Review: Sigma Flat Top Kabuki Brush (F80)


001. Hello Lovelies, I was kindly sent this lovely brush from Sigma to review. I saw a tweet from Sigma which said they had a new Affiliate Program, after reading a little bit about it I decided to apply, it was really simple to do so. There's a part of the program that allows you to receive a 'reward' depending on the number of subscribers or followers you have on YouTube or Blogger. So thanks to all my lovely YouTubers & Bloggers, I was eligible for the Flat Top Kabuki Brush.

002. I've made a YouTube video dedicated to this wonderful brush if you would like to watch that then click here.




003. So on to the brush, it retails at $16, which is about £10. So your looking along the same price as Gosh's foundation brush. Which if you watch my YouTube videos you will already know I LOVE the gosh foundation brush which is similar to the MAC 190. Anyhow what I really like about this Brush is how unique it is. I've seen the duo-fibre brushes from MAC I own the 188, which is perfect for blush, rather than foundation as it is pretty small. The 187 is probably better, but I didn't like how streaky the brush was when I did use it for foundation. (But that's a whole other review) So this brush I found really unique, because firstly it's a kabuki brush, but it's the perfect shape for 'buffing' product into the skin, either moisturiser, tinted moisturiser, liquid foundation, or powder/bronzer.

004. I opted to use it for Liquid foundation, and it is PERFECT for that, I love how easy it is to quickly apply foundation to my face. Takes literally a few minutes to buff the foundation into the skin, and the result is perfect even foundation.

005. The brush itself is lovely and dense, it also doesn't shed, I've washed it a few times, and used it a lot, and haven't noticed any shedding, which is great. The handle is a bit shorter than a MAC one, but it is still a full size brush. It's a good weight aswell, so it's great for on the go.

006. I can't think of any downsides to this brush, I've literally loved using it. There are other Kabuki brushes in the range, which I think would be perfect for blush, bronzer, and contouring. I really like how affordable Sigma brushes are, in comparison to higher end Make Up brands. The quality of the brushes are amazing, I only own a few MAC brushes, but I think the quality is definitely similar if not the same as MAC brushes.

007. If you have a blog or youtube you should definitely consider applying to be part of the Sigma Affiliate program, it's a great way to try out Sigma Brushes :)

Have any of you tried any Sigma brushes, if so what are your thoughts?

Take care & Speak soon
