I recently won a blog contest held by Claire and so I was sent the Sigma F80. This is my first Sigma brush so I was super excited to hear that I won.
The size of this brush is perfect for buffing in foundation. Here it is compared to the Sonia Kashuk flat top brush. I always felt that the SK brush was a little too small, but continued to use it because I loved the finish it would give me. Now I'm going to start using it for cream blushes and I think it will be perfect for that.
This Sigma brush has to be my all time favorite for applying foundation and I've tried a bunch, including the MAC 109 (shed too much, not dense enough), Essence of Beauty angled blush brush (absolutely love this one, but sheds a lot too), Regular flat foundation brush (too streaky and "old school" imo). I find that with this brush there is little to no waste of foundation. It's so dense that I can just pump the foundation right on to the brush, dot it on my face and then blend it in.
I love the plastic slip the brush came w/, it makes it perfect for travel and for drying. The brush is also very comfortable in the hand. Overall I'm so impressed with this Sigma brush. Even though I have more brushes than I know what to do with, it definitely makes me want to try some of the other brushes that Sigma has to offer.
What is your favorite Sigma brush?
