I decided to go all out and buy the beginner’s brush kit which is called “The Essential Brush Kit” and I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprized, I’ve heard A LOT about Sigma brushes from fellow beauty bloggers and I had extremely high expectations. and they did not disappoint. The packaging and product itself screams high quality.
Here are the important details:

The Verdict: I love these brushes, I don’t even know where to start. The sleek black design, the high end packaging, the quality of the brush fibres plus the fact that they come in a set. I now have all the brushes I need to start my new makeup collection. I also love that each brush has the product number and name for ease of use. I would definitely recommend these brushes to anyone looking to invest in high quality brushes. In my humble opinion, they are better quality than my MAC brushes and also more affordable. The brushes can be bought individually or in sets, which makes them cost much less per brush than MAC brushes. They also come in a set, which MAC does not offer and you can apply online coupons (like the 20% discount code I used) which reduces the price greatly and covers some of the shipping costs.
