Sigma Angled Top Kabuki F84: Contour and Buff at One Go

Friday, January 14, 2011

Sigma is a beauty brand hailing from the USA, and the brand is most famous for its makeup brushes. That's no surprise - the ones I've tried have been actually worth the price. Good makeup brushes don't come cheap, and some of the most famous brushes (Trish Mcevoy, Shu Uemura, etc) can be prohibitively expensive for a girl on a budget, so it's always great to find a brand that manages to combine both quality and price into one package.

The Sigma Angled Top Kabuki F84, is one-third of the recently-released Sigma Synthetic Face Kit, which I've also briefly reviewed previously. Today's post, as part of my journey to delve into each individual brush in the kit in greater detail, focuses on the Angled Top Kabuki F84. (In case you've missed it, I've previously looked at the Flat Top Kabuki and the Round Top Kabuki previously.)

Sigma Angled Top Kabuki F84

Of all the three kabukis in the Sigma Synthetic Face Set, I have to say this is probably my favourite, probably because it's the most versatile. I love the angled shape, which makes it very handy for applying blush, bronzer, or contouring products. And although this is a kabuki brush, its use doesn't stop at buffing. I think this one could actually apply products, should you wish to use a heavier hand. I think it would be great to apply lightly pigmented products that need building up, because the bristles do tend to pick up quite a bit of product.

Another thing I like about the Angled Top Kabuki is the qualaity of the bristles. These are synthetic bristles that are very fine and soft. I find them comparable in quality to the bristles of some of the other brands with great synthetic brushes, like Urban Decay, The Body Shop, Too Faced, and Ecotools. As far as bristles go, I can't fault this one.

Because the bristles are made out of synthetic material, these brushes are pretty nifty for applying cream and liquid products, in addition to powder. Unlike natural bristles, synthetic bristles don't soak up liquids, so that makes them good for applying cream, gel, and liquid products.

So do you need this brush? I'd say yes, if you use mineral blush, bronzer, or contouring products that require you to buff and blend, or if you've been looking for a contouring brush to apply liquid and cream blushes and bronzers with. The Angled Top Kabuki is of good quality, so if it suits your needs, it's worth checking out.
