A while back ago, Sigma sent me a bunch of their brushes to try out. I wanted to do a review like you wanted me to but I didn’t know what to say about them really. I grew up with M.A.C brushes and I did find some glitches to them but for the price you’re paying, it made them pretty obsolete. I didn’t want to compare it to M.A.C but that was all I had to compare them to. I decided not to do a review until I had more to say than just saying that they did the job aside from a few stray hairs. This was my story until I tried their synthetic range and boy was I up for a surprise. Today I’ll be doing a review of the Sigma F82 Round Top Kabuki, a pretty popular Sigma brush and something that has made it to my must-have list.
The Sigma F82 Round Top Kabuki is a long handled synthetic fiber brush that is dome shaped. It is fluffy, very soft and still firm which makes it a dream to apply foundation with. I literally feel like I’m erasing all my flaws in circular motions. I love how quickly and flawlessly I can do up my foundation and it’s great for almost all types. A paddle brush may suit only liquid foundation and a sponge may be great for cream, but this is so versatile that it suits all foundation finishes – great for cream, liquid and even mousse. It just erases flaws like a giant eraser! At first it might cause a few streaks but keep on buffing the product in and you’ll be fine.
Thought it might be helpful to show you up close that the brush blends the foundation flawlessly into the skin as well. I tend to use cream or balm concealers and I love how I can just dot the concealer on and use this brush again and pat the concealer in. It blends beautifully. It’s such a no-brainer and easy to use brush.
I honestly really have no complaints about this brush. It’s one of my favourites and I look forward to using it everyday with my foundations because it applies it quickly and blends in easier than my fingers can do. I like to pat in my foundation with my fingers gently after I’m finished just in case. I have also tried their flat top kabuki, the Sigma F80 and I love it as well – I don’t see a difference in functionality between the two brushes but I am very impressed. Mine did not shed, or bleed, or go pokey. I love it.
I recommend this brush for it’s versatility in being able to apply almost any type of foundation, how easy and quick it is to use, and how wonderfully it helps blend your foundation into the skin. A total thumbs up from me!
