It’s been a while since I’ve shared a review of Sigma Beauty brushes, but today I am really excited to share with you my thoughts on the Sigma Beauty Ultimate Copper Eye Brush Set! I am a big fan of Sigma Beauty brushes — they’re really nice quality, hold up well with lots of uses and washes, and when you wait for a sale I personally don’t think they’re too expensive. For example, right now you can use code BRUSH30 to get 30% off your order! Score!
Sigma Beauty Ultimate Copper Eye Brush Set
All 8 brushes can typically be purchased as a set from Sigma Beauty in their “Ultimate Copper Eye Brush Set”, but at the time of posting this review it’s currently out of stock and I can’t even find the page anymore on the Sigma website! :-0 However, I do still want to share my review of these brushes because you can purchase each of them individually…and I also saw that Amazon sells a 13-peice set that appears to have all of these brushes included. Anywho, let’s dive right into the individual brush review!
My favorite pointed liner brush — this baby is so small and pointed! If you want to create that super thin winged liner that looks like it just disappears into nothing…this is the one you need! It’s the best pointed liner brush I’ve ever bought — and it holds it’s shape well! I’ve owned cheaper ones in the past, but the bristes always start to fan out and get fatter after so many washes, which makes it difficult to create that super fine wing. But this E10 brush — it’ll create thin wings for years! This isn’t my all-time favorite brush from Sigma to create a wing — that one is the E06 Winged Eyeliner Brush. That one gets my highest recommendations, but if you don’t want a brush with a slanted tip…the E10 is the way to go!
This brush isn’t something you need to have if you’re a beginner in eye makeup or just want to do really easy, effortless, natural eyes. But if you are wanting to step up your game, and especially if you want to apply shadow just to right below your lower lashes…this brush is awesome! That’s what I tend to always use this brush for. ELF’s Smudge Brush is also very similar, but since I only use this type of short shader brush to place shadow right at my lower lash line, I appreciate the softer bristles of this Sigma one. The ELF one just feels like I’m taking sandpaper or a knife to my under eyes. 😛 So, if you can’t guess, I do recommend investing more money for a good brush. Gotta treat that delicate skin around the eyes well!
Another well known brush in the beauty Youtube community — the E25 brush is great for blending matte shades in a more focused area. For example, I tend to reach for this brush to blend the darker matte shades onto my outer corner and up into my crease. The tapered edges really helps the blending process and makes it very easy and effortless. Definitely a brush you need to have in your eye makeup brush collection if you’re wanting to achieve those smokey eyes.
A good pencil brush is a must for smoking out the lower lash line or using to apply dark matte shadows and keep it in one specific spot. Because of where you tend to use this brush — right next to your eye on your lower lash line — I do recommend you invest in a good brush. I can’t tell you how many cheaper pencil brushes I have been through that just feel like they’re scratching that tender skin when I use it. But this Sigma Beauty brush is lovely! Not scratchy or stiff at all and gets the job done well. Highly recommend!
This brush was a new one I’ve never tried before…but I do love having it now! It’s very similar to the E40, but more tapered. I’ve found that it’s great to use to apply color to the crease and give it a gentle blend. Reminds me of my favorite #105 Airbrush Blending Crease Brush. Yes, they look differently…but they perform similarly. So…depending on which one you can get at a better price (Sigma often have sales) you really only need one or the other.
I feel like this was the brush you always heard Youtubers rave about back in the day — the E40 brush was always the brush you needed. Now, while the E40 brush is still a great, staple brush to have to do your eye makeup…Sigma did change the way this brush is designed…which is such a big bummer! I have one of the O.G. and absolutely love it! It’s so fluffy and perfect for blending together shades, especially in your crease. It’s more dense/narrow now, but it still is a nice brush to own and use in the same way…it just used to be better, lol. If you are just getting into doing your eye makeup, definitely consider getting a brush like this — it’ll help you blend out the edges of your eye looks and help you get that seamless gradient look. If Sigma Beauty ever went back to their original design of this brush….I’d be over the moon!
If you have smaller eyes, than this is a brush you need to have in your makeup brush collection! I see most people use this to run shadow under their eye, but I love to use it to blend matte eyeshadow into my outer corner and deepen up a look. Because it’s small and pointed it does a great job of keeping the shadow only where I want it. This is a brush I’ve purchased multiple ones of in the past because I love having more than one so I can still use this brush if one is dirty — so I am thrilled to have one more to add to my brush cup holder!
I really love this brush – it’s the ideal type to use to pack eyeshadow onto the lid — it’s nicely dense with a little taper to the sides, so it holds onto shadow well. I will say, though, that this brush is super similar to the $1 ELF Eyeshadow brush. And since this isn’t a brush you really use for blending, just to pack on shimmer or color, I don’t think it’s a must have you should splurge on from Sigma — at least not as much as the other brushes we’ve already talked about above. It’s is a great brush, though, that will last you years and it feels nicer/less-stratchy than the ELF. So it depends on what you want for your flat shader brush!
In Short: I recommend This Set!
So yeah, those are all my thoughts on these brushes — I think they’re all fantastic, so if you can purchase it as a bundle (on sale, even better) it will definitely save you some money and have you set for a well-rounded eye look no matter if it’s every day, all matte, or super vampy and smokey! If you want to see a demonstration of all these brushes…here’s a look I did recently where I used all the brushes from the Ultimate Copper Eye Brush Set!!
