Sigma Beauty is an internet based beauty company that is known for its quality, inexpensive makeup brushes. They carry a variety of synthetic and animal hair brushes for application of foundation, concealers, powders, and eyeshadows. Being the YouTube fanatic that I am, I have come across so many artists that pride themselves and their work on the use of Sigma brushes. One perk that I immediately liked about Sigma is that the company offers a lifetime warranty on all of their brushes! In other words, if any of your brushes break or shed (and you didn’t cause the damage, of course) then you simply call their Customer Service and they will send you a new brush free of charge. You heard it right! F-R-E-E! I also noticed that Sigma carries every single brush that you could think of that you would ever need. I’m definitely a fan of one- stop-shop shopping! The only downfall is that they are an Internet based company so my hesitation has been the fact that I couldn’t check them out for myself before I bought them! I feel it’s a hassle to order something, wait 7-10 business days for shipping, then have to turn around and re-box and send back if you are not satisfied!
Let me tell you all a secret that not many people know, okay…! There IS a Sigma Beauty cosmetic store in the U.S!!! It’s located at the Mall of America.
My friend, and fellow makeup artist, –>bellanoel<—, shared that tidbit of information with me not too long ago, and being the flight attendant that I am, when I got the Minneapolis layover I was more than ecstatic! I was overly overjoyed, beyond elated, through the roof-over the mountain top-to the moon excited! We lodge 5 minutes walking distance from the mall and I probably would have skipped like a 5-year old heading into Disney World if it wouldn’t have looked utterly ridiculous.
Review of the store…
Every brush and brush set is beautifully and conveniently set out on display on high top counters around the store. There are three stations, or beauty bars, set up along a counter on each side wall for makeup application. They allow you to use the brushes with cosmetic items they offer in the store but their products are limited to eyeshadows and eyeliners. Nevertheless, you have a full sized mirror and all the makeup supplies you need to apply and take off whatever you like. There are also iPads docked near each workstation that are set to YouTube and they feature an endless array of beauty vloggers that use Sigma cosmetics. If you aren’t sure how to use a certain brush the ladies in there were certainly very knowledgeable and helpful and let me add…patient! The beauty consultant, Stephanie, shared that the store holds an event on e a month that features a celebrity makeup artist who visits the store as a special guest. Not only that, Sigma also offers Beauty Parties where if you hosts a party in the store for friends the hostess receives $5 off for each guest that attends and 10% commission on all sales generated by the beauty party. Each attendee receives 10% off their in-store purchase, complimentary desserts and refreshments, and sample products! How great of a deal is that??! I loved the store almost as much as I love visiting Sephora! If you are wondering why you have never heard of this little piece of Beauty Heaven, it’s because this store is their model store and it recently opened back in December 2012. Stephanie did share that Sigma will be expanding their stores in the near future, so you all take a moment to pray that one reaches your area soon!!! I’m praying hard for my city of Atlanta!
I must admit my only regret about visiting the store was that I neglected to take pictures to post for you all 😥 I did want to show you the products that I bought though. The description (as written on their website) is listed underneath each pic.
