This brush does a decent job of blending out liquid foundation. But . . . the glue holding the bristles in place does not last. I use parian sprit to clean my brushes, and don't let them soak. Did a batch of cleaning including my new F80. Chunks came out of the F80 after drying, and my other brushes were fine. Despite having bought the Sigma from a specialist on-line retailer (ie, not an Amazon or eBay fake), thought I must have had a dud. So bought a second one - again, genuine retailer. This time I didn't use the parian spirt - gave it a twirl through olive oil/dishwash ensuring I didn't soak the ferrule, rinsed in lukewarm water and hung it upside down to dry. The whole head of bristles came out after it had dried. As I said, I've cleaned plenty of brushes, and this is the only one to ever do this. The brush is so thick that I'm assuming what must be a very quick capillary action sucks the cleaning liquid straight up into the ferrule. After having wasted money twice, I'll stick with my Real Techniques in future.

This is my favorite buffing brush for foundation. The tips of the synthetic bristles are velvety and you don't need to press hard to blend well, so it's gentle on the skin. Quick, streak free application. I clean it with a spray bottle of Parian Spirit and a paper towel, then mist the bristles with another spray bottle of water. This method keeps water out of the ferrule. (For a deep clean, I use Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner.) I've been very happy with this brush and would absolutely buy it again. In fact, I plan to buy a backup.

My first Sigma brush. Use this brush everyday with my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. Blends foundation nicely and streak-free. Had this brush for a year and already thinking about purchasing a new one as it looks pretty used up and ‘tired’ from daily use.

This brush is an essential part of my makeup kit because It does an excellent job with my foundation. I have dry skin so first I use a heavy moisturizer, then I apply my foundation with my fingers and use the F80 to buff it out. It smoothes out fine lines and any imperfections. I’ve already replaced this brush... last summer I went to a party and someone stole it out of my purse, so I’ve been using the F82 or thr F84 (I got the kabuki kit). I finally got a replacement and didn’t realize how much better the F80 is!

I've had this brush for several years and I hardly ever use it. It's not that it's a bad brush and it does apply foundation nicely if I use circular motions but it leaves the coverage heavier than I like. I prefer my Sigma 3DH Kabuki over the F80 but i don't use it much either. Once I began to use the beauty blender I never looked back when it comes to foundation because I can get the sheerer coverage and the look that I prefer. I do like a lot of the Sigma brushes but I have cheaper Morphe, Eco Tools and E.L.F. that I like better. The F80 can be kind of hard to clean and it takes forever to dry. I don't know why but when I clean my brushes it is always the last one to dry. No shedding at all yet. I use SigMagic Brushampoo or Ecotools Brush Shampoo with a Kedsum silicone cleaning mat and sometimes if I'm in a hurry, just a plain bar of Dial antibacterial soap. Philosophy Purity also does a nice job in a pinch. When I travel I use my Purity, less things to have to take.I will not repurchase this brush if it ever starts to shed or fall apart because I just don't use it enough to warrant a re-purchase. Also the long drying time is annoying to me.

I'm usually a beauty blender type of gal but I recently purchased this sigma flat kabuki f80 and I'm INLOVE! I love how dense it is and how easy and quick it is to apply my foundation and the flawless finish the brush gives me every time. Also make sure you're stippling your product in and not using it like a paintbrush lol that will leave your foundation looking streaky.

I don't get the hype around this brush I mean yes it applies foundation well but its nothing special and I get the same result from using a RT brush so I don't see why this is so expensive when its not all that!Its quite difficult to clean and takes 2 days to fully dry verses my RT brushes which clean and dry in one day.Its okay but wouldn't repurchase and I hardly ever use pick this up.

I cannot believe I've never written a review for this brush. I have used this brush for YEARS and it's still my favorite foundation brush. It's a fairly dense, flat kabuki brush. It's just the right size. I can even blend my concealor with it. This brush makes foundation idiot proof. You do need to pat more than wipe. Anyone I know who doesn't like it was using it wrong by wiping and painting on foundation rather than stippling it on. I'm on my second one but only because a brush cleaner destroyed my first one-I think the Parian Spirits brush cleaner dissolved the glue and all the bristle became uneven and some fell out. Other than that mishap, this brush lasts forever (I use regular hand soap or bar soap to clean it other than that one fatal time with the Parian Spirits). After my first one died I tried to find a different foundation brush for variety. I ended up getting the Urban Decay one and it was way to floppy. I looked at Cover FX but it's so small! I might like that one as a concealor brush. I finally came back to my old faithful when I realized how much I missed it.
