Sigma Make Me Crazy Travel Brush Set: Review!

Today's featured product is the new Sigma Make Me Crazy Travel Brush set! This set is the travel sister to the larger "Make Me _____" sets Sigma released last year. It contains 7 short-handled brushes: 3 face brushes, and 4 eye brushes.


This set is made of natural bristles, but the brushes included are the exact same ones in the new synthetic Mrs. Bunny set I posted about a few posts back. This is a great alternative if you don't like synthetic brushes, but liked the selection in the Mrs. Bunny travel kit!


So let me start by saying that I LOVE that these have hot pink metal hardware. I don't know what it is, but as soon as a brush has pink on it, I like it ten-- okay twenty-- times more. The three face brushes this F60 (foundation), F30 (all over powder), and F40 (angled blush).

F60, F30, F40

The four eye brushes included in this set are the E40 (tapered blending-- my favorite!!), E55 (eye shader), E65 (small angled), and E30 (pencil).

E40, E55, E65, E30

The set as a whole has a great selection of brushes and is very aesthetically pleasing. One thing I also love about the Sigma travel sets is they don't cut down on quality in comparison to the full size brushes. Every brush is still handmade (unlike MAC's horrendous travel kits!).



Last, but not least, this set comes with one of Sigma signature hard cases, in a magenta shade!


I think this is a nice set of brushes if you are looking for a varied selection with natural bristles. For me personally, I would opt for the Mrs. Bunny travel kit between the two. The Mrs. Bunny travel kit has the same brush models and is the same price, and I like the performance of those a bit better.

This set retails for $59 and can be purchased on Sigma's website!

Do you like travel brushes? Or do you prefer full-size?

  16. I am thinking of getting this set, I was debating on this or the regular size, do you really need all the brushes in the full size? The travel size seems like it has all you need? I need help.
