Sigma Make Me Cool Travel Kit Review

Good Day ladies! Finally, here it is. After so long, I now got the chance to play with my new makeup brush set from Sigma! I won one of Sigma's giveaways last year around June 2013. I Know I'm so Lucky!!! (grin) Just really wanted to let you have a closer look at the Sigma Make Me Cool Travel Kit makeup brushes.

 Product Info from Sigma Beauty
The Sigma Beauty Make Me Cool Travel Kit was specially designed for a fun yet functional makeup application. This kit contains seven travel-size brushes from our best-selling Essential Kit. The brushes come in an innovative and functional container that turns into two brush holders to keep you stylish and organized on the go.

Retail Price: $75.00

Other options available from the Travel Collection:
Make Me Crazy (Purple)
Mr. Bunny (Black with Sigmax bristles)
Mrs. Bunny (Blue with Sigmax bristles)

The kit comes with 7 travel sized brushes

Brushes Included:
F30 - Large Powder: Even powder application. Uniform blending of powder products onto the face and body.
F40 - Large Angled Contour: Subtle cheek application. Use the angle to softly contour the cheekbone. Can also be used to apply blush.
F60 - Foundation: Smooth foundation application. Apply liquid or cream products such as foundation and primer.
E40 - Tapered Blending: Soft blended crease. Using just the tips to apply color, sweep back and forth through the crease for a diffused and blended finish.
E55 - Eye Shading: Even application of color. Place color across the whole lid for an even and strong application of product.
E30 - Pencil: Soften and smoke out lines. Soften pencil liners along the top and bottom lash lines, add shadow to line the eyes or use to highlight inner corner of eyes.
E65 - Small Angle: Create precise lining. Moves fluidly and easily across the upper and lower lash lines. Use with gel, cream or powder liners.


The Make Me Cool Travel kit comes with a convenient and sturdy container which turns into brush holders. This comes very handy when you travel. Another thing that I really like about the container (apart from its gorgeous bright teal shade), it is made from leatherette material which is very easy to clean. Lastly, the size of the container is just enough for you to hold comfortably.


I already have an existing Mrs. Bunny Travel Kit which I got from Sigma two years ago (2012), you can read my full review HERE if you're interested. That's the Mrs. Bunny Travel Kit on the left and the Make Me Cool Travel Kit on the right. (What can I say, I've always loved blue hues. hehehe)

The Mrs. Bunny Travel Kit comes with the Vegan Sigmax HD fibers while the Make Me Cool Kit doesn't. Don't get me wrong, even though the Make Me Cool Travel Kit does not come with Sigmax bristles, they are still very soft and made from high quality bristles.

Here are the comparison of each of the seven brushes, so you can see their difference.








What I like about it...
* handy and convenient because the size of the brushes and container are just right.
* comes with a sturdy container, and it's very easy to clean
* the bristles are dense enough, and not flimsy at all which helps with precise application
* it has very soft bristles that helps blend products easily
* I noticed that the brushes with white bristles blends powder products like a breeze
* I also noticed that the ferule is really tight, thus holding the bristles really well so it does not shed
* the brushes are very easy to clean using my Mac brush cleanser

What I don't like...
* though there's no doubt about the quality of these brushes, $75 is expensive for only 7 brushes
* I wish that instead of the E40 they switch it to the E25 blending brush (similar to mac 217)

My rating: 4 / 5

I really love the Make Me Cool Travel kit. The quality is superb and it's currently the only brushes that I use personally. My other brushes are for clients. Would I recommend this? Yes Yes Yes! especially if you have the extra moolah to splurge on these brushes. 

Until next time.

Cheerios!

    1. @Diana, yeah it really is pricey but it's worth it. I've had my Mrs. Bunny travel kit for 2 years now and it's still in great condition. ^_^

    1. @Anne, I think I saw an individual brush from Charm Brushes that looks like the tapered blending brush, it was sold for 250.

  4. I feel like $75 is not that bad for 7 brushes and the case. And these don't look dinky-small, microscopic travel size. I really wish I knew more about makeup when I invested on the MAC brushes. With RT and Sigma, I feel like I overpaid :(

  8. There's so much good reviews on SIgma brushes but I can't seem to get myself a set. IDK, maybe i find it pricey but I think they're a good investment naman. I guess, I'm satisfied my RT, Ecotools and a MAC brushes :D

    1. I don't own RT and Ecotools brushes even though they've received a lot of great reviews and they are super affordable too... it just happened that I've won a couple of Sigma brushes and just learned to love them. I've always wanted MAC eye brushes but just can't get myself to shell out about 1K for one piece of brush...hehe

  9. Hi, Hollie! So glad I found this post :) Just one question, Mr. Bunny brushes look very soft, so I think face brushes would work wonderfully but not sure eyes brushes would work well as much as Make Me Cool eyes brushes. What do you recommend between two?

    1. @Yu Hayley, thanks for droppin by... It all comes down to preference. They're both very soft and both sets work really well. I would prefer the Make Me Cool kit because, the eye brushes looks like they're made of natural hair, thus they blend shadows better. Also, I like the white bristled angled brush it comes with as it blends powder products like a breeze. Hope this helps ^_^
