Beautyblender was created in 2002 by Rea Ann Silva, a makeup artist who worked as a makeup department head for one of the first television shows shot in HD. The sponge was invented to allow for a flawless foundation finish (aka the "airbrush effect"). It became widely available for purchase in 2007 and has sold 6.5 million sponges to date.

Misc Beauty Tools -beautyblender -the sponge

on 12/5/2018 6:53:00 PM


All these years I resisted. $20 for a sponge? Really, how could it be worth it? But one day I came across a sale/deal on the Too Faced website, some other products along with this for a great deal, and now I can't imagine ever being without a Beauty Blender again. I used the Real Techniques sponge before, and I thought it was good. Now I joke that using that sponge after using this amazing one is like hitting my face with a brick. Yes, that's an exaggeration, but it really does feel hard now compared to this. It is so soft, and it blends my makeup so well. It just does wonderful things. I find it pretty easy to clean. I like the liquid Blender Cleanser the best, but it cleans up fine with other cleaners. The Blender Cleanser is just my favorite because it cleans well and rinses out really easily. Anyhow, I will try to find ways to get a deal on the Beauty Blender (getting it in a set, sales, coupons), but would I pay $20 for it on it's own? Yep. Obviously, it's overpriced. But sometimes something overpriced is worth it, and this is one of those things.

Misc Beauty Tools -beautyblender -Beauty blusher sponge


This is the only true beautyblender I cannot live without. I do absolutely love the original, though these days I merely use the original (or a comparable dupe) as a finisher after applying my foundation with a brush. I typically will go over my face quickly with a sponge to blend out any brush strokes, etc. The blusher, however, is a true necessity for me when applying & blending under eye concealer. I haven’t been able to find a dupe for it (though one or two have come close). The microblender is too tiny and the blusher is everything I wanted and hoped to get out of the microblender. Oddly enough, I rarely use this to blend any cream cheek products. Now that beautyblender is a available in a lot of retailers other than Sephora, it is fairly easy to find a discount/promo code/sale and get any of their products for less money. Try this for undereye concealer. You will not regret it!

Foundations -beautyblender -Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wear Foundation

on 8/18/2018 7:22:00 PM


I am actually really liking this foundation .... I understand the issues of many regarding color choices and I do agree, however, that is my only negative as I find that this foundation is perfect for my normal skin. I moisturize, use Too Faced's Hangover primer and then apply my foundation .... I use barely half a pump for a full face and then a teensy more on my discolorations (very buildable,) spritz with Too Faced's Hangover setting spray and sometimes set those areas that I need more foundation due to discolorations with Hourglass' setting powder and off I go. I do not have issues with this foundation looking cakey, sliding off, settling in fine/lines and/or pores (I guess I am lucky or perhaps because I have normal skin .... for me this foundation lasts from morning until I wash off at night.) I have tried so many foundations and this by far is my favorite ..... for reference I am an NW10 and even lighter in winter, and use this foundation in palest shade 1.1 .... I find this foundation a true neutral which I am and have had no issues with oxidation ..... I of course would love that this foundation was offered paler color selections, however, the 1.1 is doable for me. I give this foundation high scores as for me it is perfection. E.T.A ... 11/3/2018 .... still love this foundation and use it, however, Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Foundation in Shade 0 works better for my pale skin tone, however, I still use this and switch off with CT.

Misc Beauty Tools -beautyblender -blendercleanser solid chill swirl

on 3/30/2018 11:13:00 PM


I received this in a beauty exchange and I have to say I'm unimpressed. It's literally just a tiny amount of soap in a little tin, for $16, and I'm pretty sure it broke me out. I was fine till I cleaned my blender with this, then the day after using it the first time I got a pimple right in the middle of my forehead. I never get them there.

Yes, of course it cleans my blender and brushes. It's fancy soap. But you know what doesn't break me out and cleans them better, usually on the FIRST rinse unless they're really gunky? Regular cheap glycerine soap.

Go to amazon and order melt and pour glycerine soap base and aluminum lip gloss tins. Melt the soap, add any essential oil you'd like (such as tea tree for antibacterial properties), and pour it in the tins. Boom, you just made your own solid blender/brush cleaner and you have enough to last you probably a year for roughly the same price as one blendercleanser, possibly less. You can even use it for a gentle facial cleanser, just use a separate tin. If that's too much work just pick up a neutrogena glycerine bar, same thing.

Misc Beauty Tools -beautyblender -Red Carpet

on 2/26/2018 7:41:00 PM

I only tried Real Technique before this, so that was the one I compared to. I never owned the original pink Beautyblender and only bought this because it was on sale for $11 (which was still expensive in my opinion, but I was curious). The feeling when squeezing it dry is definitely different from the Real Technique one, and I could understand why people are crazy about the Beautyblender. It's a lot more bouncy even when it's dry. Then you run it under the water and squeeze off the water, it expands quite a lot. Like the other posters said, it bleeds, so the red doesn't stay and fades. It ends up being orange rather than red. I use Dawn dish soap to clean my sponges, and I rotate my sponges (Real Technique and one from Sephora) so I think all of them will last me a long time. In terms of application, I don't notice any difference with the finish, just a different degree of bounciness when applying foundation.
