I recieved these brushes in record time and they were really nicely packed. I really liked the black clutch they were in it also has a zippered pouch in it making it easy to throw in a few products perfect for travel!

Brushes in this kit:

Pencil - E30 - Precise application of color on the crease, outer corner, and upper and lower lash line. Also ideal to smudge out pencil liner. Natural bristles.

LOVE this Brush!!!!! Perfect for getting into the corners!!!

Tapered Blending - E40 - Rounded and tapered top. Specially designed to apply and blend color on the crease. Natural bristles.

This is now my favorite Blending brush, this brush really does make blending simple instead of a chore!

Eye Shading - E55 - Soft and dense with a rounded finish. Can be used to apply pressed or loose eye shadows and pigments. Ideal to build intense color on the eyelid. Natural bristles.

         I thought this brush was PERFECT for picking up loose pigments!!
Large Powder - F30 - Very dense with a rounded top. Ideal to apply powder products on face and body. Natural bristles.

Nice Powder Brush

Large Angled Contour - F40 - The angled shape makes this brush ideal to apply blush or contour shades. Natural bristles.

The only problem I had with this brush was the bristles were a little wild and I had a problem with fallout even after washing and shaping the brush

Foundation - F60 - Can be used to apply liquid or cream foundation. It is also recommended to apply moisturizers and conceal large areas. Synthetic bristles.

I don't really like using foundation brushes but found this worked really nicely with applying contour!

Concealer - F70 - The rounded, tampered, flat shape makes this brush ideal to conceal the under eye area. It is also recommended for a precise application in small areas. Synthetic bristles.

         This worked perfectly and also made a nice eyeshadow brush as well!

All in All I was very impressed with Sigmas Naughty in Black Travel Kit and would highly recommend it for purchase!  Sigma was also kind enough to let me have a giveaway  of 1 kit which can be found on my facebook page for Simply Kendra under the Discussion Tab!
