Beauty Blender- Worth the hype?
I was very kindly sent a beauty blender* by the lovely people at Beauty Flash and was thrilled to finally get to put the infamous sponge to the test.
I started by soaking it in cold water then squeezing the excess out 3-5 times, once it was damp I first used it to apply my concealer, I usually find with sponges it leaves a textured look in your make-up but because you apply this with a wet sponge the problem is avoided all together. To set the concealer I then went in with a setting powder and decided to try this with a wet sponge also, which I was nervous about. I dipped it in the powder then applied it to my face and found it looked amazing and a lot less cakey than when applied with a dry sponge. It gave the effect of using a setting spray without actually using a setting spray.
On the beauty front I was really pleased but as with all sponges, I was worried about the hygiene. With most of my sponges I throw them away after a week of use, but with this sponge coming at £16 a pop, you can't really afford to do it with this product. So, after religiously washing it with the solid cleanser after every use I kept an eye out for any problem areas on my face for a month- and there were none!
This product leaves an airbrushed finished and is surprisingly hygienic. Buy for £16 here and the solid cleanser for £14 here.
(Also, how cute is the colour?)
