Wedding Wednesday: The Engagement Party

Engagement Tea Party – Saturday 19th September 2015 Last Saturday we held our engagement party at our house, we spent the day with around ...


Jumping on the Bandwagon.

Sigma Brushes.

Synonymous with bloggers?

You'll definitely have seen a review of the brushes at some point, and everyone and their dog is an affiliate; well I've joined the masses...

A few months ago Sigma sent me their F80 Flat Top Kabuki brush to test out and review, I thought I'd give it a thorough test and so that is why it's taken me until now to let you know what I think. I love it. Some days I love it more than others but on the whole it's a great brush. I use it to apply liquid foundation mostly but I have been known to apply cream blushes with it, it's also great for buffing in concealer under the eyes and also on blemishes.

Sigma say:
This exclusive flat top synthetic kabuki was designed to deliver a flawless makeup application. The Sigma Makeup F80 is a buffer brush that can be used to blend powder or liquid products. The short and dense bristles make it easy to buff your liquid foundation. The long handle adds comfort to your makeup application. The synthetic fibers are ideal to be used with liquid products and can be easily cleaned. Made of Synthetic Sigmax HD filament.


  • The synthetic fibres used in the brush mean that your foundation doesn't  sink into your brush before you've applied it!
  • No shedding so far, I've washed it about 5-6 times.
  • Dense.
  • Good Size.
  • Creates a flawless coverage even with hard to work with foundations like Revlon Colorstay.
  • Affordable.
  • The only con that I can think of is the availability in the UK, Sigma is an American company and so for us Brits the brushes have to be sent overseas which takes time. The delivery charge is very reasonable though, works out at about £3 for standard international delivery! 

Would I purchase it with my own money?

Yes, I have a list of brushes that I want to buy at some point based on my experience with this one. If you are looking for a decent affordable foundation brush I'd definitely hit Sigma up, especially the F80. It costs $16 which is about £9.50 at the moment and if care is taken I think the brush would last you years! I can't imagine applying my foundation with a different brush. Flat top is definitely the way forward.

Have a looksy at my video applying foundation with it:

Cue silly makeup putting on faces and iPhone camera-ness.

Have you tried Sigma brushes?
