Beautyblender: Tips & Tricks
I didn't realise these were the mini size... However find these easier to use than larger size especially for getting in around sides of the most and under eye. I love BB's and can't ever imagine going back to fingers and brush! The only reason I rated this 3 and not 5 was the cleaning kit. I ended up having to undo the top as no product would come out and clean my BB and brushes by pouring liquid out which seemed wasteful. The kit advises all your brushes can be cleaned using this however I found my brushes very stiff after drying, won't use this agin to clean them and going back to Mecca brush cleaner spray.
This makes all the difference
I really didn't follow the hype but, if you have dry patches or combo skin you need a beauty blender to get that flawless airbrushed look I use it for foundation concealer, powder, and contour! This is a must especially for makeup artist who new this tiny little sponge could do so much!
No Worth It
Honestly, There are plenty of sponges that are actually better quality. I found that the Beauty Blender is very fragile especially once you get it wet. It just breaks apart super easily and as all my brushes and sponges are well loved; it is too expensive for it to just break on me. The only thing good about it is the unique shape that has the point, however, that has been recreated with countless dupes. I think people THINK it's better simply because it's expensive and it has been hyped up so much. In reality it isn't much better than the dupes you can buy at Target.
I've had several different brands of blenders, but most acted as sponges, soaking up my product and wasting all of my money. This blender is much less porous, allowing the product to not be as easily absorbed, and creating an extremely even layer of coverage. I will NEVER go back to a simple brush for my foundation, this sponge is too amazing. LOVE LOVE LOVE
I heard about this product since December 2013, I decided to purchase it April 2014 for Easter since the prices were lowered. I have had this product for 2 months now. I would Recommend this product! It was great in doing is purpose. It was handy and took it with me everywhere. Now because of it's average size for ME it was able to get lot very quickly in my drawer, bag, etc. This was a problem because some times I have to do my makeup in a rush. Also I WOULD HIGHLY recommend that you buy the cleanser as well. The cleanser was great it kept it clean and looking new. This is highly recommended because it is a sponge and this sponge not only absorbed my make up BUT the dirt in my drawer, bag, etc. I could do without the product if I had to but it just makes it a bit easier and it only takes me like 5-15 minutes to clean it. I'd recommend this product WITH the cleanser. For the price I think this is a total steal! I can see myself repurchasing this product IF I had to like I lost it. Great product and would recommend!
