I'll be sharing pictures of Sigma's newest brush set release, the Make Me Up Travel Edition, with you today! I have the original, full-sized version of the gorgeous turquoise Make Me Cool color way and I will show you the differences in the sizing of the brushes at the end of the post.
Sigma's site description: "The Sigma Beauty Make Me Up Travel Edition was specially designed for a fun, yet practical makeup application. This kit contains seven travel-size brushes from our best-selling Essential Kit. The brushes come in an innovative and functional container that turns into two brush holders to keep you stylish and organized on the go."
These are the same price as the City Collection travel sets I showed last week [with the exception of the 18k gold-plated London], a reasonable $59. I prefer the City Collection sets because the brushes are very specific, better tailored to professional make-up application -- after all, you are getting the brushes from the Sigma Premium Professional set. But I think the Make Me Up Travel Edition is definitely going to appeal to the general population more since the brushes are truly essential styles! You will receive a powder brush, a foundation brush, blush/contour brush, and four eye brushes.
This kit will make any special person in your life very happy. Also, if your budget is a little more restricted, then this is a great way to try out Sigma brushes before investing in the full-sized version of the Make Me Cool kit!
Here are those full v. travel brush size comparison photos I promised you. As you can see, the brush heads are identical but the handles are shorter! The quality of the bristles and the density of the handles have not been compromised so no need to worry; these are a much more worthy purchase than MAC's shoddy, overpriced mini brushes.
Bottom Line: If you thought the City Collection was a bit narrowly tailored considering your make-up needs, then this basic and affordable travel edition is perfect for you!
