Review: Sigma Dry & Shape

Last week I was sent the latest product from Sigma, the Dry&Shape. After washing my brushes, I usually lay them flat on the edge of the window, allowing the breeze to dry them naturally. Drying them this way means I sometimes get fly away hairs as pictured below...

This is where the dry&shape comes into work. The product allows the brushes to be shaped whilst drying.

Sigma Say:

Tired of waiting for your brushes to dry after washing them? Wait no more! Introducing the revolutionary Sigma Beauty Dry’n Shape system! The Dry’n Shape was designed to completely dry and shape your most dense brushes within 4 to 6 hours, guaranteed.

The Dry’n Shape provides the necessary pressure to bristles to quickly and efficiently remove water from every fibre. The fabric used to shape the bristles was specially engineered to accelerate water evaporation, resulting in a faster drying time for your brushes.

The Dry’n Shape is an easy, quick, and effective way to quickly dry and shape your makeup brushes. Follow these three easy steps for best results:

Wash your brushes using a mild shampoo or brush cleanser.

Gently press the bristles to remove any excess water. Place the clean, damp brushes into the Dry’n Shape using the smallest band the brush will fit into. Make sure that all bristles are firmly compressed.

Wait 4 to 6 hours and your brushes will be completely dry and ready to use! In addition to being completely dry, the bristles will be reshaped to their original form. Your brushes will be perfect for your makeup application!

Here is my set of brushes in the roll (a mix of MAC & Sigma).

I stood the brush roll upside down, allowing the excess water from the bristles to free flow downwards. Sigma claim that after 4-6 hours, your brushes should be completely dry. From my experience this applies to medium-small brushes. My blush/eye brushes were dry, but my larger sized brushes such as the powder and my contouring brush was still slightly damp in the middle. I decided to leave them overnight in which of course, by morning, I had brushes dried, shaped and just like brand new.

The brush roll holds 12 brushes, this is not enough for me. As pictured, my smaller eye brushes could not be catered for so I left them to dry on their own. However having said this, 12 slots is a decent amount to the average female.

The brush roll is $29. I personally think this is good value. Not only does it dry and shape your brushes, it can also be used as a travel brush roll when traveling. The roll is also made of good quality and will last for years. I have 3 Sigma brush rolls now and they never disappoint.

  6. I wonder how you wash the brush roll? I can imagine it being unsanitary (especially the elastic part holding it) after 3-4 uses, considering it probably soaks in the dirty brush water. Still, looks like a nice useful product.
