After seeing one rave review after another about Sigma brushes, I feel the need to get this out.
I have not tried the Sigma brushes and I don't plan to.
Because I don't want to support a company that simply copies another one - with both the look and name of their products.
Cheap brushes have been available for a long time, and bloggers as well as YT gurus have tried to show you the best cheap alternatives to the expensive high-end brands.
I don't think that there's anything wrong with that. At all!
However, I don't like the fact that Sigma brushes not only have been obviously inspired by the design of MAC brushes, but also have the same numbers!
You crossed a line there, Sigma!
It's like buying a fake Louis Vuitton purse because "it looks just as good as the real thing". Yeah, of course it does! It's A COPY!
If you don't want (or can't afford) to spend that much money on a purse, why not just buy another one?
That's how I feel about brushes as well. No, you don't need to have MAC brushes if you don't want to or can't afford them. As far as I know, there are plenty of cheap alternatives out there.
I have seen good reviews on brushes from both Coastal Scents and Crown Brush.
I haven't tried any of them myself, but I would love to when I get the chance.
Am I alone here, or does anyone feel the same way?
I really don't wish to offend anyone with this post, and if you have any of the Sigma brushes and are happy with them, good for you! :) I just can't bring myself to buy them :/
