How to Spot a DUPE SIGMA F80

Replica.  SG authentic.     – call it whatever! Its all DUPE.
Is it that bad? – No. I myself own some dupe brushes such as crease brush , eyebrow brush, smudge brush ) .
I guess It depeneds on the brand and item you need and what  you are comparing to.

the original is softer so  it has a wider fluff

TEXTURE OF BRISTLES
Both are soft and fluffy. You almost can’t tell the difference just by looking
APPLICATION
The Original one, is easier to move around the face, the hair moves freely  that it makes it easier to blend.  The dupe is densely packed that it restricts the movement of the hair or bristles.

personally, I think a good brush set can make any cheap or affordable make brand look expensive once applied,  Rather than a good makeup brand with a cheap brush set because the blending will not be as good and flawless.
