After lusting over the Sigma Brushes, that I had seen so many YouTube bloggers talk about, I decided to try and get some.
I know not a lot of places supply these as they are an American brand and not so easily available over here in the UK, but I found Beauty Chamber on the web and they had a great selection of the brushes available and other products.
I purchased the following brushes:
- E25 Sigma blending brush (MAC 217 dupe) – £9.95
- E30 Sigma pencil brush (MAC 219 dupe) – £8.50
- E45 Sigma small tapered blending brush (slightly smaller than the MAC 224) – £9.95
- E50 Sigma large flush brush (MAC 227 dupe) – £8.95
- E75 Sigma concealer brush (MAC 195 dupe) – £7.95
- F80 Sigma flat top kabuki brush (Oh my god! this is the best foundation brush ever!!!!!!!) – £15.75
I’ve had them now for about 6 weeks and have used them all regularly and cleaned them thoroughly, and so far have not lost any bristles (not sure the technical name ;)) or shape.
These are significantly cheaper than MAC brushes and so far of comparable quality and love using them for my makeup
To purchase these brushes go to Beauty Chamber – the only charge £2.99 for P & P and also post internationally too, so what are you waiting for!
Do you have any Sigma brushes? what are your favourites?
My eagerly anticipated Pixi Glow Tonic arrived yesterday *happy dance* (unfortunately a little leaked whilst in transit so the pictures are not as great as they should be!)
I will do a full review once I’ve had a chance to use it for a while, but so far the results are good for the couple of goes I have had!
If you want to get your hands on your own Pixi Glow Tonic, then you will need to either visit there store in London or call them for mail order:
Telephone: +44 (020) 7287-7211
22a Fouberts Place
Glow Tonic retails at £16.00 for a 250ml bottle, and for mail order there is a shipping fee of £4.50 within the UK and £14.50 for international orders.
Question: Have you used this tonic? what do you think of it?
I have recently found the lovely and very witty Caroline Hirons and what a revelation it has been!
Now that I am now in the “mature” bracket, I thought that I really should start properly looking after my skin, so through trawling Bloglovin, I discovered Mrs Hirons, and a fellow lady of maturity, she has a wealth of knowledge from her years as an advanced facialist.
If there is something she doesn’t know about the skin and beauty, then you do not need to know about it!
Since following her blog, I have changed the way I cleanse my face and have now ditched the muslin cloths for the good ‘ole flannel and it has been so nice to change back as I always felt the muslin cloth was too harsh for my skin – but who was I to go against what the product told me to do?!
I am starting to get a clearer skin and I am looking forward to receiving my new purchase of the Pixi Glow Tonic, which Caroline raves about.
Hi and welcome,
I have always had a bit of thing about makeup and beauty, but never knew where to start, so did the same things day in, day out! Using the same products and one colour eyeshadow and mascara.
That is until I recently found YouTube! and did searches for makeup, especially for hooded eyes as that is what mine are – I know I am late to the party – but as they say better late than never!
Thanks for looking at my blog.
