Make-up Brushes: Sigma Professional Premium Kit

Sigma have a new brush kit called the Professional Premium Kit. I have been using the brushes for about a month now so I thought it was high time I shared. (I also left a video I made on ‘Budget Make-up Brushes’ below)

I bought the Sigma Complete Kit (€70) two years ago and love it. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a basics kit, or for MAC brush dupes. The brushes in the new kit are different to the ones I already have.  It contains fifteen unique brushes that compliment the original kit.

The brushes  come with brush protectors which I always use. It helps protect the brush and maintain the shape.

 

I love the way Sigma packages arrive – almost gift wrapped. I always like when companies put effort into packaging. The brush roll is soft and flexible.

A closer look at the brushes…

Flat Definer E15, Small Eye Liner E10

Tapered Blending – E35 – Fluffy, long-bristled brush with tapered tip. Ideally used to apply and blend color to the crease area and to soften harsh edges.

Small Tapered Blending – E45 – Small domed brush with highly tapered tip. Versatile, this brush can be used to precisely apply and blend intense colors to the crease area.

Short Shader – E20 – Flat, short, slightly rounded and dense brush. Perfect for precisely applying colors on the lid and smudging along the lash line.

Flat Definer – E15 – Small, firm, and flat, this unique brush can be used to line the eyes for instant definition. Can be used with powder, liquid, or cream products.

Small Eye Liner – E10 – Delivers a precise fine-line along the lash line. The length and density of the bristles are ideal for creating artistic designs.

These are great brushes. They are much cheaper than MAC and provide the same quality. I think I shall buy myself the pink travel set before the summer.

I would highly recommend these to those of you who want to head down the make-up artistry road. I use them alongside my MAC and Make Up For Ever brushes – they’re completely interchangeable. Had I know how great these were I could have saved myself a fortune!

On that note here is a video I recorded last year where I have a little bit of a Sigma rave whilst also yapping on about my other favourite budget brushes.
