Sigma Beauty review

Sigma Beauty was kind enough to send me the Sigma Makeup Premium Travel Kit – Sweet in Pink (it also comes in hot pink, black and silver). This kit is seriously a makeup lovers dream come true. It has all of the brushes you would ever need to look fabulous on the go. The kit contains 7 brushes which are individually stored both for the face and eyes.

Packaged very nicely

Inside the kit

The quality is stellar and I was pleasantly surprised that the brushes didn’t shed and were so soft and fluffy. As a bonus to this kit, they also sent me an F60 Foundation Brush that you can add to the kit. Brush cleaning and usage instructions were also included which was much appreciated.

The brushes are comparable to the quality of MAC brushes without the steep price. Honestly after reviewing this kit, I don’t think I’ll ever buy another brand for awhile.

Description of brushes and usage

Bonus F60 Foundation Brush

Here are some more details of the brushes included in the kit:

Large Powder - F30 – This is a great brush for applying loose or compact powder to finish your look.

Duo Fibre - F50 – I am in love with this brush and it’s my favorite one in the kit. It gives a flawless complexion when used to apply liquid foundation. It can also be used for blush, highlighting and loose pigments.

Large Angled Contour - F40 – This brush makes blush application a breeze. It can also be used for contouring and it picks up just the right amount of product.

Eye Shading - E55 – This brush is great for packing shadow onto the eyelid and building color. It makes it easy to go soft or build a more intense color. This can be used with pressed or loose shadows as well as pigments.

Concealer - F70 – This is so nice to have and I don’t know what I did without a concealer brush before. It makes blending concealer so easy and now I don’t have to use my fingers!

Tapered Blending - E40 – This brush is nice for blending eyeshadows and is great for applying color to the crease of your eyelid. You could do a smokey eye easily with this brush.

Pencil - E30 – This brush can be used for multiple purposes. I use it for getting color in the inner and outer corners of my eyelids, but it can also be used to add color to the crease and upper and lower lash lines.

Overall, I was completely satisfied with this kit and it will be coming with me on all trips from here on out. I’ll even use the concealer and duo fibre brushes for everyday! I highly recommend Sigma Beauty after reviewing this kit.

Kit all closed up and ready to pack!

Sigma Beauty sent this free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
