Sigma Review + Giveaway! **CLOSED**

Hi guys! It's finally time for the big giveaway I have spent the past couple days blogging about. Thanks for all your well-wishes. Smokey is doing fine. He's still a little sluggish today but he's purring and eating. Okay, onto the good stuff.

About two-three weeks ago Sigma sent me their Complete Set of Professional Brushes. I was very honored and beyond thrilled with the opportunity. For those who don't know Sigma brushes are a very well-known dupes for MAC brushes. I'm thinking about doing a video, that way I can go more in-depth, so keep an eye out for that. :) 

 First, I'd like to point out that if you buy all twelve Sigma brushes that I'm going to show you that it'll cost you $69.99 without the brushfold and $89.99 with the brush fold. If you were to buy all twelve of these brushes from MAC it would cost you $333. I just did the math.

I feel that there really is no comparison. That a $263 difference! And I feel the only significant difference between the two bush sets is the fact that one set says MAC while the other says Sigma.

 Anyway, the brush fold is also amazing quality. Its this soft, leather-y feel to them. And the snap to close the fold is magnatized and isn't a cheap velcrow strip like other folds I've seen. Sigma really put a notcable effort to make their prodcuts the best quality they could make them.

And all the brushes are made from either natural, synthetic, or a mix bristiles. Natural bristles make the brushes softer. And I know tht I mentioned that the brushes are soft but I don't think you understand how amazing they feel on your skin.

Well, that's my review of Sigma brushes. They're durable and amazing quality. The handle is long and fits perfectly in my hand. :) I also love the fact that they come with a pamphlet exaplaining the purpose of each brush. It also comes with instructions on how to care for your brushes.

Sigma wants the brushes to be an investment that lasts for a long, long time. :) If you want a list of all the brushes, their purpose, and my thoughts on them click here!

Okay, that are all the brushes you get in the set. Now onto the giveaway!!
