My First Sigma Haul!!!

Finally oh finally!!!!! I've been hearing so much about Sigma back in 2010 but the price... omg the price.... As a student, it was waaaay out of my budget and also there were barely any lowyat sprees ordering from Sigma's site. So I continue to read up on all the spazzing and how the quality was on par with MAC brushes. Now after 2 years, I can finally strike it off my wish list :D

Few weeks ago, I came across Luxola, the first online luxury cosmetic and skincare site in South East Asia. They bring in a selection of exclusive products from the most sought out brands! You can spot some popular brands like Beauty Blender, Korress, Sleek Makeup and Sigma which are quite difficult for us Malaysians to get our hands on. The best part is, they ship from Singapore!!! which is a lot less to worry about :D Delivery time is quite fast too between 2-8 business days. As for Sigma, if you do monitor the pricelist in MYR, it's a hell lot cheaper compared to the prices on lowyat forums! :D

Luxola had a sweet deal whereby there's a free gift for pruchase of Sigma products above RM125. Plus that sweet deal I bought from Living Social hehehe I immediately placed my order together with May's :D

Stuff arrived!!! *O*
Everything was wrapped individually in bubble wrap. Even the envelop that was sent out is also coated with bubble wrap! <3 thanks for taking such good care of the items, Luxola! *O* 

The case of brushes~
I ordered the Mrs Bunny Travel Kit as Mr Bunny was out of stock. Really didn't want to wait since it's uncertain when they'll restock it.

The Mrs. Bunny Travel Kit was specially designed to deliver the perfect makeup application. This kit contains seven travel-size brushes from our best-selling Essential Kit that utilize the Sigmax HD filament. The brushes come in an innovative and functional container that turns into two brush holders to keep you stylish, organized and vegan-friendly!

The case was much bigger than I expected and I love the baby blue color <3. Next is unveiling the brushes 8DDDD

The kit consist of 7 brushes includes

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.
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. 
E65 - Small Angle: Create precise lining. Moves fluidly and easily across the upper and lower lash lines. Use with gel, cream or powder liners.
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.

Very complete kit for me. I usually hate buying kit brushes since there will be 2-4 brushes that I don't need (like the lip and mascara brush) but this kit comes with all the basic brushes I need! :D The brushes feel sooooo soft and such a dream to hold them 8D No wonder every girl is screaming about these babies. Can't wait to use them then for CF!!!

Upclose of brushes :D
Case doubles as a brush cup holder :D
Freebie #1!
Remember I mentioned earlier that there's a free gift for Sigma purchases above RM125? Yeap~ the first freebie is a Sigma travel size Blending Brush!!!! *_*
Sigma's E25 Blending Brush!
Freebie #2 Eyebrow Shadow :D
Second freebie is an eyebrow shadow. As you can see, the packaging is so tiny and cute! Reminds me of TheBalm's palette and blusher packaging XD. I've got no use for this though since I have very dark brows haha.

Mrs Bunny Travel kit is priced at RM192.50 at Luxola. They're out of stock at the moment but you can click on the Notify Me button so that you'll get a heads up when they restock :D Subscribe to Luxola's Facebook for the latest beauty updates and products they bring in =)
