maybe i need to learn how to use it

I can’t figure out what to use it for… It’s super soft – I’ll have to check on youtube for some tutorials and recos.

Amazing Brush!

I love my Sigma Brushes, I have had no problems with shedding, etc. I first purchased the Tapered Highlighter and it worked exactly as I’d hoped it would. Then I purchased this one mostly for powders & blushes. The shape allows you to go right under the eyes, around the hair line & nose. Very easy to wash with a good brush cleanser, I recommend Sigma’s Dry N Shape, keeps your brushes in amazing condition & quickly dries them in perfect shape. This brush is also nice for contouring & highlighting as well. This one is a must have in your brush arsenal! One thing for Sigma…PLEASE make a good Fan Brush available for single sale! I can only find the one in an expensive kit and would love one similar to the MAC 187!!

Love this Brush

I had been wanting this brush for the longest time. Ever since I started doing my own makeup it looked so funky and fresh. It came faster than I thought being that I live in Japan. I use it all the time to apply my highlighter. When washed the hairs don’t fall or come out. I would buy this brush again.Thank-you

Amazing For Foundation Application

I was using my Sigma F80 to apply my liquid foundation when I discovered this new brush had come out. This contours the face perfectly, so easy to get right under eyes, around the hair line & around the nose. I place the product on the back of my hand, dab the brush in & swirl onto my face. Never put directly on the brush as it will sink into it & waste foundation. I love this brush! Very densely packed hair, no shedding and Sigma brushes last a long time when cared for properly. I plan to get the P88 for concealer application, same brush in a smaller size for precision coverage. Sigma now has included the F88 in a kit with the F80, 82, 84 & 86, if you don’t own those brushes I suggest purchasing the kit, they are all amazing & have many uses! Thanks for another winning brush, Sigma! *This is my own opinion, I was not influenced in any way to write it.*

Good results but not durable

I bought this brush 8 weeks ago and was pretty happy with it till the brush began to shed! In about 4 more uses (I wash them twice a week) the whole silver metal casing that holds the hair fell off. I’d love to use it again because the results are brilliant but paying another $20 for 1 brush with just two months of usage is not worth it for me. I wouldn’t recommend this brand if you use your brushes often either as they’re pricey. I’m still giving it 4 stars because it was amazing while it lasted.

GREAT foundation brush!

The last brush I purchased to apply liquid foundation was from Clinique. This SIGMA angled brush is far better! It’s the best brush I’ve used!! It’s thick, soft (but firm enough to hold the foundation) and the makeup doesn’t sink into the brush and get wasted. Perfect for the countours of your face! I’m not a pro at using a brush to apply foundation, but this brush makes it quick and easy, and leaves absolutely no streaks. Plus it’s perfect to use for stippling if you want!

good multitasking brush

i use this to apply concealer/corrector under my eyes and i no longer have a cakey appearance under my eyes or settling into fine lines because this brush stops me from adding to much product. after concealer i use this brush to set my under eyes with setting powder. the brush is really dense and any products i use sets on top on the bristles rather than soak inside the brush this insures im not wasting any product. i can also use this to highlight my face with concealer it gives me a blended look effortlessly and then set it with a highlighting powder if you likei have not lost and bristles and washing the brush is so easy the color does not bleed at all and it dries in less than day when i leave it by the window to air dryi dont use any other brush since getting this one to apply concealer under my eyes its basically my holy grailas for contouring it does work for its purpose it gives you a nice blended look of course and its very precise for size of it i dont usually contour that much sometimes i want just a nice bronzy look so i dont use this brush for that only for under my eyesif you have any specific questions feel free to comment below i will be happy to answer

FAVORITE NEW BRUSH

I was very pleased with my order. Within a week of ordering I received it, the shipping was extremely fast. The brush was nicely packaged and none of the bristles were damaged. I always apply concealer under my eyes with my finger and I love that this brush mimics exactly that. It leaves a flawless finish and packs product in wrinkles nicely. I also use it for blemishes or any slight skin imperfections and it works wonderfully on that as well. This is my new favorite brush!

Too fat and stiff

I like Sigma brushes and have three of the large Kabuki brushes that I use and adore. But I’m not sure what this one is meant to be used for. I bought it to blend/apply cream eyeshadow but it is too big and stiff to do a good job of it. It is also too stiff to apply concealer especially around the eye area — too much tugging on the skin. So unless there is another use I am not thinking of, I recommend passing on this brush!

