PRODUCT REVIEW: Beautyblender Sponge


Beautyblender Sponge ★★★★½
Price: $29.95
About: pink makeup applicator sponge designed to provide flawless makeup application.
Review: Being a makeup artist, I am always on the lookout for the best of the best and Beautyblender is a winner. In fact, I honestly don't know how makeup artists worked before the creation of the Beautyblender. This nifty little sponge is like no other: the teardrop shape is designed to match the shape of a face. The sponge gives the most beautiful flawless finish to skin when used to apply moisturiser, primer, foundation, and concealer. The larger round end helps cover larger areas of the face such as cheeks, forehead, chin and neck while the soft pointed tip targets smaller areas such as around the mouth, eyes, around nostrils and for blemishes. To use it run your Beautyblender sponge under water so it expands and holds a little of the water. Then apply the product to the sponge and 'stipple' the sponge on the skin.
Tip: To Stipple: press in to the skin and swiftly pat in and repeat) Because Beautyblender sponges holds product on the outside of the sponge, and does not absorb the product in side like a regular sponge or foam applicator it means that each Beautyblender can be re-used for several months. However they do require regular cleaning - I would suggest cleaning it weekly with Beautycleanser or baby shampoo which works a treat. It loses half a star because the sponges are very fragile and if a stubborn colours gets stuck on them is can be a little hard to remove without breaking the fine fibres that hold it together. Great news for those with sensitive skin: Beautyblender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free. I totally love my Beauty Blenders and you will too.
