Sigma essential brush kit review

I needed new make up brushes but didn't want to spend the money on mac, because to be honest I don't like the quality of their brushes they shed and they're expensive. So boo you mac brushes, i bought sigma!. For the price the quality is very good mine haven't shed and I have cleaned them twice now. I was tempted to order them straight from the sigma website but after reading a woman's blog on her ordeal of them getting her address wrong, being given the wrong information, then after she got them after months one was broken I was like um no! Instead I got them from the set was around £80.00 it comes with 12 brushes
E05 eyeliner- for liquid or gel liners
E30 pencil-I would describe this as a very precise shading brush good for smudging eyeliner and applying eyeshadow to the inner corners of the eye
E65 small angle- you can use this for eyeliner or eyebrows because it is angled it's probably a little better if you don't have such a steady hand.
E40 tapered blending- pretty much just a crease brush just used for blending the eyeshadow but I have used it to sweep the fall out from under my eyes and also set in my under eye concealer, I do find it quite big compared to my urban decay crease brush but I like it all the same.
E55 eye shading- this is a dense eyeshadow brush it gives good color pay off and picks up a lot of product, perfect for loose pigment or glitter I use it to blend above my crease and highlight under my eyebrow.
E60 large shader- good for cream shadow, eye primer, or just a powder shadow.
E70 medium angled shading- I use this for for more precise crease blending and softer lid color.
F70 concealer- self explanatory really I just use this to conceal.
F60 foundation- I prefer my urban decay foundation brush but I still use it when I don't have a clean foundation brush.
F40 large angled contour- good for blush and contouring.
F50-duo fibre- this is really nice to use with a liquid high lighter or to achieve a light coverage finish or apply a powder for an airbrushed finish.
F30 large powder- I love this it's big, soft, and applies powder evenly and quickly.

This next brush wasn't a part of the set but I bought it on the same website for about £19.00
F25 tapered face- great for applying powder in the corners of the nose and around the mouth because of its dome shape you can get the product exactly where you want it.
