So as an early birthday gift to my self I ordered the Make Me Crazy 12 piece purple brush set, the Bare palette, the E20 short shader brush and the E45 small tapered blending brush. I had a 10% discount code I used to save on my order and even with that I definitely got a lot for my money! And so that you know, all thoughts and opinions on these brushes and products are my on... I paid for all products mentioned with my own money.
First thing I will touch on is the Bare palette. This palette is pretty awesome and I can't wait to order the Dare and Flare palette's. The eye shadow palette's contain 8 shadows and a dual ended brush, each palette's brush is different and colored to match the palette. The Bare palette has 4 matte shades and 4 shimmer shades. The dual brush has the E30 pencil brush and the E25 blending brush.

The E45 and E20 are part of the Premium Professional kit, however I really didn't want all of those brushes. The E45 is the small tapered blending brush and is ideal for precisely applying shadow to the crease. The E20 is the short shader brush and is perfect for applying shadow to the lid or smudging along the lash lines. Each eye brush is $9, where as the face brushes range from $14-$19 each.

|Face Brushes - From Bottom to Top: F70, F40, F60, F30, and F50|

Sigma was introduced to me by YouTube makeup guru Tiffany from MakeupByTiffanyD. She is a firm believer in Sigma and faithfully uses these brushes. I have been obsessing over these brushes and when looking at the cost of the brushes, whether individually or in a set, it was still cheaper than MAC. The same brushes I bought from Sigma for $99 would have cost me more than $300, plus I got a container to store my brushes in!
So if you don't know who Sigma is, check them out! If you own Sigma brushes or products, what are your favorites?
Until next time xo Shannon!
