Hi guysssssss! I received these new @Sigma_Beauty brushes a couple weeks ago along with their Synthetic Brush Kit. The Sigma Kabuki Brush Kit features four gorgeous brushes made with synthetic fibers for maximum high def quality makeup application without absorption into the fibers. The brushes are super soft and apply both powders and liquids really well. Since I received these brushes, I’ve been testing them out for different uses. I tend to use brushes in ways that I think benefit me most rather than what they’re really said to be used for. Luckily, Sigma gives more of guidelines on what each brush can be used for instead of cut and dry directions (like a lip brush or a contour brush).
Angled Top Kabuki – F84
I’ve been using this brush for blush just like you would with any angled brush. I’ve even tried it with a cream blush and it works really well wet or dry. Just a quick cleaning with some brush cleaner and you’re ready to switch it up between products. This angled brush is a lot of like most other angled brushes I must say. Fibers are super soft and the brush is super thick but this one will join the other many angled blush brushes I own.
Round Top Kabuki – F82
Sigma says this would be a great brush for foundations (creams, liquids, or even minerals). I used it once for a light layer of foundation and it works well but I still prefer to use a duo fiber stippling brush for foundation so instead, I use this brush to apply highlighter on my cheekbones. I know, some of you may think I’m an oddball for using this brush for highlighting but hey, it works for me. The bristles are so soft I don’t find it irritating the area below my eyes and the brush applies just the right amount of highlighting powder where I need it.
Tapered Top Kabuki – F86
This brush is probably my favorite of the four because I love the way it looks and the way it feels. Sigma says it can be used to reach all the tougher areas of your face, for contouring, highlighting, or even applying primer. I’m not really sure I’d use it to apply primer but I do like to use it to apply concealer/foundation around my nose area. Occasionally, I try to go without a face full of foundation so I like to cover the redness around my nose with one product and one brush. This would be it. The bristles get right into the space between my cheek and nose perfectly. I don’t think I would use it really for highlighting or contouring but hey, it may work for you.
Flat Top Kabuki – F80
LOVE this brush as well. Super super soft fibers. If you read my post about my Royal and Langnickel brushes before, I was looking for this exact brush that they were out of. I’ve wanted this brush with these kinds of fibers for a while now! I like to use it to buff on powder foundation and to contour my cheeks with bronzer. It puts just the right amount of bronzer on the hollows of my cheeks and is soft enough not to take off any of my foundation as I put the bronzer on. Sigma also recommends this brush for foundation and I completely agree that it’s awesome for applying foundation (liquid or powder).
Hope you guys found this helpful! This set is super versatile and make a great addition to any large brush collection you may already have. I would say it’s definitely worth the $56 for four brushes. The brushes, since I’ve used them, haven’t shed or bled color at all. You can purchase them on Sigma’s website. Keep an eye out for my next post on the Sigma Synthetic Brush Kit with their four-piece eye brush kit 🙂
