Review: Sigma Sigmax Synthetic Precision Brush Kit


Sigma Sigmax Synthetic Precision Brush Kit

Ever since their release, the Sigma Synthetic Precision Kit has been on my list of must-try brushes. The unique shapes and small sizes of each were unlike any I had seen before. Although I didn't know what I would use them for, I knew I could find something to use them for. So, on a whim, I decided that it was time to add them to my brush jars. 

The Sigma Sigmax Synthetic Precision Brush Kit contains 5 brushes made of "Sigmax" synthetic fibers made to mimic your fingertips when applying cream, powder, or liquid products. While I'm not sure how much of the above promised is due to the special Sigmax fibers, the important thing is whether or not they actually do them. After a little over two weeks of use, I would say so. Despite being synthetic, the fibers are very soft, yet not so much so that it feels like product slides off. There hasn't been any shedding from first use to first wash, and they were really easy to clean. All of the brushes are densely packed, but are still flexible enough to be effective. Sigmax or no Sigmax, these synthetic fibers are good!

Included in the set is a Precision Flat P80, Precision Angled P88, Precision Rounded P82, Precision Tapered P86, and Precision Angled P84. Although it might seem like there are minimal differences between each brush, they all work well for very specialized tasks. The flat P80 is good for stippling concealer on small blemishes, the flat angled P84 works well to apply under eye concealer and highlight, the P82 is also good for blending concealer all over the face, but I also like it for applying a sheer wash of cream shadow or a sharp contour, the tapered P86 is perfect for applying concealer to the nose and inner eye corner, and the angled P84 is great for applying and blending cream shadow in the outer eye corner. Of course, there are a million other uses for them - these are just to give you an idea of ways I love to use them.

The $65 price tag of the Precision Brush Set puts each brush at $13 - $3 less than buying them individually. However, I definitely don't think you need each one since I just talked about a few that overlap capabilities. It's really only worth purchasing the set if you feel you need more than 4. Also, I recently came across three brushes from Crown Brush that look identical to the P86, P84, and P82 that I'm still evaluating for similarities. Still, strictly speaking on these brushes, I would recommend them all. They function nicely, feel well-made, and are reasonably priced.
