Each of these brushes can be purchased individually or in sets, at Sigma Beauty.
I was going to do all the brushes in one post, but I think it's a bit too long so I'm splitting it into two. This is for the FACE BRUSHES.
F30 Large Powder BrushAfter applying foundation, I dust loose powder over my face with this brush. It's denser than my old Sephora powder brush and does the job well! It feels lovely and soft on my skin. There's a slight bit of shedding but not much! It takes foreeever to dry, but I expected that because it's so dense.
F40 Large Angled ContourI was reeeally looking forward to this brush, but I have to say I'm quite disappointed with it! It doesn't seem to pick up my blusher very well (Nars Orgasm) and barely transfers any to my cheeks at all. I have to go over my cheeks a gazillion times to see any colour. It's also very soft, so the contour shape doesn't hold well. Not my favourite. :(
F50 Duo FibreI was suuuper excited by this one and I think I still am! Sorry it's so grubby, this is obv after it's been used. I had never used a stippling brush before and had to look up how to use it (such a n00b! =p) but I have been trying it out and I really do like it! I will definitely keep using this to apply my foundation. The black, natural hair bristles are sturdy and don't move and the synthetic hair swirls around to blend but stays resistant whilst stippling, so I'm happy with the quality of this! I heard about some colour running when it's getting cleaned, but I never had that problem. One of my favourites!
F60 FoundationI'm not sure there was a huge need to include both F50 and F60 in this set as I would assume people would use one or the other? As I've chosen to use the duo fibre stippling brush over this synthetic foundation brush, I don't have a huge use for it. I've started to use it to apply my primer though and it's very sort and spreads the primer smoothly and evenly, so I'll probably continue to use it for that.
F70 ConcealerThe guide booklet says this is for under your eyes and blemishes, but I use Rimmel Hide the Blemish concealer which is a stick, so I just apply that straight to my under eye area! I am looking for a new concealer though, so I might get one which would work better with this brush so I can get more use out of it!
In conclusion, I do actually use all of my face brushes just now, but my favourite is definitely F50 and the one I'm most disappointed by is F40. Maybe I'm using it wrong? :( I'm still super excited to have these brushes though and I do feel that my base make up looks a lot more flawless now!
Oh and I quickly wanna show you my new toy - a Gorillapod Tripod!!
