Sigma Beauty started in 2009 with a set of synthetic, high-quality makeup brushes that didn’t shed and applied makeup like a dream. YouTube “beauty gurus” raved about them and my teenage heart lusted for these affordable tools (but alas, I did not have a credit card). Ten years later, I’m a beauty editor who owns dozens of these cruelty-free babies and couldn’t recommend them more.
While the brand has expanded into color cosmetics and other kinds of tools, the makeup brushes are still the crowning jewel of the collection. Each brush is as soft as velvet and blends in powder, liquid, and cream products easily. Sigma has tons of brushes available (many of which are exceptional, in my opinion), but I’ve narrowed down the brand’s massive selection to 15 I think everyone should own.
Check out the picks, ahead.
