The Only Highlighting Brush You'll Ever Need

Sigma F35 - Tapered Highlighter Brush

Highlighting, strobing, making sure all eyes are on those killer cheekbones - whatever you want to call it, there is no denying that applying highlighter particular those of the powder variety, becomes so much easier if you have the right tool. The one brush you need for applying your powder highlighter like a pro, surprisingly won't break the bank and as it is made by Sigma you can rely on it for years to come. Ladies and gentlemen I present the Sigma F35 - Tapered Highlighter Brush.

Over the years I have dabbled with fan brushes, fluffy and huge tools and small, flat topped highlighter brushes along with several tapered offerings. Some were good but very few were great. The problem with highlighting products is it is all too easy to apply to over-apply which isn't always the look I am going for, and unlike a setting powder most of us do want to brush on highlighter to targeted areas of the face. Answering all my shimmer based woes and then some is the Sigma F35 - Tapered Highlighter Brush.

This nifty, tapered brush is small but perfectly formed: the weighted handle allows for control, the soft yet dense brush hairs comfortably collect product, all the while being able to buff and diffuse, even the most shimmery of highlighting powders. As an added bonus, the nifty tapered design of this brush allows you to apply your chosen illuminating powder to even the most awkward area of your face - looking at you weirdly shaped brow bones of mine. If you struggle with highlighter and/or are a little heavy handed, this is the brush you have been waiting for.

Psst you didn't hear this from me but the Sigma F35 - Tapered Highlighter Brush may just be the best purse-friendly dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Powder and Sculpt Brush (£35).

You can find the Sigma F35 - Tapered Highlighter Brush £15.85 via Feel Unique - link.

  1. Oh wow, I've never actually used a seperate brush for my highlighter. Usually I just mix it in with my blusher brush but then it does make highlighting my nose and brow bones quite tricky as it's not precise enough. I don't actually own any Sigma brushes, perhaps I should check them out!

  6. This brush does look like a great highlighting brush. Generally I tend to use a small blusher brush to apply highlighter on my cheekbones, so that's not the most precise technique. Sigma brushes are apparently great value for money - and if this one is a dupe for a Charlotte Tilbury one, then it's all good! I'll check it out, thanks for sharing :)

  15. Haha as I was scrolling through my bloglovin feed I saw this and thought oh my goodness a dupe for the CT brush?! And you pretty much just answered my question. I'll definitely need to look into this one! And yeah, the number of brushes and tools are plentiful but the number of those that are actually good are sometimes limited. Thanks for sharing this one!

    1. Honestly ignore the cream shade and mix together the peach and yellow powders to create a gentle highlight that can be used all over the face. I like the pink-y shade in the corners of my eyes too.

  18. This looks awesome, it's on my wishlist now! I'm on the hunt for a better highlighter brush. I've tried the Models Prefer 103 Highlighter & Contour Brush, but that Sigma F35 looks heaps better!

  19. I think there's a Morphe brush which is really similar so if anyone's really on a budget that might be a little cheaper. I believe it's the M438 x

  21. I'm a brush hoarder but I only use synthetic brushes. Is this synthetic or natural hair?

  22. Sold! Maybe give the Anastasia Beverley Hills one a try too? I love that one, but it's not as purse friendly as the Sigma brush.
