Makeup Brushes

My current makeup brushes (Face Secrets from Sally's) are at their end. It feels like I am using sandpaper to put on my makeup (especially my powder and fan brush). I was waiting as long as I possibly could to get new ones because money is tight these days. To be fair, my brushes did last about 2 years, and I wouldn't say I cleaned them as properly as they should have been cleaned.
After TONS of research, reading reviews, watching youtube videos, etc., I've decided on the Sigma brushes. Apparently they are the best, even above MAC. I don't know this for fact, just from what I've researched.
They aren't cheap, but I'm willing to spend the money because I'm sure they will last and my makeup application is important to me.
I was going to get this black set that comes with the brush roll ($99):



But then I saw that it comes in PINK!!! (Although I do wish it were more of a hot-pink... I'm so picky, lol)


I just ordered them on Amazon and I can't wait to get them!!!!!

Also while I was checking reviews on things, I found a few other goodies I want to try. Ardell Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator ($4.78) has pretty good reviews. It's very inexpensive, so I'm going to give it a try:

Also, Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion ($18):

I've always wanted to try this Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Regenerating Serum ($16), and after reading the reviews I'm going to give it a go:


I'm kind of obsessed with makeup and skin care these days. There are sooo many things I want to try, but I'll just have to take baby steps. :) If you have any favorites of makeup or skin care products or whatever, let me know! I'm open to try anything!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! So I was JUST about to hit submit on my order when I decided to check out one more thing. I was looking through the travel kits of the Sigma brushes and I found this!!:


They come in hot pink and they are more of what I wanted (3 face brushes) and less of what I don't need (all those eye bruhes). PLUS, it's only $59! YAY!!!!

I just ordered my first Sigma brush and I'm excited to try it. Oscar's sister works for MAC so I got a ton of their brushes for super cheap and I love them, but at full price they are expensive. I love the UDPP. It really keeps your eyeshadow in place. Make sure to look for a video on Youtube on how to get to all the product. The design of the tube means a lot gets stuck in the crevices. I hear they are going to redesign it to avoid that in the future though.

This is so random but I found this post through googling Sigma brushes. I bought the same kit you bought and I LOVE IT!!!! The brushes are so amazing. I previously used Sonia Kashuk's brushes from Target. I heard they worked good so I used them and they were okay. Now that I have the Sigma brushes, I am never going back!
