Sigma Beauty Dry'n Shape - Review

First thing , i love the way sigma beauty products come packaged. It came in a white typical USPS box , inside was the Dry'n Shape box with usual information booklets which basically tells / guides you how to use it .I received mine in perfect condition . 

What it is : 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:

 Price: $29 USD 
Availability: Sigma Beauty
When i first read about Dry'n Shape i was bit skeptical , i was thinking how can a brush roll helo brushes dry quickly . But with time and experience , your opinion changes . If you want to read my detailed review , read on

The Sigma Dry'n Shape comes in a black roll , which looks very similar to the typical brush rolls we have or see. The Dry'n Shape has a magnetic closure  which works fantastically to secure your brushes if you travel .

When opened up The sigma dry n shape comes with 12 slots for your brushes. Dry'n Shape has 12 elastic bands on the top and then 12 holders on the bottom .
These slots will fit your largest and most dense brushes very well but the fit for the  smaller eye brushes will be little loose.

Here is how to use it (description quoted from Sigma website):
STEP 1: Wash your brushes using a mild shampoo or brush cleanser.
STEP 2: 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.
STEP 3: 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!

I wash my brushes as i normally do, first i use baby shampoo to get rid of the dirt by rolling out ny brushes in the mixture and then wash them by running them under the water upside down. Then i roll some of my brushes in the conditoner which actually helps them make more soft. Again wash them by running them under the water upside down.

Now after washing my brushes , i have placed them in Dry'n Shape . The bigger brushes like face brushes, bluhs/bronzer brushes fit perfectly .
The elastic band compress the bristels to squeese all the water out of the brushes which help them to dry quicker.

The tricky part is to adjust brushes in the elastic band , because you dont know how far to push them , if you push them too far , you have to do them again.

Usually my my elf powder brush and Sigma large powder brush F30 takes like agaes to dry so i put them under the direct sun light in the afternoon and leave them to dry.
When i checked them after few hours,All of y brushes were dry , nice and shaped*
(No more flared brushes* whoo !  . Like no kidding .  Almost Four hours in the Dry'n Shape, my blush brush (along with everything else) was completely dry and shaped

My brushes all dried and shaped

Over all I would highly recommend it if you are on a go and want your brushes squeaky clean dry . But if you dont mind waiting a whole day , them skip it ;) For me it made my life easier as i hate washing my brushes because some of my favorite brushes are really dense. Don’t forget Sigma ships worldwide!
