As you know, some time ago, I won the Sigma F80 brush at Lara's giveaway
Description from Sigma site
This exclusive flat top synthetic kabuki was designed to deliver a flawless makeup application. The Sigma Makeup F80 is a buffer brush that can be used to blend powder or liquid products. The short and dense bristles make it easy to buff your liquid foundation. The long handle adds comfort to your makeup application. The synthetic fibers are ideal to be used with liquid products and can be easily cleaned. Made of Synthetic Sigmax HD filament.
It came in a red gift pouche inside a box. There were also Sigma leaflets about their products.
My own opinion
* It's super dense yet amazingly soft.
* I've washed it 2-3 times, it didn't lose hairs or dye.
* The hairs don't absorb the liquid foundation so it's really easy to clean.
* When I apply my foundation with this the coverage is a lot better.
* Very quick to blend the foundation, speeds up the proccess.
* No brush lines when I apply the foundation with this brush.
Sigma brushes are really loved among beauty bloggers and I was like I HAVE to find a con, it can't be perfect, right? So, behold, here it is!!!
LOL!! When I received it there were 2 longer hairs. I cut it with scissors. The end. :D
Seriously, this is a really good brush, it makes foundation application really fast and easy, I'm impressed! And I have to admit that I was a little hesitant in the begining.
When I joined Lara's giveaway I commented saying that I'd love to have the chance to compare it with my regular foundation brush. And I did. And the F80 won 3-0 (for coverage, for speed and for easy cleaning!) Because my regular brush drags the product, needs more blending = more time and I need to wash it with oil (too bored to do so) or wash it 4-5 times till it's all clear.
I love it!
