Sigma Makeup Brushes - Travel Set Review & Giveaway

Hi Bellas,

I've been so lucky to be in contact with Seymone of Sigma Makeup Brushes. I recently got to try out their new travel sets - Naught in Black and Pretty in Pink. Recently, a lot of videos have come up on the web talking about Sigma Makeup Brushes. Let me preface my review with saying, I want to be completely honest in my review of these because I believe in being an unbiased beauty blogger.

First off, Sigma does such a cute job on packing their brushes. They always come in these beautiful cloth sacks. There are also professional post cards printed in each bag.


These brushes are amazing quality for the price. From the everyday makeup user to the Professional Makeup Artist, these are a great addition to your kit. For comparison purposes...they are a lot better than brushes that you'd find on sites like Coastal Scents. This is because these brushes are not mass produced and resold overseas. Instead, Seymone and her team have researched, tested and developed all of their products on their own. These travel sets come in two options: Nice in Pink Set and Naughty in Black Set.

Nice in Pink Set


Naughty in Black Set


I washed my brushes. They held up pretty well. There was a bit of shedding on the SS150 and SS168. A little bit of shedding is normal in the beginning so hopefully this will diminish over time.



Check out my video review on the Sigma Makeup Travel Sets


Immediately I notice that the travel brushes look almost identical to the full set of Sigma Brushes except for the fact that the handle is shorter. This is surprising because often times, travel sets have lower quality than their full size counterparts.


The only major differences I noticed between the full size and travel size brushes are the following:

-The mini SS150 is smaller than the regular version. This doesn't bother me because the full size bristles w0uldn't be practical to travel with.

-The bristles of the mini SS219 are a little stiffer than the regular version. I actually like this better! It gives you a more precise line...especially for applying shadow to the lower lashline.


Pros

-I love the quality of the brush roll. It's a leather like material with an internal magnetic clasp. There is a brush flat to protect the bristles and a zipper pocket for more storage. This is definitely high quality stuff. I compared it to my Billy B Brush Roll which was a cheap canvas fabric.

-The brushes are pretty much the same as the regular size...no sacrifices in quality. Even the handles have a bit of weight to them - that's a good thing! It shows quality. I was able to use these brushes and have the exact same outcomes as with the regular brushes.

Cons

-The only con I have is that the mini SS168 tends to shed. It's normal for brushes to shed in the beginning (some of my MAC brushes still shed) but I hope this diminishes over time. Also, this brush is too soft and fluffy to really act as a contour brush. If anything, I'd use it for a sheer application of blush.


Giveaway Alert Giveaway Alert Giveaway Alert!!!

Seymore of Sigma Makeup Brushes has armed me with several brush sets to give away! I'll be doing Friday Giveaways. Each Friday, I'll either announce a giveaway on my YouTube, Twitter, or on this blog. The best way to keep track is to follow or subscribe me on all three.

Beyond Outer Beauty said...

I would love to have either of these sets. I've heard a lot of good things about the Sigma Brushes.

SPECiAL x GiRL said...

I don't have many good brushes. I own several E.L.F., Eco Tools, and miscillaneous brushes but none of them lasted me too long. It does the job but I'm just not happy with my brushes. They say "a high quality brush does the job". Since I didn't pay much for my brushes or have knowledge on what's good out there, I am stuck using brushes that I had to adapt to. I always wanted a good brush set because mine are flared at the end. At one point, I wanted to order Coastal Scents brushes but I didn't have a credit card or PayPal account to order with. In addition to some good brushes, I am in desperate need of a new brush roll. Mine has been torn and ripped from constant use. It's been sewn up too many times to even be handled much longer : ( Therefore, I really need a change Ren Ren! : )

Linda said...

Hey Ren Ren,

I would love these brushes. I have been eyeing them since you did a review on them. I really value your opinion. Thanks for doing this contest.

makeup_fetish said...

Hi, Ren. I would love to have these brushes. I am an aspiring makeup artist on a tight budget---cuz I'm a mom of four--- and would love to be able to get quality brushes for my budding makeup artist kit.

Makeup Mama said...

Holy comments Batman! Haha, I guess I'll try anyway. I'd like to win a travel brush set because I've been doing a lot of traveling lately and although I've become a much better packer (I always used to pack waaaaaay too much) my brushes seem to take up way too much space in my luggage. I've been shopping around but I think that a new set of travel brushes is something that my poor wallet can't handle, but a free set? Heck yes!

jems379 said...

Ren, I've been watching you for for a while now and really value your opinion, so I would love to win these brushes and start a collection.

makeup_fetish said...

Hi, Ren. I would absolutely love to win these fab brushes...I am an aspiring makeup artist (on a tight budget might I add--mom of 4) and would love to add this to my budding makeup artist kit....Thanks so much and have a wonderful weekend.

