Sigma Synthetic Brushes Review | Duluth, MN Makeup Artist

From Sigma’s website:

The Sigmax Synthetic Essential Kit contains eight face brushes specifically designed for a high definition, flawless makeup application. This kit features our exclusive Sigmax synthetic filament, which was created to perfectly apply powder, cream and liquid products onto the skin without absorption into the bristles. The shape, density and height of each brush was designed to compliment the different areas and shapes of the face.The Synthetic Essential Kit has everything you need to achieve a perfect and flawless look!

As stated, all eight of these brushes are made with synthetic bristles which makes them great for use with liquids and creams as they will absorb very little of the product.  The kit comes with four larger brushes ideal for foundation application and four smaller versions more suited for concealer and and application that requires a little more precision, like your lids or under eye area.  They each have a unique shape but all are extremely dense like a kabuki brush, great for buffing in product, even mineral foundations could be used with these.

The four larger foundation brushes included are as follows:

  • F80- Flat Kabuki
  • F82- Round Kabuki
  • F84- Angled Kabuki
  • F86- Tapered Kabuki

The four smaller brushes included are as follows:

  • P80- Precision Flat
  • P82- Precision Round
  • P84- Precision Angled
  • P86- Precision Tapered

These are my first brushes from Sigma and I’ve been really happy with them for the price.  They are very easy to wash and I have not had any issues with shedding thus far.  I personally don’t think it’s necessary to own all of these if simply using them for home however as they are similar enough.  If considering these, my recommendations would be the F82, P80, and P82.

These eight brushes can be bought all together in a set for $99 but they are also available separately in two sets of four, or each brush can be bought on it’s own.

You can find these online directly from Sigma Beauty.

UPDATE 11/1/12:  As I have used these more the past few months they have become my absolute favorite foundation and concealer brushes.  I have had zero shedding and are still in perfect shape.  I cannot recommend them enough!
