Sigma F-80 Flat Kabuki
Today I’m reviewing the Sigma F-80 Flat Kabuki. It is said to be one of the best brushes for blending in foundation into the skin, giving you an airbrushed, flawless look. One can never stress enough on the importance of good make-up brushes, and this belief just gets strengthened when you use a good quality brush yourself, and realize how much better it is than the ones you were using before actually discovering this new product. Scroll down to know why I like the Sigma F-80 Flat Kabuki a LOT! Yes, the verdict is out already, I love this brush! Read on!
About Sigma F-80 Flat Kabuki:
Packaging: The brush comes in a simple envelope-like packaging. Since these need to be imported from the U.S., the brushes come securely packed in cardboard boxes. No damages there.
My take on Sigma F-80 Flat Kabuki: Oh well, where do I start raving about this brush? It is super soft to feel, does not shed, does not drink up the foundation, and blends it into the skin like a dream. The bristles are very densely packed, so the brush is quite sturdy in terms of what happens to a brush when it comes in contact with the skin. Most brushes’ bristles bend away, but nothing of that sort with this one. I mean, what more do you want from a kabuki?
The brush has a fatty, medium-long black handle, which makes it comfortable to grip.
I use this brush with the liquid foundations or cream foundations, and use it to apply and blend the foundation. It gives a non-streaky, flawless, air-brushed finish to the foundation. It is a Vegan brush (no animal hair), so it does not make one feel guilty too.
I have washed this brush quite a few times, and it has never shed a single bristle. But when I wash it, I leave it to dry over-night so that it completely dries on the inside, since it’s a very dense brush. So I wash it in the evening, and it is ready to use again the next morning.
The only down-side with Sigma brushes is the fact that these are not available in India, so they need to be ordered online. You need to pay shipping charges and customs duty, depending on where you live. Order a bunch of brushes together so that you get good value for money!
