The Sigma Flat Top Kabuki : Brush Crush!

by mehak on February 28, 2011

Whats making my heart skip a beat these days (apart from the cutie James Franco?) – The F80 Sigma Flat Top Kabuki!! For the record, i dont usually invest a lot of money in brushes (or crushes fot that matter). I have one MAC brush, and the rest are all drug store brushes i bought from New U (Let me know if yo want a review on those), so i had no plans of getting this one. But then, i won it on a giveaway held by Deeptima on her blog, and i have been obsessed with it ever since!

Sigma says “The F80 flat top kabuki brush is perfect for applying and blending liquid, cream and powder products into the skin. The flat surface allows for perfect buffing with flawless results”

What do i use it for?
The  flat top kabuki is now my favourite way to apply liquid foundations, cream  foundations, tinted moisturizers, cream blushes and anything else that needs to be buffed into the skin. I never thought that using a brush would make much of a difference to how well your foundation blends into the skin , but i was way wrong! When i use this brush, i feel like the foundation seeps and gets absorbs into my skin, and  gives a smooth even coverage with a glowing finish. Its gorgeous!!!
Also, i usually apply cream blushes with my fingers but some of them have sticky and hard to blend textures- this is so amazing for that!

The bristles of this are super soft, and very densely packed. The result is the liquid/ cream products get picked up easily by the bristles and some quick buffing around the face results not only in  smooth and flawless application, but it feels like someone is giving you a face massage with buttery soft hands….Who doesnt want that every morning huh?

What i would not recommend it for..
I would not use this for powder products, even though sigma says it can be used like that . It is way too dense and thick , and it picks up A LOT of powder at one go. So there are chances, that the powder can be layed on thick. I prefer  a brush with much more fanned out bristles for powder products.,.

I'm planning to pick up the f82 myself so this review is really helpful! Thanks Mehak :)

I always wondered, why rave about a brush? I am good with Vega.. But seems like it does make a huge difference! Nicely done.

Btw, a tangent question, did your cherryculture packet arrive finally? I am planning to pick up sth from there.


fieran March 1, 2011 at 2:13 pm

This brush is awesome. I have F80 and F84. Like you, I use F80 for liquid foundation. The F84, I use it for blush. F84 applies blush like a dream though I still love MAC's 168 a little bit more.

Hm, I do use F80 for powder too though, so far so good. No cakey effect..yet.

Congrats on winning the brush :)


PeachesandBlush March 1, 2011 at 8:00 pm
