Mrs. Bunny Essentials kit

This post is mostly just to show off my new (OK I've had it for a few weeks now) brush set from Sigma. It is so pretty, I had a discount code so I didn't pay full price AND I got free shipping, but for the number and quality of brushes the US$109 price tag isn't that bad (in my opinion) best of all, the 12 piece brush count doesn't include annoying things like eyelash combs, sure, we all need one, yes, ONE not one per brush set.  (seriously, if anyone wants a lash comb, let me know)

So when it came out of the Parcel, it looked like this, so cute.

Inside the box is an even more cute case which holds all the brushes to keep them safe. 
Then this conveniently opens out to be 2 brush holders. 

The brush handles themselves are baby blue, as you can just see, with pink ferrules, the bristles are 100% synthetic and vegan friendly. You can find this set here.  It is also available in black as the MR. bunny set.  Either in the essentials kit, as I have or the travel kit, a smaller more compact kit.

For interests sake the number/type of brushes are as follows:

Eye Liner - E05 An extra fine-tipped brush that delivers a precise, firm, even stroke to line the eyes. Synthetic bristles.
Pencil - E30 Precise application of colour on the crease, outer corner, upper and lower lash line.
Tapered Blending - E40 Rounded and tapered top. Specially designed to apply and blend colour on the crease.
Eye Shading - E55 Soft and dense with a rounded finish. Can be used to apply pressed or loose eye shadows and pigments.
Large Shader - E60 Flat shape is ideal for application of cream formulas and eye shadow primers.
Small Angle - E65 Essential for the application of gel or cream eye liner on the upper and lower lash line.
Medium Angled Shading - E70 Angled, tapered, flat top. Ideal to apply highlight shades underneath the eyebrow and on the inner corners.
Large Powder - F30 Very dense with a rounded top. Ideal to apply powder products on face and body.
Large Angled Contour - F40 The angled shape makes this brush ideal to apply blush or contour shades.
Duo Fibre - F50 Specially designed to generate an airbrushed finish when used to apply blush, highlight shades and foundation.
Foundation - F60 Can be used to apply liquid or cream foundation. Recommended to apply moisturisers and conceal large areas.
Concealer - F70 The rounded, tapered, flat shape makes this brush ideal to conceal the under eye area.


  1. Love it - Did you get standard shipping? Can I ask how long did it take?? I always get express shipping to AUS because Im impatient! :(
    Awesome blog.

    1. I always get standard shipping because 1. I'm loathed to pay more for a service I doubt will be any different, it took under 2 weeks over Christmas, I'm not sure how long exactly but when it arrived I was amazed it was here already! Its such a great set of brushes.
