Sigma F80

Like a lot of people, i like to use a brush when applying my foundation. I normally opt for my Mac 187, because it gives that 'airbrushed look' by buffing in your foundation nicely, but when i got the chance a couple of months ago to try the Sigma F80 as part of their affiliate programme, i jumped at the chance after hearing so many people rave about their brushes.

Sigma explain the product to be "a buffer brush that can be used to blend powder or liquid products" and i really agree. Initially i wasn't sure about using it for my liquid foundation, but after using it a few times, i found a way that worked and now i often pick it up before looking for my 187 brush. It blends various products so well and takes little effort. I find myself using it for not only my foundation, but powder and blush too.

I think the reason this brush is so successful is due to the density of the bristles. They're packed in so tightly yet there is still movement, so it goes where you want it to giving you that flawless feel, and because the bristles are tightly packed, your make-up doesn't get wasted. So its more on your face, and less down the drain when you wash it.

The Sigma F80 retails for $16, which works out to be around £9.50!

Do any of you already have this brush? What are your thoughts on it?


  1. ah i really want this! i wasn't sure about using a brush for my foundation but i recently tried elf's powder brush & am loooving it! i really want to try this, i didn't realise they were so cheap!x

  4. I love this brush! I'm going to purchase two more! HAHA, I also purchased the MAC 187 quite recently too but I haven't had the chance to use it yet. I'm looking forward to seeing how the F80 stands against the 187! :)
