Hello I’m writing a review of a brush set which I really hesitated to buy for a long time. The price tag always stopped me from purchasing it immediately. Sigma is an american brand and you can order their products from the official site. https://www.sigmabeauty.com
I got my set the next day after ordering and when I got it, I was utterly happy!
So, let’s have a look at it!
The set comprises of 5 brushes:
F80 Flat Kabuki
E40 Tapered Blending
F35 Tapered Highlighter
The name of this says it all – The Most Wanted Brush Set is a capsule collection of five of Sigma’s top-selling brushes. Comprising of brushes for blending foundation and shadow, applying liner and highlighter, this makes a perfect starter kit for brush newbies or a fabulous introduction to the Sigma range. With a huge following among professionals and regular beauty fans alike, their quality is second to none – thanks to the innovative shapes and textures, ergonomic handles and the fluffiest bristles you will have ever encountered.
If you’re after a comprehensive brush kit, or just some vital new additions to your current collection, Sigma’s gorgeous brush set brings together five fan favourites from this beloved range, all boasting the exclusive Sigmax and SigmaTech Fibres designed to outperform natural animal bristles. For applying and blending base make up, there’s the Flat Kabuki Brush (F80), while the Tapered Highlighter Brush (F35) easily dispenses highlighter pigment across areas like the cheeks and brow-bone. And for immaculately diffused shadow, you have the Tapered Blending (E40) and Controlled Blending (E25) brushes, while the Pencil (E30) can be used for smudging pencil liner and highlighting the inner corners of the eye.
The brushes are really soft, that's why I wanted this set so much.
Let’s look closer at each brush and find out what they are for. I’ll list them from left to right.
The first is the best-selling brush by Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki brush. It’s perfect for liquid and creamy textured application. I love it! From the moment of purchase I’ve been using only this brush for my foundation application and really like the finish it gives and the small amount of product it needs. It feels as though the brush polishes my skin and any foundation, BB,CC or fluid takes no more than a minute to be applied. This brush literally does everything for you!
F35 Tapered Highlighter brush. It’s for precise highlighter or shimmer application on the brow bone, for example or to the bridge of the nose, Cupid’s bow or inner corners of the eyes.
To be frank I usually use it to apply a base eyeshadow on my entire eyelid. It’s very soft. But not that soft when the brush has a few bristles. This one is very gentle and flexible.
E40 Tapered Blending brush. It’s tapered which is perfect for mixing and blending the colors. It also does the job quickly and I like to contour my nose with it. It isn’t big though it isn’t small either. Just ideal for the natural shadow effect on my cheekbones.
E25 Blending brush. This one will be nice for blending and mixing dry or creamy textures. It wonderfully applies base colors, as well as blends out the edges. This brush takes all the pigments well and translates them to the lids ideally. It’s super easy to work with, especially when it comes to blending.
E30 Pencil. It’s for eyeshadow application to the crease and lower and upper lashlines. I also like to highlight corners of my eyes with it.
Great babe for precise and neat work.
This is the set that I have on my beauty table. I use these brushes everyday. I wash them with a shampoo or face foam and leave to dry out on a window sill. Never place your brushes back into the glass where you keep them “top up” after washing. The water from bristles will destroy the glued basement and you’ll end up with your brushes shedding.
F80 Kabuki takes longer to dry out. Since it’s a foundation brush, I used to wash it after each use and dry out on a radiator. Well, the consequences of such drying were fatal. All in all I had to buy another Kabuki brush.
So now I treat my set very carefully.
And be ready that the foundation brush will take 2 days to dry out while for the others 1 day will be enough. And I also want to add that with this brush set you will forget about pressing your brush too tightly to get a color payoff and scratching your skin. Nothing of that kind. These brushes remain fluffy and soft even after the 20th wash and don’t lose their appearance and performance qualities.
I recommend this brush set. It’s worth the money. I think I spent way more trying to find “like brushes” among the street brands. If you want to have “expensive and good” brushes, then stop buying every brush you see. Just buy this set and that’s all.
Beware of fakes! And have a good day!
