Sigma Travel E25 Blending Brush Review/GiveAway!!

Product Description (SigmaBeauty)
Oval-shaped brush with gently chiseled sides. Blends and softens the look of powder or cream shadows. Ideal to apply eye shadow primer, base eye shadow colors, and blend harsh lines.


The bristles are very soft. The website doesn't specify whether they are synthetic or natural but based on touch and other products that Sigma offers I am very sure that the bristles are natural. This brush is dense yet flexible which is always something I look for!! If a brush is dense it allows you to better control make up application.  As the description implies, the brush is oval shaped which makes it perfect for blending in your eye crease! Other things to note are the handle and the ferrule. The handle is made from wood and the ferrule seems to be on there nice and tight!  Also, as of now I have not experienced any bristle fall out and I've been using the brush for a week and I've washed it!

The full size brush only cost $9.00!!  A brush that is comparable to this one is the famous MAC 217 which costs $22.50.  If you are not partial to a certain make up brand I believe that this a great value for a blending brush. Most drug store brands will cost about $4-$10 but most of those brushes will have a plastic handle and synthetic hair. Having said that... I think this is a remarkable value. Sigma Beauty also sells brush sets for a pretty decent price. Click here to check out other Sigma products

Blending Brush?
Okay, so most of you know why blending your make up is super important but if you are like me and are pressed for time in the morning a blending brush helps you do the blending quicker!  The idea of blending is to form a gradient between colors. Check out my pictures below if you think blending isn't necessary!!! BTW I don't think I would normally wear this look... the eyeshadows used are Flipside & Ecstacy by Urban Decay.
One lucky reader will win a new Sigma E25 travel brush!!
