Review: Sigma Make Me Up Professional Brush Kit

By  | 

Recently I have shared that I have received my professional Make Me Up kit from Sigma [read here]. Since then I have been using the kit to try on different looks and learning to use my new brushes as well. I used to have a limited set of tools and now I officially own 12 professional brushes! It was a bit confusing for me at first as I have been mixing up the other brushes for other uses. LOL. Nonetheless, my love for Sigma products just keeps growing. Their products never seize to amaze me and if I can try them all, and maybe have them all —I would! Ah…I can dream right? On to the review, Here’s a few close-up snaps of some of the brushes I have been using…

When Stacked Side by Side

Verdict: All the brush is extremely soft and compared to MAC’s brushes it a lot more affordable and yet the quality and density of the brushes are just about the same. There’s no dye running out after washing the brushes and there’s minimal change to the brush shape.

Overall: 9/10 retail price is $109 plus shipping. If you are looking for a brush kit of great quality, affordable, and worth what you’re paying for, I definitely recommend this product. You can get this 12-piece professional kit or the 7-piece travel kit. You can get this kit at sigmabeauty.com.

FTC: Sigma Beauty sponsored Make Me Up Professional Brush Kit for my honest review. I was not compensated to make this entry. I am affiliated with Sigma but in no way does it affect my review and this is 100% my honest opinion.

My name is Angela Ricardo Bethea and I am the founder and editor behind KoreanDoll.net ( and many other online publications ) ... I love the finer things in life, I'm quite a shop-a-holic and a certified jet-setter. So if I am not behind my laptop to blog, I'd probably be shopping if not traveling.
