Amazing Foundation Applicator, July 28, 2010
sailor “sailor hill” (CA, United States)
This review is from: Beautyblender, The Ultimate MakeUp Sponge Applicator, 2 sponges. (Misc.)
I am a licensed cosmetologist in California. I’ve been through MANY brushes and sponges of all kinds to get a flawless foundation application. So far NOTHING has come close to this amazing “Beautyblender” sponge. The super-fine texture makes sure you don’t get uneven coverage yet allows for a flawless finish. This does not let your foundation cake into the fine-lines, or deep lines, as other applicators do. I have tried using a ‘Smashbox’ foundation for over a year (determined to apply it professionally) and the brush that came with it never came close to second against this sponge! The foundation is now a professional airbrushed look because of this sponge. I am elated and very glad I discovered and picked up the double pack of this sponge – I will NEVER apply foundation without it again. I use my ‘Philosophy’ Cleanser and the sponge cleanes out phenomenally. Make sure you wash it after each application and allow it to air-dry so no bacteria will build up.*Hint: don’t try to cover all your imperfections in one go. Allow the first light application to dry, then apply another thin layer over the trouble areas. This makes for a more realistic coverage.–Sailor Hill, CA
What You Need To Know Before Purchasing a Beauty Blender, February 13, 2014
-With the damp sponge, you carefully tap the side of the sponge that you want to use (broad for large spots and narrow for narrow areas) and you bounce the sponge off of your skin quickly and making sure that you cover a lot of area before reloading the sponge, you cover your face with makeup.
-IT WILL OFTEN LOOK LIKE YOU ARE NOT APPLYING ENOUGH- resist the temptation to apply too much.
-With the tip of the sponge, blend the areas around the nose and inner eye, etc, well but lightly.
You can also use this for cream blush and cream eyeshadow if you like(using the tip), but remember, you have to wash the sponge in between or you will get muddy makeup.
They have a special cleanser you can buy that is made for the sponge, but I use Dr Bronner’s Castile soap diluted down or non sodium lauryl sulfate cleansers that are gentle (Avalon hand soap is one example) so that it won’t deteriorate the sponge.
Easy to use, lasts a long time
Gives airbrush finish
Makes cream makeup products not dry out as quickly
Pink color will wash out for a while and look scary, but it is fine
Can stain with some products
WHAT THIS IS NOT GOOD FOR
This sponge is not particularly suitable for
Blush that is not cream
All in all the Beauty Blender is one of the most important tools that I have in my kit for cream foundations and blush. I use it for doing foundation on men as well as women, and when using the right products, they are virtually undetectable when using the Beauty Blender as the application tool. When using brushes or conventional cosmetic sponges, the results took more effort. It is worth the money if you use these on a regular basis or if you have special occasions you want to look just right for.
