SIGMA BRUSHES REVIEW
I receive a ton of questions about makeup brushes so I decided to review some of my favorite brands starting with my favorite: Sigma Brushes. The excellent quality and affordable pricing is a major plus for me. I have included my absolute favorite must-haves as well as the fairly new HD brushes.
This is my absolute must-have brush! Foundation applies flawlessly! If you are a makeup enthusiast, I absolutely recommend owning either the F80 or Beauty Blender ( I'll do another post about the beauty blender).
This brush completely surprised me. I played with it for a couple weeks waiting to find something I wouldn't like about it. This one is along the same lines as the F80 (mentioned above) except in that, because of the angle, it allows for the precision a regular kabuki brush doesn't allow. I used both cream and liquid foundations and it blended beautifully. I was able to blend my contour without any streaks. I also love that this brush is multipurpose. I was able to apply my highlight powder with precision as well. I am very impressed with this brush.
E55/E54 EYE SHADING BRUSH
These two bad boys (they are similar only one is pictured) are necessary to pack on the beautiful shadows you intend to place on the lid. They allow you to pack lid color in one or two applications rather than several attempts. Also, when made wet for a metallic foil color, they don't soak up all the product. Neither brush sheds (from my experience).
E39/25/40 BUFF AND BLENDING BRUSHES
Because if I was forced to choose only one brush to keep and the rest were taken from me, the blending brush would be it! If you own no other brush on the planet, you NEED a BLENDING BRUSH! *you don't need all three but one is a MUST
Again along the same lines of the 3DHD Kabuki but smaller. This brush makes my heart smile. I immediately think of roses and rainbows. It's everything I hoped it would be and so much more. Useful! Multipurpose! It immediately replaced a few brushes for me. This brush blends cream or liquid highlight beautifully. It also blends contour on my nose exactly the way I like: PRECISE. I am able to powder my highlighted areas, apply highlight throughout my face AND blend the in-between areas of my face. I can't say enough about this brush.
Please note: I love Sigma but it's not the only brand I use. Like I stated at the beginning, I'll be pinpointing my favorite brushes from my favorite brands in the next few entries. Purchase Sigma brushes here.
