Sigma F80 Brush Review & Giveaway

The Sigma F80 brush comes carefully shipped in a box, and it comes packaged with a plastic bristle protector. You can be sure that it is brand spankin new!

There are a couple stray hairs that shed at first. That is completely normal. After the first wash no hairs shed.

 See how very dense it is! It's very soft too!

This flat top kabuki has a pretty shiny ferule and a long handle for easy handling. Best of all it uses synthetic fibers!

How does it Compare?
Top: elf powder brush - flimsy nonsense compared to the F80. don't understand why people like it so much for foundation.
Middle: Everyday Minerals flat top kabuki brush - less dense, longer bristles, and shorter handle. all reasons why it is inferior to the F80
Bottom: Sigma F80 flat top kabuki - clearly the best of it's kind!

Size Comparisons. Top: Sigma, Left: Elf, Right: Everyday Minerals

I like to dab on the foundation first in one area or all over the face. It depends on if your foundation is fast drying or not.

Then take the brush and quickly buff your foundation on. It provides great coverage and a smooth finish!

I love using this to buff in my liquid foundation. I am not a mineral fdn person because of the mess, tapping, etc. What I did like about minerals was how quick I could apply the foundation. This brush allows me to combine two things I want. A fast application and the use of liquid foundation. It's very easy to dab spots of liquid foundation on my brush and buff it all together seamlessly. The fact that it can be done in a couple of minutes is priceless.

I prefer this over a traditional synthetic foundation brush because the surface area is bigger, and I'm able to apply the makeup faster. Also because of the soft sigmax hd filament bristles and buffing motion it won't streak.

For only $16 it is an amazing value!
