Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki Brush VS beautyblender

I am a fan of a flawless skin base and my research for the best application tool was a never ending battle. Until I met F80 Flat Kabuki Brush from Sigma Beauty and beautyblender.

The F80 Flat Kabuki Brush has a flat top head with really dense and soft synthetic fibers. It is recommended for applying and blending liquid and cream products to flat areas of the face such as the forehead and cheeks.

I have used the F80 Flat Kabuki Brush quite a long time now and I have to say it does what it promises. It gives you that flawless finish without any streak marks or cakey patches. Instead of picking the liquid foundation with the brush, I usually apply small dots on my face and blend it with the F80. The dense bristles tend to absorb quite a lot of product and that way the waste is minimised. I totally love the finished result and the fact that I don't need a lot of time buffing it. The only downside is that F80 needs a little bit of extra time cleaning it due to its dense fibers. Remember to always let your brushes dry with the bristles down and never use a hairdryer. Just let them dry naturally.  

The beautyblender came to my hands lately and it has amazed me. I have watched so many youtubers using it so I had to try it myself. I bought the black one which is designed for professionals just because I like the colour more than pink (great reason).


Beautyblender sponges should be used damp with liquid products in order to absorb the excess product and dry with minerals and powders. Its egg shape has multiple uses, the round surface for tapping the liquid/cream products onto your face and the pointed one for under-eye concealer or the sides of your nose. In order to distribute the coverage evenly you can roll the sides of the beautyblender. If you have long nails you should be extra careful because it's very soft and you might tear it. Cleaning the beautyblender does not really differ from other brushes, just soak it in water, use a mild shampoo/brush cleanser and rinse. Let it dry naturally.
The final verdict. I love both of them! Achieving an airbrushed and flawless look is no more a privillege of professionals.They both deserve the investment and hype. You can find the F80 Flat Kabuki Brush on Sigmabeauty and the original beautyblender on Sephora or online on BeautyBay.

What's your favourite application tool? I'd love to know!
