Review & Giveaway: Sigma F 80 Brush! - CLOSED

I'm getting ready to go on my honeymoon, but before I go I decided to do a little review on the F 80 brush by sigma. When my husband and I got married, we never went on our honeymoon. It's been two years, but better late than never!
I did receive this brush as an affiliate, but I'm going to give you my honest review!
When the brush initially came out, I noticed its resemblance to the Everyday Minerals flat top kabuki. I love that brush! It is fantastic to use with mineral makeup, but I never though about using it for liquid foundation.
Above is the Sigma brush. It is very dense and extremely soft! It is just lovely on the face and it allow you to buff in your foundation beautifully. This is what makes this brush stand out. The bristles are made of synthetic fibers and the softness is incredible.
I have been reaching for it every time I put on tinted moisturizer, foundation, or even my Origins Vita Zing.
As you can see, the two brushes are very different lengths. The bristles of the EM brush are also a tad bit longer than the Sigma brush. I personally prefer the longer handle of the Sigma brush.
The handle of the EM brush is made from a sustainable bamboo handle.
On the left is the Sigma brush and on the right is the EM brush. They are very similar as far as denseness. Because the Sigma brush has shorter bristles, I think it's easier to use with liquid foundation. I really just made up this theory but I think the longer bristles of the EM brush allow more buffing for mineral foundation. I did try the EM brush with liquid foundation but the results were not as great as the Sigma Brush.
I hope you enjoyed this little review and comparison. I prefer the Sigma brush over the EM brush for liquid foundation. I think the long handle is sleek and it really matches all of my other sigma brushes. Also, because the brush handle is long, I'm able to store it with my other brushes. I usually just store my EM brush in a bin on my vanity.
