Sigma brushes help

hi all!

I would to ask if anybody know about the differences of these Sigma brush kits:

1. Mrs Bunny Essential kit   

2. Mr Bunny Essential kit

2. Make me Cool Essential kit

3. and Essential Kit

 

the essential kit is the cheapest price they have.

Are they just different colors? or they have different type of brush hair?

and what does "Sigmax" mean?

 

Thank you in advance!

Re: Sigma brushes help

The Mr/Mrs Bunny sets just have vegan bristles. The Mr Bunny set has black handles and the Mrs Bunny set has light blue handles. The Make Me Cool and Essential sets include the same brushes, except the Make Me Cool set has blue handles instead of black handles. 

Re: Sigma brushes help

ohh ok... Thank You!

are Vegan brushes better on applying makeup?
and do you think Sigma brushes are worth it?

 

because I saw these on a website, the Sedona brushes, after looking at Sigma and now I am so confused LOL

 

*sorry for all the questions Smiley Happy

Re: Sigma brushes help

Vegan brushes are available for anyone who is vegan. I haven't tried them, but I don't think it's better or worse than natural or synthetic bristles. They should perform the same. I honestly think Sigma brushes are OK. They're not the best, but they're not the worst. They're great if you want good quality brushes for a somewhat low price. I honestly think Sigma brushes are over-hyped by YouTubers and bloggers. I would invest in MAC Brushes because they last for a really long time, they're manufactured better, and easier to get than Sigma. 

 

OH and Sigmax is their fancy term for synthetic bristles. Smiley Happy

Re: Sigma brushes help

lol I was googling what 'Sigmax' mean and cant find it.

made me sing "So, Sassy!" (from grav3yardgirl) when you told me it is just a fancy term lol

 

Re: Sigma brushes help

I received the Mrs. Bunny set as a birthday gift last year and I love it. I think they are great quality for the price. I love the Sigmax brushes. I have several that I ordered to complement my brush set :-) MAC brushes are nice but they are pricey. And it can take a long time to complete a full set if money is an issue. I do however recommend every girl have a MAC 217. 

Re: Sigma brushes help

So you got the pretty pink & blue handles? Lucky!!! Smiley Happy love that color

But now it shows silver & blue color handles on their website.

I was looking at the Travel kit, then I saw a youtube video that it was kinda small.

well, duh it's a travel kit. lol. I like the tall brushes.

 

and you are right! I need that MAC 217! Smiley Happy

Re: Sigma brushes help

No I have the blue handles with silver. They switched it right when my sister ordered it for me lol. 

Re: Sigma brushes help

I just bought the Jaclyn Hill Expert beauty box which is cheaper than the sets you mentioned, at around $90. I have a ten percent off code if you want it, PM me!

 

Heres the one I bought. I literally just got it today so I will let you know what I think! They all feel amazingly soft though. (The pink eyeliner brush on the end was free with $30 purchase in April)

 

Re: Sigma brushes help

So pretty! I am going to look at this one too! Thank you!

Oh yeah, I read that somewhere (some blog I think) that they are having the 10% coupon until the end of April.

 

Did they ship fast?

Re: Sigma brushes help

Yeah it wasn't bad. I used the cheapest shipping option, shipping to the East coast of the US. Idk if it's with all the sets or just this one, they had a disclaimer on it that there were a large volume being ordered so it was going to take longer to process. Ordered Monday, shipped Thurs, arrived today. I think it cost around $5 to ship.

Re: Sigma brushes help

Alright only used two today because I did a quick out-the-door makeup and no full out foundation routine. But so far I really like the tapered blending (black bristles, 3rd from left), it was super soft! The eyeliner brush was good too (pink handle, far left), I just wish it could get me a super precise point like my KVD tattoo liner. I'm just picky! But it worked really well with my Makeup Geek gel liner. I'll try to use the face brushes tm.

Re: Sigma brushes help

Update: I definitely would recommend this kit.

