We all know that when we talk about quality makeup brushes, Sigma's one of the leading brands we could ever think of. And because their brushes are, no joke, a bit on the expensive side, I had to really save and wait until they host a sale which they fortunately do, a lot of times. Just last 4th of March 2018, I decided to splurge on two brush sets which are the Premium Professional Kit (15-piece set) and Basic Face Kit (5-piece set). I was supposed to buy the entire chrome set with 29 pieces of both face and eye brushes yet I hesitated thinking I won't be using everything in the collection.
Last April 02, 2018, I received a notice from the post office that I have a parcel waiting to be claimed. The first thing I had in my mind was the brushes I ordered from Sigma. As if I ordered anything else straight from abroad! Since they offer FREE INTERNATIONAL NON-TRACKABLE SHIPPING for orders worth $150 and above, I took advantage of that and got my parcel in a month's period.

The items were carefully sealed in a huge box, huge enough to look awkward on me (good thing, Adrian's with me). It doesn't lack anything in my invoice so it's fairly hassle-free. I don't want any issues with my items because...how do I ship it back to U.S. right? Aside from the brushes, I also receive a complimentary sample of Sigmagic Liquid Brush Cleaner and an information booklet.
Basically, here's how much ordering from Sigma costed me including the 30% off discount from using the code SHOPSIGMA. Don't use it anymore, it's long been expired. :P No worries though, I'm pretty sure they have upcoming promotions for us all!
And of course, I had to test customer service too! Since I opted for the free non-trackable shipping, I was scared I'd lose my items. I inquired whether or not my parcel was already in transit and how many days would it take for me to receive them and some more other queries. The representatives I spoke to gave me prompt and speedy replies. They were courteous too. Kudos!
Overall, it was fun shopping in Sigma Beauty. I'm definitely rooting for the Kabuki Brush Set next time! Have you tried shopping from Sigma if you are overseas? Any thoughts?
