Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush Review and GIVEAWAY [CLOSED]

I have a very exciting post today, a review of the Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush AND a giveaway for one of you! This is actually my first blog giveaway so I am so excited to give back to you wonderful readers. I have heard about the Sigma F80 brush from many Youtubers raving about it. When I was given the opportunity to try the brush and potentially do a giveaway with one, I jumped at the chance! I not only knew that I wanted to try this raved about product, but the fact that I could do a giveaway sealed the deal. Now that I have had about 2 months to try it, here's my verdict: I LOVE IT! Stay tuned for the giveaway further down!

I have been using the F80 with my NARS Sheer Glow foundation. I was previously only using my fingers for this foundation. After using this brush for the first time, I found that it is quicker to use my hands and that the brush takes a bit more time. However, the brush gave a bit of a more natural look with the foundation.After the first few times  It did not soak up any of the product as some brushes might do. The edges of the brush are also great for precise areas of the face like around my nose. If I wanted to add concealer to any blemishes, I patted it in with the brush and it worked great!

I use this brush with a downward motion mainly. I dot on the foundation throughout my face and then use the brush to blend it in. The flexiblility of the brush also allows me to easily spread it down my jawline to blend the color down. I also found this brush worked better at applying the foundation to my forehead than my fingers. I have combination/oily skin and my forehead gets dry. The F80 helped the foundation glide along the dry skin without catching on any dryness.

Pictures:

Behold the magical foundation brush!

Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki - F80
I have been keeping this brush in my on the go makeup bag and usually the MAC brush label would have started to wear off, but this one is intact! Also, it is synthetic hair, which is great for those of you that do not prefer to use animal hair brushes.

This is what the actual brush looks like. It is dark haired mostly and then white on top. Usually it is white but mine has gotten lots of use!

It is a pretty dense brush without being too dense. It has a perfect amount of give without being floppy.

The face brush also comes with a brush guard which I have been loving. Since it has been in my on the go makeup bag, the brush guard has helped it retain its shape and not get squashed by the other products in the bag.

You can purchase this brush through Sigma Beauty for $16.

Sigma was generous enough to also offer one for a giveaway for one of you guys to win the F80 brush. After I tried the brush and fell in love with it, I HAD to do one! I knew there was an option to do a giveaway when I got the brush but I had to make sure I liked it first. Now that I love the brush, I absolutely want to do a giveaway with it!
