Ahhh... Sigma brushes. Long have I desired to try them for myself, and now I finally have the chance to do so!
Which brush, you ask? It is none other than one of their best-selling brushes, the Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki. :) This brush was kindly sent to me by Blanc2Noir for review.
|Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki brush|
|Hence, "flat top" Kabuki|
|Thick, dense yet luxuriously soft bristles|
The Sigma logo is also engraved on the metal part of the handle.
Now, time to put it to the test! I used Stage Photo Pro Foundation for this review. This liquid foundation has a very runny texture, which is why I used it to test out the F80.
Squeeze a little onto the back of my hand...
Here are the results (before & after). I like how the brush helps me to achieve (near) flawless foundation application. Having used mostly my fingers and the occasional sponge to apply makeup foundation before this, I find that the F80 Flat Kabuki works really well in giving a smooth, even application for liquid and cream type foundations. BB creams also work well with it.
As you can see, using the Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki, foundation application has never looked this good and felt so soft and luxurious. It is best used for liquid and cream foundations (or BB cream) as the dense bristles allow better pick-up and application, and gives a smooth, even finish. With this brush, achieving flawless skin is no longer a dream, haha! (＾▽＾)
✓ Pros: Thick yet soft bristles - gentle on skin, dense bristles pick up foundation very well, flat top makes it easier to buff and achieve even application, brush is sturdy and well-made, bristles do not drop even after washing, good investment brush for frequent makeup users.
✗ Cons: Not available in Malaysia - have to be bought online, price is slightly pricey, not suitable to use with powder foundation.