The best contour, sculpting and bronzing brush

I was using Benefit’s, Hoola bronzing powder brush. Now that I finally got this one there’s really no contest. The longer handle makes it nice and easy where as the Benefit’s brush handle is very small. Benefit’s brush bristles are set wider (more flared out) Nars is not even a finger width making it easy to chisel out that contour, turn to the side and blend it out, using this for sculpting out the face is made simple. The bristles are incredibly soft and transfer of color from brush to face is flawless! If you want a visual demonstration there’s quite a few reviews on this brush on YouTube. Btw, I’ve been waiting for this brush for months! All stores that carry this brush including Nars were on back order and wasn’t sure if it was coming back. Whew, love it! I’m probably thinking I need another just to be on safe side. Which if push comes to shove, the Benefit’s complimentary brush does just as well if you use the one side to sculpt and flat to blend.I also tried the Illemasqua’s Blush Up Brush. I read reviews how dense the brush is but thought it’d be great for contouring, but my thoughts on it is if you were using creams to sculpt (flat and very dense) this brush would be good but you’d need to have your contouring skills down in order to make it happen, just saying. Not for a heavy handed application for sure when using illemasqua’s. Hope this helps!

Amazing brush!

This brush works amazingly for contouring! The flat head gives you the perfect line to begin the contouring of your cheek. And when you’re ready to blend, you just wiggle the brush a little, and you have the perfect contour. I’m a makeup artist, and I’ve used a few different brushes for contouring. Before I got this one I always liked to use a large angled brush, it worked well, but this NARS brush is now my ‘go to’ brush. A friend of mine has the MAC brush that’s very similar to this one, and we tried them out together and got the same result. This brush is half the price of the MAC brush and works just as good! It’s also a great brush for people that are just beginning to learn how to contour their face. It’s so easy to use. FYI- if there are any beginners looking into purchasing this brush, Jaclyn Hill has a great video on YouTube using this brush for a contouring tutorial. So definitely check that out and you’ll see just how easy it is. I highly recommend this brush as well as other NARS products!

NARS Ita Long handle brush

I really like this brush, I use Only for contour on cheek hollows, forehead and neck/decollate. The hair is not as soft but has just the right amount of stiffness to it, which I actually was hoping for b/c I am not using it for any delicate areas on the face, so I didn’t want it to be too soft. Overall I am happy with it, got the one with the long handle, my only concern is that I hope it wont shed to much. Ive washed it and have used it for a couple weeks now and has shed 2 hairs…I hope it was just breaking in and it will stop now. 🙂

LOVE this brush.

I was apprehensive to buy this brush because of the price, but it is worth every penny. I have used a variety of brushes from MAC to drugstore brands, and I’m always finding that the bristles fall out and I have little black hairs all over my face. This is not the case with the Sigma Large Angled Contour Brush.I use this brush to apply my bronzer, but I think it would also work great for blush and blending.Another plus to the Sigma brush is that after washing it will retain its original shape and softness. I’ve had the brush for several months, and I anticipate it will hold up for years with a little TLC.Highly recommend!

The Brush

I like the brush ok. The only thing is that I had problems getting inbetween my eyebrows and the little area at the top of my nose. I accidently got peel in my eyes. I learned I wont try that area again with the brush.

What I Expected

I was looking for a fan brush to apply a glycolic peel. The brush let’s me easily apply the product to my face. The downside is the brush is too wide to evenly place the product on my nose and between brows. I’ve learned to use one end of the brush for smaller places.

Better than a 217

This is the second time I’ve purchased the Sigma e25(I was always looking for a clean one) and I have the MAC 217 but I find myself reaching for the e25 much more. I did have some trouble with the bristles being stained but once I switched cleansers the problem went away. I really like this for blending and for putting a light was of color all over the lid. Great brush and half the price of the others.

Great blending.

I use this brush a lot to blend out my eyeshadow after I’ve applied it with more precise brushes. It does a great job to make sure there are not harsh lines and everything is blended together. Its really great for a smoky eye. I bought 2 of them, so I always have a clean brush ready for blending. The price point is very good for a professional brush and works just as well as the MAC brushes.

GREAT Brush! Good price!

This brush works beautifully. I LOVE a good makeup brush and this one has quickly become one of my favorites. I usually pack product on with a different brush, then swirl this brush through the color for a natural, flawless, clump free finish!The bristles are soft- no scratchiness- and the brush is manufactured beautifully. Bristles rarely (dare I say, NEVER!) fall out of the brush. I highly recommend the Sigma E25 as crucial to every makeup bag!
