Call me Goldilocks if you want, but I think the Sigma Foundation F60 Brush is juuuuuuuuuuuust right. The size, the shape, the density, the stiffness – I think Sigma Makeup hits it out of the park with this one.
Formerly the Sigma Foundation SS190 Brush, this little tool will do more than just give you a flawless complexion. It also helps your foundation supply last longer.

Sigma Foundation F60 Brush Review
I have tried applying my foundation multiple ways before: using my fingers, a sponge and other brushes. And I can honestly say that the Sigma Foundation F-60 Brush is currently my preferred method of choice.
Let’s start with the bristles – they feel soft against your skin, even when using it on the sensitive under-eye area. It doesn’t scratch or poke at you – love.
The bristles also have the right amount of stiffness vs. pliability to them. The reason why this is important? It helps to prevent streak marks. Bristles that are too stiff or inflexible can’t spread the foundation evenly. Not a problem with this Sigma foundation brush – it has the give it needs to hug the curves of my face so that no spot is missed.
I also find that I use less product with the Sigma F60 brush. The bristle density means it’s able to pick up more product with a single dip, while the size lets me distribute that product evenly on the skin. What does this lead to? Fewer applications. With a less-dense brush, you have to apply a few more times to get the same coverage. This wastes product, and the end result doesn’t look as natural.
While I like the size for coverage over a larger area, it can be slightly cumbersome when applying foundation around my nose. Ah, but that’s where the shape comes in. The Sigma F60 Foundation Brush has a rounded top that comes to a slight point. Simply turn it sideways on its head, and voila!
The length of the Sigma F-60 Foundation Brush is also good – no need to stand too far away from the mirror. Mine is a travel size though; it comes to you for free if you get the Sigma Travel Kit Nice in Pink, but you can purchase the full size separately.
Final Verdict: 9/10
A lot of people don’t like to use foundation brushes, but I love them. I find that they are essential to getting even and customizable coverage. And the Sigma F60 is one of the best I’ve tried.
What do you use to apply foundation? Would you give the Sigma F60 a try?
