Sigma Complete Kit: Review

Every makeup artist's dream, a full set of makeup brushes. This kit was the first thing I ever purchased from Sigma Makeup. All of the brushes are soft and made with amazing quality. Each brush has its own purpose, some more uses than others.

The kit is $79 without the brush roll (not including tax or S&H)
All of the brushes are available for individual purchase now but if you purchase the full kit as opposed to each brush individually you will save $53

Here is a description of  this kit:

12 professional quality brushes for a complete makeover! Everything you need to apply makeup to eyes and face.

Brushes in this kit:

Small Angle - E65 - Essential for the application of gel or cream eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line. This brush is also excellent for filling out the eyebrows. Synthetic bristles.

Medium Angled Shading - E70 - Angled, tapered, flat top. Ideal to apply highlight shades underneath the eyebrow and on the inner corners. It can also be used for a precise application of darker shades on the crease area. Natural bristles.

Large Shader - E60 - Flat shape is ideal for application of cream formulas and eye shadow primers. It also works great with loose eye shadows or pigments. Can be used to apply color all over the lid or precisely on the lash line. Natural bristles.

Pencil - E30 - Precise application of color on the crease, outer corner, and upper and lower lash line. Also ideal to smudge out pencil liner. Natural bristles.

Large Angled Contour - F40 - The angled shape makes this brush ideal to apply blush or contour shades. Natural bristles.

Large Powder - F30 - Very dense with a rounded top. Ideal to apply powder products on face and body. Natural bristles.

Duo Fibre - F50 - Specially designed to generate an ‘airbrushed’ finish when used to apply liquid foundation. It can also be used to apply blush, highlight shades and loose pigments. Blend of synthetic and natural bristles.

Foundation - F60 - Can be used to apply liquid or cream foundation. It is also recommended to apply moisturizers and conceal large areas. Synthetic bristles.

Concealer - F70 - The rounded, tapered, flat shape makes this brush ideal to conceal the under eye area. It is also recommended for a precise application in small areas. Synthetic bristles.

Tapered Blending - E40 - Rounded and tapered top. Specially designed to apply and blend color on the crease. Natural bristles.

Eye Shading - E55 - Soft and dense with a rounded finish. Can be used to apply pressed or loose eye shadows and pigments. Ideal to build intense color on the eyelid. Natural bristles.

Eyeliner - E05 - An extra-fine tipped synthetic fiber brush that delivers a precise, firm, even stroke to line the eyes.

Sigma Makeup offers a free travel size E25 brush with this kit!

This kit is perfect for anyone who is starting out in makeup or even a professional who wants the basics.
They are professional quality brushes at a fraction of the cost.
If you don't want to spring for the full kit they offer individual brushes or you can even just purchase the Face Kit (includes all the face brushes) for $45 (without tax or S&H) and then at a later date the Eyes Kit (includes all the eye brushes) for $45 (without tax or S&H)
