Beauty Blender | Review

Hi Lovelies! Today I thought I'd talk about the famous Beauty Blender, which is adored by many including Celebrities and top Make-Up Artists, in fact this is often what Kim Kardashian's make-up artist uses to apply her foundation. I tried the Beauty Blender for the first time the other day and loved it so much! Honestly I think this has a become holy grail to me already!!

First of all to prepare the Beauty Blender, you need to run it under water which will make it expand then squeeze out excess water leaving it damp and ready to use. To apply your make-up you simply bounce (stipple) the damp Beauty Blender on your skin. I applied a few dots of foundation on my face then used the Beauty blender to blend it all in. It blends in foundation so seamlessly and leaves you with a effortlessly flawless look! I love the feel of the sponge too, it is so soft! I use it to blend in my concealer aswell which it is great for, the pointy end is good for getting in around the harder to reach areas around the eyes and nose. They are available in a variety of colours, pink black and white. I got mine in a set that comes with the cleanser from BeautyBay (link). The Beauty Blender on it's own costs £16 which at first I thought was expensive for a sponge, but after using it I totally think its worth it and will repurchase when this one needs replacing! I know there are cheaper alternatives out there similar to the Beauty Blender, like the Cosmopolitan one but I haven't tried it so I can't say whether it is just as good or not but it would be interesting to see how it compared to the Beauty Blender.

Have you tried the Beauty Blender? What did you think?

  1. I haven't ever used the Original Beauty Blender but I did my cosmopolitans version of it and I found it just left me looking patchy :s I'd like to find out if this is down to the quality x

  3. I have an ebay version that was £2 and I love it - i just find it a bit 'high maintenance' because of how much you need to clean it - it's so good for concealer and for a lighter coverge of foundation. I find a little foundation goes a long way when i use the blender so its definitely one to add to the collection!!
