Sigma Mrs. Bunny Travel Kit Review, Part 2: Face Brushes and Overall Thoughts

Here's Part 2 of my Sigma Mrs. Bunny Travel Kit Review featuring the 3 face brushes you receive in the kit.  If you haven't read it yet, check out Part 1 featuring the eye brushes.  Read on for the rest of the review and my closing thoughts on the whole kit!

Sigma Bunny F40 Large Angled Contour Brush

The F40 Large Angled Contour Brush is meant for applying blush and contouring shades to your cheeks.  I find it also works very well for bronzing.  I already have 2 other brushes  like this one and I have to say that this one doesn't outshine them.  That's not to say it isn't really good, it just doesn't bring anything different to my collection, but at least now I have another backup.

Sigma Bunny F30 Large Powder Brush

The F30 Large Powder Brush is, hands down, my favorite brush of the entire kit!  Even though it says large, the size of this brush is not overwhelming:  it's perfect.  I don't have another brush like this which I think is the reason I love it so much.  I think it's the perfect balance of fluffiness and density for a light-medium application of powder foundation.  My other powder brushes are either on the fluffier side (good for bronzers/blushes/setting powders but doesn't apply enough powder foundation) or on the denser side (good for liquid/cream foundations or fuller coverage powder application but applies too much powder foundation than I need).  This is the best of both worlds for me and I'm very happy to own this.

Sigma Bunny F60 Foundation Brush
The F60 Foundation Brush has the typical style of normal paint-brush type foundation brushes.  I'm not a fan of these types of brushes, usually opting for buffer brushes to apply my foundation.  But despite my personal preference I do think this brush is better than most of the foundation brushes I've tried like it.  The bristles on the top are much softer than the brushes of normal foundation brushes and makes for easier blending and a less scratchy application.

Sigma Mrs. Bunny Travel Kit
Overall, I think the Sigma Mrs. Bunny Travel Kit is well worth the money.  It retails for $59, which boils down to less than $8.50 a brush.  I got the Mrs. Bunny Kit which is blue and pink, but if that's not your thing they also have a Mr. Bunny Kit that sports black packaging.  It also comes with a nifty container that allows for convenient, mess-free protective storage when you're on the go and comes apart into 2 containers for when your brushes are just chilling on your vanity.  Being a travel kit, the handles are a bit shorter than Sigma's regular size (but are by no means miniature), but the actual brush part is the same quality to expect from the rest of their brushes.  It comes with a good selection of brushes to allow you to complete the best of looks whether you're on vacation of just looking for brushes to use at home.

I honestly think highly of all the brushes, with the only reason for my lack of extreme enthusiasm being that my brush collection is so large that it's pretty hard to surprise me at this point.  I really don't have anything negative to say about any of them, my favorites being the Powder Brush, Small Angle Liner Brush, and the Eye Shading Brush so far.  And I definitely give an honorable mention to the foundation brush.  Even though I personally don't like that style brush, I think those that do will be very impressed by it.

Bottom Line:  Amber Likes!

How do you think Sigma brushes stack up to more expensive brushes?


  1. are these softer than ecotools or the too faced ones?

    1. I haven't tried Too Faced brushes so I can't comment on them but I would say these are maybe just a bit softer that Ecotools. But as Ecotools are already very soft the difference is not that significant.

      I would also say that Real Techniques brushes, (which are owned by the same company as Ecotools), are just as soft or softer than Sigma.

    2. I also thought that ecotools are the most soft brushes but after I used the ones from models own and too faced I found out that the ecotools blusher brush and the powder brush were a bit prickly in comparision. They were irritationg my skin.

      If these are just a bit softer than ecotools I will save the money then. thanks.
