My review of the Sigma F80

How does it work with Foundation?
I used it for the first time Yesterday & fell in love! This brush applied my foundation evenly & helped offer more coverage, because the foundation stayed on top instead of soaking into the brush. It didn't apply streaky. This brush was so easy to use on the small areas of my face (nose and under my eyes). I didn't have any shedding. I used it with my Revlon Phototeady. Since this foundation as a pump it was easy to apply it straight to the sponge and then onto my face. Super easy & quick

How does it compare to a traditional sponge/wedge?
for as long as I've been wearing makeup I always used a sponge to apply my foundation. After using my brush I realized that the sponge soaks up alot of foundation causing alot of product waste. With the brush there is no waste. My skin is very acne prone so after using my sponge once I would throw it away. That equals alot of money spent on sponges. The brush is only 16 bucks and can be washed after each use. So all in all having this brush will save me money. I won't have to worry about buying sponges & I won't waste any foundation. 

How to clean the brush:
Yesterday after doing my makeup I cleaned my brush with the Sephora brand brush cleaner & it worked really well. My brush didn't lose it's shape or softness. Came out clean & didn't really take long to dry.

  1. I LOVE this really does apply foundation great =)

  2. Miranda- I can't believe I ever lived without it lol

  3. I've never applied foundation with a brush just a sponge. I just didn't think it would work. Very interesting!

  4. I love this brush! I didn't know how i loved without it lol But I found to get the bristles really white again use a little bit of olive oil and then clean it again with Dr. Bronner's soap.

  5. Traci- It such a huge difference going from the sponge to the brush. In my opinion it's alot easier & quicker using the brush. I'm really happy I decided to get it.

    adthenshesmiled- Thank you so much for the tip :)

  6. I really want to try these brushes from Sigma.

  7. Yay I am so glad you love it just as much as me! :D
