The Best Sigma Eye Brush


I have found my favorite eye brush- Sigma E45. How have I lived without this brush for so long?!

Description:
Small domed brush with highly tapered tip. Versatile, this brush can be used to precisely apply and blend intense colors to the crease area.


What I like about it:
It is so versatile! Most of the time, it's the only brush I use- lids, crease, lower lash line, brow bone, inner corners. A real time-saver!
  It is very soft & blends eyeshadow on the crease in a jiffy. Like the description by Sigma, it can be used to precisely apply & blend eyeshadow in the crease. It's like 2 brushes in 1.
It just...fits. I have a small lid area and it's the right size for it.
I have washed it 3 times, and it did not shed nor bled.
Inexpensive considering how versatile it is.

*It blends eyeshadow primer, like MAC Paintpots, but it doesn't blend cream eyeshadows well, so I wouldn't it for cream eyeshadows.

Care:
Just make sure that you re-shape it properly when drying it after washing, coz it has a tendency to splay out too much, hence losing the tapered tip. It was a lot more pointy when it was new.



It is smaller than my pinky finger. It's is also smaller and thinner than The Sigma E40. Here's a comparison between the two...

E45 & E40

Available at sigma.com for $9 (Rs.405). They ship internationally.

Rating: ♥♥♥♥4.5/5. I think I need  another one.

What's your  go-to eye brush?

  8. E45 is more versatile as u said earlier it helps to apply color on crease and helps in blending.

    E40 is just helpful for blending .
    AM I right???

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
