Sigma is one of my favourite brush manufacturers; every brush is just spot on and does exactly what it is designed to do. Recently I've added 3 new brushes to my collection, and today I wanted to share my thoughts on these brushes.
|Sigma Kabuki F86|
Firstly, my favourite brush of the three - the Sigma tapered Kabuki F86. This brush is perfect for highlighting and for setting the under-eye concealer. It's very soft, but at the same time firm enough for a precise application. Some people use it for contouring too, but I prefer my NARS Ita brush for this purpose.
|Sigma 3DHD Kabuki|
Next up is the Sigma 3DHD Kabuki brush, which lots of bloggers and makeup artists raved about. I like my brushes to have black handles as it looks more professional, but unfortunately, when I was ready to purchase this brush, the black ones were literally sold out everywhere, so I had to go for the white *sad face*. Anyway, the handle doesn't change the performance! According to Sigma, the 3DHD Kabuki brush was designed for all areas of the face to apply various products such as powders, creams and liquids. Personally I prefer to use each brush for a particular purpose (which means that I have a LOT of brushes and my kit is enormous!). To me this brush looks like a foundation brush, and this is what I use it for. It took me a while to get used to the unique shape. The quality is as good as it gets with Sigma. However, I find it difficult to use it for blending my under-eye concealer, for example, where a small, finer brush would be more precise. Would I buy it again? Probably not. I still prefer my Sigma F80 Kabuki much more.
|Sigma F35 Tapered Highlighter|
Lastly, I have the Sigma F35 Tapered Highlighter brush. For years I've used fan brush for highlighting, so I figured that it was time to try something different! I love this brush, it is small enough for a precise application of the highlighter, it creates a lovely diffused finish and the bristles are very soft. A must-have for every makeup lover!
What I love about all Sigma brushes is that they hardly ever shed bristles, it's very easy to wash them and they keep their shape perfectly once cleaned!
