A Sincere but Light-Hearted Mission To Make More of Myself!

Just delivered!

Just delivered!

Look what was just delivered last Friday and it wasn’t even a birthday gift!

Sigma, yayyy. Let’s open it up. . .

Oohhhhh and look what else I got?  These little extras (below) were freebies that I was not expecting.

A travel brush for eyes, SS217, and a very useful grey eyeshadow in the cutest little package.

Wow, can I just say that I am very impressed? I paid for standard delivery and they arrived within a fortnight carefully wrapped in the prettiest little bag AND as well as the brushes that can do no wrong, the free brush and the free shadow. There was also beautifully illustrated instructions so that newbies like me, not as familar with all this make up marlarkey, has all of the help possible to paint their face beautiful.

Now I know there is lots of information out there on Sigma. If you want to know more, just search Sigma brushes on You Tube and there will be plenty of videos to pick from and I’m sure if you do the same in Google or something, plenty of blog posts will come up. If you would like me to do a review, I will but you probably all have your own set already and if you haven’t then you might be better off watching/reading a review of someone who knows a little more about the technicalities of make up. However, I will leave it up to you and if you want me to have a go then I will.

For what it is worth, I will tell you now that I’m officially in love with SS219. I can finally do eyeliner (sort of), whoop and I finally understand why people say that brushes really do make a difference. You may also be interested to know that it was the 12 piece professional brush set without the brush roll that I purchased.

So what brushes do you girlies own? What brushes do you want? What do you think of Sigma? Am I just another victim of hype? Don’t forget I love to read your comments and as you should know by now, you are more then welcome to subscribe to my blog and you may well then be able to enter my competiton. See the competition post for more details.

    • No problem! :-) Wow, MAC. They are meant to be the holy grail of brushes, I have never been lucky enough to own one though. I think the Sigma brushes are numbered the same as MAC and are meant to be cheaper dupes. A lot of the videos on You Tube talk about this. Thanks for the comment :-)

  2. You are so lucky that you got all of them for free! There are plenty of good reviews about them.If you do one, it’ll be twice as great! I use body shop brushes; though I’ve got 1 eye brush and a cheek brush. They are pretty pricey, thats why i’m actually thinking of entering competitions like MAC and see if I can win their brushes :)

    • Oh no, that might have come across wrong. I paid for the professional set of 12. It was the travel eye brush that was free and the shadow. It seems a few of you have the Body Shop brushes, I might have to look in to this. Really want some MAC brushes too. Love Sigma but just want to see if they really are as good as the MAC ones that everybody raves about. Never 100% satisfied, am I?;-)

  3. oops my bad! Body shop brushes aren’t that bad. *smiles* It’s a girls nature to not be 100% satisfied. We always must find the perfect stuff! :P
