Sigma Make Me Cool 12 Brush Kit - Review

Sigma Make Me Cool 12 Brush Kit - Review

Thursday, April 28, 2011 Sara Hassan , 158 Comments

I am sure you have all heard of the famous "Make me up" kits by Sigma. This post contains a review and a giveaway.


Sigma Make Me Cool 12 Brush Kit 
12 professional quality brushes for a complete makeover! Everything you need to apply makeup to eyes and face.


"Make me up" collection comes in FOUR beautiful colors - Black, Puple, Coral and Aqua


Large Powder - F30
Very dense with a rounded top. Ideal to apply powder products on face and body. Natural bristles.

Duo Fibre - F50
 Specially designed to generate an airbrushed ™ finish when used to apply liquid foundation. It can also be used to apply blush, highlight shades and loose pigments. Blend of synthetic and natural bristles.

Large Angled Contour - F40
The angled shape makes this brush ideal to apply blush or contour shades. Natural bristles.



Foundation - F60 
Can be used to apply liquid or cream foundation. It is also recommended to apply moisturizers and conceal large areas. Synthetic bristles.

Concealer - F70 

The rounded, tapered, flat shape makes this brush ideal to conceal the under eye area. It is also recommended for a precise application in small areas. Synthetic bristles.


Eye Shading - E55 
Soft and dense with a rounded finish. Can be used to apply pressed or loose eye shadows and pigments. Ideal to build intense color on the eyelid. Natural bristles.

Tapered Blending - E40 
Rounded and tapered top. Specially designed to apply and blend color on the crease. Natural bristles.

Medium Angled Shading - E70 
Angled, tapered, flat top. Ideal to apply highlight shades underneath the eyebrow and on the inner corners. It can also be used for a precise application of darker shades on the crease area. Natural bristles.

Large Shader - E60 
Flat shape is ideal for application of cream formulas and eye shadow primers. It also works great with loose eye shadows or pigments. Can be used to apply color all over the lid or precisely on the lash line. Natural bristles.


Eyeliner - E05
An extra-fine tipped synthetic fiber brush that delivers a precise, firm, even stroke to line the eyes.

Pencil - E30
Precise application of color on the crease, outer corner, and upper and lower lash line. Also ideal to smudge out pencil liner. Natural bristles.

Small Angle - E65
Essential for the application of gel or cream eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line. This brush is also excellent for filling out the eyebrows. Synthetic bristles.

My thoughts
I'd say that these are indeed high quality brushes. I believe, the quality of brushes matters a lot no matter how good you are, you won't be able to deliver perfectly if the brushes you've used aren't good enough (at least that's what I have experienced).

The brushes are soft and really fun to work with. The container especially is very useful. I have never owned any brush set that would come in a container like this. I love it because I can carry it anywhere around without having to worry about where I'd keep them safe. I love the color and the packaging, it is "COOL". The brushes are easy to clean and I did not notice any shedding except when F40 came, I noticed some shedding but that didn't keep on happening.

The funny thing that I noticed about some brushes (with natural bristles) is the smell. They smell like "goat" and honestly, this is not the kind of smell anybody would like. But don't you worry because after washing them three to four times, the weird smell was gone.

My favorite brushes are E40, E65, E55 and F30.

Overall, I love this kit - very handy and fun. The Make Me Cool 12 Brush kit is priced $99. You can get yours from Sigma's website HERE. Sigma ships worldwide.

  22. Oh gosh, I would like to win this sigma brushes, especially because I live in country where brushes aren't available at all, only brushes for kids, for Barbie makeup and similar, not the real ones. And this would be the great thing for me just because I'm new at this and I wanna be so good, cos I'm 20 years old and really into make up. I tried to ordered it online, but it turned out that shipping is more expensive in my country that products itself so I couldn't bought it!
    Anyway... I wish to all girls luck and to win this!
    And thank you for such a great giveaway!
