E20 Short Shader- This brush is meant to apply color to small areas of the lid or to blend color into the lower lash line. The bristles are short and firm, but have a bit more “give” so to speak than other brushes I have used in this shape. This lets you blend out colors somewhat as you apply them.
E30 Pencil- Use to soften pencil liners around the lash line, add color to lash line, or highlight inner corner. This is quite a bit firmer than other pencil brushes, and the bristles are synthetic, so this will pick up more shadow than the regular pencil brush would.
E44 Firm Blender- Intense, even blending of the crease for strong color application. This brush is really cool and totally caught me by surprise! It looks like just another blending brush, but it places color and blends it like a dream. I tried this one out with a bright blue matte shadow and it blended it beautifully in seconds.
E57 Firm Shader- Applies intense colors all over lid for a controlled color finish. Paddle shaped brush that picks up and places color really nicely. Whatever Sigma is using for the bristles in this collection are really impressive!
E58 Cream Color- Long brush head is best used to apply cream products for a diffused finish. This brush is a long paddle shape and is pretty thin. The shape would allow you to apply cream products fairly heavily if you wanted, or help to blend out a small amount.
E59 Wide Shader- Apply intense color for a fast, strong application of the full lid. This brush is amazing! It does exactly what it says- quick application of the full eyelid. Evenly applied matte shadow quickly and nicely.
Something I love about theses is I had basically NO fallout, and I wasn’t applying these looking for a nice look- I was just applying to see how the brush worked, which was pretty messy, but still, no fallout, and the “looks” turned out better than I ever would have meant them to! This is a reason why I think quality brushes are a million percent more important than expensive, quality makeup. If you have great brushes, they will make any makeup look good :)
