Awesome $10 Dupes for Sigma Brush Sets?!

No comments :
These brushes are amazing, and all 10 of them came as one set. Do they look familiar? Read on to find out why I'm so excited about these!!

A few weeks ago I was watching one of Stacey Brennan's videos on YouTube. She was doing a haul and showed some brushes she ordered off of eBay and how Sigma just uses mass-produced brushes from China. The ones she got were the same thing, just with no name printed on them. I've been looking at Sigma brushes for a while, I just couldn't bring myself to spend $80 and up on a set of a few brushes. So when I saw that, I immediately went to eBay and found some.
All you have to do is type in "synthetic brush set" and they will pop up. There are a bunch of different sellers, most of them in China, but you can set your search to "US only" and there are US sellers as well so you won't have to wait a long time for shipping. These brushes can be bought individually as far as I can tell, but I opted to go for the set. With shipping it cost me $13. FOR 10 BRUSHES!! It's crazy! I was skeptical at first, but as soon as I had them in my hands and felt the quality, it blew my mind that they were so cheap. I've had them for a few weeks now, and even with washing them a few times they're still amazing. So let's look at the brushes you get with this set...

This is an angled brush, great for bronzing the sides of the nose and smaller areas on the face:

This is a flat angled brush, again great for concealer just about anywhere:

This is a flat top brush, perfect for stippling on concealer. I especially love this with liquid concealers, like the Kat Von D one. It has made blending concealer a breeze, I don't know where this brush has been all my life!!

This is a round brush, great for applying eyeshadow bases/blending them out, or again, concealer! I also like it to set my under eye concealer with powder.

This is a tapered brush, ideal for getting concealer in areas like around your nose, chin and mouth.

Now for the face brushes.The round kabuki is great for buffing:

There's a tapered kabuki for cream and liquid foundation, especially for the harder-to-reach contours of your face.

The angled kabuki, great for applying and buffing out cream blushes or bronzers:

The flat angled kabuki, another great foundation brush:

And last, the flat kabuki. This is great for covering larger areas with liquid or cream products:

These brushes are amazingly soft. They are also very densely packed, so they not only feel amazing, but pick up a good amount of product so you don't have to dip into things forcefully or swirl it around in the product a million times to get anything out of it. I've had them for a few weeks now and I waited this long to write my review for them because I wanted to get a feel for each one and be able to play around with them for long enough. I really, really love them and for the price you can't beat them!
