Makeup brushes are a personal favorite of mine. Maybe not as exciting as a new eyeshadow palette (those are definitely my favorite) but I get an exciting thrill every time I get a new makeup brush. Especially eyeliner brushes! You know I love to do a sharp wing! 🙂 If you’ve been curious about the quality of Sigma Brushes…keep reading!
About Sigma Beauty’s E05 Brush
I received this pink mini-size of the Sigma E05 brush when I joined their Pro program earlier this year. It’s the first brush I’ve ever tried from them and since I’m a fanatic when it comes to winging out my eyeliner, I thought it was totally appropriate. 🙂 I’ve been using it for months now and while it is not my favorite brush to do my wings, it is a great, well-made brush.
The brush itself is shorter than the size of the normal E05 brush that you would receive when purchasing this brush from them — it would be the normal, typical size of all Sigma brushes. I love the iridescent design of the lettering on this brush, it’s beautiful. 🙂 The tip of the brush tapers to a very fine point. Not as fine as my all-time favorite 706 Bdellium Tools brush, but it does taper off to a nice point.
The brush is somewhat ‘fat’ for a liner brush, in my opinion, but I was actually surprised to discover that it’s pretty easy to get a nice, pointed wing. In the swatch samples below, I just used Rimmel’s Scandal Eyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner to show you the difference in the line that you can get with this brush.
As you can see you can achieve a pretty fine and tapered line, or very fat and bold. It takes a bit more care and concentration to keep the line very fine, as you would imagine, but still totally possible.
I’ve washed this brush multiple times, after each use, and have never noticed any shedding or loosening of the bristles. Everything is still as tight and pointy as the day I received it. The only con I can see with this brush is the price. At $14, it’s definitely not cheap….but it’s still more affordable than other high-end brushes, I suppose. It just all depends on how much you are comfortable with spending.
As I said, this is only my first brush from Sigma Beauty, but it definitely won’t be my last! How about you? What’s your favorite Sigma Beauty brush? Give me recommendations! 🙂
