The semi-annual sale at Sigma Beauty has already gotten started, but if you are interested in any of their products it doesn’t end until June 30, 2021 at 9:00 AM CDT. The discount ranges from 35% to 75% off depending on the product, so it really is a good time to check them out if you’ve been meaning to place an order.
I personally really like Sigma brushes and I’ve never had issues with performance or quality. You may hear people point out the 2-year warranty as a selling point, but I’d advise you to consider it to be a limited warranty. It only covers manufacturing defects, but they will replace the brush with the same brush or with a similar brush if that one has been discontinued. I consider this to be limited because even without a warranty, I’ve never encountered a brand that will not replace or refund your money for a manufacturing defect. Now the 2-year time period is likely unique, but a manufacturing defect should show itself way before you get to the 2-year mark. Just something to keep in mind.
Sigma F10 Powder/Blush, $16.25 during sale
You’ve heard me mention this brush several times before, so probably no surprises here. I use this for blush rather than powder, so I can’t tell you if it is good for powder. For blush however, this is a workhorse brush for me. The bristles are loosely packed, giving a diffused application. It works with all textures (including baked gelee), it cleans up easy, and it dries fast. Regular retail price for this brush is $25.00.
Sigma F79 Concealer Blend Kabuki, $11.50 during sale
This is the only brush that I use for my under eye concealer if I’m not using my fingers. I do have to admit though, I’ve only tried a handful of concealer brushes, so I don’t have much to compare it to. It is dense while still being soft enough for the under eye area. This brush isn’t as easy to clean due to the density and using it with concealer, but it does still dry fairly quick. Regular retail price for this brush is $23.00.
Sigma F80 Air Flat Kabuki, $16.25 during sale
I really enjoy using this brush when I want my fuller coverage foundations to look less heavy. I feel like the duo fiber design helps apply foundation in lighter layers. This brush is best for applying foundation in a circular buffing motions. This brush is the hardest to clean, but again, I’d blame that on foundation being more tenacious to remove than blush. You may have also noticed that mine is a little stained, but keep in mind it is nearly 3 years old at this point.
If you are someone that likes to apply foundation in a stippling motion, I would suggest looking into the classic F80. I haven’t personally tried that brush, so I can’t give you any insight, but it is a cult classic, so you shouldn’t struggle to find a review for it.
There is one last caveat with this brush. If you use MAC Studio Fix Fluid, this brush does not get along with that formula. I don’t know why, but at least for me, this brush leaves terrible streak marks on my face. They just don’t go well together. I don’t get streak marks using this brush with NARS Natural Radiant Longwear or Estee Lauder Double Wear. Regular retail for this brush is $25.00.
Sigma Cor-de Rosa Palette, $31.85 during sale
Sigma Warm Neutrals Palette, $31.85 during sale
If you’ve been here for a while you should recognize these two palettes. I’ve done full swatches and given my thoughts on the formula both palettes that I will link for you if you want more details.
Regular retail for each palette is $49.00.
