Hey guys! ❤ In the beginning of August I signed up for Sigma’s affiliate program. A couple of weeks later I recieved a fabulous package from them with a brush kit, called “performance eye kit” and an eyeshadow palette with one eye shadow from each of their three eye shadow palettes: Flare, Dare and Bare.
I have been wanting to try out their brushes for a long time now, so I was super happy when I got this kit! 😀 And these brushes are perfect for me, because these are very easy to create small details with, (which I always like to do) 😛
The brushes in the kit:
- E56 is a shader brush, which you can use to pack shadows onto your lid with. I like that it’s not all square shaped, but has a rounded tip. This makes it easier to create a pretty round shape, if you’re dragging the lid color up and into your crease. 😉
- E36 is a small and fluffy blending brush which is good for blending out shadows in small areas, like the inner corner of your eye, or in the crease if you have very little space from crease to brow.
- E47 is a crease brush that places and blends out eye shadows beautifully, in the crease.
- E11 is one of my favorites out of these! I’ve always used my MAC 210 liner brush to cut my crease, since it was the tiniest one I knew of. E11 is actually smaller and I can create a more precise and prettier cut crease with it! 😀 Many of you have asked me how I create very precise lines… A good liner brush is the key! 😉
- E46 is a shader brush that is supposed to be used in the inner corner of the eye, to apply your highlight. It is a very small shader brush, with a pointy tip, which makes it perfect to do this job!
- E16 is a tightline liner brush which is great for filling in the space between the lashes, which often is hard to get to. You can fill it in with gel, cream or liquid liners. 🙂
- E21 is a smudge brush, which is also one of my favorites! I love using this one to apply eye shadows to my lower lash line! ❤ It’s also very good for smudging out gel or cream liners along your upper lash line, which is perfect if you want to create a smokey eye! 😉
- E17 is a waterline liner brush. I feel that this brush places the gel or pencil liner onto the waterline very precisely! I don’t get a lot of extra product onto my eye when using this one and that’s definitely good for the eyes. xD
All in all I think these brushes are fabulous! I’ve found a special use for each of them, which make my looks look more precise! ^-^ This kit costs 55$ and you can check it out here! ( It’s my affiliate link! 😀 ) 10 % off Discount code that you can use the entire month of October: DEAL2012 😀
These are the shadows I got. 🙂 I’ve used mostly “Publicize”, as my highlight color. It’s matte and a little bit lighter than my skin, so it’s perfect for that purpose! 🙂 The other two colors, I’ve only tried ones.
Surrender is a very pretty burgundy, which would look very good in a fall look! Command is a shimmery gold that would glamour up any look! ;D I like these colors a lot, especially Publicize, which is from the Flare palette. The Flare palette is the palette from Sigma that I’ve always wanted the most, since it contains some really beautiful greens and purples! ❤
Here are links to the palettes, if you want to check out all the colors they contain:
Here’s a couple of video tutorial’s I’ve done, where I use the brushes:
In the first video I’m using the E56 shader brush on my lid, the E11 liner brush to create precise lines, the E16 tightline brush to apply a sticky glitter base and the glitter, the E21 smudge brush on my lower lash line. I’m also using Publicize as a brow bone highlight. I’m so sorry that I say “Hare” palette in stead of “Flare” palette in these videos, I just didn’t notice it until after I’d filmed them 😛
Here I use Publicize and E21 (the smudge brush):
I hope you liked this review of these Sigma brushes and eye shadows and thank you so much Sigma, for letting me try these out! 😀 ❤
