New Sigma brushes!

Guys, I made the plunge and purchased a Sigma brush kit which had been on my wishlist for yearsssss. I'm talking since 2009ish? All the OG beauty gurus raved about these brushes and of course, I needed to have them. Back then, these brush kits could be purchased for like under $100 and now they are closer to $200. Ridiculous, I know.

Well, fast forward to January, while perusing their site, you can imagine my excitement when I saw the Make Me Classy Essential Kit on major sale! I kid you not. Please see photo below.

I knew this was my time. I had to make my wishes come true and buy it.

Y'all, not only was it already on huge discount with the sale, but I also got $10 off by signing up to be on their email list. Holla! Of course, since making my purchase, I saw that they have permanently reduced the price to $125. -_- So, if you have had this kit on your wishlist as well, you can get it at the same price.

It took me a while to start using them once I received them in the mail because I really wanted to go through the brushes I had now and store away/trash the ones that would be replaced with the new brushes.

The ones that I was trashing were already trashed and not in picture.

Plus, I wanted to buy some vase fillers from Michael's to put in my brush holders. I remember that was the it thing to do back in 2009. Haha! I am just 8 years behind. NBD.

These little brush holders are actually from the Target Dollar Spot section. I got them a few years ago during Christmas time. I have seen them in various colors depending on the season.

What are my thoughts so far?

Love them! It's like having a shiny new toy. The weight of the brushes are good. I've heard beauty gurus comment about brush weight and sometimes they are hollow or too heavy. I think these are normal. I will say that they are longer than other brushes which you wouldn't think was a big deal, but it will take some getting used too. The bristles are synthetic and soft. I think the kit itself comes with a good range of brushes, but there were a few brushes that I use on the daily that were not in this kit, like a blush brush. I feel like that should be a staple in any set, so that was weird to me. I had to keep some of the brushes I already had out while I work on getting replacements for them.

Confession. I have my eyes on the Spot-On Concealer Kit - on sale for $39. I know. It's a sickness. I can't help it. I like the smaller brushes for doing my eye makeup. This may be in my hands in the near future!



  1. Such beautiful brushes! Anything is easy if you have the right tool, and I say that includes makeup. Cute way to display them. They definitely need to be shown off, and not stuffed in a bag.

    1. Thank you! I am enjoying them and like seeing them on display :)
