All Hallows Eve and winter holidays are just around the corner, and I am sorely tempted to post some spooky and fall appropriate articles.
Furthermore, I’m pleased to announce that I am currently reading the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan; I have been receiving a lot of messages regarding books, and I promise that I shall henceforth endeavour to post book reviews. I have recently finished the second book of the series; I was expecting a bit more adventure as individuals compare Percy Jackson with Harry Potter. I was able to spot a lot of similarities, but the first book of the series was exceptionally boring. I left it in the middle and finished ‘Hopeless’ and ‘Losing Hope’ by Colleen Hoover. Let me know if you’d like to see a review of those.
This particular post is all about a brand called ‘Sigma Beauty’. I’d like to make it clear that I do not invest much in brushes even though I require them to blend my eyeshadows. I used to apply makeup with fingertips back when I was in high school. However, I have acquired quite a few brushes over the past couple of years. I have heard a lot about Sigma Beauty as it’s one of the finest makeup brands out there in the market. Most of my favourite YouTubers prefer Sigma over Morphe and Real Techniques. Sigma Beauty is not available in Pakistan, but you could place an order online as they ship worldwide. They have sent me a huge box of goodies as I have joined their affiliate program. It took me a while to test the products as I did not want to ruin their packaging. The best thing about Sigma is that they personalise everything; I really liked the fact that my parcel came with a handwritten note. Let’s proceed ahead with the review. Shall we?
I came across this brush a while back but never bothered to purchase it as I could not understand its shape. Fortunately, I received this in my welcome gift and was astonished to see the outcome. The brush itself is made up of heavy material, and the bristles are exceptionally soft. It is a multifunctional brush; I sometimes use it to bake my under eye area or to contour as it has two sharp angles. You could buff your foundation or apply a highlighter with it as it blends smoothly and gives a flawless texture. It’s one of my favourite brushes out of the lot.
This particular brush has been designed to cover all unreachable places of your face. I personally use it to apply my concealer. I also tried to contour the sides of my nose with it as it has 2 sharp angles just like 3DHD kabuki; it worked well for me. You could skip this one and invest in other useful brushes if you are not a massive fan of concealers.
E54 Medium Sweeper:
This brush is a must-have if you’re into cream eyeshadows as it packs the product nicely. It covers the entire lid in two swipes. Of course, your eyeshadow needs to be pigmented enough for that, but E54 works like a magic potion. I sometimes use it to blend my lower lash line even though it’s quite dense and wide for blending. Also, you could use it to highlight your brow bone.
E39 Buff and Blend:
This brush is my favourite out of the lot. I use it to blend harsh lines as it has a dense and round head. It is certainly a necessity for each and every makeup fanatic out there. The bristles are soft and light; they almost feel feathery on my eyelids. I do not like to use harsh brushes that are stiff and hard to work with.
E55 Eye Shading:
I did not receive a full version of this brush, but I do not mind adding a couple of travel size ones in my collection. It’s pink in colour and has the softest bristles. It provides even and strong application; it actually packs the pigment and gives you full coverage.
You must be aware of the fact that Sigma brushes have 8 coats of paint and are scratch-resistant. Moreover, they feel heavy and luxurious. I’d recommend you to invest in good quality brushes as harsh and stiff ones can damage your skin. Hence, it’s essential to save a couple of bucks for good quality products.
