The Original Beauty Blender

I haven’t been satisfied with the way my foundation and stippling brushes have been applying my foundation recently. I found the thicker consistency of my foundation (Rimmel Wake Me Up) teamed with the synthetic fibers of my brushes left the finish streaky and hard to work with.
I’ve read many good reviews about the Beauty Blender Sponge (one that comes to mind…Keeping Up With Me) and I decided to purchase one to see if it would revolutionize the way I apply my foundation.
The Beauty Blender has been designed to ensure makeup application is foolproof. It's egg shaped design allows even coverage to larger surface areas such as your cheeks and forehead and its narrow rounded tip is perfect to cover trickier areas like the corner of your nose and under eyes.

To use, you apply your foundation or concealer using a stippling (dabbing) motion, as mentioned above it allows even coverage and a flawless finish - I would be very surprised if you were dissapointed with this product after the first use.   
Conventional makeup sponges often soak up a lot of product forcing you to use a lot more than you need however with the Beauty Blender you dampen the sponge in water prior to use which eliminates makeup soaking into the Beauty Blender and assisting in proving a flawless finish to your foundation.

The Beauty Blender almost doubles in size when wet
Sponges (especially damp ones) are prone to be a bacteria breeding ground so be sure to clean after each use. The Beauty Blender line does have its own cleanser product available to purchase separately or together in a pack however, I have been satisfied using my Elf Anti Bacterial Brush Shampoo.

The Beauty Blender has shaved off minutes to my morning makeup routine as it makes makeup so quick and easy to apply and because it’s a soft sponge (similar feel to memory foam) no effort is required when wanting to create a flawless finish.

The Beauty Blender can be purchased in various outlets online and in store internationally, visit http://www.beautyblender.net/buy.html for further information. I purchased my Beauty Blender online at Crush Cosmetics for $24.95 (AUD).


  1. I have never in all the years of using foundation applied it using a brush, I always use sponges, so this does appeal at the moment I just buy cheap ones at Boots :)

  2. I've heard many good things about this sponge! lol im such a lazy person still using my fingers to apply make up when i have bought a bunch of brushes!

  3. I have seen so many people use this blender I may have to try it.
