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!
