Sigma Essential Brush Kit: Overview

I am so excited I finally got my hands on some Sigma brushes for Christmas! I got the 12 brush kit, without the brush roll because I already own one and didn't think it was necessary. Th kit was $89.00 (+ tax) at www.sigmabeauty.com.

I love these brushes. After all the talk that has been going around about these, I had to see what it was all about. I honestly don't know how i made it this long without owning these.  They are super soft and make applying makeup effortless. I own a couple MAC brushes and I can honestly say I find the quality of the sigma brushes better. They feel more sturdy and in my opinion they are better then any brush I have used. Instead of going to the drugstore or buying a different MAC brush here and there to build a collection like I was doing I wish i would have just purchased this kit from the start. It has all the "essential" brushes you could need!
