Today I have part II of my review of the Sigma Complete Brush Kit with Roll for you. I reviewed the face brushes here and now I’ve got the eye brushes to talk about.
As previously mentioned there are 12 brushes in this kit and out of those twelve, seven of them are for eyes. I think that’s a pretty good dispersal. There are no lip brushes here, but then again I rarely use a lip brush so I don’t think that’s really a negative. I don’t mind slipping in a lip brush if I decide to travel with this kit.
The E05 is a fine tipped pencil like brush. This one is great for eyeliner, or applying eyeshadow to a small area, like your upper or lower lash line. It’s on the more stiff side, so it’s also good with gel-like formulas. Surprisingly I didn’t have a single brush like this one in my collection, so I am really liking it.
The E30 is a small pencil brush. This is best used for applying color to the lash line, or using it for fine crease-work. It also makes a really handy smudge brush. I mainly use this for smudging. I prefer a finer tipped brush (like the E05) to apply liner to my last lines because I always feel like the line is too thick on the bottom if I use a pencil-like brush. This is on the stiffer side, so you can get fairly precise application of color with this brush.
The E40 is a tapered blending brush. This brush is really soft and feels great. It’s definitely really fluffy and that makes it good for blending out colors nicely in the crease. That’s what I use it for and I love it. I think this has replaced my really old MAC brush I always used for blending which is so old that the number on the handle is 36 and it was made in France. 🙂
The E55 is an eye shading brush. This is very dense and fairly short. It’s super soft and my favorite one of the eye brushes. This one is great for applying pressed or loose pigments to the lid in a large area. It applies a lot of color on, so if you want really saturated color in a large area this is great. Also it’s perfect for using on the brow bone for highlighting, which is what I use it for frequently.
The E60 is a large shader brush. This is soft and flat and is great for various shadows, pigments and also creamy shadows or eye primers. I admit I haven’t used this one much yet. I tend to go with different shaped brushes to apply shadows and I use my finger to apply eye primer. I do plan on using it soon though!
The E65 is a small angle brush. This is short, angled and stiff, which is perfect for filling in eyebrows or using with gel or creme products on the lash line. I prefer to use my bent angle Sonia Kashuk brush for my gel liners because I am just used to that style. However this does work really great on brows. In fact it works just as nice as my Benefit synthetic brow brush, which I think was around $30.00 (way more expensive).
The E70 is a medium angled shading brush. This is tapered with a rounded top and it’s very soft. This brush can be used for the crease, applying color on the brow bone or use on the inner corner of the eye. I have tried this on my brow bone and I liked how it fit perfectly under the arch in my eyebrow. It’s also great for that inner corner, though I frequently find myself using my fingers for that area or a rounded pencil brush like the E30.
I am loving these eye brushes as much, if not more than the face ones. I think all are very nicely made, they all felt good and worked as they said they would. A couple of them I have found have replaced some of the higher end brushes I have, which is interesting! I love this kit because it pretty much contains all the brushes I use on a day to day basis, so if I ever travel, this is definitely coming with me!
All of these eye brushes are just $9.00 each!
