Sigma Beauty 18K Gold Kabuki F94 Makeup Brush
Bought for: $18.40 or approx. P2,785 | SRP: $52
Bought from: Sigma Beauty
Last year if you can still recall - I'll make you if you cannot, by visiting this blog post - I made a haul and that includes this Sigma Beauty 18K Gold Kabuki F94 Makeup Brush. This brush was released way back as part of Sigma's limited edition extravaganza collection where they feature four (4) different brushes in lavish 18K gold ferrules and sleek, black handles. Thankfully, they had it sold individually. I only had the chance to buy the kabuki one as I assume that everything else got sold out long before I started shopping from the website.
Anyway, I'm still happy that this baby waited for me because it was phased out a couple of days after I made my purchase! I don't know what else could be the purpose of this blog review if that's the case, but I'm hoping that Sigma would continue to resell these types of brushes. Not only they are efficient and functional, they are absolutely aesthetically pleasing too!
Sigma Beauty 18K Gold Kabuki F94 Makeup Brush is a handy brush with short, dense and soft bristles for the application of mineral makeup powder. It gives a luxurious and even application of powder to set the makeup. This brush is also made of synthetic and antimicrobial bristles for best holding and blending effect. Wooden handle is light with eight coats of paint and primer for lasting beauty while ferrule is durable and corrosion-resistant. This brush is 100% cruelty-free product of Sigma.
When I bought this brush, it doesn't come with a box or what. It's only packed in a plastic with Sigma logo and that's it. It wasn't a big deal because first, I got it on a huge mark down price and secondly, all the items I bought together were housed securely in a sturdy box that you can even reuse for different purposes. What I'm trying to say is that, yes, it arrived in pristine condition, no dents, no damages, no broken parts or whatsoever.
This is the first time I ever own a brush that's gold-plated and if I ever get broke, I know which one from my stash to sell - just kidding! Anyway, the brush is indeed well-made and you'll know exactly that a fortune was spent to create such a lavish and gorgeous piece of a makeup brush. The handle is very sturdy and despite owning this brush for over a year now, it's still in its pristine, one piece condition.
The bristles are the softest you will ever own in your entire life. I'm not exaggerating but the brush head is super dense and soft to the skin. No pricking or tugging at all. It takes a while to dry but oh, never mind. This brush is a 100% cruelty-free product so bristles is made of the highest quality synthetics. It's white and pure which actually reminds me of goat hair but is not. The only problem I had is that the brush head gradually turns yellow in time so you have to make sure that you're using a quality brush cleanser. I love using my Beauty Blender Liquid Blender Cleanser to remove tough stains and dirt. A few drops will make the brush looks brand new again.
Because of its large brush head, it's able to cover a huge part of the skin and does the job pretty fast. You can use it to buff in mineral makeup onto the face or use it as a body brush to spread bronzers or powders. The dense, tightly packed bristles aid in even application and airbrush finish. I sometimes use it to set my makeup with a setting powder but make sure to use a light hand because this brush is quite heavy and full that it might disturb the makeup underneath.
Overall, this is a brush that's really of great quality and if you are a collector, you should get your hands on it. If I am not mistaken, this is still available in Amazon. If you are on a tight budget though, there are still a lot of other kabuki brushes that are way more accessible but still does the job. The one from MAC is well-raved and the Charm Cosmetics Angled Kabuki Buffer Brush is also something you can consider as a cheaper alternative.
