Sigma Brush Review and Free Shipping!

Hey Beauties!

I am finally doing the post about those Sigma brushes that I had wanted for so long!  I can now say how much I love them, I honestly use these brushes every time I do my makeup.  They are unbelievably soft, and make the experience of putting on your makeup feel just a little bit more luxurious =).  I bought the SigMax essentials kit (a synthetic, vegan brush kit) that came with 4 face brushes and 4 precision brushes.  You will see that all of the brushes seem to come in pairs, with a “momma” face brush and a “baby” precision brush.  Neat idea!  I think that the kit has now changed to contain 5 face brushes and 5 precision brushes, I’m sad that I missed out!

Here is an overview of what the kit contained when I bought it:

The Sigmax Kits

The 8 Face (F) and Precision (P) brushes in the Sigmax kit

P84 Precision Angled and F84 Angled Kabuki

F84 Angled Kabuki and P84 Precision Angled

The F84 is my all time favourite brush for liquid foundations!  The angle is perfect to get all around your nose and under your eyes, but the rounded top is perfect for buffing in for a flawless finish. I use the P84 for cream eyeshadow products to easily blend over the entire eye area as a base.

F82 Round Top Kabuki and P82 Precision Round

F82 Round Top Kabuki and P82 Precision Round

The F82 is my ideal brush for cream contour, as I find the stiffer, rounded shape fits perfectly into the hollows of my cheeks.  It is amazingly soft, but still dense enough to blend the product in flawlessly so there are no streaks or lines.  The P82 is the brush that I use for cream concealer around my face to cover blemishes or redness.  Use it in a dabbing motion to cover a blemish and blend away the edges without removing all of the product.

F80 Flat Top Kabuki and P80 Precision Flat

F80 Flat Top Kabuki and P80 Precision Flat

I use the F80 to buff in cream blush products to ensure just a nice flushed finish with no lines or streaks.  It is great for this, and won’t just blend all of the product right off of your face!  I use the P80 for precision highlighting and contouring in areas such as around my nose, the inner corner of my eye, or just a very small precise area on my cheekbones.

F86 Tapered Kabuki and P86 Precision Tapered

I use the F86 for my BB creams, cream foundations, cream highlighters, or to blend in large areas of concealer on my face.  It is a very versatile brush!  I use the P86 to blend the concealer under my eyes.  I find the pointed shape is perfect for getting right into the inner corner where I have purplish undertones up quite high, and also for getting right up to the bottom lashes without poking yourself in the eye =).

These are my favourite brushes to use now and you can get your hands on them here!

First Update: Sigma Brushes!

This is an old post from May 5, 2012: (I’ve updated the discount code to be current!)

Hey beauties!

So I have really exciting news… I just made my first Sigma purchase!  I know, I know I’m a little behind when it comes to these brushes, but it was a big investment decision.  I just had my birthday, so I decided to put some of the money I received towards purchasing the Sigmax Synthetic Essentials kit.  I CAN’T wait for these to arrive!!  The kit has 4 face brushes and 4 precision face brushes and costs $99.  I have been dreaming about a good foundation brush for a long time and think I might have finally found “the one”.

That’s every girl’s dream, isn’t it? =D

The precision brushes look really cool too.  They are designed to mimic your fingers, but to be a million times better, lol.   I hope one is great for blending out my cream highlighters.

I will let you know when they arrive and do a first impressions post, followed by a review once I use them!!
