beautyblender

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.

Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wear Foundation

I have zero issues with this foundation. It sets to a beautiful matte finish but is not dry or drying, the coverage is excellent yet it’s very skin-like. The bottle is nothing short of ingenious and it’s not crazy expensive. I haven’t experienced much oxidation although I have yet to wear a decent coverage foundation with absolutely none. Although I’ll say this; WnW photo finish liquid is amazing in that respect and honestly I would say it’s a runner up to this, the most notable differences would be ww is dryer in finish, smells like deck paint and costs a lot less. I love this foundation and I’ve been using it for a few weeks with no complaints.

This is a very pleasant surprise splurge for me and I fell in love with this product! While it claims to be a serum face primer, I found that the texture wasn't exactly the same as I would compare with a regular serum product I can find in kbeauty. Its slightly thicker, but not overly gooey. It really does live up to its claim of giving an instant glow the moment you apply this on your face! Personally I only require a small amount and use my Smashbox buffing foundation brush and apply on areas that I would like to "glow" - eg cheekbones and forehead, and not necessarily my entire face. It smooths out my texture while giving me the "glow within" look. After applying my regular foundation (beautyblender bounce atm), it really gives off a soft finish, and mimics like my natural skin! As I don't really consider this as a long lasting primer, I can't comment much on its longevity, but definitely a good 6-7 hrs on a normal working day is good enough for me. Another plus point is that it comes in a squeeze tube so you can have a lot of control on how much you'd like to dispense. Because I don't use this in huge amounts, this can definitely last me for a long time despite its price. I really recommend this to people with normal skin and looking for that "natural skin like finish, glow from within" look. I just feel like this is not something to miss out on! 100% would repurchase it again if I ever run out. Hope this helps!
