Sigma vs mac 187

For me there is no comparison. The sigma is much harder to work with as it is so much bigger.

Mac 187 left, sigma 187 right.

Top: (dirty!) sigma 187,
Bottom: mac 187

To me they apply in a completely different way, and I feel the mac 187 is so much easier to work with.

I still think that for the price sigma brushes are great quality, but in terms of performance, I would have to say I prefer the mac brushes.


  1. I couldnt get on with the 187 by Sigma. It's like a big industrial brush. I find it scratchy and i once poked myself in the eye with it. OMG the pain and it weeped for like 2 days.

  2. Awww poor you! I have also found that the tips turn slightly blue after regular washing...weird!
