Cheeky Beauty Haul Part 1: Sigma Makeup Brushes

Hey guys, remember me? I am so sorry I have been MIA the last month and a half, I won't bore you with the details but I have been a busy bee, my husband and I are currently on the search for our first home so that has been an all-consuming endeavour.

So anyway, even though I have been busy house-hunting I have actually managed to fit in a fair amount of shopping, in particular beauty and fashion! Because I have bought a fair bit I have decided to split my posts into a few parts: so today I am going to share with you my recent foray into Sigma Beauty Brushes!

Excuse the dirty brushes (oops!)

I am so excited that I am now in the possession of these babies! I ordered them through Amazon UK; they arrived a couple of days ago and I have been busy testing them out. Here are my thoughts so far:

Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki Brush - this is hands down my favourite of the three. It is just so soft and buffs the foundation into my skin so beautifully it looks airbrushed. Not only that, but I really feel that using this brush helps to prolong the wear of my foundation; when I don't use the F80 I feel like by the end of the day, my foundation has lifted out of my skin and just sits on top in a greasy mess, ew. Yes, it is safe to say, I am in L-O-V-E.

Sigma E35 Tapered Blending Brush - I used to own a MAC 217 a few months ago but I lost it when I went home to Australia to get married, however I suspect that actually one of my sisters stole it! Now that I am in possesion of this blending wonder, I can get back to doing those lovely blended smokey eye looks again. It is very soft and very similar to the MAC 217, perhaps slightly longer. I am enjoying using this.

Sigma E75 Angled Brow Brush - this is the least favourite of my Sigma purchases. I tried using it on my brows but the bristles are too bendy and thin, I feel like it doesnt put enough powder into my brows nor can I get much control with it. I then tried to use it to apply gel eyeliner to create a cat eye, but again the bristles were too flexible and I ended up poking myself in the eye. But I will persevere and try and find a use for it.

Have you tried Sigma make up brushes? What are your faves? What are ones to avoid?

This was taken at the end of my work day and apart from touching up with translucent powder my base is still flawless thanks to my new love!
