For The Original Beauty Blender
What it is: A latex-free makeup sponge that delivers natural, light coverage.
Key Ingredients: Sponge?
How it feels/looks: The sponge is sot and bouncy. It has an egg shape to fit all contours of the face. I feel like the Beauty Blender is not really worth the money. It sucks up a lot of product (my foundation) and that is with using the Beauty Blender damp. It only really lasts for three months of use.
Why I like it: I loved it within the first three months of using it. It was using up foundations and bb creams that I really didn’t like and it delivered a natural looking finish. The sponge gets dirty fast and the longer you have the sponge, the harder it is to get clean. It seemed to take forever for the water to run clean. The sponge also started to deteriorate on me, which left little bits of sponge on my face. I wouldn’t buy this again. I would rather use disposable sponges and throw them out everyday. I have recently been enjoying my foundation brush from The Body Shop again, so I have been using that and rinsing it out everyday.

I’ve always thought these were cute and heard good things but the idea of a sponge falling apart on your face doesn’t sound great.
It started to do that at the four or five month mark. If you can spend 20 dollars on a sponge every three months, then I would recommend it. I’d rather spend that kind of money or brushes that basically last forever. My brush that I paid 30 USD for is going on 5 years, I believe.
The brush sounds like a much better value in comparison. Otherwise it’s 60-80 dollars a year, which can probably be spent more practically on something else.
For sure! I want to buy a buffing brush or a kabuki brush for my foundation/bb cream. I feel like it would be much better at blending.
Usually I just use my hands when blending mine and it looks fine? At least with bb/cc cream. Probably shouldn’t blend foundation with your hands. I think my sister has a mini kabuki brush and likes it.
Some times hands just don’t do though, especially if you want more coverage.
I suppose. I have a cc cream sample and I usually only notice a slight difference, but creams aren’t supposed to be full coverage anyway really.
Nope, they are not, but they are buildable with a brush or sponge.
I should probably try to remember that if I’m trying to cover something up. lol.
