The kits are be available in Black (Make Me Classy), Aqua (Make Me Cool), Coral (Make Me Blush) and Purple (Make Me Crazy).

Sigma Makeup Me Up Review

This is my first Make Me Cool Aqua brush set and I absolutely love it! The color is clean, professional, yet super adorable. The size of the brush holder and the brushes is perfect for travel and convenient to store on a small vanity. Although the kit design (seven brushes in the Sigma brush holder) is similar to Sigma's Limited Edition Cities Collection (read full review here), the included brushes are very different. I am a collector of Limited Edition items, but I have to say that I find this brush set personally more practical.

The main difference for me are the E30 Pencil, E65 Small Angle and F60 Foundation brushes. The E30 has always been my favorite eyeshadow brush. I use it add color to creases, blend in the shadows, add shadows to the upper and lower lash line, contour the outer v, etc. I can always pack on eyeshadows with my fingers, but this brush is the only one that gets the whole job done. My favorite Sigma Eyeshadow Palette is Bare mostly because this brush is included! I am also very excited to see the E65 added to this kit for I am an eyeliner kind of girl. The E65 is great for gel liners, cream liners, and even powder liners. It's firm without being rough and thin enough to create well defined lines. As for the F60: who doesn't like the practical, regular-application foundation brush? I do! It's great for natural application, especially when your foundation matches your skin tone well. You can cover up pigmentation while maintaining a natural, effortless look.

Sigma Travel Brushes Collection Review

What I want to see? More travel brush options! I would love to be able to customize my lovely travel kit. Perhaps one day, Sigma will release individual color brushes or individual travel brushes. ;)

  8. Hi Katherine, I've been going through your old posts as I'm still interested in the Sigma travel brushes. I may have mentioned it before, but I like shorter handled brushes. My question this time is about the natural vs synthetic bristles. I just discovered that using a natural-bristle brush works SO MUCH better on my powder blush than my regular synthetic brush. I started researching the difference between natural and synthetic bristles and learned that the former is usually recommended for powder products.

    Seeing how you have experience with both the Bunny and Make Me Up brushes, I was wondering if you have noticed the same with Sigma brushes. I am really interested in the F40 for applying blush, but now I'm torn between the Bunny and the MMU sets. I like the softness and cruelty-free nature of the Bunny set, but if the MMU set will give me better performance with powder products (i.e. virtually all my makeup) then I should probably go with the MMU.

    Sorry for the essay... I was going to email you directly but this was easier somehow. :P

    ps Do you know if Sigma is going to sell their travel brushes individually? I tweeted them but they haven't responded. If I could, I'd get the F40 and F35. Thanks for your time!
