I've had my eye on this brush for some time but really wanted the hardware in the rose gold shade. Lucky me Sigma recently released a 5th anniversary special edition rose-gold F80. Not only did the brush shed a couple of hairs as I played around with it on the back of my hand, but it sheds a hair or two (sometimes 3) every time I use it. This is very annoying as I then have to disrupt my foundation application in order to remove the stray hair(s). The brush is also difficult to thoroughly clean.
My All Time Favorite
I will probably never go back to any other brush! Does such a great job blending and giving me even coverage and it is so so soft. I love how great of quality it is at such a reasonable price. I've had it for a while now and have had no problems with shedding or wear. I recommend cleaning it once a week because product can get in deep, but it's quick to clean and is good as new once it's dry!
love this brush, I brought it in 2010 and when I deep clean it looks brand new again. It blends foundation perfectly. the brush is super soft and it retails for $21 dollars and it is completely worth it. I would recommend to buy the whole sigmax kabuki kit for $84 dollars
One thing I did realize is that it is not ideal to place liquid foundation directly on the brush. It is better to put some on the back of your hand and dab it all around the face because they liquid foundation sinks to the bottom of the brush, making it very dirty and difficult to clean. I would definitely repurchase if something goes bad with my brush.
AH MAY ZING
I use this brush to apply my kat von d lock it foundation. First I dab the foundation all over with my finger and then I go in with my brush and blend it out, it looks so beautiful and full coverage, but not cakey at all! I would recommend this brush to any one, plus it's super soft!
Favourite. Hands down.
Best brush for my liquid foundation. Bought three; one for my personal use and two for clients. Blends seamlessly and effortlessly with buffing and stippling motions. For my clients, I use a stippling motion so I don't disrupt the dry skin, and for my skin I like to buff to really get the foundation blended. Gave the most natural and well blended look ever. Good sturdy handle, great size. I would have to say to clean it often as product build up collects quick in the brush and it is horrible to try and deep clean it out!
Best for foundation application
This is the best brush I've ever used to apply foundation. Sigma brushes are very good qaulity and this does not disappoint. It buffs foundation in so that it doesn't look like your wearing in. I find it work best if you use it in small circular motions or stipple. Very good!