Askmewhats said...

I'd love to win because I've been hearing so many great stuffs about Sigma brushes being high quality! And the fact that there's no way for me to purchase it down here, wonderful contest :)

Arezu said...

I'd love to try these brushes out!
Everyone keeps talking about how they're seriously comparable to MAC but cheaper, and I'd really like to see for myself. Hopefully it would set off a new trend and people can stop buying expensive make-up brushes, and get something cheaper with the same quality.

haadiyah2004 said...

I would really like to win these brushes, I need new brushes.

Tempted said...

Fiona said...

Hey RenRen,

I would love to win these brushes because well....I always travel and hate bringing my full size brushes with me and packing them with brush guards and all that jazz. It will be so much easier to have a dedicated set and not having to decide which ones to bring just to have less bulk in my suitcase. Many thanks for doing this contest.

Cindy said...

I have a couple of trips planned and this travel brush set will come in very handy. I hope I win! Good luck everyone! =)

serenity. said...

Hi Ren!
As a fellow ATLien (HAHA) I love watching your videos and you give amazing tips and tricks. I would like to win so that I can give the set to my cousin, who just entered high school. She wants MAC brushes, but it's just not reasonable right now, with her age and all. Having the Sigma brushes will really make her day. Thanks and good luck to all that enter!

MakeupByAmberRashid said...

I'm scared to get this coz they might end up like my MAC holiday brush sets that are too scratchy and sheds alot..I'm glad this has the same quality as the full size version..so I would like to win some since I can't really afford it right now because I still don't have any job..thank you! ^_^

OMG, i would love to win this brush set! I'm just starting with makeup, and after watching so many makeup tutorial videos, i feel as if i should start moving on from those sponge applicators. I'm still a highschool student, so i dont have the kind of money to buy a set of brushes, so i would definately love to win, and starting doing the tutorials i see, "properly" =D

yeahyeahyeah said...

I'd love to win because I've never gotten a chance to try Sigma brushes; and since I'm still a student I don't normally have that excess cash to buy extra cosmetic items for myself.

So thanks in advance for your generosity!

Sophia said...

OH these brushes seem to be a hipe. they must be amazing then!!! Please enter me All i have are cheap elf brushes. I would love to have highend blending fun!

Emilita said...

I'd like to win so I can finally have a full set of brushes, and use them to make myself look polished and professional when I start my new job in a few weeks. Heading into a big, new office is going to be a bit scary...these brushes will help give me confidence that I look the part. :)

nai nai said...

I'd love to get this set!

it would be like a treat, considering i had to take $1500 out of my school funds to pay for my 2 root canals and crowns today :(

izumi said...

i'd love to win because i don't have a full set of brushes yet! :( and brushes are unfortunately not at the top of my "to buy/pay off" list. sadness!

sandra said...

I would like to win because i'm an aspiring makeup artist in school and need brushes! An artist without brushes?? :O

adriana said...

I would love to win the sigma brushes because they are really good quality from which i hear the reviews from! i really want them because i cant order online boo hoo yea it sucks dont have a credit card and im desperatly been wanting to try them:)

mayrastratton said...

I always watch make up videos and it's frustrating not having the right tools to get a certain look because of the brushes. I would really love the brushes and put great use to them! Thanks for your consideration!

Much love!

holly said...

Hi Ren! I have recently (in the past year) started to bring my hair/makeup career back to life after focusing on the corporate world for several years. I would like to win these brushes because I am trying to expand my horizons as I am a total MAC brush user and would like to be introduced to other lines. These brushes look like a good start...

kat said...

Hi ren! I'd love to join because sigma brushes are not available here, but there has been so many raves about it that i feel so incredibly frustrated.

PS. I wanna follow your blog but i cannot find the follow me button for the life of me. lemme know how so i can hit it up.thanks!

teeyah. said...

I love to win new brushes because when I saw and watched your review, there was a spark with the brushes that say I have to have one. It's not available in this country, too :(

yours truly said...

i follow you all three ways so it's easy to find me, heh. i want to win because i'm really into exploring makeup but lack the brushes to work with. i'm not from the states so i can't take advantage of online shopping the way many ladies would. buying quality brushes is a challenge for me and I trust your judgement when it comes to quality of makeup tools.

oh and pick me cuz i'm determined to win. if not this week, the next time for sure. lol

I'd love to win Sigma's Travel Set Brushes because I've just started getting into makeup this year and been trying to rattle up a collection. I don't have any expensive makeup because I can't afford any of the high end cosmetics. What I've been using are E.L.F. brushes, Posh, and a few Target brushes. I wish I can own a nice brush set especially if it's comparable to M.A.C.! Almost all the gurus on YouTube have been raving about them and I've enter so many Sigma Brush Giveaways; I really want these brushes! I'm a up coming Freshman in college and the fact that it's a Travel Set makes it perfect for me to not have to bring a lot to school (I don't have a brush roll so it gets a bit messy in my bag hehe ^^;) also I wouldn't have to spend money because it's going towards me education. You are one of the few Gurus that really give an unbiased and great review so, I really believe these brushes are amazing! Thank you Ren for giving us an opportunity like this, it's really a great prize and I hope to win ^^!

