NEW! Sigma Sigmax Flat Angled Brushes

Sigma Beauty has added some new brushes to their Synthetic Sigmax line, featuring the same design/bristles/handles of the original brushes, but a new Flat Angled shape.  I've raved about the Sigmax line for some time now, and I'm happy to say these new brushes are the same quality as the others I've tried.


**NOTE: Sigma is offering 10% off all orders in July with the coupon code AP2012 !**


The new F88 Flat Angled Kabuki and P88 Precision Flat Angled brushes are like big and little versions of the same brush, featuring an angled, flat top of synthetic bristles.  These are like a combination of the F80/P80 (flat top) and F84/P84 (angled) brushes.


The F88 is a full sized kabuki brush.  This is the same size as the other Sigmax F Series brushes, and I find that the angle of the bristles because it really helps work around the nose and other harder to blend areas of the face.


Synthetic bristles work especially well with cream/liquid products because synthetic fibers absorb less product than natural hair fibers.  This works well with my everyday foundations.


The F88 is extremely dense, and very soft.  You can purchase it individually for $16, or in a set with the four other Sigmax F Series brushes for $69.

The P88 is exactly the same shape as the F88, only miniature.  The P88 is the same size as the other P Series Sigmax brushes, and like the F88, the angled bristles help around more detailed areas of the face (eyes, nose, etc.)


I like using this brush to apply and blend cream eye products, mostly concealers and eyeshadow primers.  I've even used this with setting powder and it worked really well.



The P88 is also very dense and soft!  This brush retails individually for $14, or in a set with the four other P Series Sigmax brushes for $59.


If these seem like the type of brushes you like to use for makeup application, I really recommend giving them a try.  They are soft, apply and blend well, and never shed on me.


My only complaint with these brushes is they can be a little difficult to get clean.  Because they are extremely dense, I usually have to wash each brush twice to make sure all of the product is off.  Not too much of a hassle, but if you are a quick wash-and-go girl, or a spot clean type, know that these will require more effort to clean.

These products retail exclusively at SigmaBeauty.com.  As I said earlier, you can purchase them individually or in a set with the rest of the brushes from their series.  However, you can now also purchase all 10 Sigmax brushes in one large set for $119.

For the month of July, you can also use the coupon code AP2012 to receive 10% off of your order.

What are your favorite brushes for foundation/concealer?
