Sigma Dupes : Affordable Make-Up Brushes...

For a while now I have wanted to add some brushes to my collection. I have owned my current brushes for years and they are starting to look a bit worse for wear. I have a few MAC brushes, six Real Techniques brushes and the rest are from E.L.F or unbranded.

Sigma brushes are super popular amongst beauty enthusiasts, make-up artists, bloggers and you tubers right now and rightly so. Sigma brushes are fantastic but not affordable for everyone. 

So, imagine my delight when I found these Sigma dupes on eBay for £8.95!  This set looks like a fantastic dupe for the Sigma Sigmax Essential Kit 10 Brushes which cost $168! 

Here's what you get...

1. Flat Angled Kabuki - Blends foundation onto the hard to reach areas of the face. The angle fits all areas of the face seamlessly. 
2.  Flat Kabuki - Buffs liquid or cream products into flat areas of the face such as the forehead and cheeks.
3. Tapered Kabuki - Apply liquid or cream foundations onto harder to reach contours of the face. Great for under eye concealer too.
4. Angled Kabuki - Buff cream blush or bronzer into the skin.
5. Round Kabuki - Blend mineral products onto the skin.

1. Precision Flat Angled - Use for precise application of concealer anywhere on the face.
2. Precision Flat - Stipple concealer onto sun spots, blemishes and other small imperfections.
3. Precision Round - Apply eye shadow base or primer onto the eyelid.
4. Precision Angled - Apply product to areas such as the side of the nose and hollows of the cheeks.
5. Precision Tapered - Exact placement of concealer in harder to reach areas such as around the eyes, nose, chin and mouth.

This ten piece synthetic brush set costs just £8.95 with free postage. That's less than 90p per brush! They are from a U.K seller and I received them two days after clicking the 'Buy It Now' button. Wow! They came very well packaged with a black zipped pouch and they were all individually enclosed in a plastic covering.

They come in a variety of colours and you can choose a five piece set or ten piece set.

I am so impressed with these brushes, they are super soft and densely packed. They haven't shed a single hair and have made my foundation application so much easier! I use the flat angled kabuki to buff in liquid foundation and it takes much less time than any other brush I have used previously. That's a pretty impressive statement, right?!

I am yet to try all of the brushes but I can see they are all of consistently high quality and definitely on par with Sigma brushes. I cannot wait to use them.

I am sooo glad I bought these, they look pretty on my dresser, they do an amazing job and all ten cost half the price of ONE high end brush! I just wish the seller had a set of eye brushes too, I would be in there like a shot! 

If you are lusting after some Sigma, MAC, Real Techniques or Zooeva brushes and want fantastic high quality brushes but don't want to spend a lot, definitely check these out! They would make a great present for someone for Christmas or be a great starter kit for someone. Or, you could just treat yourself!

    1. Thanks Ellie. I am loving them mostly for foundation. I much prefer the kabuki brushes over my Real Techniques ones! :-0 x
