Sigma Beauty is a well known brand in the makeup community that’s supposed to have high quality brushes at more affordable prices. I finally took the plunge a couple months ago and purchased several brushes. This post is far overdue, but I haven’t been able to post it till now. But at least you know I’ve had plenty of time to thoroughly test out all the brushes!
The two brushes I specifically wanted to try were the E06 and E40 brushes. I hear everyone raving about how amazing the E40 is, and wanted to give it a try. And then I saw Laura Lee use the E06 in a video — and if you follow her you KNOW her wings are always on point! — so I had to get it and see if it was the secret to her awesome, sharp wings.
Did the Sigma Beauty brushes live up to my expectations?

Sigma Beauty Brushes
Tapered Blending E40 | Retail: $17 | Getting a good eyelook relies a lot on the brush you use to help blend the colors. This brush works very well for that. It’s not as dense/full as I imagined it would be, but it still does a beautiful job of blending my crease colors. I personally don’t have a ‘holy grail’ that I love over my other blending brushes, but really like this one.
Tapered Highlighter F35 | Retail: $25 | With the highlight trend seeming to be here to stay, I figured it was time to get a good highlighting brush to help me step up my game in that department. I own a fan brush, but wasn’t a particular fan of it (Ha, pun unintended! 😛 ). This small, tapered face brush does the trick. I like it, and since I only own one other highlighter brush besides this, this is the one I reach or.
Winged Liner E06 | Retail: $15 | As I already mentioned, these were the brushes I was most eager to try. And I was so confident in Laura Lee’s recommendations, I bought two. Because if you do winged liner on the daily…you know it’s nice to have lots of brushes clean and at the ready! I won’t drag this out too long….I LOVE them! They quickly replaced my old top favorite and I use them every time one is clean. They are very small, thin, and I find it incredibly easy to get a very precise, sharp wing. The kind of wing that seems to just fade away to nothing at the tip. I highly, highly recommend!
Small Tapered Blending E45 | Retail: $16 | I got this brush on a whim — I’m always on the search for the best blending brushes, and this one looked perfect for doing detailed blending right into the crease. You can really create that soft cut crease with this type of brush. The bristles on this brush — and all the ones that I bought — is really full and nicely packed. And I didn’t notice any shedding, which was great!
Blending E25 | Retail: $16 | I was sent this brush as a freebie because my order was over a certain amount. It’s a travel size of the regular E25 brush. I was curious about this brush, too, so was glad to get it for free in my order! I don’t know why I don’t use this type of blending brush more often, but I don’t notice myself reaching for this as much. It’s a great brush, though. Maybe not the softest brush, but blends beautifully!
Sigma Beauty Affiliate Welcome Package
So after I purchased — and loved — these brushes, I decided to sign up for Sigma Beauty’s affiliate program. And to my surprise, when you are approved as an affiliate for Sigma Beauty they send you a welcome package. I’ve never been apart of an affiliate program that’s done this — it was so sweet and thoughtful! Ready for reviews on all of them? 😉
Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleaning Glove | Retail: $25 | This was the largest thing in the box, so let’s talk about it first. It’s a type of glove brush cleaner and I was so thrilled to receive this in my welcome package. I had been wanting to get a good cleaning pad for a while, so I put this baby to use right away….and have continued to use it every time since. It works fantastic to clean both my face and eye brushes (one side is designed for face and the other for eye brushes. The only down side is that you only have one hand free, so it can take a little getting used that. But it’s still a fantastic product.3DHD Kabuki | Retail: $24 | A twist on the original flat top F80, this one is supposed to give you a more natural, skin-like appearance to your foundation application. Make it look 3D. And I love it! Its denser than I imagined, but I always love the results that I get when I use this brush!
3DHD Precision Brush | Retail: $20 | I love the cut of this concealer brush! Really makes it easy to get into the crevices of my face and blend out my under eye concealer RIGHT below my lash line. If you can find it…I recommend it!
Buff & Blend E39 | Retail: $16 | I LOVE this brush! I didn’t realize how AWESOME a brush like this is, until I got it. It makes doing a quick smokey eye SO easy! I featured it in this easy daytime smokey eye and show you how to use it to give your eye looks the most seamless blend. Love, love, love it! I highly recommend you get it, and it’s soft, for being such a densely packed brush!
Medium Sweeper E54 | Retail: $14 | This is my go-to brush for applying shadow to the center of my eyelid. It works great, and I love how it’s more of a narrow flat shader brush, compared to others I own. Making it really easy to pack shadow onto my eyes exactly where I want it. I like it, and plan to get another one!
Powder Blush in Heavenly | Retail: $12 | This is a matte nude-peachy-pink blush that is my PERFECT type of blush color. I love it so much — even featured it in a monthly favorites last year. I forgot about it recently with a bunch of new blushes I reviewed, but I just pulled it out again and rediscovered my love for it! It’s nicely pigmented — not too much, but builds up beautifully. Very nice!
Eyeshadow in Notre Dame | Retail: $11 | This eyeshadow is SO unique and I just love it! It’s a purple color…yet it has this silver and gold glitter shift that just does so much — in person, at least. I tried my best to capture it on camera (below) but trust me when I say it just doesn’t to it justice! I love wearing this shade.
Lip Base Makeup in Rhapsody | Retail: $12 | I liked the deep color of this pencil (I don’t own many) and while it works fine as a lip liner, it’s too patchy when I try to fill in my lips with it. It’s a nice color, though, and in the picture below I topped it with some clear gloss and liked the results. Just beware if you have dry patches on your lips — this dark color points them out BAD!
And there you have it — a run down of a bunch of Sigma Beauty products. I know this was a lengthy post, even for me, but I am hoping it is helpful for you if you’re considering purchasing from them. I am really pleased with all the brushes I got — not really any duds at all. And their eyeshadows and blush was surprisingly great — I wasn’t expecting to love them as much as I do!
Have you tried any other Sigma Beauty brushes from them? Let me know what you’ve tried and loved! I want to make another order soon (for more E06 brushes! 😉 ) and would love to try something new!

Those brushes look really amazing. I really think good blending brushes are the thing that separates an okay eye look from a really amazing one. I’m so intrigued with that brush cleaning glove. I’m definitely going to have to check out this brand!
Never Say Die Beauty says
The brushes look and sound wonderful, and your wings are definitely on point! I really need the brush cleaning glove
Love the look you created! I have quite a few Sigma brushes and I’m pretty obsessed. Great post!
I’m so impressed about their affiliate package. Their brushes are hit or miss for me but I do love that winged eyeliner brush. I have a more expensive one from IT Cosmetics so this would be a great alternative.
There are so many Sigma brushes that people rave about… I think I need to make an order!
Emily Draher says
What a fun post!! I really need to get a cleaning glove like that for my brushes 🙂
I need to make a sigma order eventually.
Jenne - Polished Pathology says
Oh those angled ones look amazing, I need to make an order!
LOVE Sigma brushes, I actually have a ton in my makeup case for when I assist a friend whom is a makeup artist. The price point is fantastic, and they don’t lose bristles. They do a great job and the variety is fantastic. Excellent review to bring more light to Sigma. I think they are underappreciated.
