Beauty Blender

Posted in product review by tokyostargirl on July 7, 2008

The key to a perfect face is simple: a perfect blend. So forget your fingers or sharp-edged triangular sponges, these application methods waste make up and can leave visible streaks. Beautyblender’s patent-pending elliptical shape makes application foolproof by allowing you to access hard-to-reach areas with stunning ease. Its suede texture is sensual to the touch and its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your make up dazzling and undetectable. Beautyblender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free.

Directions: Blend your way to a flawless face! Seeing make up is the first sign of an amateur application. Beautyblender was created without edges in order to eliminate visible lines and streaks. So go ahead, experiment fearlessly with your Beautyblender and discover the many ways its unique shape will set you free!

Bounce Beautyblender against your face when applying make up. Bouncing, called stippling in the make up world, blends make up without creating changes in the texture or tone of your skin. Use Beautyblender’s pointed side for hard-to-reach spots like around the nose and mouth, and under the eyes.

Use the round base for foundation and blush on the larger areas of your face such as your forehead, cheeks and chin. If you apply make up with your fingers you’ll find that Beautyblender will smooth and refine your make up to provide a clean finish.

Use Beautyblender damp when applying wet/dry make up. When Beautyblender is wet it is normal for it to expand to nearly twice its original size. Wash after use and place in the Beautyblender insert pedestal to dry.

You can also put Beautyblender in the Beautyblender pouch and toss it in the dryer. Be sure to use an air-dry setting; Beautyblender should not come in contact with extreme heat of any kind. If you have problem skin Beautyblender works to cover blemishes. Use the pointed end and the stipple and twist technique to work make up into depressed areas of the face. The stippling and twisting action feathers out the makeup’s edges, leaving a perfect finish.

My review: It does what it says it will. I never really used sponges that much anyway – before I started working with makeup, I didn’t wear foundation at all. Once I started, I always applied it with a foundation brush to get the look I want. One day I came across this online and with all the wonderful reviews – I knew I had to try it. It seemed like one of those hidden secrets and I am all about that! I thought to myself, how can a sponge be THAT good – I mean come on, could it really be worth $20? Well now that I’ve used it, yes I think it’s worth it. I don’t use it too often, only when I am going out somewhere nice (when I would need to look the part). I would use it more often, but I’m so use to my brushes that it’s easier for me. If you are use to using sponges, then this will be your HG (holy grail – used in the makeup world as your #1). I just bought the sponge, you can just clean it with soap (although I’m sure the brush cleanser will work better). The foundation gets on there and it will stain (even if you wash it) – at first it really frustrated me, but only because I’m anal like that and like all my makeup things clean. I give this product an A-
