Sigma Beauty Sigmax Kabuki Kit - Review

You can have the most expensive high end makeup, but if your application tool isn't up to par, then the quality of your makeup won't shine through.

Before the holidays I purchased the Sigma Sigmax Kabuki Kit brush set.  This set includes 5 kabuki face brushes that aid in flawless makeup application.

This is how the package arrives.  There's almost always a free gift with purchase with Sigma and for this order I received a small shader brush.

From Sigma:
The Sigma Beauty Sigmax® Kabuki Kit contains five face brushes that allow for a high definition, flawless makeup application. The brushes in this kit feature exclusive Sigmax® fibers, uniquely designed to apply powder, cream and liquid products without absorption into the bristles.

Brushes Included:


F80 - Flat Kabuki™: Application of liquid or cream products to flat areas of the face such as the forehead and cheeks.

F82 - Round Kabuki™: Blend mineral products onto the skin.

F84 - Angled Kabuki™: Buff cream blush or bronzer onto the skin.

F86 - Tapered Kabuki™: Apply cream and liquid foundations onto the harder to reach contours of the face.

F88 - Flat Angled Kabuki™: Blends foundation easily onto hard to reach areas of the face. Angle fits all areas of the face seamlessly. Works especially well on cheekbones and contours of the nose.

These were my very first Sigma brushes, actually they were my very first "high end" face brushes.  I'd seen them boasted about in the online beauty community but to be honest, I always thought, "how can a brush make that much of a difference in my makeup application?".  Well...I've come to find that these brushes make a world of difference in makeup application!  Please believe me when I tell you that these brushes feel as soft as velvet.  The first thing I did when I opened the package was run my fingers on the bristles and brushed them on my face.

I use the F80 flat kabuki and the F88 flat angled kabuki for liquid foundation application.  I love them both for liquid foundation application but I do prefer the angled one a little more.  Because of the angle, it's a bit easier to get into spaces such as the sides of my nose.  Since incorporating these brushes into my foundation routine, I've gotten quite a few "your skin looks air-brushed" compliments!

I love the F86 pointed tip tapered kabuki brush to blend out my under eye concealer.  Jaclyn Hill used to use this brush for her concealer in her videos and it works really well.  I use it to blend out the concealer and then use a smaller angled brush such as the P84 to make sure there's no streaks under my eyes.

The F82 round kabuki brush works well for foundation also.  I like to use the F84 round angled kabuki for applying bronzer for contouring or to dab on blush.

Overall, I'm beyond happy that I purchased the Sigmax Kabuki Kit brush set!  I really couldn't believe that a brush could improve the look of my makeup THIS much.  My favorite and most used brushes of the set are the F80, F86, and F88.  Individually, the brushes in this kit retail for $24.  This brush set sells for $90 so if you get the set, that is a savings of $35 which means you get a free brush.  But there's always a 10% coupon code and the current code is SIGMA2017.  Using this code brings the price of the kit down to $81 which means that's about $16/brush which is amazing!  Even some very popular drugstore brushes are more expensive than that.

If you read my previous post on Sigma, you will know that I'm an affiliate.  As I stated in this post, I used my own money for these brushes, this is how much I love them.   And I have many more brushes on my shopping list, as well as some makeup items and the brush cleansing mat!

What is your favorite makeup brush?
