Sigma Synthetic Kabuki Kit
I purchased this kit last year in December after having heard so much about the sigma makeup brushes, along with the essential kit which I'll do a separate review on. I'd been looking for a good foundation brush for a while and as MAC makeup brushes were a bit out of my price range I decided to go with sigma. After looking at their website I decided on the kabuki kit. There are four different brushes in this set, the F80 flat kabuki, the F82 round top kabuki, the F84 angled top kabuki and the F86 tapered kabuki. The first thing I noticed when I purchased them was how soft they were, I think I spent about 30 minutes just feeling them. All four are incredibly dense and I haven't experienced any shedding or fall out in the 3 months I've been using them. I first started using the F82 to apply my foundation and saw that a lot of people preferred the F80 which I've now switched to, although I think they are interchangeable and both work great. Using these I've noticed I use a lot less product and they apply my foundation really smoothly. The F84 I use mostly to contour and/or highlight and sometimes will use to apply my blusher. The F86 is probably the one I use least, but when I do I find it good for highlighting. Overall I think these brushes are amazing and is money well spent. These brushes are also vegan for anyone who is interested which I think is great considering how soft they are! The Sigma synthetic kabuki kit retails for $56 on their website www.sigmabeauty.com and they ship internationally.
What are you favourite face brushes? Have you ever purchased from Sigma before? Have you tried any of these brushes?
