All About Sigma Brushes | Are They Worth It?!

Sigma brushes have been publicised and talked about SO much in the media. Their middle of the range pricing and quirky designs have caught people’s attention – but are they worth the hype?

I have had the famous Sigma F80 Kabuki Brush for about 6 months now and I religiously use it every day. Its unusual shape has replaced the standard foundation brush for me because it works so beautifully on the skin. It blends the foundation evenly and effortlessly around the face without leaving those irritating streaks.


Standard foundation brush


For years I have repeatedly buying cheap “make-do” makeup brushes and I always seem to replace them. So, I invested in the Sigma Premium Kit ($217) It comes with 15 brushes for the face, eyes and lips including 4 of Sigmas best selling eye brushes and 2 of Sigmas best selling face brushes.



Included in the set are:

E10 – Small Eye Liner: Precise application of liner. Use with gel or liquid liners.

E15 – Flat Definer: Sharp and precise application. Press product along upper and lower lash lines to create an easy, thin liner. Works with gel, liquid or powder products.

E20 – Short Shader: Concentrated color application. Apply color onto small areas of the eye such as the outer eyelid. Also use to smudge the lower lash line.

E25 – Blending: Controlled blending. Blend colors together onto the lid with added control. Buff out harsh lines for a well blended effect.

E35 – Tapered Blending: Controlled application of crease color. Using just the tip of the brush to pick up color, apply directly onto the crease and sweep through. Effect is blended, but defined.

E45 – Small Tapered Blending: Precise color application onto the crease. Picking up color with just the tip of the brush, apply intense colors to the crease to add depth and dimension to the eye.

E50 – Large Fluff: Controlled highlighting. Apply highlighting shades onto the brow bone or upper cheekbone. Gives a soft and blended finish.

F10 – Powder/Blush: Precise placement of blush. Use for powder application.

F15 – Duo Fibre Powder/Blush: Soft blush application. Generates a diffused blush application. Works especially well with mineral product for a natural and delicate effect.

F20 – Large Powder: Controlled bronzer application. Bronzing of the cheekbones and temple area. Using the flat side gives definition and control.

F25 – Tapered Face: Exact product placement onto cheeks. Apply powder, blush or contour shades onto the cheeks and temples. Tapered shape gives exact placement of product.

F35 – Tapered Highlighter: Subtle highlighting. Apply highlighting shades onto the upper contours of the face. Diffused finish gives skin a natural glow.

F65 – Large Concealer: Conceal larger areas of the face or body. Works well with liquid or cream products.

F75 – Concealer: Precise product placement. Use around the lip area to conceal when wearing bold lip colors.

L05 – Lip: Precise application of color onto the lips. Use the firm edge to define and contour the lips.

The only brushes that this set doesn’t come with that I think that you also need in your collection are the F80 Flat Kabuki ($24), E65 Small Angle (below, left, $14) and the E40 Tapered Blending Brushes (Below, right, $16). These are some of Sigmas best sellers – hense why they aren’t in the kit.


The E65 Small Angle (which I got free with my purchase because I spent over $30) “creates a smooth and even application of product to create the perfect line for controlled winged liner”.

The E40 Tapered Blending Brush “provides a gentle application of colour to soften harsh lines or apply a transition colour to the crease”.

In my opinion, there are no flaws in the Sigma brushes; or rather, I haven’t found any flaws in them. They are compact, professional, amazing quality brushes that should cost more than what they currently retail at.
