You have no idea how freakin' excited I was to find this brush! The F80 is a really gorgeous piece of work. Created to buff liquid and cream foundations onto the face, its synthetic bristles are extremely soft, densely packed, and is very professional in looks and the way it handles. You'd think that this brush would be far more expensive than it is, however you can get yours from Sigma for only $18!
Seeing as how I recently received Urban Decay's Naked Skin foundation, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to test out the Sigma F80.
Per suggestion from another beauty blogger, I dotted foundation on my face using my fingertips FIRST before buffing it in using the F80. This being that F80's bristles are so dense, it tends to pick up too much product if one were to use it like a paintbrush. (ie. directly dipping it into the product)
GASP! So gorgeous! I was completely floored by how perfect my complexion looked after using the F80! I've tried so many other modes of application: stipple brushes, flat foundation brushes, sponges, etc. No other method I've used has performed as well as this one. Coverage was soft, even, and absolutely flawless! What's more, not a single bristle was shed during application...something I seldom experience when using new brushes. Totally exceeded my expectations!
Needless to say, I am beyond happy with this brush! I was THIS close to purchasing Urban Decay's Good Karma Optical Blurring brush for my foundation routine, but I find this to be absolutely unnecessary at this point.
Anyways, to complete today's look, I did a natural, soft smoke with my new Urban Decay Naked palette using Half Baked, Darkhorse, Creep, and Virgin:

|That's MAC Powder Blush in Mocha on my cheeks, btw.|
I'd say I'm pretty pleased with my FOTD! Hope everyone enjoys a safe and happy new year! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
