Sigma F80 - The Perfect Brush?

I might as well be honest and say i've had the Sigma F80 brush for about three months and have only used it a couple of times. I decided it was time to play around with it and see if it would work for me and i've been so happy with the results! I normally apply my foundation with my fingers as I bought a really cheap flat foundation brush and it just made my foundation streaky. It made me a bit reluctant to try any other brushes for my foundation but as this one is a completely different shape I can see why it works so well.

I currently use Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation so I didn't think it would work as well as liquid foundation when it was applied with a brush but surprisingly it did. I'm not sure if I use more or less foundation than I do when I use my fingers but I don't mind as it gives such an even 'airbrushed' finish. It also makes applying foundation a lot faster as it is quite a big brush and this is great for me as i'm always in a rush! It's also really easy to wash even though there are a lot of bristles and it hasn't shed once which is brilliant.
It's safe to say i've been converted and like a lot of people, the Sigma F80 gets a big thumbs up from me :) You can purchase it from Sigma for $16 which is around £10.

  1. I've heard so many good things about Sigma - they're dupes for a lot of MAC brushes too!

  7. I really want to try some sigma brushes! I just never get around to it! This brush looks amazing, though it still kind of seems expensive (to me) but i suppose it's a very reasonable price compared to the MAC brushes. Thanks for the review! Fern xxx

  10. I absolutely love this brush for liquid foundation...I find i use less product and still get great coverage and I love the way it blends to give you that flawless finish. It's shed a cple of times with me though

  11. I know exactly what you mean missus, the first foundation brush I used was a flat one and it was awful! :( I didnt get what the hype was about. and when I switched to a mac one the same shape as your sigma brush above, it went on so much better and made much more sense :) thanks for the review! xx

  12. This foundation brusher definately looks like something i must buy! I also use maybeline dream matte mouse, but i apply it with a sponge, but i've not been liking how it looks on my skin recently, so the brush alternative will be perfect!! xx
