SIGMA F-80 FLAT KABUKI

Hello all,

Have you ever wondered what is the secret behind the airbrushed,smooth look we see in movies , television,mags etc.Well,I use to think about it and when I discovered that it was achieved most of the time with help of a foundation brush, I scoffed at the idea.(The MUA's have scary looking air brush devices too)


I was a firm believer that when it comes to liquid foundation,your fingers are the best blenders. For some they are.However,during growth of my makeup skills ,I learned that skill and tools both have their place in achieving flawless looks.If you don't have great skills,buying the right tools will help you in achieving more than 70% of the desired look.


With this idea I ordered sigma foundation brush.Was this brush able to convert me from 
fingers to brush?Read on...

  No exaggeration,but I wanted to get my hands on this baby for almost 8 months.          




I got the brush in PKR 2250 from enhanced beauty...a facebook page.To read about my shopping experience with them follow this  link.

This is a new technology patented by sigma.The syntheitc bristels have been uniquely designed to apply powder,cream,liquid products for a flawless finish, without absorbing the makeup.


What is meant by vegan?

Vegan means free of animal products.This is important in two ways.Firstly,it means product is cruelty free.Secondly,it is halal (no pig fat or products used in manufacturing,unlike the common practice in west).

 SIGMA F-80 FLAT KABUKI


I am extremely pleased with my purchase.The brush has dense bristles,and pick up just the right amount of product,without absorbing the product.Bristles are super soft.The handle gives maximum control over application.The flat surface makes it ideal for application of foundation to cheeks,and forehead.However,as the soft bristles are really easy to maneuver, I apply the foundation to difficult areas of face with the  same ease.The final look is very smooth and air brushed.

Very low maintenance .Easy to clean.(Just put the brush in mixture of lukewarm water and shampoo.Make sure water doesn't touch the metallic ferrule.)Buying this brush is actually  an investment  in improvement of your looks.

    1. Hi,You can check just4girls.pk for it.However the price is a little more then marekt price so if you know any FB page stores ask them.They can get you the brush in lower price for sure.Over all i think 1700-2200pkr is a fair price window.Well it is better then beauty blender in the sense of longer life and easy cleaning.Here is a post on this topic:

    2. Also If you do decide on buying the brush i say go for Real Technique foundation brush.It is affordable,has superior quality,doesn't shed and has a longer life.
