Posted on January 27, 2012

I’ve been meaning to buy some makeup brushes and was excited to find Sigma Makeup. They carry tons of brushes and the prices are affordable!~ Each brush I purchased were between $14-$16. With a hopeful heart I ordered 4 brushes with a 10% off discount code (0112XJML) : 2 kabuki brushes for foundation/blush and 2 smaller brushes for concealers/eye shadows.

When the brushes arrived, I was :) !  The bristles are made from a very soft “Sigmax synthetic filament” which does not absorb the cream or liquid product that you load onto the brush. This means you waste less product, and the brushes will last longer since the bristle shafts are not constantly collecting and absorbing cream and liquid products. Here are my general observations.

The 2 Kabuki brushes are:

  • Super soft and packed densely.
  • Tight bristles allows you to pick up a lot of product quickly and easily. Great control because it won’t ‘fan’ out.
  • No need to swirl or pack on the product as you normally would with a regular fluffy brush… you’ll end up with too much product on your face!

The 2 smaller Precision brushes are:

  • Amazing. They’re soft with just the perfect amount of stiffness.
  • These brushes are tightly packed like the Kabuki brushes and will pick up products well.
  • Won’t go ‘limp’ when you’re trying to work concealer or eye shadow into your skin. This gives you great control and also allows the ends of the bristles to do their job! I hate it when I feel like I’m applying concealer or shadow with the neck/base of the brush. Here’s what I mean…

Now, let’s take a close look at the 4 brushes I got and I hope this helps you decide on which brushes to get!~

Synthetic Tapered Kabuki – F86 ($16)

“The F86 Tapered Kabuki brush is ideal for using powders and highlighter under the eye and cheek area. The dense and precise tip in this brush enhances cheek highlighting and contouring for a flawless application. Synthetic Sigmax HD filament.”

  • BB Cream, foundation, and primer.

  • Even though it’s a big brush, it gets into every corner because of the tapered end.

  • Any cream or powder product.
  • Blush or powder for face.
  • Remember, this brush is densely packed so it will pick up a lot of product, so use your product sparingly.
