This is going to be a very long picture heavy post; you’ve been warned as I’m reviewing the Sigma Essential 12 Piece Brush Kit. I have been dying to try some Sigma makeup brushes for the longest time now, ever since I began watching YouTube video’s three years ago. All of the ‘big’ YouTuber’s use Sigma brushes in their tutorials, and the results are undoubtedly fantastic. Sigma brushes weren’t readily accessible here in the UK, unless you fancied an heft customs charge so I decided on the full set of Real Techniques brushes instead.
I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to loving the Real Techniques face brushes, as I really love them however I feel that the Real Techniques Eye Brushes leave a lot to be desired. You only have to watch the Pixiwoo video’s and see the Chapman sisters use the face brushes in all of their tutorials, but never use the eye brushes for eye makeup – only for applying concealer.
For eye makeup they use MAC, Louise Young or Sigma brushes. Beauty Chamber stock a massive selection of Sigma products (140 to be exact), including all of the Sigma brush sets. The brush set I’ve been lusting after, and now own is the Sigma Essential 12 Piece Brush Kit £99.95* which contains five different face brushes and seven different eye brushes.
