Sigma Travel Brush Kit Review + Giveaway


Sorry guys I know I promised this giveaway last week but I'm trying to spread all these giveaway posts out before I completely turn into a giveaway blog!

So I'm sure Sigma needs no introduction to the beauty blogging world.  It's one of those innovative companies that market their products primarily through their blog and YouTube affiliates.  A very smart form of advertising that I think more companies should get involved in!  They are known for their quality and affordable brushes and are often compared to MAC.

For this review, Sigma sent me their Travel Kit in "Naughty In Black".  The very first thing I noticed upon opening up this brush set was the size!  Being a travel set, I expected short handles and small brushes, but without directly comparing these to Sigma's other sets, they could easily be mistaken for full size brushes.  The face brushes come with 5 inch handles while the concealer and eye brushes have 4 inch handles.


This kit is perfect for those who travel frequently and need good sized basic essential brushes.  It would also make a perfect starter set for those new to make-up brushes.

There are seven brushes, five with natural hair bristles, while the foundation and concealer brushes have synthetic bristles for better application.  This set also includes a free Duo Fibre F50 Brush which contains a blend of synthetic and natural bristles.

Brushes in this kit:
Duo Fiber - F50 - Specially designed to generate an airbrushed finish when used to apply liquid foundation.  It can also be used to apply blush, highlight shades, and loose pigments.  Blend of synthetic and natural bristles.
Pencil - E30 - Precise application of color on the crease, outer corner, and upper and lower lash line. Also ideal to smudge out pencil liner. Natural bristles. 
Tapered Blending - E40 - Rounded and tapered top. Specially designed to apply and blend color on the crease. Natural bristles.
Eye Shading - E55 - Soft and dense with a rounded finish. Can be used to apply pressed or loose eye shadows and pigments. Ideal to build intense color on the eyelid. Natural bristles.
Large Powder - F30 - Very dense with a rounded top. Ideal to apply powder products on face and body. Natural bristles. 
Large Angled Contour - F40 - The angled shape makes this brush ideal to apply blush or contour shades. Natural bristles.
Foundation - F60 - Can be used to apply liquid or cream foundation. It is also recommended to apply moisturizers and conceal large areas. Synthetic bristles.
Concealer - F70 - The rounded, tampered, flat shape makes this brush ideal to conceal the under eye area. It is also recommended for a precise application in small areas. Synthetic bristles. 

My only gripe is that the carrying clutch only contains seven slots for the seven included brushes so if you wanted to insert another brush you would have to switch one out or attempt to squeeze two into one slot.  There isn't even a spot for the F50 brush!   But I guess it's a minor detail for the overall quality kit.

The Travel Kit is currently on sale at Sigma.com for $49.00 and also comes in a cute "Nice in Pink" color!

They also offer Premium Travel Kits for the same price.  I'm not quite sure of the difference -- they include the same amount of brushes and while they have different model numbers, the kits contain similar brushes.  I guess it's just a matter of personal preference.  The Premium Kits come in hot pink, baby pink, black, and silver.  Don't forget to use code: HB2011 for 10% off your Sigma order!

So do you want one yet???!  Well fortunately Sigma is sweetly sponsoring one "Naughty In Black" Travel Kit for my readers!
