Sigma Brushes!

Hello! So I'm sure everyone has heard about Sigma Makeup and how great their brushes are. I have seen tons of reviews on them from various guru's on youtube... and was always interested but hesitant to buy them. Well I decided I finally wanted to see for myself the quality of the brushes.

I received my package in the mail today, like their site says, it only takes approx. 2-3 days to ship. I have to say at first glance, I really am impressed! The full brush kit, which I bought is $69 dollars ($89 if you want brush roll) and comes with 12 brushes. When I ordered mine they had a deal where you get a free makeup bag and blending brush.

They are incredibly soft, and I love the long wooden handles. Some are natural hair bristles while others are synthetic. They have been compared to MAC, and everyone knows how expensive MAC brushes are. The only MAC brushes I own are their holiday kit for applying eye makeup; wasn't impressed with their holiday eye brushes. I'd rather have my 50 bucks back that I paid for them, the blending brush that came with it is hard and scratchy. However, I have used the MAC 217 and the MAC 187 and liked them.

The free blending brush (SS 217) I received with my kit is very similar to the MAC 217 blending brush. Just as soft, white, tapered.

Kit includes: SS 150 Large Powder brush, SS190 Foundation brush, SS 187 Duo Fiber Brush, SS 168 Large angled contour brush (inst really that large though), SS 194 Concealer brush, SS 275 Medium Angled Shadow Brush, SS266 Small Angle Brush, SS252 Large Shader Brush, SS 219 Pencil Brush, SS224 Tapered blending brush, SS209 Eyeliner brush, SS 239 Eye Shading brush.

Hope this helped anyone who may have been hesitant or unsure about purchasing these brushes... etc. I think its a great deal for your money. (disclaimer:purchased with own money)

Have a beautiful weekend! <3
