|As you can see, you get a two cup system! Store your eye brushes in one, and face brushes in the other|
This brush kit was my first purchase from sigmabeauty.com. I am normally someone who prefers to buy anything, especially makeup in stores. Now, because sigma brushes are only available online, and have been raved about by my favorite beauty bloggers and youtubers, I have been holding off, but I finally gave in and bought it. Because of the fact that I already have multiple brushes from MAC and other brands, I didn't want to spend $109 dollars on the full 12 piece set as I already have half of the brushes in my collection that are just as good. So what did I do? I decided to go for the travel edition. I was debating on what color to get as sigma has a great selection. Blue, Pink, purple, black and more with the cities collection. I couldn't decide! However, as I was looking at the travel kits, I saw a travel kit that had baby blue handles and a pink ferral. BINGO! It was as if I had seen the love of my life!! Now, let's get onto the actual review!!!
All these brushes are synthetic and have the sigmax fibers. These are the softest brushes in the entire world, as synthetic brushes tend to be softer, also they hold there shape better when deep cleaning.
The packaging of this product is so darn cute! It comes in a two cup system that is baby blue. The case is very durable, yet practial because its not too big. There are two buttons on the side that will lock it up, insuring that the brushes can't and won't get out. But be sure, that when locking up the case, to make sure that no brush hairs get stuck inside. What I like to do with the brushes, once locked in the case, is turn it upside down and then back, this will ensure no bristles are stuck in the lock.
The Brushes Itself:
In the entire kit, you get seven brushes, which is alot considering the varity they gave you. Every brush comes in a baby blue handle, which is shorter then the originals (so i'm told) and a pink ferral which is darling.
|From left to right: F60, F30, F40|
You will also be recieveing F40 large angled contour brush, I enjoy using this as a blush brush for it will apply more concentrated color then the F30. Now, don't get me wrong, you can also use this for bronzer, it fits perfectly in the hollos of the face, and like I said with the F30, its blends incredibly well.
The last face brush you get is the F60 foundation brush. This may look like your standard, run of the mill foundation brush, however, the sigmax fibers really kick in, giving you the blendablity you need, as well as distributing the foundation evenly.
The E65 which is the small angled brush has many purposes other then eyeliner (which by the way, does amazingly!). Because this brush it not super dense, so it gives more oppertunities for other uses. I've been in love using this brush as a detail brush for the inner corner to highlight it.
The other brush you get is the E40 tapered blending brush. This is soft and dense with a rounded finish. You can use this in many areas of the eyes, like the brow bown to highlight, in the crease to blend shadow, or you can use it to set your under eye concelaer, as its so easy to apply under the eye.
The last eye brush in this kit is E30 pencil brush. This is great to blend your eyeliner if you perfer more of a smokey look. You can also do an outer v in the crease to give you the look anyone wants!
As I told you at the begining of this post, there are quite a few brushes in this kit, and if you are a beginner, this is all you need for a full face.
What is it?: A selection of seven brushes; three face brushes and four eye brushes
