Sigma Brushes Review!!

           Good day Sweeties! As a makeup guru , I need to invest on make-up tools to enhance my make-up application which are brushes! I have been looking for brushes that would satisfy my needs. I watch you tube videos everyday and I noticed that all of my favorite you tube makeup gurus use Sigma and MAC brushes. I was able to get the MAC ice parade duo fibre kit that which was a good buy. The kit i just mentioned were the first set of brushes I splurged on which made me happy. I tried to order Sigma Brushes online but i really think it would be a hassle to order, since i don't have credit cards plus I certainly don't want to use my debit cards for security purposes. I was in luck finding these Sigma Brushes on Facebook. YUNIQUE SHOP on  Facebook are selling them here in Cebu! :D  You wouldn't imagine how happy i was when i purchased them and  i was able to save on shipping fee. So i got the  SYNTHETIC KABUKI SET and THE FACE & EYES KIT. I got these babies earlier this month and decided to test them before posting them on my blog . Posted below are opinions and the list of brushes with their functions.

  1. Flat Kabuki ( F80) - Ideal for all over application of liquid and cream formulas in large and most flat area of the face , such as the forehead , temples, and cheeks. This brush is perfect to seamlessly buff foundation onto the skin. I always use this brush to apply my liquid foundation because it really makes my application a lot easier and the best part of it it is really really smooth ..Sometimes i use this to apply my powder blushes.
  2. Round Kabuki (F82)-  Perfect to comfortably apply liquid and cream foundation on curved areas of the face, specifically around the eyes and nose , on the chin and the jaw line. This brush can also be used for all over application of mineral foundation.
  3. Angled Kabuki (F84)-  The angled shape of this brush eases the application and blending of cream blushes onto the cheeks . It can also be used to apply and blend contour shades on the hair line, cheek bones, and jaw line.
  4. Tapered Kabuki (F86)- The tapered shape effortlessly applies products on defined and hard to reach areas of the face . This brush is perfect for all over application of powder, cream, and liquid formulas .It is also ideal for all over primer application, contouring and highlighting.

  1. Large Powder Brush (F30) - Very dense with a rounded top . Ideal to apply powder products on face and body. Natural bristles and very soft.
  2. Duo Fibre Brush (F50)-  Specially designed to generate an "airbrushed" finish when used to apply liquid foundation. It can also be used to apply blush , highlight shades, loose pigments . Blend of synthetic and natural bristles.
