Review & Giveaway: Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush


Hello, Gorgeous!  I've definitely been in need of some new brushes for a while, so I was excited to receive this synthetic flat top Kabuki brush from Sigma Beauty this weekend!  This brush is designed to buff both powder and liquid makeup for a smooth, flawless finish.  The synthetic bristles are also easier to clean than natural hair, though I still enjoy brushes with natural bristles as well.

When I first opened up my package, I was pleased to see that this brush was wrapped in a cute red gift bag and was stored in a protective plastic sleeve to keep the bristles from getting damaged.  I always like to keep these protective sleeves if they are sturdy enough (which this one is) to help extend the life of my brushes.

I first tried this brush out on some liquid foundation.  I applied the foundation with my fingertips, then used this brush to blend.  I was impressed with how soft the bristles are, and also how quickly the foundation blended into my skin!

After I cleaned this brush and let it dry overnight, I also tried it out for applying my blush.  Again, I really enjoyed how nicely it felt on my face, and how well it blended my makeup.  Although I've never spent a fortune on makeup brushes, I have typically used ones from brands such as Benefit, Estee Lauder, and Sephora, but I must say, this is definitely the softest, nicest Kabuki I've ever tried!  Plus, you can buy this brush for just $16 (and you'll get a free gift if you spend $30 or more)!
