Sigma F80 Review [Giveaway Closed]

Hello all, I hope you are having a fabulous Tuesday!  This might brighten it up a bit :)

I recently became a Sigma Affiliate and was kindly sent the infamous F80 Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush to review. This was my first Sigma brush and I was so excited to try it!

The brush is a really nice size; I had expected it to be much bigger judging by pictures I had seen before, however it is not too big nor too small; just the perfect size for holding.  The bristles are so soft and dense; myself, my mum and my sister just rubbed the brush over our faces when it arrived because it just felt amazing.  It looks impressive too.  Obviously appearances aren't everything, but it looks very professional.  It even caught the eye of a friend when she was visiting me.

The first day I used it, I admit, I wasn't convinced.  I was very dubious because I had never used a brush this shape to apply foundation before.  I didn't think it was particularly impressive... however this may be due to the fact that I was majorly hungover at the time and so my brain was dehydrated and not fully functioning.  However, the next day I tried it, I was sold.  I used it to apply liquid foundation, and it blends and buffs the liquid on to my skin perfectly.  It makes a little product go a long way and gives an airbrushed look; well, they do claim it is "designed to deliver a flawless make up application", and that it does!

You can purchase this brush from the Sigma website for $16 (approx. £9.70)... however, the kind people at Sigma have offered an F80 brush for me to giveway! :D
