Sigma Brushes - My thoughts

Because I've been asked to do makeup for a few brides this year, I realized I actually had to start a REAL kit! One of the biggest factors to starting a kit is, of course, BRUSHES! What is a kit without good quality brushes? Now, if you don't me very well, let me tell you, I'm HELLA broke! Just kidding! haha I'm just not rich and I don't have make-up companies sending me free things every week or two. Everything I feature here on my dinky little blog is purchased by yours truly! Of course, many people would say that I have a crap load of makeup, but seriously, I really don't think I do. My makeup collection has just been building from over the years! Trust me, I'm not in denial about this, even though makeup does seem to be my life addiction! Anywhoo, back to my point, which is that you really don't need a lot of money to buy good quality brushes. YES, I do own MAC brushes and have purchased them in the past but doesn't mean I think they're the only good quality brushes out there on the market! There are actually some awesome websites and companies that sell and manufacture high quality brushes for more than reasonable prices. Some for example would be (and I'm sure you guys have probably heard this all over YT), Crown Brush, Royal and Langnickel, Coastal Scent and of course, the infamous Sigma! As well as MANY MANY more companies/websites.

I recently bought a set from Sigma's website specifically for my kit. Before purchasing them, I did a lot of researching and read/watched a lot of reviews on the Sigma brushes! I finally felt comfortable enough to buy it trusting they were going to live up to all the raves. OH-EM-GEE! I seriously love them! They are really really great, high quality brushes and are soooo comparable to MAC brushes! (with the exception of maybe the dupe for the MAC's 187 brush). Ladies and gents, if you don't want to spend a day's work on expensive MAC brushes, I would seriously have to recommend Sigma's brushes. They're affordable, high quality, great if you're just starting out with makeup and definitely worth it! Here's the link if you wanna check it out! www.sigmabeauty.com

Everything in total cost me $77 CDN including tax and S&H. I know it sounds like a lot but, do you know how little you can buy at MAC with $77??? Very lilo! lol

Let me know if you guys know of any other websites that sell good brushes for decent prices! I'd love to hear and know about them! 

Here are some pics of how the brushes looked out of the package.

My special gift I receive from Sigma for purchasing from their website!! It's a dupe for MAC's 217!

Also, this Saturday will be my first REAL makeup gig. It's a wedding gig so keep your fingers crossed for me...I'm a little nervous! lol
