Sigma Brushes Review & Sigma Affiliate Program

I've been making several purchases from Sigma because of all the good reviews that I've heard about them from You Tube and other beauty bloggers. I bought the Sigma Flat Top F80 kabuki and the large Shader brush a few months ago. Here are my thoughts..


F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush



Pros

-This brush can be used for applying foundation (cream or liquid), applying blush and applying powder.
-It works as a buffer and blending brush,which is great for foundation.
-It's very dense and doesn't use that much product.
-The bristles are soft and easy to clean.
-Unlike a duo fibre brush, it doesn't streak when applying liquid foundation.

Cons
-It's a little on the short side, I do wish it was a bit longer.

Overall, I im in LOVE with this brush! It has replaced all of my foundation brushes. The price ($16) is reasonable for it's many uses.  It's a Sigma exclusive brush, so it can only be purcashed from Sigma.This is definitely a must have brush for any makeup wearer.



E60 Large Shader Brush

Pros

-Made of synthetic bristles, so it's easier to clean.
-It's great for applying pigments or cream emollients like eyeshadow bases or cream shadows to the eye.
-It's a rounded-square shape, so it's easy apply shadows on all eye shapes.
- Great for packing on color.
-Price is $9!

I have no cons at all about this brush. This brush is similar to the Mac 242 shader brush but it's larger. I use the Mac 242 for smaller eyes because it's a smaller brush but I needed a larger shader brush for my kit for clients with larger eyes. I used the Sigma shader brush on a client with larger eyes last month and it was a breeze to apply eye base and shadows to her eyes.

Sigma Affiliate Program

Some of you may know that Sigma Beauty now has an affiliate program, what that means is you can get paid to advertise their products. I am a Sigma affiliate and I would only encourage you to join if you've purchased and like their products. I didn't know anything about their brushes, so I purchased the brushes first and tested them so that I could give you all an honest review of them.

To see how the program works, view the video below!



To view their site and sign up click HERE!  I thought an affiliate program was a new idea but I didn't know that there are all sorts of other companies like Elf and Avon that allow you to become an affiliate and advertise their products.

Disclosure- I am a Sigma affiliate, however; no one has paid me to write, review or purchase their products. I've paid for the Sigma products with my own money and my thoughts are honest and unbiased.

I am absolutely in love with the brush. It's so soft, and the coverage is amazing. I need to buy some more but I'm saving some money first. I want to buy the kabuki set. I think it's call sigmax high definition brush or something. Thank you again :)

I'm glad that you love the brush Kristina! It's one of my favorites. I do plan to purchase the round Kabuki brush from Sigma as well.

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!



Before


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

-For the price you pay it gives you a lot of foundation. It's in a 4 fl oz bottle.
-Because it's water based it doesn't feel heavy, it feels very light on the face.
