Sigma Beauty's Buffer F45 Brush - Review, Photos & Giveaway (CLOSED)

As some of you may know I'm a huge fan of Sigma brushes. I've been using their brushes for quite some time now and they are definitely a staple in my makeup routine. Some may say they are similar to MAC brushes but I think Sigma deserves credit all on its own for making great quality brushes and shouldn't really be compared to other brands. Sure there are similarities of other brushes that look the same but in my opinion Sigma truly stands out on its own. With that said I'm super excited to host yet another giveaway for my Facebook and Twitter fans out there for a chance to win Sigma's Buffer Brush!





When I think of buffer (or kabuki) brushes I think of mineral foundation. I think it's because I'm so used to seeing the Bare Escentuals infomercial with their "swirl, tap, and buff" slogan. However, Sigma's buffer brush is great for many uses other than for applying mineral foundation. I've used this brush for setting my foundation with loose setting powder and for touching up my face with pressed powder. This brush is definitely great for an all-over-the-face powder brush and it's great for taking with you on the go for doing touch ups. The brush itself is fairly large and fluffy with natural bristles so I see it more as a powder brush over anything else though I don't see why you can't use it for blush or bronzer!
To purchase this brush click here ($19.00 USD).
