I got this brush included in the Make Me Cool kit. I don't use this for blush but I do use it for my bronzer. It's not really that great of a brush, to be honest. I rarely use this brush but when I do I notice that my bronzer actually stains the hairs on the brush. When I washed it for the first time, the hairs went in all crazy directions and now they are permanently like that. The bronzer stains also did not wash out and now it's like tinted brown. Some of the hairs are going one way and some the other, even with a shaper on it. I'm really disappointed in this brush, I was expecting more since I paid over $100 for the kit. I would not repurchase.

Lovely for highlight and blush. My only gripe is that the ferrule was obviously not made very well. It was loose when I received it so I have to be very careful with this brush.

I'm pretty much in love with this brush. I use it for contouring or blush (I place them in almost the same places, the blush just a little higher but not on my apples).. it's perfect! It grabs the perfect amount of color and I can easily control it to be lighter or darker and it blends my contour shade SO easily! I've really enjoyed using this brush! (I use it with my elf bronzer from the bronzer/blush duo)

This was one of the first sigma brushes that I bought along with the round top kabuki brush. I really wanted to try this out because I saw Jen frmheadtotoe use it. I have to say I'm really disappointed in this brush when I first recieved it, it smelt absolutely horrendous but after a few washes it kind of went away. This brush does not pick a lot of product, it has some individual hairs which pricked my skin and it does blend my blushes or contour powder very well.

This brush is awesome ! I think its my most used brush of all the brushes I own. I use it for blush,highlighter,contour,powder. I actually love it so much that I got 2 of them . It never sheds, and it's just so soft and perfect !

This is my go-to blush brush for every day. In my opinion, its too fluffy for contouring. It distributes blush however, very nicely over the cheeks. i also use it for all-over bronzer and powder when travelling.
it feels very soft, and is an excellent price. it doesn't shed, and i have had mine for almost a year now, and it still looks great.
for that reason, I am purchasing a second one to put in my travel makeup bag--i put all my favorites/double duty products in a bag for the gym and work touch-ups.

This is called the F40 now that Sigma changed their brush names. I was also disappointed with this. I wash my brushes before the first use and this didn't hold it's shape very well afterwards. It's not ideal for contouring because the bristles spread too far apart losing it's density. The bristles were soft though and didn't feel scratchy. Overall, I don't recommend it.

This brush is nothing special. The bristles flay out when I try to contour, getting product all over my cheek instead of in the crease. It doesn't pick up much product but what it does pick up streaks on the face. I have a Sonia Kashu angled brush that is just as good as this one. Very disappointed.

Again, the numbering clearly indicates that this brush is to be compared with the MAC version. As such, a comparison is warranted. I purchased this brush as an inexpensive alternative to the MAC version, and yes, it is similar and does the job of applying blush or any other face product probably just as well. However, this is much scratchier than the MAC version, is bigger and the bristles splay much more too. I went into a MAC store and to pick up some blush and the MA used her 168 on me and I was shocked at how soft it felt on my skin compared to my Sigma brush. I hadn't intended to buy a brush at all but I did so to save my skin. After all of my experience with Sigma brushes versus MAC brushes, I wish I had saved my money on the Sigma brushes, and bought fewer MAC brushes with the same money in order to get quality. Sigma offers quantity versus quality; you should decide which you want before you buy!

Hey Guys ,......Stop comparing mac brushes with stigma brushes .....If you have big money got for MAC ...But for people with normal budget Stigma are just perfect .....They do a perfect job for the money ....

I bought the Sigma complete kit for like $99 bucks and this brush was included, i honeslty didnt need it but it came in the kit so why not try it,..i don't contour at all, but i use it for blush, i honestly think it works pretty good, looks and feels like the MAC 168, in my opinion its pretty soft, seen softer tho and its dense enough for my preference. It barely sheds anything, i mean if your looking for a cheaper alternative to the MAC 168 or looking for a good contouring/blush brush this is the real deal. It cost only $14 USD, pretty good deal considering drug store brushes like revlon cost somewheres from $10-14 USD.. i like it, had it for about 10 months and works great, i reccommend it. Now u can buy them singles!
OMG! WHAT IN THE WORLD WAS I THINKIN WHEN I SAID I WOULDN'T RE-PURCHASE! I RE-DISCOVERED THIS BEAUTY! I LOVE IT FOR BLUSH AND STARTED USING IT EVERYDAY NOW, I OWN THE MAC 129 AND PREFER THIS BRUSH OVER ANYTHING ELSE ANYTIME ANYDAY! IM SO GETTING LIKE 2 MORE!

I got the sigma kit maily because it contained this brush which I really wanted. But it was only a dissapointment.
It's not soft at all, it has hairs sticking out in all directions, it practically reminds me of a broom :)
I find it doesn't distribute the blush colour evenly, so I have to use the big powder blush instead to get a natural look.

I love this brush for blush, so far this is my favourite blush brush and I have two of it. The bristles does not shed and i've been using it since January 2010 and it still is good shape. I got the second one in pink travel size to carry in my bag for touchups. The white bristles does get stained with my blush color and I cannot get it off. I wash this every one to two weeks with QV body wash, then condition it with my hair conditioner. To dry I lay it flat on the table.
Overall I love this brush, I'll tap the colour on my cheeks lightly, the fluffy, angled bristles are great for that, then brush over in circles to blend.

I've been using this brush for more than a month now and still don't understand how this brush is comparable to MAC 168
The bristles are NOT soft on the FACE; feels super soft on hand only.
It's pokey and does not pick up my blush colors and the colors go on unevely because the top bristles arent as dense as the bristles on the bottom. Overall, I dont recommend this for blush(uneven application&pokey) instead ss187 or 131 for blush

It is between this and the ss217 for my favorite Sigma Brush. This brush cleans perfectly, works flawlessly and stays together veru well. Would probably buy this again before I would buy a mac 168 :)

This brush doesn't compare to the MAC 168 at all. They are two entirely different brushes, although they look exactly the same. I've had my MAC 168 for over six years and it still looks and feels brand new. Personally, for me it is all about quality vs. quantity since the Sigma SS168 isn't sold individually and only comes in a brush kit. The bristles don't feel the same. Although the Sigma SS168 is soft, the MAC 168 is much softer. Moreover, I find that the MAC 168 picks up color better and has better color placement then the Sigma SS168.
