Get some great brushes at ObsessedLook.com

Did you know that you can get Sigma brushes here in Canada? Shipped free? No? Neither did I! Obsessed Look, sister site to Nail Polish Canada is now carrying Sigma brushes! The prices are only like a two dollars more than Sigma’s US site and the shipping is free in Canada. Plus Obsessed Look has tons of other brands, like TheBalm, Joico, Real Techniques and Cult Nails.

Today I am reviewing two Sigma brushes, the E40 – Tapered Blending brush and the E45 – Small Tapered Blending brush**.

The E40 Tapered Blending brush is this makeupnut’s dream blending brush. This is the blending brush you want for the crease area to softly and expertly blend out those mid-tone crease shadows. The bristles are long and ‘floppy’. Some may say fluffy but I think it is more floppy. The E40 has enough density to plop the shadow down but enough give in it to move the shadow around diffusing the colour.
Blending process

This is my crease shadow process: Dab the tip of the brush in the shadow, dab on the outer area of the crease. Then I do the windshield wiper (motion), windshield wiper, windshield wiper and then circle, circle, circle, circle, circle. I usually do this process around 3 times until the color is just how I want it.

The E45 Small Tapered Blending brush has more of a pointed tip. It is a lot smaller than the E40 but the tip comes into a soft point. When you first get it, it seems like it would be super pointy by as soon as you wash it, the tip softens out. I think this brush is great for applying more concentrated color to the crease (a defined crease) or the outer V of the eye. One thing to note, while this brush smoked out the shadow under my eye quite well, it felt a little prickly for that tender area. So I will keep it to the crease area. I did have some shedding with this brush; a couple hairs came out when I first washed it.

The handles of these brushes seem quite sturdy and have a nice non-slippy lacquer finish. They are clearly labeled and I love the holographic font.  I do recommend the E40 as a must have brush.

To buy the brushes from Sigma, I would have paid $30 US for the brushes, shipping (around $10) plus the USD/Canadian conversion. BUT through ObsessedLook.ca, those same brushes would be $33.98 plus GST.  BooYAH easy to choose where to get them from right?
