SIGMA BRUSHES + A LITTLE GIVEAWAY [CLOSED]

23-06-11

I know this a little overdue as I promised this a while back, but its here now so apologies for the wait! Some of you may have know that I have recently become a Sigma affiliate. I wanted to do this because I love beauty, and those of you who used to watch my Youtube channel will be well aware of that! Anyhow, the lovely people at Sigma were kind enough to send me one of their new travel size Kabuki’s from the Hollywood Glamour collection. I was sent the purple Miss Taylor retractable kabuki, which is a flat top brush suitable for all sorts of products from liquid foundations to powders.

I tried this out for a few days and can safely say I fell in love with it! I use it for my liquid foundation and buff it into the face. It gives a lovely finish and is the perfect size to use on the go. I was so impressed in fact, that I went ahead and bought the whole Complete Kit of brushes!

Left to right, we have:

– F30 Large Powder Brush

– F40 Large Angled Contour Brush

– F50 Duo Fibre Brush

– F60 Foundation Brush

– F70 Concealer Brush

– E70 Medium Angled Shading Brush

– E65 Small Angle Brush

– E60 Large Shader Brush

– E55 Eye Shading Brush

– E40 Tapered Blending Brush

– E30 Pencil Brush

– E05 Eyeliner Brush

The brushes vary in bristles. Some are synthetic and others are natural, but all are incredibly soft and versatile. (If you’re vegan and only want to use synthetic brushes, the site has a useful ‘Vegan‘ section so you can easily track down the brushes you need.)

My favourites have to be the F40 Large Angled Contour brush and the F60 Foundation brush. They are both really easy to use and I love the finish that they give. I’ve been washing these all with my Estee Lauder brush cleaner, and they have been washing really nicely too.

As you can see you get a massive range of brushes in the Complete Kit. This costs $79.00, which works out at around £50.00, so it’s great value for money when compared with similar brushes such as MAC. I’ve got a few MAC brushes myself and I don’t see any difference in quality. They are just as good, if not better than the MAC ones I own.

The only thing I will say, is with a couple of brushes, in particular the F50 Duo Fibre brush, I did experience a little shedding. However, it was only a little and not enough to put me off buying more of the range. I’ve already got my eye on the Synthetic Face Kit and the Small Contour brush to add to my collection. I can safely say I am a Sigma convert and will be using these brushes for a long, long time.

Now on to the good stuff! Sigma have very kindly offered to give away one of the Miss Taylor Kabukis to one lucky reader. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is:

– Be a follower via GFC or Bloglovin’

– Tell me which Sigma brush you would most like to own.

– Leave a contact email address.

There will be no extra entries for tweeting etc, but if you would like to spread the word, please do!

The competition will be open for one week, and will close on Thursday 30th June at midnight UK time. The winner will be chosen using a random number generator, and announced the following day.

Good luck!

  1. great little giveaway! i never really use brushes to apply my make up and i should start, it always gives off a more flawless appearance as it sits on the skin rather than being rubbed into it. so, i quite like the concealer brush.
    thanks, claire!!

  2. Hello, thanks so much for the giveaway! I'm a follower on GFC under the name 'Faye'. I would love to own this type of duo-fibre brush like the Sigma F50 because at the moment I just apply my foundation using my fingers and it doesn't give me a very good finish. 🙂
