Huge make up brush haul; Sigma & Zoeva

Hello Sweethearts,

I recently decided to order some new make up brushes, not only to use in beauty school but also to update my personal collection. Today the Sigma brushes arrived and as soon as I posted the picture on Instagram my account tripped because so many people liked the photo. So I thought that it would be appropriate to start this haul with the Sigma brushes.




The Sigma blending - E25 brush was a present from Sigma. This is a small travel size brush that I got for free with my order, they let me choose with brush I wanted and since I needed a new blending brush I found this one very appropriate.

Sigma about this brush:

'The E25 Blending features a slightly firm and rounded brush head for universal blending of products. Works well to soften intense lines and edges and great for combining colors on the lid. '


The Sigma firm blender E44 is a brush I decided to go with because I need to blend a lot in beauty school when applying eye make up on my models. So I thought the more different blending brushes the better.

The brush is $16.

Sigma about this brush:
' The E44 Firm Blender features a firm, dense brush head great for intense crease application for even blending of color or blending two shades together.'


The Sigma flat kabuki F80 is actually a gift for my sister. I already own this brush since 2011 and I love it to bits so I thought this would be a nice gift! Click here to read about the article I wrote when I just got the brush.

The brush is $24.

Sigma about the brush:
' The F80 Flat Kabuki™ features a flat top brush head with very soft and dense fibers. Made with exclusive Sigmax® fibers, this brush provides a flawless, high definition finish with liquid or cream foundation without any absorption of product. '


The Sigma 3DHD precision brush I just needed to have and try out. The brush is so unique by itself. I can't wait to try this brush out tomorrow!

The brush is $19.

Sigma about this brush:
' The 3DHD™ Precision is a multifunctional brush engineered to perfection. It was uniquely designed for smaller areas of the face to apply liquid, cream and powder products uniformly on every curve, crease and angle. Patent pending.'


The last Sigma brush I bought is the Small tapered blending - E45. I already own one of these but I desperately needed one for my beauty school brush collection. When it comes to the outer corner of your eye and crease and blending this one is perfection. I feel like this brush doesn't get enough credit for how amazing it is.

The brush is $14.

Sigma on this brush:
' The E45 Small Tapered Blending brush features a small, tapered brush head with a pointed tip. This brush is ideal for adding depth in the crease with control of product placement. Works great with dark shades of powder shadows keeping them in place. '



I ordered the Zoeva 104 buffer because I wanted to know if this was a good dupe for the F80 and I wanted one of these flat kabuki brushes for my beauty school brush collection. I will do a review soon.

The brush is €14.80.

Zoeva about this brush:
' This brush is perfect for all-over application and blending of foundation, powder and mineral makeup products. 
For a super natural finish, apply your makeup gently by dabbing the brush onto your skin and then softly blend the edges in a circular motion.



I bought the Zoeva 315 Fine liner  twice one for my personal collection and one for my beauty school collection. I always wanted one of those angled precision brushes.

The brush is €6.80 each.

Zoeva about this brush:
' A classic eyeliner brush with a fine point, for easy and precise application. Its nylon bristles work best with cream liner and liquid products. To create eyelid lines with eyeshadow gently dip the brush in a little water and apply the line with your favorite eyeshadow color. '


The 226 smudger is a brush I ordered because I feel like every collection needs one of these brushes and my beauty school collection had non.

This brush is €7.80.

Zoeva about this brush:
' The Smudger eye brush is the perfect tool to apply, shade and blend eyeshadow and kohl liner along the lash line. The professional shape of the brush creates easily smoky eyes and seductive cat eye looks. '


The Zoeva 129 luxe fan brush I simply order because I really needed a fan brush and I didn't have one. And since I was already on the Zoeva site I decided to buy one from Zoeva.

The brush is €10.80.

Zoeva about this brush:
' Soft as a feather, the ZOEVA Luxe Fan brush is especially suited for the delicate application of powder highlighter for a super natural finish. Additionally you have a professional tool to erase any fall out or excess powder from your face. Multitasking at its best.'


The last brush I ordered from Zoeva is the 228 Luxe crease brush. I just really wanted a new crease brush for my personal collection since I didn't really had one. And which beauty guru can life in this day and age without a crease blending brush.

The brush is €7.80.

Zoeva about this brush:

' An essential tool for a professional crease definition and a perfect eye contour. With this brush you can blend eyeshadow and shade transitions. A darker shade in the eyelid crease creates depth and highlights the eyes. '

What's your favourite Zoeva or Sigma brush?
