Hey guys! I recently became a Sigma Beauty affiliate and that is making me such a happy camper! Since I want to be open with you guys, me being a Sigma Beauty affiliate means that if you click on one of my affiliate links and then place an order, I could receive a small commission on that sale, at no extra expense to you of course. If you don’t like that, you can always avoid my links and just head straight to the Sigma website to do your shopping.
So moving on! I got my very first Sigma brushes last Christmas when my husband surprised me with the Mrs. Bunny Travel Kit. I’ve been using these brushes pretty much daily since then and I really love them! They are all SO soft, have held up perfectly well and the E40 blends like a champ.
When I was told that I would be receiving a welcome gift, I was practically giddy with excitement waiting to see what lovely Sigma goodies were in store for me! I’ve loved their brushes for a while now but hadn’t had the chance to try out any of their makeup products before so I was super stoked when it arrived. I’ve had this package for several days now but I wanted to wait until I could get a chance to actually use everything before sharing this post with you.
Sigma was kind enough to send me the Sigma E55 brush, the Sigma E06 brush, the Sigma 3DHD Precision brush, a Lip Vex, a powder blush, a gel eyeliner and samples of their highlighters in my welcome package so that I could try these things out!
Today I’m going to be discussing and reviewing the brushes with you and tomorrow I’ll be sharing the makeup products.
While Sigma makes some lovely makeup products, they’re probably best known for their awesome brushes.
This brush is unlike any other brush I’ve ever seen. Not gonna lie, when I first got a look at the Sigma 3DHD Precision brush I was slightly perplexed and was just wondering “How is this going to benefit me?” because initially it just didn’t really look like it was going to be terribly useful. After using it though, it actually turned out to be a really nice brush! It’s hard to show the shape of this brush in photos so I’m including this handy dandy tiny little video so you guys can get a better idea of how this brush looks.
It looks a little gimmicky at first glance but once you get to use it, you realize that it’s unique shape really does have a purpose. The pointed tips allow you to easily and precisely get your concealer into the inner corner of your under eye area and then you just flip it on its side and the contours on the side of the brush easily move right along your lower lash line, allowing you to get right up in there without making any crazy facial expressions or moving your head all around.
If you’re like me and like to do your eye makeup before your face makeup, I’m sure you know how challenging it can be to not mess up your eye makeup when applying your foundation or concealer. It’s a serious struggle but this brush makes it easier to work around already applied eye makeup.
I also feel like this brush would be really useful for concealing around the edges of your lips after applying lipstick for a really clean lip line as well as for contouring small areas of the face such as your nose. I haven’t actually gotten to test these theories just yet but I will be soon! 😛
The Sigma E55 Eye Shading brush is one of those brushes that has a purpose in pretty much every eyeshadow look. It’s flat and slightly rounded brush head make it ideal for applying color to the lid as well as for highlighting under your brow bone.
Okay guys, I’m saving my favorite for last here! The Sigma E06 Winged Liner brush is the eyeliner brush that I’ve been searching for. In this photo we have the Sigma E06, the Sigma E65 and a Sephora brand angled brush, which I consider to be a pretty standard sized angled liner brush. As you can see, the Sigma E06 is a really tiny angled brush meaning it gives you a whole lot of control over your eyeliner making it easier to create very precise lines. When I do my eyeliner, I usually use a gel liner for the most part but I also cheat a little and use a liquid liner pen to line the very inner corners of my eyes because I tend screw things up when trying to use a regular eyeliner brush in such a small area. Well, not any more! The E65 allows me to line the inner corner of my eyes without hassle! Since it is such a small brush, it can’t hold as much product though so you’ll have to keep redipping it.
So there you have it! A breakdown of the Sigma 3DHD Precision, the Sigma E55 and the Sigma E06. I’ll be making another post soon to share all of the makeup goodies with you all.
Have you tried any Sigma brushes yet? What are your favorites?
