For years I've heard about how wonderful the beauty blender is. Youtubers, bloggers, influencers, famous makeup artists all raved about it.
But I refused to buy it.
I felt like it was wayyyy over priced, It's about $20 for the original sponge (which they recommend you to throw away after 3 months, for sanitary reasons).
Then a few days ago I broke down and bought it... I think my years of curiousity got the best of me.
When I got home from Sephora I immediately ripped open the container and found this teenie tiny hot pink sponge...I thought to myself "you have to be kidding me, this is worth $20?!". I submerged the blender in water and it grew about twice the size (thankfully).
The first time I used the sponge, I was amazed at how quickly it blended my makeup! I normally struggle alternating between a foundation brush and my real techniques sponge to get it completely smooth.
After a couple of days using the beauty blender, I discovered my favorite parts:
#1 is that it has no edges. You can literally get into every little corner and wrinkle in your face, for example under your eyes.
#2 It barely absorbs any product, so you waste less product (compared to your typical sponge)
#3 it makes your makeup look more natural
I never thought I'd say this, but I honestly see why the beauty community loves this little hot pink sponge.
BUT IS IT WORTH SPENDING about $80 dollars a year in sponges?!
I honestly think it depends on you, your lifestyle, and how much you budget for makeup.
Who might really benefit from this product (in my opinion):
Who wouldn't benefit (as much) from the beauty blender:
I still think the beauty blender is overpriced, it delivers amazing results, but then again it's just a sponge (but a weirdly amazing sponge haha!). If you want one, get one. I will repurchase the beauty blender in the future, but I will probably alternate between buying the beauty blender and other sponges to save a bit more money :) Or I'll just ask for a bunch of beauty blenders for the holidays haha!
thanks for reading and as always....
have a beautiful (and blended) day,
