I was contacted by Obsessed Canada (owned by Nail Polish Canada) to let me know they are now selling Sigma brushes, which is great, since they are a Canadian company based in Vancouver, with Canadian pricing and great shipping! Obsessed Canada is essentially the same as NPC, but instead of focusing on the nail products, they focus on all the other beauty products available. Sigma brushes can be purchased from both Obsessed Canada and Nail Polish Canada.
Any ways, I was lucky enough to be able to select one of Sigma's brushes to review for you all, and I was really excited since I had never tried or owned a Sigma brush before! I selected the E40 Tapered Blending brush because I wanted a new shadow blender brush, and this one looked like nothing I owned.
I've been using this brush for a few weeks now, and it's excellent! I'm a bit confused, as NPC says it has natural bristles, but Sigma's site says it has Sigmax synthetic fibres, so do with that what you will, but yeah... this brush is beautiful! It costs $20.80 CAD from NPC, though it is currently out of stock on both sites. You can ask to be notified of its restocking, however, at least on NPC. Plus, the Sigma brushes ship free with no minimum spend!
I talked a while about this brush in my Summer favourites video (I'll just leave this link here, if you're interested), but this tapered blending brush has long, very bendy bristles, and is great at a ton of tasks! It very quickly blends out a crease colour for soft, smokey edges, and is good to build up your crease colour, apply brow bone highlight, or even delicately contour your nose. The thinner, more flexible brush is great whether you want to smoke your shadows up really high, or keep it contained to the crease, making it a great brush for beginners, or anyone who finds that they blend their shadows too high consistently using denser, more over-sized brushes!
Unlike the xoBeauty Round Top Blender brush (which I still love for other things. You can find my review of the xoBeauty brushes here: on the YouTubes), this Sigma brush may be much easier to control for some. Also, unlike shorter blenders, which can be good for applying and building colour, but not so great at blending and softening, this brush performs both those tasks easily.
Really, what I'm saying is: if you want to have only one crease brush, get this one! I completely think the $20 price tag is worth it. This brush is so versatile. I'd love to try more Sigma brushes now!
If you want to pick up this brush (or get a notification when it restocks), or check out what other brushes NPC offers, head over to ObsessedCanada.com.
