12 Pc Sigma Professional Makeup Brush Set Review | Quality Soft Bristle Brushes with Case

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

Sigma Makeup 12 pc Professional KitThe 12 piece Sigma Professional Brush Set is designed to be of the highest quality to give you all the equipment you need to get a perfectly flawless look. This comes with a protective synthetic/leather look case to store brushes, it is handy for traveling.

All the brushes in the kit are made from natural or synthetic bristles, sometimes even a mix of the two. The handles are black and have a silver metal tip to hold the bristles in place, so they should be pretty sturdy even when cleaning.

Sigma have also included a free gift with this set, you should get a SS217 eyeshadow brush with the kit.

The Kit Includes:

  1. SS150 Large Powder Brush.(for applying powder to face and body).
  2. SS190 Foundation Brush (suitable for liquid or cream foundation).
  3. SS187 Large duo fiber brush (should leave skin with the airbrushed look after applying liquid foundation).
  4. SS168 Large angled brush (Ideal for applying blush or contour shades).
  5. SS194 Concealer brush (ideal for concealing imperfections under the eyes).
  6. SS275 Small angled brush (used to apply highlights under the brows and the inner corners of the eyes).
  7. SS266 Angled eyeliner brush (to apply liquid or gel eyeliner to the upper or lower lash lines).
  8. SS252 Large shader brush (ideal for creams and eyeshadow primers).
  9. SS219 Pencil brush (to apply color to the crease of the eye lid, outer corner and upper and lower lash line).
  10. SS224 Blending brush (ideal for blending colors on the crease of the eye lid).
  11. SS209 Liner brush (a firm brush to apply precise lines to the eyes).
  12. SS239 Medium Shader brush (ideal for applying loose or pressed eyeshadow to the lids).

Users Conclusions

I have compiled the lists below from the users reviews on amazon:


  • Good quality
  • No loose bristles
  • Soft
  • Great value for money


  • Some bristles do fall out of the bigger brushes (according to a couple of users)

To Sum Up

The majority of users relished the Sigma brush set, even comparing it to "Mac" brushes. They love the high quality they received for the reasonable price of $89 for the 12 piece set.

A couple of ladies using the bigger foundation brushes said they experienced some bristle fall out but nothing too major.

I think these are worth investing in if you have enough to spare in your budget, you get a full quality set of brushes for a cheaper price than you would pay if you brought them all separately.
