can also use it to apply blush.
Love this brush! Even though the bristles are firm, the brush is extremely soft and mild to your skin! It has a tapered shape, is thick but flat and is perfect not only for all-over application but also to access and apply foundation on the narrow areas around nose, mouth and eyes. Applies and blends foundation (and concealer!) without streaks. You can build coverage up or blend out any lines with this brush easily.
Also referred to as a stippling brush. This brush features 2 length soft bristles and has a dual application. You can use it to apply liquid foundation or blush. I use it mainly for blush. SS187 Duo Fiber Brush picks up just the right amount of blush, distributes color evenly, buffs it in and diffuses the powder blush very nicely. The result looks very natural! I tried applying illuminating powder with it but, in my opinion, it is too fluffy for this.
This brush features angled shape and soft thick bristles. It is quite fluffy and due to this and porous goat fibers, it picks up color very well. You can use SS168 for contouring your face or to apply blush. This brush easily creates the right shadow in the right place and is great not only to apply but to blend and smooth out any seams.
This brush is flat, slightly tapered and has firm bristles which is great for precise application! Bristles are mild to the skin and do not scratch or tug. SS194 makes conceler glide smoothly and is great for under eyes application. Sigma Concealer Brush is also convenient for targeted coverage of certain skin imperfections (acne, scars) and expression lines.
I did a photo of me after testing Sigma brushes for face. Please, forgive me for not posting the "before photo". The difference is too striking :-(
Brushes in this set are mostly goat hair excluding SS190 and SS194 that are synthetic just as Foundation and Concealer brushes should be.
