A couple of days ago I received the Sigma F80 Flat top kabuki brush. I was sent this product by Sigma and I have to say that I had been waiting to try this for the longest time so imagine my joy when it came in the post.It came packaged very nicely and securely which was an added bonus to the whole thing!Check it out...
I have never a big fan of liquid foundations because of the time it takes me to blend them into the skin seamlessly. I own the face & body foundation by MAC and a tinted moisturizer by Bobbi Brown(which is actually much thicker than the foundation). Both of these "foundations" sink into the skin relatively quickly however they will streak if they are not blended in.
I have tried a number of brushes(including MAC's 187 and ELF's powder brush from their studio line) and I have experienced streaking with every single one of them(on different levels of course but still...).
Now, I have been using the F80 for a couple of days now. I have been blending in my foundation, tinted moisturizer and concealer using this brush and I have seen no streaking whatsoever. Now, it's time for pros and cons ;)
Amazing for blending
Densly packed bristles
Gives your foundation a flawless look
It is synthetic
Extremely soft bristles
Great for liquid, cream and powder products
No shedding (and believe me this is important especially when you've had a 40-odd euro brush shedding on you for the past 2 years)
Because this is a kabuki brush and the bristes are so packed it takes a little longer for it to dry(around 12 hours from my experience).
All in all a great multi-use brush!!
Now, if you guys want a chance to win this brush visit my blog tomorrow ;) *hint hint* :P
p.s. I am registered as a Sigma affiliate and I was sent this product, as I already mentioned, however this post still reflects my personal opinion about this product!!
