I went hauling with a brand Id never purchase before, and now Im so glad I did. Find out what I loved the most and what I wouldn’t buy again…
As if I don’t already have about a thousand brushes. I figured I’d pick up a few more, just because I had seen them doing the rounds on Youtube and making a pretty good job at it. Sigma is a brand I knew of but had never bought into, mainly because I thought you couldn’t buy their products over here. But yet I managed to find a UK store that sold a few items, so I went hauling.
Starting with the Sigma Eye Shadow Base in Persuade. A gorgeous light champagne shade and perfect as a primer and lid base. It can be applied creamily with your fingertips of with a small brush and can really create that flawless base before applying further eyeshadow. Yet on its own with some eyeliner it really helps to brighten the eyes. So lush and something I use a few times a week now. Definitely one for repurchase.
Then I treated myself to three brushes so I didn’t have to pay delivery. I figured Id rather pay £7 for a brush rather than £4 for delivery, so I went for it.
My two faves and daily users are the Diffused Crease brush E38 and Tapered Blending, E40.
The smallest brush, the E38 is a fluffy shading brush, perfect for adding eyeshadow into the eye crease and blending it out into the perfect smokey finish. I use this alongside my MAC 217 now as a dream team duo.
The E40 is the E38 but slightly larger and I use this gem for concealer application. I apply some concealer to my hand, lightly dip in my brush and then work it into the under eyes in circular motions. Whilst I must admit that now and again there is a hair fall out, the greatness of this brush makes up for it. A definite keeper.
Now the F64 Soft Blend Concealer brush is lovely but in honesty, I haven’t found a use for it. I was hoping to use it as a highlighter brush, yet the pointed tip doesn’t make this easy and Ive found applying highlighter much easier with a flat headed brush. Instead, this would work to apply powder to specific areas of the face or perhaps a contour under your cheek bones, but Im yet to try that out, only because I already have brushes that do that.
So in all, a very successful haul I feel and one that has brought me a few new favourites!
