Julklappstips #8 – Sigma The Cities: London

Sminkpenslar och borstar är lite av en investering, och personligen så tycker jag att det är roligare att shoppa på mig nya skuggor och läppstift än en ny borste eller pensel, hur mycket nytta jag än vet att jag kommer ha av den. Därför älskar jag att få borstar och penslar i present, och jag misstänker att ni är fler med mig. Till julen har Sigma tagit fram nya limited edition-versioner av ett av sina borstkit, inspirerade olika städer – The Cities, där ett av kiten heter London.

The Cities: London består av sju stycken av Sigmas bästsäljande borstar i Travel size, det vill säga med lite kortare skaft. Skaften i just London-kitet är gjorda av kastanjeträ och 18 karats guld för att representera Londons elegans, riktiga lyxborstar med andra ord! Dessutom följer det med en smart behållare som blir till två muggar att förvara borstarna i när man öppnar den – sjukt smart!

De borstar som ingår i The Cities-kiten är:

  • Eye Liner – E05 An extra fine-tipped brush that delivers a precise, firm, even stroke to line the eyes. Synthetic bristles.
  • Tapered Blending – E35 Fluffy, long-bristled brush with tapered tip. Ideally used to apply and blend color to the crease area and to soften harsh edges. Natural bristles.
  • Small Tapered Blending – E45 Small domed brush with highly tapered tip. Versatile, this brush can be used to precisely apply and blend intense colors to the crease area. Natural bristles.
  • Large Shader – E60 Flat shape is ideal for application of cream formulas and eye shadow primers. Natural bristles.
  • Small Contour – F05 Ideal to apply, blend or contour powder products. The softly rounded dome top smoothly blends color into the face. Natural bristles.
  • Duo Fibre Powder/Blush – F15 Medium-sized tapered brush. Widely disperses highly pigmented or mineralized powders. Blend of natural and synthetic bristles.
  • Large Powder – F30 Fluffy and rounded tip. Suitable application of powder products on face or body. Natural bristles.



Sju användbara borstar och penslar som du kommer väldigt långt på, släng på en snedställd platt pensel till brynen, en foundationborste och en platt toningspensel så har du i princip ett komplett borstset! The Cities: London kostar $89 hos Sigmas amerikanska webshop.

In English: Makeup brushes are a bit of an investment, and personally I find it more fun to shop eyeshadows and lipsticks than brushes, no matter how much use I know that I will get from the brush. That’s why I love getting brushes as a gift, and I suspect that there are many of you who agree with me! For the holidays, Sigma has launched new limited edition versions of one of their travel brush kits inspired by different cities – The Cities, where one of the kits is called London.

The Cities: London consists of seven of Sigma’s best selling brushes in travel size, i.e. they have shorter handles. The handles in the London kit are made out of chestnut wood and 18 carat gold to represent the poise and elegance of London, a set of real luxury brushes in other words. Plus, there is also an accompanying container that turns into two cups to store your brushes when you open it – how clever!

You can read about the seven brushes that are included in this kit above, they are all very useable brushes that will get you a long way, add an angled brow brush, a foundation brush and a flat blending brush and you’ve basically got a complete brush set! The Cities: London costs $89 at Sigma’s web shop.
