Sigma F80 Kabuki Brush Review

This is the first Sigma brush that I have ever bought, and I think that it is safe to say that I bought it because of one of my favourite YouTubers Jaclyn Hill. Some of you may already know if you have visited my blog before that I am an impulse buyer, if I see YouTubers that I like talking about a product and recommending it, I can assure you that I will be going out and buying it for myself. And that was the case when it comes to this Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush. I understand that most YouTubers only promote products so heavily because they are paid to do so either by the brand or by affiliate codes, but I am still an absolute sucker for them!

If anybody has watched any Jaclyn Hill makeup tutorials in the past, then you will probably have seen her using the Sigma F80 Kabuki. Well, now in fact you probably see her using a Morphe M439, but a couple of months ago she was all over the Sigma F80 and I always adored how it looked. I even think that she described this Sigma brush as her ride and die on more than one occasion and that completely sold me on it and now I am the proud owner of this brush and I really do love it.

Before I bought this brush, I had been using my Chanel paddle foundation brush and as much as I loved it, it was refreshing to switch over to this Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki. What I love the most about this foundation brush is that it really works the foundation into the skin, as opposed to just painting it onto the skin like a traditional foundation brush works. I felt like when I switched over to using the F80, I used much less product, which in turn made my skin look much brighter and healthier even with my foundation on.

I have been using this brush now for a couple of months and I have to admit that I am really loving it. The application of the product to the face using this brush is much quicker and easier. I also notice that when I use this brush, it doesn’t soak up much product, which is probably due to the synthetic bristles. It is also beautiful and soft which makes it an absolute dream to use day in and day out on the face. I have also used this to help blend in my concealer and contouring and it always makes the skin look so beautiful.

I have obviously washed this brush quite a few times since I first bought it and it seems to wash like a dream. Obviously with this being a foundation brush, it does need to be washed regularly, and no matter what I have thrown at it, it always seems to bounce right back and be as good as new. I have found that the easiest way to wash this foundation brush is by using baby shampoo and a small amount of disinfectant and to just keep it running under nice warm water. Then I dry it lightly on a towel and then I just leave it to air dry. When I do wash and dry this brush, I haven’t noticed any shedding which a great thing for a foundation brush is!

One thing that I did notice about this soon on was that it got clogged up quite easily with product, but that was completely my own fault. With other foundation brushes in the past I had always applied my foundation straight onto the brush and then to my face without popping it on the back of my hand or a palette. As easy as this was, it obviously caused some of the foundation to drip through the bristles which made it not feel very nice. I soon noticed the error of my ways and purchased a palette and that seemed to solve everything. I now make sure that I pop the product onto a palette first with any foundation that I use.

I really do love this brush and I know that it is going to be my go to foundation brush for a very long time. I have been recommending this Sigma F80 to everybody because I really do think that it is a great brush. I will leave a link to it down below in case you want to check it out for yourself. Make sure to leave me a comment and let me know if you have tried this brush and what you thought about it, if not tell me what your favourite foundation brush is and I will be sure to check it out!
