Sigma Beauty Synthetic Kabuki Kit Review and Photos

Today I want to tell you about the Sigma Beauty Synthetic Kabuki Kit. It comes in a pretty packaging and all brushes are also packed individually inside.

The packaging is nice, simple and really helpful.  They have some very handy instructions on the back of  each box. All I can say is that I’d really appreciate it back in the days when I was getting my first brushes.
