Sigma Synthetic Kabuki 5 Brush Kit

Hello everyone! I'm really excited about what I'm showing you today! My very first Sigma brushes. I've lusted after these for ages, and I mean ages. I've been eyeing them up for probably over a year now, but I finally caved in and purchased the Sigma Synthetic Kabuki Kit at the rather pricey £59.99. This is the most I've ever splashed out on brushes, but I have wanted them for ages and they work out much much cheaper than some high end brushes like MAC or Illamasqua.

But anyway, onto the main event!

The brushes arrived in this beautiful Sigma box. I got a little instruction leaflet too. I wasn't expecting all the fancy packaging as I purchased my brushes from Cocktail Cosmetics and not the official Sigma site. My order also arrived within 24 hours, brilliant service!

I also recieved a travel sized E25 blending brush as a free gift, which I thought was really nice. I haven't used it yet but its so so soft, which is promising!

Finally, I'll show you the brushes and explain what each one is and what I've been using it for:

F80, F82, F84, F86, F88
All the brushes are incredibly soft and dense, they're hands down the best quality brushes I've bought.

F80 Flat Kabuki: This is the replacement for my ELF Powder Brush, and although its smaller, its gives a much nicer finish! It really buffs my foundation into the skin. I haven't used this for anything other than foundation and I don't think I will!

F82 Round Kabuki: I haven't had much of a chance to use this for anything other than powder application. I think it would be great for applying mineral powders, blusher and highlight.

F84 Angled Kabuki: So far I've only used this to apply cream blush, and I love it for that! I have to be honest and say it makes applying cream blush much easier than my Real Techniques stippling brush does, but I still like both. I think this could work great for contour, highlight and blush.

F86 Tapered Kabuki: I love this brush. Its made highlighting (both cream and powder) and contouring much easier and more precise! I think it will be great for applying foundation to the nose.

F88 Flat Angled Kabuki: This is the newest addition to Sigma's Kabuki brushes, and I have to be honest and say its the most dissapointing. I tried using it for foundation, but the angle just made it tricky and dragged foundation round my face. So, I'm not too sure what to use it for. I'm sure when I find out I'll love it just as much as the other four, so I just need to keep trying! Any suggestions?

Overall I'm so pleased I finally got these brushes! I'm sure they'll be in many favourites posts to come! Bye for now :) xx
