If you havent already, you can click here to read my review on Sigma Makeup's travel kit in nice in pink.
You can purchase the set of 3 together (Synthetic Face Kit) for $42 US.
F82 - Round Top KabukiThe F82 Round Top Kabuki brush simplifies precise makeup application under the eyes and around the nose. This brush is also perfect for achieving flawless coverage using liquid and powder products. Synthetic Sigmax HD filament.
F80 - Flat Top Kabuki
The F80 Flat Top Kabuki brush is perfect for applying and blending liquid, cream, and powder products onto the skin. The flat surface allows perfect buffing with flawless results. Synthetic Sigmax HD filament.
F84 - Angled Top Kabuki
The F84 Angled Top Kabuki brush is the perfect brush for precise, yet blended application of products on the cheeks. It seamlessly applies cream, powder and liquid products. Synthetic Sigmax HD filament.
I chose to go with the flat top kabuki because i mainly wanted it to apply foundation. and for that, a flat top would be the most basic and give me the best coverage for all over the face. I feel that the F82 and the F84 are more specialized brushes, which i dont need at the moment, but you never know in the future ;) lol
Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki - F80
"This exclusive flat top synthetic kabuki was designed to deliver a flawless makeup application. The Sigma Makeup F80 is a buffer brush that can be used to blend powder or liquid products. The short and dense bristles make it easy to buff your liquid foundation. The long handle adds comfort to your makeup application. The synthetic fibers are ideal to be used with liquid products and can be easily cleaned."
some pictures for a little comparison....
as you can see, the ELF brush is slightly bigger and the bristles also fan out more allowing you to cover a larger surface area.
however, the Sigma F80 is definitely much more dense allowing a better stippling effect. Also, the sigma F80 bristles absorb less of the foundation, meaning you use less, waste less, and get more on your face :)
- bristles are very soft and dense
- bristles dont absorb too much foundation
- great for stippling giving you airbrushed effect
- good coverage achieved
- relatively inexpensive, $16 US
- some fallout during wash and first few uses
- smaller surface area meaning slightly longer time to cover entire face
- only available through sigma's website
Hope you enjoyed this post :)
