Best Sellers Makeup Brushes and Tools

Reviews: Best Selling Makeup Brushes and Tools by Sigma and NYX

Hi everyone. Welcome back to my page. Today I would be talking about a few bestselling makeup brushes and tools and giving my thorough review of them. This part includes the best of Sigma eye brushes in a set, and the NYX blending sponge. The next part will cover makeup.


NYX Professional Makeup Complete Control Blending Sponge Review

The NYX Professional Makeup Complete Control Blending Sponge is comparable to the award-winning The Original Beautyblender Makeup Sponge. This NYX's sponge has very good reviews on Google. It is a multi-tasker. It has two beveled sides for smoothing, blending, and sculpting applications. It has a narrow pointed precision tip to target hard-to-reach corners around the nose and eyes. You can use the rounded side to apply foundation to your face. The sponge can be used for cream and powder-based makeup, for face mist, or setting spray. You can also use the slant side for creating dramatic eyes with eye shadow or liner.

The NYX sponge is less dense than the Beautyblender, but they both give the same finish. The sponge retails for 10 USD whereas the Beautyblender is 20 USD. So I would prefer the NYX sponge for half the price and the same result. Another reason to choose it over the beauty blender is that it is very handy during eye makeup. You can use the slopy edge to sharpen the eyeshadow around the outer corner of the eye to give a graphic look. Or you can even lift up the eyeliner with the angled side to make it edgy.


Sigma Passionately Pink Brush Set Review

Sigma Passionately Pink Eye Brush Set Review

What eye brushes are a must-have

If you want your eye makeup to look professional, the key is to always invest in good brushes! Most of the time, you only need two brushes to achieve your eye look; a blending brush and a smudging brush. Sometimes, you might also need a blending brush, and a shading brush to achieve a certain eye look. These three essential brushes are enough to achieve any eye look you want.


The set I am about to review includes all those three essential brushes to achieve any eye look you want. If I ever have to shop for makeup brushes, I would get myself Sephora or Sigma. I have yet to receive my stock of Sephora brushes. Sigma brushes are comparable to MAC and can be easily substituted. Today the review would be on Sigma's eye brushes best-sellers. I would show you two eye shadow blending brushes and one shading brush, which I bought in a brush set. The exclusive edition set is the "Sigma Passionately Pink Brush Set" which includes the three brushes with pink handles, and also a shimmery pink travel makeup bag to house those brushes. Another reason the set is pink in color was Sigma’s initiative to educate women on breast health; more information on their website in case you are interested.

Sigma has come a long way in making one of the best eye brushes. It is an innovative brand that makes very high-quality brushes that are worth the price. Sigma claims their fibers are the highest quality, vegan, synthetic, and antimicrobial. The ferrule and handles are very durable, double-threaded, and waterproof. You can wash them a thousand times and they would still remain new. The brand also offers a two-year warranty which is unheard of. Although I got their brushes in the set you can buy them individually or in a similar set. I highly recommend you try them. I promise you would not be disappointed. Even other than the set, these brushes are available separately for you to buy as well. Now moving on to the three best Sigma eyeshadow brushes in the set (from left to right).


E40 Tapered Blending

E40 Tapered Blending brush is a cult classic for both pros and beginners. The brush is tapered, rounder, very light, and fluffy. It does many things. It softens and blends harsh eye shadow lines. It is used for blowing out the color across the entire lid or crease for a diffused finish. It is also used to transition color on the crease, and highlight the brow bone. Also, you must try it for nose contouring which I always do, and I like using this brush for the purpose. This brush is fluffier than E25 to give sheer to medium coverage. It is yet comparable to E35, which is even fluffier but precise and denser. I have seen some people with bigger eyes preferring E35 over E40. But whichever brush you choose out of the two, both are perfection. The brush retails for 17 USD.


E25 Blending

Another cult favorite and mainly a crease blending brush, the E25 Blending brush is a multi-tasker. It applies and combines color by using the flat side to place the color and the tip to blend it. It is a fluffy rounded brush yet slightly pinched, which makes it dense. The density is what gives the brush a precise and controlled application. This one is exceptionally good for blending every type of cream-based eye shadow, be it in a pot or stick. You can use it to put a dark color on the lid, or in the outer corner, or crease, and then blend the edges for the perfect eye look. The brush gives sheer to medium coverage. It can also be used for nose contouring. It retails for 16 USD.


E55 Eye Shading

The bristles of the E55 Eye Shading brush are smaller than the above brushes, slightly flat and squarish, and dense for precisely placing the color evenly across the entire lid. This brush gives medium to full coverage. You can also use it for putting primer, cream, and powder shades to add depth to the eye. This brush is suitable for both bigger and hooded eyes. The tip for hooded eyes is to use it horizontally to pack color, and vertically to blend any harsh lines. The brush retails for 16 USD.

Having said all that I would like you to know that these brushes are universally fit for most eye shapes. I mentioned at the beginning that I am waiting for my Sephora stock for a few selected brushes I needed for my hooded eyes and small lid space. If this relates to you then know that smaller brushes would do a better job to achieve any kind of eye look on hooded eyes.
