Battle of the Blending Brushes: Sigma E35 vs Wet ‘n Wild Vegan Blending Brush


Today I’d like to compare two of the blending brushes in my makeup brush collection: Sigma’s E35 & Wet ‘n Wild’s blending brush from their new, vegan brush collection. They are similar in bristle length & density. They are similar in handle length. However, they are dramatically different.

The Sigma E35 has been my holy grail blending brush for over a year now. It’s not perfect but it’s the best one I’ve ever used for the type of eye looks I do the most. The bristle length & density is perfect. The handle length is perfect. 

My only complaint about the Sigma E35 is the softness of the bristles. They’re not super scratchy like the Morphe blending brushes I reviewed last year. They don’t hurt or anything. But they could definitely be softer. 

On the flip side, I find that the Wet ‘n Wild blending brush bristles are WAY too soft & silky. It affects the way it applies powder eye shadow. It lies down the color in a way that make it patchy & uneven.

I have tried the Wet ‘n Wild blending brush multiple times with multiple different shades of eye shadow & the result is always patchy & uneven. I want to love this brush because it’s super affordable ($.99) compared to the Sigma brush ($15). However, this brush is a major flop for me. I’ll be sticking to my Sigma brush.

I have not tried the other brushes from Wet ‘n Wild’s vegan line yet but I plan to. Super silky bristles don’t work well in a blending brush but they may work nicely in a face brush. I’m not ruling out this entire line, especially since so many people seem to love them.

If/when I try other brushes from this line, you’ll be the first to know. What about you? Have you tried any yet? Let me know your thougts!

  1. Awesome comparison! I love my sigma brushes but I’ve also been curious about the WnW brushes too. After reading this, I think i’ll pass on the WnW one for now and just stick to what I have đŸ™‚
