OMG. Thinking there was little difference between Sigma makeup brushes and other makeup brushes brands sold online. There totally is a difference. I was sent the Premium Makeup Brush kit for consideration, and what can I say, I was immediately impressed. The packaging was beautiful, the leather roll and brushes were held in a black silk organza drawstring bag. The brushes are very sleek, and there is quality that you can see and feel. The handles are solid, and have a nice glossy finish with the function and name embossed on each brush. I don't consider myself a brush expert, but I own a little of everything. This particular brush kit I wouldn't recommend for the makeup novice, but for the professional MUA, or the crazed makeup lover . It retails for $149, and you get 15 premium brushes. This premium kit has a great selection of face brushes, and my all time favorites being the F25 Tapered Face and F35 Tapered Highlighter Brush . The kit is almost complete although it doesn't contain a flat eyeshadow brush (which are a dime a dozen) or a fan brush. *Shoulder Shrugs* I'm not missing it.
After the first wash of the brushes, there was no shedding and the hairs reshaped perfectly.
