Sigma Dry n Shape and F40

 I've wanted to get the Sigma Dry n Shape for quite a while, but it was out of stock. When I finally got the email saying it was back I bought it that same day! They claim it will dry your brushes within 4-6 hours, yes it will dry your SIGMA brushes in 4-6 hours, others take a bit longer. This is so much better than my technique of making holes in a carton box and putting them upside down in there! Also, when you are not drying your brushes, you can use it to carry them around!

This was my first purchase from Sigma. I really REALLY want their Make Me Crazy Essential Kit (can't afford it though). I love their packaging, isn't it super cute?

Always make sure you wash your brushes before the first use, this way, you make sure you clean any residues that might be left from the manufacturing process.

I wonder what's in this cute box!

Yay! My Sigma F40, I wanted this brush SO much. It's a large angled contour brush. Now that I have it, I don't think I can live without it. I use it to apply my contour and it works just great and the bristles are super soft! It hasn't shed at all, not even after I washed it and of course, I dried it using the Dry n Shape and it was done in 6 hours!

When you spend $30 or more, you get a free gift, no coupon required.

Yay for more brushes! I got the E25, which is a blending brush, mine is travel size, but the only difference is the size of the handle. This brush is great too, the bristles are soft and it gets the job done. Also no shedding, not even after I washed it.

Oh my! This is the star of this post!

Isn't it just super cute? And comes in SUPER handy! Before this, I had a kabuki drying for like a week (lol!) and with this, well it took like 2 days, but let's face it, it is a really hairy kabuki(lol again!)

All you have to do is put your brushes in which ever slots will fit them tight and of course put it upside down.

 Look at my brushes sitting all pretty there! I did put a towel below them just in case. 

  The reason why you have to make sure the brush fits tight(they say you should use the smallest band the brush will fit into) is the pressure applied to it by the bands. This pressure is what helps them dry, the fabric is supposed to help water evaporate, but it just look like regular elastic to me, but I guess it does what they say, cuz it works!
 Now, this will not only dry your brushes, but shape them as well, so you won't have to worry about them losing their shape, which is a great plus!
  I read a bunch of reviews about this before I picked it up and a lot of people  complained or rated it low cuz it didn't have that many slots and it didn't have small ones for eye shadow or blending brushes. If you don't have a lot of brushes like me, you have 3 options: either go without make up for that day, wash them right after you did your make up or wash them at night. By the time you have to put your make up back on, the brushes will be dry. As for the smaller brushes, well they do dry really fast, so that applies to them as well.
  I'm super happy with my purchase, the Dry n Shape was $29 when I picked it up and now they have it for $32, but it's still worth it! The F40 was $14 when I grabbed it and is now $16. I wonder why they increased their prices? The E25 retails for $10, but mine was free.
  I totally recommend this product, it has worked wonders for me. I love it so much and it was totally worth the wait. If you want to pick it up, I say hurry up while they still have them in stock. I hope you love this as much as I do and it works out great for you too!
