Glam Morena: Review/Giveaway: Sigma Synthetic Face Kit.

Review/Giveaway: Sigma Synthetic Face Kit.

I've been using the Sigma Synthetic Face Kit for the past two months, so I'm finally getting around to reviewing the kit. The Sigma Synthetic Face Kit includes three brushes: Flat Top Kabuki, Round Top Kabuki, and Angled Top Kabuki. Don't forget to scroll below for a Sigma Giveaway for this kit as well!

Description: The Synthetic Face Kit contains three face brushes for high definition, flawless makeup application. The brushes in this collection feature exclusive Synthetic filament, specially designed to apply powder and liquid products without absorption into the fibers. The shape, density and height of the filaments were carefully engineered to perfectly buff products onto the skin, resulting in a high definition effect.

Retail Price: $42.00  - Use code GLOW2011 for 10% off and that brings to the kit to $37.80!

Sigma F80 - Flat Top Kabuki: The F80 Flat Top Kabuki brush is perfect for applying and blending liquid, cream, and powder products onto the skin. The flat surface allows perfect buffing with flawless results. Features synthetic Sigmax HD fibers.

Overall Thoughts: I've used a flat top kabuki brush previously before and I found it perfect for applying liquid foundation. It gives the same "airbrush" effect to your foundation that a duo fiber brush gives. This time around I used this brush to apply my mineral foundation. The flat top shape makes this perfect for buffing in the loose powder for a flawless finish.

Sigma F84 - Angled Top Kabuki: The F84 Angled Top Kabuki brush is the perfect brush for precise, yet blended application of products on the cheeks. It seamlessly applies cream, powder and liquid products. Features synthetic Sigmax HD fibers.

Overall Thoughts: Angled brushes can be used for so many applications on the face! I mostly used this brush to apply my blush and for contouring. I also found that it's perfect for stippling and applying on cream products, especially cream blushes.

Sigma F82 - Round Top Kabuki: The F82 Round Top Kabuki brush simplifies precise makeup application under the eyes and around the nose. This brush is also perfect for achieving flawless coverage using liquid and powder products. Features synthetic Sigmax HD fibers.

Overall Thoughts: This is the brush I was most excited to use because I don't own anything like it. I tend to use this for blush application. The round shape made it easy to apply blush directly on the apples of your cheeks. This is also great for foundation applications. The rounded top makes it easier to get into smaller areas like the nose, under the eyes, and around the chin.

  • Super soft bristles
  • Full and dense bristles
  • Experienced no shedding
  • Each brush is a "multi-tasker" brush
  • Kit is cheaper to buy than individually

  • CONS:
  • Brushes take longer to dry
  • Pricey for those on a budget

    My favorite brush at the moment is the Sonia Kashuk Flat Top Blending brush for my foundation. The problem with it is that it takes a while to blend in the foundation because the brush head is so small, so I would love to try out the Sigma F80 because it is bigger and looks like it would work really well!

    3. I think my favorite brush is my Essence of Beauty Retractable Kabuki Brush that I got from CVS. Since it's retractable, I can play with the spread of bristles and apply powder under my eyes (atop concealer) quite easily without having to use another (smaller) brush. If we aren't talking face application, I'll throw my Sephora eyeshadow blending brush into the running.
