Recently Sigma have re-vamped their website into a easlier to navigate site. Previously they sold a small variety of individual brushes and concentrated on their brush sets, however the new site offers buyers the opportunity to purchase individual brushes and create their own customised brush kit. they have also changed the names of their brushes!
This provides buyers the opportunity to try the brushes they want and need in their own kit. It also makes it easier for those who wants to try a few brushes at a time.
With this being said, I decided to give you my opinion on the small collection of Sigma brushes I own.
A quick overview of these brushes before I got into in each one individually, otherwise I'll repeat myself over and over :P All the Sigma brushes I own are really great quality and really soft. I haven't experienced any excessive sheading (just one or two when cleaning the brushes) with any of these brushes.
This brush is quite densely packed with makes the application of mineral foundation or powder go on evenly and creates a lovely flawless finish. I use this brush to apply my setting powder and it leaves the skin incredibly soft. It's also a great size, not too large nor too small.
F35 (previously SS165)- Tapered Highlight Brush
This brush is so cute! It's nice and small, perfect for highlighting on the apples of your cheeks. It's not as dense as it may seem, the tapered shape can go from tapered to flat depending on how much force you put on it. This gives you the control of using the brush on the small areas on your face (nose) or the larger areas (cheeks). My favourite highlighting brush :)
F25 (previously SS132)- Tapered Face Brush
This is the larger version to the F35, exactly the same by bigger and suitable for powder or blusher application. The F25 is slightly looser in density than the F35.
E50 (previously SS227)- Large Fluff Brush
Another cute brush. So soft! It's a densely packed brush for perfect precision. I use this to highlight my brow bone at the moment, but it can also be used to apply eyeshadow in one swipe :P or used to contour the corners of your nose. A lovely must have brush!
F80 (previously SS197)-Flat Top Synthetic Brush
I featured this brush previously on my blog. This was the first brush I purchased from Sigma and still totally love it. Perfect for a flawless look, it's such a dense brush which I used to buff in my foundation. Love the finish it gives, it blends the foundation into my skin so well. This brush is one I would definitely be re-purchasing.
I currently have my eye on the small contour brush (F05) ;)
Do you own any Sigma brushes? What do you think of this hype? :D
