Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki - F80
Yes, yes, this Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki - F80 is my first Sigma brush as per joining the Sigma Affiliate Program. And my how excited I was to test it out that I even forgot to take the initial pictures. So pardon me if the brush is a little dirty. I have been applying foundation with it. Read on to know how did Sigma F80 treat me.
“This exclusive flat top synthetic kabuki was designed to deliver a flawless makeup application. The Sigma Makeup F80 is a buffer brush that can be used to blend powder or liquid products. The short and dense bristles make it easy to buff your liquid foundation. The long handle adds comfort to your makeup application. The synthetic fibers are ideal to be used with liquid products and can be easily cleaned. Made of Synthetic Sigmax HD filament.”
Now for the first look. The brush came beautifully packaged in a red translucent bag. Out of it came a Welcome Card, a catalogue on Face Edition range, a pamphlet on Sigma Affiliate Program and the F80 Brush itself.
F80 has a luxurious look to it. It has a handle that can be comfortably held. And it so flat that it can even stand upright. The minute I slid fingers on the bristles I was IN LOVE. Nothing had ever felt this smooth. I couldn’t help gliding the brush again and again on my face. I didn’t even want to tarnish it at first. But then I finally coerced myself to test it out with Maybelline Wonder Finish Foundation and see for myself what Sigma claims about this brush.
Here's a closer look!
The brush buffed out the foundation so well, gliding smoothly that I was hell impressed. It felt like air brushing. It effortlessly blended the foundation like magic. I did not see any lines, streaky marks or uneven surface after that. My face had a perfect finish. F80 did not eat any product at all which most brushes tend to do.
I used F80 to apply blush as well. It is a foundation brush first but it still managed to blend my blush well. Though it does not pick up the blush that easily so you need to build it up. For perfect blush application you need the Angled Top Synthetic Kabuki - F84.
Well, washing this brush could be a little difficult as it is quite dense and it takes time drying out. But seriously who’s complaining about this beauty.
Compared to the MAC brushes, F80 is as unbeatable plus coming with a cheaper price tag of $16.00. It gives a beautiful finish to your foundation while not being a load on your budget.
