Sigma Most-Wanted Brush Set Review

Marisa Robinson Beauty Blogger Sigma Most Wanted Brush Set Review

The year was 2014 and it was the year I attended my first IMATS event. It was definitely a senses overload and I had a mental wishlist of all the makeup I wanted to buy. One thing high on my must-haves list was makeup brushes. I had a set which I had acquired through makeup college but I definitely wanted to add to my collection.

That was the day I discovered Sigma Beauty - an innovative cosmetics company that specializes in makeup brushes and brush care accessories. They had so many brushes on display and not only did they look luxe but they felt so soft with the bristles being made from high quality synthetic fibers. I ended up purchasing the Sigma Essential Kit and fast forward to 2017 and I still regularly use these brushes on myself and my clients!

One question I commonly get asked is what brushes or brush set I would recommend for those wanting to get their first makeup brushes. I have purchased A LOT of brushes over the years but buying them separately isn't always cost effective so getting a brush set is a great way to get your collection started. A set which I can highly recommend is the Sigma Most-Wanted Brush Set. This best selling set includes 5 of Sigma's top-selling brushes chosen by fellow beauty lovers, some of which were in my faithful Essential Kit!

In this post I will go through each brush in the set, what it's designed for and how I like to use it.

E25 - Blending
Controlled blending. Blend colours together onto the lid with added control.

How I like to use it:
This brush is perfect for fusing shadows together to create a beautifully blended look! I like using it to apply shadows or even using it clean and lightly going over shadows to blend and soften.

E30 - Pencil
Soften and smoke out lines. Soften pencil liners along the top and bottom lash lines.

How I like to use it:
Pencil brushes are ideal for using on the lower lash line. After I apply an eyeliner or eyeshadow I take a pencil brush and smoke it out and soften harsh lines. I also like using it to precisely apply shadows on the brow bone.

E40 - Tapered Blending
Soft blended crease. Using just the tips to apply colour, sweep back and forth through the crease for a diffused and blended finish.

How I like to use it:
I love using this to apply and blend shadows into the crease and just above for a transition shade.

F35 - Tapered Highlighter
Subtle highlighting. Apply highlighting shades onto the upper contours of the face. Diffused finish gives skin a natural glow. 

How I like to use it:
This brush is ideal for dusting powder highlighters on the tops of the cheekbones. It picks up the shadow and places it beautifully on the skin!

F80 - Flat Kabuki™
Application of liquid or cream products to flat areas of the face such as the forehead and cheeks.

How I like to use it:
This brush is amazing for applying contour shadows and creams and to blend out seamlessly. Remember to blend into your hairline for a natural look.

This set can be purchased online from for only $99  - which is great value because if you purchased each brush separately it would cost a total of $134.50, a saving of $35.50 or another brush!

Also by regularly cleaning your brushes they will last years and continue to perform like they were bought yesterday!
