If you wear mineral makeup like I do, you know that the trick to getting even coverage and a flawless finish is all in the brush you use.
I turn to kabuki brushes like a good friend. And the Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F80 brush is my BFF.
It delivers medium coverage, so you don’t have to apply as many sheer layers as you typically would with a dome-shaped kabuki. And the bristles are so soft and gentle on your face.
Totally love this flat-top brush, and I’m going to tell you why!

Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F80 Review
If you recall, I previously raved about the Everyday Minerals Flat Top Brush – it’s what I used every single day. Then the Sigma F80 came sashaying in and my pupils dilated! So you know I had to compare it.
The Sigma F80 is very dense and extremely soft. These 2 characteristics make it ideal for applying foundation – liquid or powder. Since I don’t wear liquid foundation, I only tested this brush with dry mineral makeup.
The softness of the bristles is extremely important since this kabuki is meant for buffing. Scratchy bristles would irritate your face. You definitely don’t have to worry about that with this brush – it feels like a plush toy you’d give to a baby.
It did a good job at evenly distributing my mineral makeup, and buffing everything out with small circular motions really helped to create an airbrushed finish. The Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F80 is a brush that I actually look forward to using every morning.
I really like the long handle because I feel like I have more control over application. You can hold it near the end to let the brush do all the work, or you can hold it by the ferrule when you need more precision.
Now it’s time for the comparison!
Final Verdict: 10/10
I highly recommend the Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F80 brush because it’s easy-to-use, has a sturdy construction that should last the test of time if you take care of it, and is a cinch to lather up when you wash it. This is an affordable foundation brush that lives up to its claims.
