Review: Sigma F80 – Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki

Can you still remember that I joined the Sigma incentive program? If you can't remember it anymore, you can go to my previous blogpost where you can find more information about it. In that blogpost I also explained that you're able to apply for a FREE Sigma brush with just a few clicks ^___^ SO AWESOME!! Because I joined that program, Sigma Beauty had send me a Sigma brush to review. It's the F80 – Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki. This is my very first Sigma brush, I've been using it for a month now and I'm very satisfied with it.
The F80 Sigma brush is from their Synthetic brush line for high definition, flawless makeup application. The F80 Flat Top Kabuki brush is perfect for applying and blending liquid, cream, and powder products onto the skin, without absorption into the fibers of the brush. The flat surface allows perfect buffing with flawless results. Synthetic Sigmax HD filament.

The price of this brush is $16 and can be purchased at sigmabeauty.com. Believe me the price for this brush is totally worth it!

Packaging & Shipping time
It took around a month until I received it. I was really surprised how well the packaging was. I expected the brush in an envelope because of the size, but it came into a small white box with bubble wrap in it. The item came in a red pouch and there were a few things inside it: The F80 Sigma brush of course, a small card dedicated to me, a small book with the description of their Synthetic Brush Line and a small book about the affiliate program. 
Small card dedicated to me

F80 - Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki
This is how the brush looks like (see pictures below). The look of this brush is very professional, the name of the brush is printed on the handle and it also comes with a brush protector/cover. The large silver ferrule ensures that the bristles are tightly in place. Also the brush has a white flat top, hence the name. The bristles of this brush are extremely soft and it's very gentle on my skin. I can just see and feel that it's a high quality brush, the handle is even great to work with. I TOTALLY LOVE IT ♥!

In the description it says that this brush has more purposes. This brush can be used for applying and blending liquid, cream AND powder products. I tested it out with my Missha M Perfect Cover BB cream #23 that I'm using every day. In the picture below you can see how the brush looks like when it's unused and used. As you can see, the bristles are still separate when it's used, it won't stick to eachother.
I applied 5 dots of BB cream on my face and blended it out with the brush. This brush is absolutely PERFECT for liquid foundation =D! No streaky marks were visible, it was nicely blended and it gave me a flawless looking skin. I even used a little pressure while using the brush, even then, all the bristles stayed intact. Most brushes would shed but this one didn't at all! I applied a bit of BB cream on my hand and blended it with the F80 Flat top kabuki to show you the effect (see picture below). It's looking flawless right ^___^?!

Washed the brush
I washed the brush after I used it and all the bristles were still there, surprisingly not even one came off! Another good thing about this brush is that it came with a brush cover. After I washed the brush, I slipped the cover on so that the bristles could dry and remain in that shape. It's a good way of protecting the brush from dust before the next use ;).

♥ The bristles are VERY soft and gentle on the skin.
♥ No bristles came off while washing the brush
♥ The look of the brush is very professional
♥ Can be used for liquid, cream and powder products (multi-purpose).
♥ It gives a flawless looking skin after blending
♥ It comes with a brush cover/protector

The dense brush hairs prevents it to dry quickly after washing
♥ The liquid foundation won't easily come off, it's harder to wash it clean than regular brushes

I haven't used it to apply powder products, so I can't judge about that. However, I highly recommend this brush: F90 Flat top synthetic kabuki to anyone who is looking for a liquid foundation brush. It really will give you a flawless skin ^__^! I'm extremely happy that I received this brush and I will continue to use it until it will fall apart lol xD.

Do you use Sigma brushes? Which one is your favorite?


  1. The cons is that it needs to be ordered online and it's very dense so drying time takes much longer ^-^

    I also received this brush for review purposes but I haven't found anything great about it yet...

    Great review from you though :)


  2. @deerest, I don't think it's a big con that you're only able to order it online though. They ship it worldwide so everybody is able to get it :). And yeah i agree that it takes more time to try because of the dense hair. Forgot to put that up xD... thanks!

  3. Vicky very kindly gave me her extra F80! I really like it for blending out liquid foundation as well! It does a much better job than the Mac 187 I was using before!

  4. @Jian, ahww that's so sweet of Vicky ^^ ! I know right.. it has become my favorite brush for blending my liquid foundation xD

  5. Ik heb nognooit een sigma brush geprobeerd maar het lijken me hele fijn kwasten!
