Sigma is a brand well known for their great quality brushes. But they've also branched out into makeup. I'm all about good quality, affordable brushes. And while Sigma do sit at the more on the higher end of affordable, their brushes are highly acclaimed and well known for their amazing quality and function. So today I thought I'd share my thoughts on some products I've been testing recently.
Sigma 3DHD Kabuku Brush *| £24
These are such a strange concept. The end of the brush is pointed, to make it easy to apply liquids, powders or creams to all areas of the face. The brush itself is really dense and bristles are tightly packed. But really soft at the same time. To be honest I found this difficult to work with. With full coverage foundation it was really difficult to apply it smoothly without any streaks. I found this does work better with lighter coverage foundations. This also remained its shape and didn't shed when washed.

Sigma Blending Brush Diffused Blending Brush E38* | £11.50
Sigma eye brushes are highly talked about in the Blogging community so I was so excited to give this a try. It's a medium sized, doomed shaped brush that fits perfectly into the crease. The bristles are so soft. Not scratchy at all. This brush is amazing! It makes light work of blending any eyeshadows. I was amazed at how easily this blends shadows out. It diffuses them perfectly but without taking away too much pigment from the shadows. This also passed the wash test and maintained its shape.
Sigma Sweeper brush Medium Sweeper E54* | £11
This brush is a tightly packed but wide brush. This makes it perfect for applying shadows to the lid. This is great for adding a wash of colour to the lids. It also works really well with cream products.
Sigma Warm Neutral Palette*| £31.50
I was so excited to try this palette, all the shades are right up my street. It contains 12 shadows that all have warm or neutral shades. I had a little play with this palette and all the shadows are really pigmented, super soft and easy to work with. They also last really well on me without creasing. My favourite shades are Cinnamon (a warm toned Brown), Balanced (a shimmery Champagne colour) and Cozy, which is similar to Cinnamon only slightly darker. Overall, a great little palette.
Sigma Power Stick* | £19
I'm so impressed with the packaging. It's really weighty and feels a lot more expensive than it is. The lid also has a magnetic closer. The shade In Spades is a nice Pink nude colour, it's perfect for everyday. It has a creamy finish, not too shiny. So it's super comfortable on the lips but doesn't slip or slide around.
Overall, I'm really impressed by Sigma. The blending brush and eye shadow palette are definitely my favourites. Leave me your Sigma recommendations below, I definitely want to try more brushes.
