i have been using sigma brushes for almost a year. i bought them because of the hype they’re mac clones at fraction of price. though professional makeup artists would argue they’re not comparable. but for someone who’s on tight budget, being able to own a complete set of brushes at affordable price is the greatest attractraction.
i’ve been using sigma brushes most times since getting them almost a year ago. there are brushes i always reach out for, mostly the eye brushes that why i later bought the eyes kit. there are brushes that i rarely use.
so i thought i’ll share what i think is the best and the worst brushes from this company.
which one do you think i label as the best and the worst? if you use sigma brushes, what is your best and worst?
the powder brush ss150 (now F30).
what’s good about this brush? it’s soft. softer than my mac powder brush! it’s large and does a great job with loose powder application. i love the feel of bristles on my face.
why do i label it the worst? because it sheds like crazy!!
there was minor shedding initially and seems to settle down. this brush went into hibernation because i rarely powder my face during summer. when i used again, it sheds. it was major shedding! hair all over my face! i spent the rest of my limited makeup time to remove the hair from my face. i was not happy.
i thought, it was shedding because i’ve not touched it for a while. let me wash it and let it settle down.
the next time i used it again, it was hair all over my face again. another unhappy experience. 🙁
i tested by tapping the brush against the sink. i couldn’t believe my eyes. hairs kept falling out and all over the sink!
this is not normal. this does not happen to my other brushes.
i’ve not touched this brush ever since. i can’t afford spending times removing hair from my face and mess up my makeup.
i’m now without a good powder brush.
this brush carries the old numbering system. i don’t know if its successor with the new coding system has any improvement.
the blending brushes ss217 / E25. they were the free gifts from the 2 separate purchases.
i usually have no expectation with free gifts. i was surprised to find that the free gifts was the best out of all. i use them all the time! i don’t know what i’ll do without them!
they are perfect for blending or to apply eyeshadows as single wash of color.
note that these are travel-size brushes. thought they carry different codes, they are equally awesome.
i’m supposed to have 3 of these brushes. the 3rd one was for being an affiliate. but it’s misplaced. 🙁
