Sigma is a brand that has quickly become popular for replicating Mac's brushes. A Mac 187 brush is known as a SS187. Their prices are much more affordable making it more appealing to those trying to save money.
But, the big question is, how good is their quality when priced so low?
There are 12 brushes in the kit priced at $69 which works out at roughly £45. A bargain when you know that a face brush from Mac is approx £30.
The Sigma 168 brush circumference was much smaller than the Mac 168 initially but after washing it expanded in size. With the Sigma 168 I haven't detected a difference in application from the Mac. The hairs are as soft as Mac and overall a great dupe.
The Sigma 187 is a different story, almost every time I wash it blue dye leaks into my sink. The hairs shed even more than the Mac 187 which is very disappointing.
The Sigma 209 is a perfect eyeliner brush, you can see in the picture below how tapered the end is, I love this brush so much that I actually got rid of my Mac one.
One of my favourite Sigma brushes is definitely the SS224, perfect eyeblening brush. I also like the SS150, it's soft and I can use it for multiple things. I use it mainly to apply powder and squeeze the bristles for angular application of blush, bronzer and highlight. However, this brush does shed, which is SO annoying but this happens with even my Mac brushes so I can't complain too much. I have also noticed some blue dye leaking from this one when I wash it too.
