Sigma Brushes- Make me Crazy

MaKe Me CrAzY!

This is my very first investment in Sigma brushes as I have always used MAC brushes.

Sigma brushes are raved about all over blog and You Tube world so I thought I would get myself a piece of the action and as I didn't have a full set of brushes I thought, what a perfect place to start?! :)

I ordered them from the Sigma website, with postage added, the final sum was $107.65 altogether, which works out as £67.67

I was not disappointed when I got this collection!

The brushes are of gorgeous quality and the purple colour is absolutely beautiful!

Sigma has put this collection together from their best selling brushes on their website, with the collection available in Black, Purple, Pink and Turquoise.

I have the Purple collection which is the 'Make me Crazy' collection

There are 12 brushes altogether and here is a break down of them all:

Eyeliner - E05 

fine tipped synthetic fibre brush for a perfect line to the eyes. 

Pencil - E30 

Natural Bristles...Precise application of colour on the crease, outer corner, and upper and lower lash line. Also ideal to smudge out pencil liner.

Tapered Blending - E40

Rounded and tapered top. Use to apply and blend colour on the crease. Natural bristles. 

Eye Shading - E55 

Soft and dense with a rounded finish. Can be used to apply pressed or loose eye shadows and pigments. Natural bristles.

Large Shader - E60 

Flat shape is ideal for application of cream formulas  It also works great with loose eye shadows or pigments. Can be used to apply colour all over the lid. Natural bristles.

Small Angle - E65

Can be used for the application of gel or eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line. This brush is also excellent for filling out the eyebrows. Synthetic bristles.

Foundation - F60

Concealer - F70 

The rounded, tapered, flat shape makes this brush ideal to conceal the under eye area. It is also recommended for a precise application in small areas. Synthetic bristles.

The holder which the brushes come in changes in to two brush holders too! Perfect for travelling as the case is  solid and sturdy, perfect for keeping all those lovely brushes safe!

The hollow case splits in half and is secure by popper tabs at each side.

Of course, all these brushes don't have to be used for the stated purpose for example I use the tapered blending brush for buffing in concealer too! :)

Gorgeous set of brushes I would give them 10/10

Beautiful colour, a lot different to the usual black handled brushes.

My favourite brush from the kit 'small angled brush' for my eyebrows and pencil brush for perfect application of colour to the crease!

Have you purchased any of the Make me... brush kits from Sigma?
