If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I switched all of my brushes to the Morphe brand around April/May of 2016.  I do have the new E.L.F. Beautifully Precise Brushes that were gifted to me, however, I have random luxury brushes from Marc Jacobs and Nars that I use. I have never owned a Sigma Brush as I always felt they were expensive regardless of how most people rave about them.  Now, I have the entire Sigma Brush Cleaning Set (the tower, express mat and the glove), but that is a different story.  Anyway, long story short, I received a 25% off coupon with free shipping in my e-mail towards the end of 2016 and I saw one of my favorite YouTubers, Lizzy Guttierez of What Would Lizzy Do, use this brush, so I decided to try it.

The packaging is pretty straight forward, but it is nice and sleek.  The brush handle is sturdy and firm, which shows good quality as some can be flimsy.  I love the shape of the bristles, which is in some triangular form, that is supposed to get into all the nooks and crannies of the face. The shape of the brush allows the flat sides and the edges to accomplish that job.  Sounds amazing, right? When I used this brush to apply foundation, I did not have a great experience as others did, why that is the case, I  haven't got a clue.  The bristles are packed and dense because they are short, but they really feel synthetic and flimsy (not really sure how to describe it).  Maybe it is because it is made with their Sigmax Fibers which may be different from typical synthetic bristles.  That being said, it made the application very streaky and it moved my foundation around.  This is a $25 brush, yes, I got it with a discount, but still.  My Morphe M439 brush is a simple round brush packed with short bristles but it is dense and it actually deposits and blends liquid products without streaking or moving the product around the face and that brush is priced at $12.99.

I have not tried this brush using a foundation stick, so I will test that out and see how it works and I will post an update on this review.  But for now, if you ask me if I will repurchase, sorry Sigma Brush fans but this is a no go for me.
