Review: Sigma Travel Kit + Giveaway

Hey all, I recently purchased a Sigma Travel Kit in Naughty in Black and wanted to do a quick review on it. I had first heard about these brushes from YouTube Gurus and honestly, I was a bit skeptical about whether or not they were worth all the hype. I decided to go ahead and purchase the travel kit since I didn't own any travel sized brushes and do travel every now and then. The kit came with 7 brushes (click the link for more detailed info) and also a complimentary SS187. To my surprise, I also received a full size Indian Girl eyeshadow (a shimmery brown) for free. The brushes come with a leather-like pouch for storage and comes shipped in a purple baggie as well as instructions on how to care for them. So far, I'm really happy with the quality of the brushes. I own a few MAC brushes and the quality between the two brands is very comparable. They are very soft and durable. I've washed them a couple times and I haven't experienced any excessive shedding- just a couple hairs here and there.


My two favorite brushes from the kit are the SS187 and SS150. The SS187 is a Duo Fibre brush, like the MAC 187 (Sigma brushes are number in relation to their MAC counterpart). I actually own the MAC version (which I love). When comparing the two, there are very similar and actually produce the same results for me when applying my liquid foundation. I also love the SS150, in terms of quality and density. It's a great full brush that is really soft and great for applying powder.

The best part about the kit is that it only cost $49 + $4 shipping. If you do the math, that is a under $7 per brush, plus you get a carrying pouch as well as a full size eyeshadow. It is also very handy and easy to pack if you're on the go. If you want an even better deal for everyday use, purchase the full size complete kit....I just might :)

Now, for the fun part...Sigma Makeup were gracious enough to offer a free giveaway to my readers. This is great for those of you who want to test out their products.

  2. Nice review! I always wanted to try Sigma brushes out! I was looking to get a dupe of the 217 brush because I had to give back my sister hers that I was using and I was considering ordering from Sigma!
