Sigma Brush Haul


Sigma Precision Kit

Sigma f50

When Sigma announced they were giving free shipping on all orders, I couldn’t resist getting in on the action.After doing a bit of research I settled on the Sigma Precision Kit and the F50.

I’ve never seen anything like the Precision Kit in the UK and retails for ($49.99 – GBP will depend on the current conversion rates) and it includes 4 synthetic duo fibre brushes; Sigma describes the brushes as;

P80 - Precision Flat The small, dense and flat top is ideal to conceal blemishes, sun spots and small imperfections on the skin. It can be used to stipple concealer on defined areas, followed by precise application of setting powder.

P82 - Precision Round The rounded top was designed to mimic your fingertips, making this brush ideal to apply eye shadow primers. It can also be used for the precise application of highlight shades on the bridge of the nose, cheek bones and cupid's bow.

P84 - Precision Angled The small angled top makes this brush perfect for precise contouring on the sides of the nose and contouring the hollows of the cheek bones. It can also be used to highlight the brow bone.

P86 - Precision Tapered The tapered shape of this brush is ideal for application of concealer under the eyes and on defined areas such as the sides of the nose, chin and around the mouth. This brush can also be used to perfectly apply concealer around the lips to prevent color bleeding.”

All the brushes are really soft, and dense (a lot denser than my MAC 187) and are perfect for blending concealer, primer or cream eyeshadows. I’ve tried them all out today, and loved the results. The P80 and P82 will be replacing my flat concealer brush (the P82 is perfect for blending concealer under the eyes, and gets in to the smallest areas brilliantly).

The F50 ($18.00) I will be using as a blush brush, I’ve not been happy with how my MAC 168 applies blush lately, and after a lot of reading decided a duo fibre would give me the sheer natural glow I was looking for. The F50 doesn’t disappoint, it gives a lovely wash of colour and allows you to slowly build up colour rather than have to try and blend out a too heavy application (looking like you Great Aunt Marge isn’t a hot look!)

I’m really happy with my brushes, and will definitely consider ordering from Sigma again, in fact I’ve already got my eye on the Synthetic Kabuki Kit….


  1. wow I've read so many good review may have to invest..

  2. They're really nice brushes, the quality is definitely equal (if not superior) to MAC, and they're about half the price! They also make a lot of MAC dupes

  3. I was so sad to miss out on the free delivery offer as I adore Sigma! I use the F80 daily and can't wait to get the F82 and a few others. These all sound great :) xxx
