My Favorite Sigma Brushes!

It seems like just yesterday I ordered the Sigma Essential Kit.. I desperately wanted to expand my makeup brush collection into something more 'professional'. Today, I still have every single brush that I have ever bought from them, and in great condition. Sigma brushes are extremely durable, and have definitely helped me refine my makeup skills over time. 

I recently ordered doubles of my favorite Sigma brushes, and today I'm going to review them for you! I have never reviewed brushes before, so it's about time that I do! 

On the left is the packaging that the brushes came in. Each brush was individually wrapped. The small box was placed in tons of bubble wrap, inside a large cardboard box. I have never had a problem with Sigma's shipping, I feel that they do a great job of making sure the brushes arrive safely! 

Tapered Blending E35- $12: This is my favorite eye brush of all time. It's wonderful for blending shadow to achieve a seamless look. I prefer the tapered blending because of it's shape. I find that the length of the hairs makes blending in the crease easy. I also use these to create my brow highlight. The tapered blending is a must, must, must! 

Eye Shading E55- $10: This is the perfect brush to 'pack' or place shadow down on the lid with. The bristles are dense and soft. The brush is firm enough so that the shadow can be placed exactly where you want it, while the bristles don't feel hard or crunchy at all. I wish that I had 100 of these so that I wouldn't have to wash mine so often!

Large Angled Contour F40- $16.00: I love to use this to apply my blush. The bristles are very soft, and the angled shape helps me sculpt my face effortlessly. I don't contour much, but when I do I also reach for this brush. You could even use it to highlight, but I use a different brush for that. Anyway, I just love the angled shape for blush application, it's a life changer. No, really. 

What I do notice about new Sigma brushes, is that they get better after a few washes. I'm not saying they aren't soft as is, but I prefer the way they feel after a couple of uses. It's almost like a new pair of shoes, the more you use them the more comfortable they feel.

I really value the quality of the Sigma company as a whole. They ship worldwide, give coupon codes every month, provide great customer service, and good quality brushes at fair prices. Their site is easy to navigate, and they even give a free gift with every purchase! Another thing I really like about Sigma is that they support  many beauty bloggers/beauty gurus out there who use their products. They also hold giveaways, and host meet and greets with some of their top guru affiliates, which is actually an awesome idea! 

I had the pleasure of meeting the founder of Sigma at IMATS back in January, and she was so kind to me. All of the brushes that I wanted to buy where sold out, but she didn't want me to walk away empty-handed, so she gave me their free gift with purchase anyway. It's the little things, and great quality products that really impress me about a company. 

Sigma has been, and will continue to be my makeup brushes of choice! Have you tried Sigma brushes?

  1. Small typo on the post. You wrote "new pair of hoes" instead of "new pair of shoes". Something tells me the post wasn't wanting to mention a gardening tool. ;) Hahaha.

  2. I have wanted to try Sigma brushes for the longest time - they look amazing quality and aren't too expensive compared to MAC etc. Great Post.

    1. Yes, they are so wonderful. I've tried a few MAC brushes, and I always come back to my Sigma ones :)

  3. I love the tapered blending brush as well, it is so perfect for the crease and blending! I should get another as a spare...:)

    1. It's my favorite brush of all time, I could have endless spares and never be satisfied. Haha :)

  4. My favorite one is E25 for sure! I just made an order to get F80, E30 and E40 and I really want to try the F40 one! I use my E25 on a daily basis and it amazes me that every time I wash it, it comes out like new! Gets me wondering if I'll ever have to repurchase haha! Not complaining though!

    E55 looks really similar to the ELF eyeshadow brush for $1. Is there a chance you have that one and would you compare the two?

    Just found your blog and already loving it,

    1. I know exactly what elf brush you're talking about. When I first started wanting to really use makeup brushes, elf was my go-to. Within a few washes, all of my elf brushes shed and fell apart like crazy, and that's why I invested in Sigma. So, they may look similar, but trust me, the $10 Sigma brush will last you years!

  5. Ah! You are making me want to buy all three of them! Especially the blending brush! Who doesn't need a perfect blending brush :)

    Great post!