MsIndependent161 said...

Ren,
I would like to win because I dont have any makeup brushes. The ones that I use are the ones that come with the cheap makeup I buy. Also I dont have a job and I cannot afford these kind of brushes.
Anyways that's all..
Have a good day!
-MsIndependent161-

Sunshine said...

YES YES YES .
I'd love to win and try out these sigma brushes (; Why? I'd like to know if buying the full make up set would be a good investment .

So Ren, pretty please w/ the on top? (;

Brown Beautiful Cellist said...

Hello RenRen. I'd love to win these brushes as well bc it's a recession and I've been saving for the past month to get these brushes but bills keep pilling up. I sooo need new brushes and since I'm a traveling artist, this would help a lot!!! Thanks for doing this contest!

ashley said...

Hey Ren, thanks for this giveaway! Like many others, I've seen many raves about how much they compare to MAC. I currently own only 3 brushes. In this economy, I can't bring myself to spend $30 on a single brush!!

erissa said...

i would love to win because i always wanted to try out their brushes and i absolutely love your blog! thanks for the great opportunity!

University Guuuuurrrl said...

id like to win cause i cant afford good quality brushes! i know womp womp. but it would be nice to own some :)

Miss.Billie said...

I would love to win these brushes because I heard that the brushes are amazing. I can't afford to buy good brushes at the moment. I can't afford them because I recently graduated high school in June and then began college seven days later, so I don't have the money to buy good quality brushes.

Sigma brushes are the best thing ever! I'm so glad they have this travel brush set.. traveling with full size brushes can get frustrating, as they take up more space. Please enter me to win!

k a t //d said...

Ren dear left a comment on ur video as well, I would die of joy to get one. I do not have the cash to buy these brushes and It would mean so much to me if I won.

xxNikkiDooxx said...

I'd really love to win these sigma brushes cause I've heard it's comparable to mac, and I dont have the money to buy mac stuff cause it's waaay too expensive. ;)

Andee Layne said...

love your blog! Please check out my fashion and lifestyle blog www.andeelayne.blogspot.com! Please follow it as I will yours! xo

Kimberly said...

Wow, I can't believe the timing & your giveaway, I was just shopping for a new brush set earlier this week. I honestly don't own a descent set right now at all, most of them are cheapies from the dollar store. I'd be so excited to get my hands on some real makeup brushes, I can already picture the looks I could create!

sweetness07 said...

Hey Ren! I would love to win these brushes because I love to wear make up I know I'm not the only one..I'm also a college student and I don't have the funds to buy them, I also heard that these were comparable to mac brushes...

chia_moua08 said...

help a girl out who only has elf brushes. lol please

Gizelle said...

Hey Ren, I would love this travel set since I'm going on vacation for a month in October to your hometown for my sister-in-law's wedding. =)

BeautifulcreationZ said...

I would really love the Sigma brushes so i can practice on making my makeup skills better, i think having great brushes would help a lot. please pick me

maya said...

I'd love to win because where I live MAC brushes are about twice as expensive as in the States and I really love to have some good brushes, but simply can't afford MAC. (plus drugstore and crown brushes scratch up my face and lids :( )

LadyBreezy said...

Hey Ren!

Posted to your YT video as well (I am LadyBre83 there) I wanted you to enter me for these amazing brushes! I have such small hands and typically buy travel brushes but I have not been able to get good ones. After I saw your review on YT I said those ARE the ones for me! Plus it helps that it's a giveaway as I am unemployed until I start my new job.

Good luck to everyone :)

the golden sparkle said...

Hey Ms.Ren Ren, I would love to have those brushes. I hear they are great quailty and watching your reviews makes me want them more. please pick me :)

Kimi said...

Just because I'm a poor college student, doesn't mean that beauty (and all the pricey gadgets, gizmos and products that go along with it) go out the window!! It just means I have to search harder for the deals, and the products that do the work that big-names do. Thanks for posting informational vids and reviews for people like me!! It makes my search for great beauty buys easier...and this one is just in time to replace those beaten up brushes I've had for years (ol' christmas presents from years past) They just don't apply the product like they used to. Keep up the great work Ren!!

rakkelash said...

hiii
well i would like to win those brushes cuz i don´t have jejeje
yeah i just have a mini kit for the eyes and thats it so i wanna win see ya

Crystal said...

