Sigma Make Up Brushes

Monday, 17 June 2013






Hi Girls! I recently received some Sigma make up brushes from a company called Ball Beauty, so I thought I'd let you know my thoughts, although I'm aware that a lot of bloggers own Sigma make up brushes...so this post is for those of you who don't own any or don't own these two in particular!  

Ball Beauty are a 60 year old business which serves the Hollywood glamour industry and many secret celebrities, so imagine my excitement that they wanted to work with me! They let me know that as the products would be shipped internationally, it would take between 10 and 20 days to arrive but I was pleasantly surprised when I received the parcel only 4 days after they had told me they shipped it. 

Anyway, onto the brushes. I had heard a lot about Sigma but I'd never tried them myself as I've only recently started to take an interest in getting myself better make up brushes. I was sent the F88 Flat Angled Kabuki* and the E35 Tapered Blending brush*. 

F88 Flat Angled Kabuki - This brush is great for blending in my bronzer and contouring my face as the brush is quite dense so its really good for making sure that your bronzer is properly blended in with no really dark lines all around your face. When I'm using bronzer to contour my face I'm always so paranoid about it not being blended in properly because I don't want people to know that my check bones (or lack of them) don't look like that naturally. This brush is also really soft and so much better than the blusher brush I've been using so far to bronze and contour my face! I also love how chunky the handle is on this brush, the handle is the perfect weight to be able to really work the bronzer into your cheek bones without having to press too hard on your brush and it feels really comfortable to hold in your hand while applying your make up. 

E35 Tapered Blending brush - I've been meaning to get my hands on a decent blending brush for ages! The one I'm currently using is so scratchy that it's actually painful to use and doesn't really blend out my eye shadow at all. Since becoming a beauty blogger I've realized that I don't just have to plaster one colour onto my eyelids, and that using a crease colour can really add some depth to your eyes. This brush is so great for using in your crease, it fits perfectly and is really easy to use as a blending brush because it's so soft. I think using a good brush on your eye area is so important as its such a delicate area so I'm so glad I've been able to add this to my collection. 

You can buy Sigma make up brushes, and loads of other great beauty brands from Ball Beauty Suppy if you click here.

Which make up brushes do you love? I can't wait to get my hands on a decent angled brow brush!