 

Obsessssssed with the eye brushes. I've needed quality eyeshadow brushes/blending brushes for a long time. These are unbelievably soft and I've gotta say my eyeshadow today has NEVER looked better. The face ones I've only used once, but they were pretty good. I'm still partial to my beauty blender but I'll try it out with different foundations and see if they seem to be better with certain types. 

 

 

Re: Sigma brushes help

Thank you for this update! I made the purchase last night! Yay!

But I didn't get any email yet, just the confirmation Smiley Happy

 

I have been looking for a good blending brush for a very long time, as soon as you mentioned 'blending' I went to the Sigma website and purchased it.

I'm so excited!

Re: Sigma brushes help

yay!!!  Mine took a few days to process so that's normal. wonder if you'll get the free travel eyeliner brush or travel blending brush with your order. Then you'll have two blending brushes Smiley Happy

 

let me know what you think!

Re: Sigma brushes help

JACLYN10 works for 10 percent off still on anything. I just used it the other day if you decide to buy something. Smiley Happy 

 

 

Re: Sigma brushes help

thank you!!! Smiley Happy

Re: Sigma brushes help

sigma's "make me" sets are all essentially the same brushes, just with different colored handles. the mr/mrs bunny sets have sigmax hd filament which means they are supposed to not absorb any product into the bristles so you get more product on your face instead of the brushes. the sigmax brushes are claimed to provide better high definition results. the essential kit includes the same brushes that are seen in the other sets but it doesn't come with the brush container/holder. 

 

i purchased the mr bunny set because i was purchasing the kabuki kit and they matched together. i also own the chrome set with 29 brushes and i don't think there's a big difference between the regular brushes and the sigmax brushes.

 

if i were you i would honestly get the essential kit ($139) or if you had an extra money i would get the premium kit ($189). jaclyn hill's brush set ($90) is a really good deal as well since you get your brush essentials, and that F80 brush is seriously hands down the best.

Re: Sigma brushes help

Thank you so much for all this info!

this is really helpful. 

I might get the one with the container, it is really a nice storage for brushes.

and I have a cat that sniffs and puts his nose on my brushes when Im not home. 

I see a nose print shape on my large powder brush, everytime! Lol Smiley Happy

 

Re: Sigma brushes help

I agree with mpolansky. Jaclyn Hill's set is a FANTASTIC set and the price is extremely justifiable. It was my first "big girl brush kit" purchase (before this I was using ecotools that were like $5 for the pack from target...) and I have to say that spending the extra money is so worth it. Sigma's brushes apply your make up beautifully and give you an airbrushed finish and they LAST. I have washed them a fair amount (1-2 times a week depending on how often I do a full face of make up) and not one single hair has fallen out. It's amazing. So yeah, the Jaclyn Hill set is 100% worth it. 

Re: Sigma brushes help

Thank you, mldavidson! I purchased the Jaclyn Hill set last night! Smiley Happy

This is my first 'big girl' brush kit too.

I am so excited! I keep checking my email to get it shipped. Smiley Happy

Re: Sigma brushes help

ahhh yay i'm so excited for you!!! let us know how it turns out! Smiley Happy 

Re: Sigma brushes help

I love sigma brushes! I mainly only use their brushes for applying my foundation and concealer, especially the F80 which is my favorite out of all the brushes I own. If you sign up for their newsletters on their website, they send you updates on new products, sales, etc. but the best part of it all is if you include your birthday, they email you a 20% off code to use as a birthday present! ;D

Re: Sigma brushes help

*Update: Yay!!! Just want to update and share you guys which brush kit I end up getting.

I finally got the Sigma brushes! So happy.

Hubby surprised me with the Mrs Bunny set when he came home (as a mother's day gift).

And the Jaclyn Hill Brush set I purchased came today in the mail!

Re: Sigma brushes help

Can't wait to hear what you think. I'm very curious about Sigma.
