LATEST BEAUTY BUYS
Lately I’ve been browsing the Sigma website quite a bit and I just had to pick up a few new items!!
I’ve had my eye on the Sigma ‘Precision’ brushes; I’m all about creating a flawless face, and these brushes allow you to create precise contours and highlights as necessary. I picked up the P84 Precision Angled with the intention of using it as an under eye concealer brush (the density of the brush is perfect for laying down a nice opaque concealer), but I found another use for it: You know how I love to contour the crap out of my nose?? This brush is the perfect tool for just that. I’m able to create extremely detailed contours without looking stripy. I’m so happy with this brush! I just might explore more of the Precision line…
Of course I had to pick up the highly touted Sigma Eye Shadow Base. I hadn’t tried them yet so I picked up just one to see if I’d like it. The verdict?? I LOVE it. First of all, the color I got is beautiful for brown eyes. I bought Pose; it’s a chocolatey taupe shade with just the slightest hint of shimmer. I actually wore the base by itself with just eyeliner and mascara, and it looked like a complete, polished look! It’s the perfect color to use if you want to create something more dramatic but don’t want to put too much extra time and effort into it. I think I’ll pick up a few more colors, too!
Lastly, I was really curious about the Sigma Brow Pencil. Their version comes in a two sided pencil: One side is a bit darker, meant for medium to dark hair, and the other side is a lighter ash color for light/medium hair. For me, this pencil is genius! I actually ended up using both sides; For the ends of my eyebrows, I typically need the color to be a bit darker so that it actually shows and makes my eyebrows appear longer. But for the areas above my eyebrows and closer to the inner corners, I don’t want such a harsh color because it makes the brows far too strong. This way, I was able to use the darker color on my ends, and the lighter color to softly fill in the inner parts of my brows and it worked wonderfully. I also like the consistency of the pencil, they’re perfect for brows.
So there are my latest goodies! More shopping updates to come.
