If you're interested in makeup then I'm sure you're familiar with The Beauty Blender. It's a sponge that you use to apply your foundation, concealer or other face products that are in a cream form. It is said to blend foundation flawlessly and will make you leave your stippling brushes behind!
However, I was hesitant to actually purchase it, as I think some people are. I mean, it's a sponge that costs $20, that can be a bit scary! But my curiosity got the best of me and I finally purchased it. I've been using it for a few months now so I decided it was a good time to finally give my full review!
It comes in two different packages, you can either get the single BeautyBlender or the package that contains two. I only got the single one because I wasn't sure how I'd like it.
Single BeautyBlender - $19.95
Two BeautyBlenders - $28.95
I read plenty of reviews and watched videos before buying it and honestly I was surprised with what I heard. Most of the reviews were extremely positive! Of course I ran into the occasional review saying it was pointless but I still decided I'd never know until I tried it myself. So I finally caved in a spent the money on the single beauty blender.
I was very excited to try it out for the first time! To use the beauty blender you need to run it under lukewarm water and squeeze it until it absorbs the water. It was gradually become bigger the more it absorbs. Then what I did was completely squeeze all the water out of it, then I would take a towel and wrap it around the sponge and squeeze it some more so it would just be slightly damp. I then took whatever foundation I was using and dotted it all over my face, like usual. Then I took the beauty blender and started blending in my foundation with it.
To my pleasant surprise, my skin looked wonderful! It really made the foundation go on smoothly and flawlessly. The damp beauty blender made my foundation look natural but with also keeping full coverage. I also tried it with one of my thickest foundations my Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation, and it blended it out perfectly! The application was a lot nicer than using my stippling or foundation brushes because I felt it was really getting into my skin instead of just smearing it around.
Easy to clean
I was extremely pleased with the Beauty Blender, I know there are tons of reviews out there about this but I thought I'd just add to the positive ones! This is a truly great product and I will definitely be purchasing the Two BeautyBlender set next time. I never use my foundation brushes anymore! So I would definitely recommend for you to try it out!
You can purchase the Beauty Blender at Sephora.com!
