Hey everyone! I wanted to talk about makeup brushes and a brand I recently discovered and have fallen in love with!
I've recently been on the hunt for makeup brushes so that I can not only have a complete kit, but have one that will last a long time, are nice and soft, good quality and more. I had high expectations for Crown Brushes but the two sets I purchased really disappointed me.
Well, good news for that sad turn of events, I've discovered Sigma Beauty! Now a lot of you may have already heard about Sigma brushes, and what's great about them is that they're similar to MAC brushes. In more ways than one! For quality, brush shapes and more!
These brushes are really nice and soft and I have yet to hear or see anything negative about Sigma brushes! I have personal friends who have previously purchased them, after looking around the market a bit and not necessarily having the budget to buy MAC brushes or other high end brands and then fell upon Sigma. The thing is, you get the same quality if not better as the high end brands, but you're not paying the price! It's great! And on top of that, if you spend 30$ or more, they even throw in a free gift. Awesome right?
If you click on the ad above it will bring you to Sigma'swebsite where you can see the brushes and other products for yourself. I like the idea of being able to purchase individually or the option to buy sets. And another thing to look for is that there's always something on special!
Not everyone needs a full face and eye kit so it's nice that if you do want a kit, they have those options available for purchase. The prices vary, but the quality in the brushes don't! What's fun too is they have a new collection where you can choose a set and select the color you want. There's teal, pink, purple and black. These are the Make Me Up collection. They're super good and if you're looking into investing into great brushes I would definitely recommend these ones! If you look in the picture above you can see the cute colors yourself! If you want to see them bigger go here. They retail for 99$ and though that seems expensive, figure that you're getting 12 brushes and a case for them to be stored in. Excluding the case, it's about 8$ a brush which is really reasonable! And compared to buying them separately, that's saving you 73$!
Oh and just so you guys know, if you buy this kit you even get a free travel size E25 brush! Amazing yes?!
If you guys end up making a purchase at Sigma or already have, tell me about it! I want to know what you bought and why!
