Hello everyone!! I've decided to post up a review of eyeshadow brushes that I got from Sigma. I purchased the Sigma Eyes kit 2 months ago and I've been using them everyday since then! The kit consists of 7 brushes and I have used them all.
From left to right: small angle, medium angled shading, large shader, pencil, tapered blending, eye shading, eyeliner
These are the descriptions of the brushes from the Sigma website.
Small Angle - E65 - Essential for the application of gel or cream eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line. This brush is also excellent for filling out the eyebrows. Synthetic bristles.
Medium Angled Shading - E70 - Angled, tapered, flat top. Ideal to apply highlight shades underneath the eyebrow and on the inner corners. It can also be used for a precise application of darker shades on the crease area. Natural bristles.
Large Shader - E60 - Flat shape is ideal for application of cream formulas and eye shadow primers. It also works great with loose eye shadows or pigments. Can be used to apply color all over the lid or precisely on the lash line. Natural bristles.
Pencil - E30 - Precise application of color on the crease, outer corner, and upper and lower lash line. Also ideal to smudge out pencil liner. Natural bristles.
Tapered Blending - E40 - Rounded and tapered top. Specially designed to apply and blend color on the crease. Natural bristles.
Eye Shading - E55 - Soft and dense with a rounded finish. Can be used to apply pressed or loose eye shadows and pigments. Ideal to build intense color on the eyelid. Natural bristles.
Eyeliner - E05 - An extra-fine tipped synthetic fiber brush that delivers a precise, firm, even stroke to line the eyes.
These brushes have been so useful to me ever since I got them. I've tried other brushes before, especially cheaper ones that I could get from drug stores or Walmart. I've never tried MAC brushes before but I've heard that these Sigma ones are comparable!
When I received these brushes, they were wrapped individually and put in a nice red drawstring pouch. There was also a very nice surprise! I got a free blending brush (E35) because my order was over a certain amount. I initially took a picture of my kit with my phone but I guess I deleted the picture. *face palm*
Since then, I've also ordered more brushes. I recently ordered the small tapered blending brush (E45) and also the flat top kabuki (F80). I also threw in a brush roll to hold my growing brush collection!
All in all I am very excited about my purchases. I will be back to review the other two brushes I've ordered!
