Here are the products in detail…
SIGMA F88 FLAT ANGLED KABUKI – $24
Sigma Beauty brushes are included among the best makeup brushes. The F88 is a foundation brush. It is extremely dense and plush with really closely packed bristles and feels so very soft when applying foundation onto the face. The flat top is especially helpful in buffing the foundation to blur out lines and blend it evenly to give an air-brushed look while the angle of the brush makes it easy to blend the foundation in areas like the the inner corners of the eyes and around the nose.
The brush is extremely soft and plush and blends makeup really easily. The long handle and the thick ferrule make it easy to grip and a delight to use. Though I normally prefer to use my fingers to apply foundation, since I felt brushes were too time consuming, I’m loving this brush and use it each time I apply foundation.
SIGMA E55 EYE SHADING BRUSH – $14
The E55 Eye Shading brush, as the name implies, is a brush meant for applying powder eyeshadow on the eyelid. The brush head is squarish with rounded edges and it helps in depositing colour on the eyelid. Since it is thick and wide, it can’t really be used for the crease but for all over lid colour, this is great. As with the F88, this brush too, is really soft and it’s dense bristles pick up a good amount of product which makes eyeshadow application easier and faster.
SIGMA EYESHADOW in TRIOMPHE – $11

I was so sad to see the condition of this eyeshadow. This beautiful eyeshadow came totally broken. I will have to try and fix it somehow because the colour is really lovely as you’ll see in the swatch. The colour is a pewter but with a purple-green duo chrome effect and looks beautiful while applied in several layers. I have applied just a single layer in my FOTD because I didn’t want a very dark smoky look. The texture is really soft and silky, in fact, I’d say it’s comparable to my favourite Lancome eyeshadows in terms of texture and pigmentation. Because of the lovely texture, blending is a dream and there is hardly any fall out!
SIGMA LIP BASE in INDULGENT- $12
The Lip Base is actually Sigma’s range of thick lip pencils. I usually dislike lip pencils because they just feel so dry and tug at the lips but this one is surprisingly smooth. I wasn’t able to capture the colour accurately and though it looks dark brown in the picture, it is actually a pink-based MLBB (my lips but better) shade. It gives a totally opaque look even on pigmented lips and those with fair to medium skintones can even wear this as a matte lipstick. It would wash out darker skin tones though.
Since it gives an opaque look, it is great for layering under lipglosses and other lipsticks too. Oh, and it’s paraben-free!
SIGMA LIP VEX in ALL HEART
The Lip Vex is Sigma’s collection of creamy lip glosses with an opaque finish. The shade All Heart is a sheer chocolate brown that just barely shows up on my pigmented lips. Layered over the Lip Base, however, it gives a beautiful glossy MLBB look that is perfect for work or even party when paired with a smoky eye. The Lip Vex too, is paraben – free.
These are the swatches of the eyeshadow, Triomphe, the Lip Base, Indulgent and the Lip Vex, All Heart. And here’s how they look on me….
SIGMA SPA BRUSH CLEANING GLOVE
(Buy it here)
A unique innovation from Sigma, the Spa Brush Cleaning Glove is a specially designed glove, made from silicone, for thoroughly cleaning makeup brushes. It has various textures and surfaces to effectively remove all residue of makeup and give the brushes a deep cleanse. I have received a small sample of the glove just to give an idea of the texture of the full-sized one. I haven’t used this yet but am surely going to when I wash all my brushes.
