Sigma Flat Top Kabuki

So I’ve wanted to try Sigma brushes ever since they first appeared on Youtube, probably over a year or so now but I just haven’t got round to ordering for some reason. Probably because shipping to the uk is a little bit pricey! So today I bring you the Sigma flat top synthetic kabuki – F80, which has made me want to place an order even more. I think I’m going to order an eye kit when I get back from holiday.
When I opened this the first thing I noticed was the quality, it really is amazing. I don't own any Mac brushes but from what I've seen/read/heard these are a good comparison. And for the price too, only $16 which is about £10! I also like that the writing on the handle is holographic, small details like this always make me happy! I don't know if the letters will rub off eventually though as I've only had it for a couple of weeks. The shape reminds me of E.L.F's powder brush, another one which is on my wishlist but don't currently own so can only comment on what I've read/heard/seen. Not sure how long the tip will stay white though!
I've only washed it once so far but the quality hasn't changed at all and it dried to the same shape and only shed a couple of hairs which I expected. It also came with a brush guard which is perfect if you're carrying it in your make-up bag.
I was expecting the brush to be a bit denser than it is though, I own one other kabuki brush from Bare Escentuals which I like for how dense it is but it isn't very soft on the skin. This kabuki is the total opposite though and is the softest brush I've ever used. It makes applying make-up more fun and less of a chore in the mornings.
I’d really recommend giving the Sigma brushes a try, they’re great quality for the price and there’s so many to choose from!
Now I have a little giveaway for you – Sigma have kindly given me one of these brushes to give away to my readers! All you have to do is leave a comment and your email address and you’ll be entered. The giveaway will end 12pm next Friday and I’ll announce the winner later in the day. Good luck if you enter!

  6. I've been dying to try them for so long but I just haven't gotten around to get it. I do have the stippling brush from Sigma. It does a fantastic job with applying my foundation.

  9. I've been eyeing up Sigma brushes for ages but like you I'm not crazy about the shipping prices to the UK. It's the only thing stopping me from ordering!