Hey Ren!
Remember me? Sorry Ive disappeared from your blog for the entire month of july! i was off at a camp volunteering to serve kids with disabilities, teenage mothers, and regular high school kids in need.

i literally just moved into my dorm in college and i believe that this travel brush set would be a great addition because i will soon be on the go--to classes, the gym, workshops, lectures and i believe that having great quality brushes that are affordable, easy to travel with, and compact (because dorm space is limited) is the best for busy students like me! Thanks girl :)
-Crystal

goldyann said...

I would like to be enter into the contest please. The reason I would like to be entered is because I am young and I just started putting on more make-up and I need brushes. My parents would not let me buy anything, now with this type of economy, my spending is basically $0. My parents are being very tight with my budget. I have never won anything in my life, and maybe getting a chance of winning a sigma brush set would be amazing. So please, thank you for having this contest, you are great! ;D

Ida said...

awesome giveaway :D i want to win because i'm just a beginner with makeup, and definitely need more brushes. also because the sigma brushes look and sound great from your review! :D

Michelle Lei said...

I would LOVE to win this because i'm a beginner with make up and this would really make things alot easier for me and i've heard really great reviews on these brushes. So Hopefully i'll get chosen. Thanks Ren (:

ChaoticRamblings said...

I would love to win because I have been following you, as well as other makeup gurus on youtube for awhile now and all of you have inspired me to get into playing with makeup. My skills have gone from none to something just by watching all of you. i mean i never thought people would ask me to do their makeup but they do, && i learned from the best! I have brushes but they are definitely not good quality ones and i heard great brushes are the trick. If these brushes could improve my skills even more i would love to win this brush set!

leo said...

I would love to win this because I am looking for good quality brushes to travel with and I don´t like the MAC brush sets or any other travel sets I have seen so far.

fatima said...

I would love to win because I just stated experimenting with make up and I don't really have good brushes so these sigma make-up brushes would do a world of wonders. thank you so much for this great give away =)

Danica Krizia said...

Hey RenRen!! awesome review on these brushes! I wish I can make reviews on items, but whenever I try to I got lost for words, and have a brain fart. I end up just saying "TRUST ME THEY'RE GREAT!" lol but anyway..I would love to win these brushes, not only because they look amazing and super soft, but also cuz I'm an aspiring MUA, and it would really help a lot to start my kit and such, and collect more things. I don't have much brushes, and I tend to collect slowly because of course, the economic situation as well. Also, it would look really great to clients to have one set of brushes that are the same brand that looks really professional, and organized. In addition to that, I really wanted to buy them online, but since I had an identity theft, I had to close my card :( I don't want to sound like I'm sucking up, but honestly you're the one who inspired me to create a blog because I loved going to your site, and watching your videos. && I love your tutorials! Lastly, if I win you contest, it would be the very first contest I'd win :) Thanks for reading this long comment Ren! <3 <3

cindycs said...

i would love to win these brushes because the quality is comparable to mac and im in the market for some high quality brushes

Tina said...

Enter me please!! I would love to win because I need more brushes! I would love a travel set to just grab and go when I'm in a rush and plus it's so easy to take along with ya!!

Zephyr said...

I've heard of Sigma but am honestly not too familiar with them.

I think my makeup application techniques are really messy and imprecise which deters me from putting makeup on sometimes. I think this is largely because the brushes I have are sub par (I bought them on ebay) and I am not in the habit of spending money that I don't have on MAC brushes (although I want to!).

These brushes look like a great set and I would love to add them to my paltry collection of brushes. Hopefully, I can get better with makeup with them.

durae2003 said...

I would LOVE to get a set of these brushes. I am a esthetic student and we do makeup for the customers apon request. We are not provided with quality products to do these services, and this would be a great help for me, and my classmates!!!!!

Beth said...

I'm going on a trip soon and I would LOVE to have travel sized brushes that work really well.
I enjoy your videos as well.

Beth said...

I would love to win a travel sized set of brushes that work well, as I am going on a trip in October!

Hi!!
Looove your blog and I'd really like to get this travell set.

Michélle said...

I would love to win this brush set - like everyone else, I've only heard the greatest things about them.

Why I want to win: I don't have any travel brushes and I travel a lot. I keep getting across poorly made travel brushes, but these seems to be perfect! :D
xo

Marietta said...

I 'd love to get these brushes! Lately I'm travelling a lot and it s hard along with everything else to carry the full size brushes, they take too much space, plus i'm scared i'll break them! The travel set is just perfect!
