Sigma Brushes!!!

I'm sooo sorry for not posting anything for such a long time. I feel horrible, but I was really sick (no swine flu, but a normal, still quite annoying, flu) and therefore not able to do anything..

But here I'm again aaaand: WHHOOOTT WHOOOOT almost 10 subscribers!! Thanks sooo much!!!

I know, I know, stop talking and start reviewing:

I received my Sigma Brushes some weeks ago and I'm absolutely amazed!!! On their page they sell several kits and selected brushes individually. I ordered the "Sigma Make Up Professional Brushes Complete Kit" and two single Brushes. I even got a little 217 brush as gift for free. :-)

Some pics:

As you can see almost all of them look identical to the Mac ones. They even use the same numbers to describe the brushes, they just have Sigma and then SS in front of the numbers. The 239 has different hairs, but I can assure you it doesn't make any difference.

Let's look at it in detail:

SS190: This is the perfect foundation brush, the size is exactly right!

SS252: A quite multi-useable brush - it has a flat shape and is fine for different formulas, may it be loose eyeshadow or an eyeshadow base.

SS266: An angled liner brush which is perfect for making fine lines.

SS187: The famous duo-fibre brush, may be used for applying foundation, highlighters or blush. Love it!

SS168: The angled brush, who is your best friend when it comes to contouring.

SS275: Angled eyeshadow brush.

SS239: THE eyeshadow brush. This differs from the Mac one, other bristles and it's a bit larger, but as good as the Mac one!

SS209: A liner brush, which creates fine lines. I personally prefer angled liner brushes, but if you like the "typical" one, here it is.

SS219: This is perfect for applying shadow in the crease or on the lower lash line.

SS224: Another highly beloved brush: it is wonderful for applying highlight colours under your brows.

SS194: Concealer brush

SS150: Wonderful brush for powder products.

My individual brushes:

SS188: The smaller version of the 187 and as perfect as it's brother.

SS182: A kabuki brush, it is sooo great, exactly like the Mac one!

You see these brushes are simply awesome and soo much cheaper, it's ridiculous. The set I bought costs $69 and you can also buy it with a brush roll, which would be $89. The 182 costs at Mac about 50€ and the Sigma one only $19! Do I need to say more?

I doubt that I will ever buy Mac brushes again.. They don't have all Mac brushes, but the most important ones. So definetely check them out.

Here's the homepage:

I hope you enjoy this post!
