MOTD: Sigma Makeup Brush Review (Patriotic)

Yesterday I received my new Sigma Makeup brushes. I love my MAC brushes, but as I am broke, I was probably not going to own them all until 2025. So I heard this rumor that Sigma brushes were like MAC brushes, but affordable. As a growing make-up guru, I had to test this theory. So today I used my sigma brushes and… they are everything I heard they were. Wouldn’t even mind a second set… but well… you know…

I am reviewing: Sigma Makeup Professional Brushes Complete Kit in Pink - $89.00

Comes with 12 brushes (and a bonus brush) + a brush roll

Pros
Great coverage
Soft bristles
Great handles (seriously they are that heavy feel so you always feel in control. The handles are also long so no slippage)
Cons
Only one con as far as I can see… the initial shedding. Every brand has that shed you must endure 3 hairs on the larger brushes aren’t bad. No shedding on the smaller brushes. So seriously, not any con.

Needless to say, at this point, I love these professional brushes. I even did my MOTD with them. Tell me what you think. Remember the brushes use the same numbering as MAC but with SS preceding.

I'm calling this look: Patriotic
