I would go for either the 20h angled brush or the 17 round brush, the others are either too small or too big for versatile application. Round is better if you mosly apply color to the apples of your cheeks while angled is better if you apply to the highest part of your cheekbones.

Sorry, I didn't see your location!

I have the Le Pinceau Joues #7 Blush Brush and Le Contour #10 Contour Face Brush.

has anyone tried sigma brushes?
apparently theyre are very good quality cheap alternatives to mac, they even have comparisons to the 188 and 187.. which are coincidentally called the ss188 and ss187..
im thinking of asking for them for my birthday, as even though i live in the uk the postage and packaging isnt unreasonable as it is on certain other sites.. *cough* coastal scents*cough*
do you think 47.30 is a reasonable price for 12 brushes? it equals out at 3.94 per brush

^Oh my, I was coming here to post about the Sigma professional kit. They are great - very similar to MAC brushes in shape and quality, but much much cheaper. I got my set last week - it took less than ten days to arrive. I totally recommend it.

^ Ask away. I live in Brazil, and shipping cost was US$ 14, if my mind serves me right. They are very well packaged, and yes, I got the complete set, the one with 12 brushes. I must say that the powder brush sheds a little, but it's nothing to be worried about.

^ I know how you feel. But paint brushes are actually a good option to some of their makeup counterparts - I had two paint brushes doubling as concealer ones before I bought one from Coastal Scents. But it is indeed much better to have a proper set when you can afford it.

I got a couple of sigma brushes...I'm now thinking about ordering a full set. I got the ss239 which i love! The ss188 is just ok for me right now. Its fraying a bit. will wash and reshape again

ahh i'm glad others are buying the sigma set and are happy with it! i bought the full professional kit yesterday after a lot of uhmming and ahhing about spending a chunk of money - but i figured i may as well buy them all now, rather than one by one which would end up more expensive. hope i like them and get to grips with them okay - i'm definitely no brush expert

me too, i think iv decided, on the website theres a whole load of videos explaining how to use each one
ive worked out that buying a smaller set isnt even going to be much cheaper at 30 something so i mayaswell pay 10 extra and get the larger full set

very excited about ordering and recieving them!
