When I first heard about the beauty blender and how everyone was going crazy over it, it did not interest me at all, "it's just a sponge..." I thought. Usually normal sponge can absorb all the product of your face and I was expecting the Beauty Blender to do the same.
So, I finally gave one a try and it was amazing, it gives a lovely healthy look especially if you're using it damp which apparently is the proper way to use it but you can also use it dry, still works great. if you don't have a beauty blender then guurl, get yourself a beauty blender. The original one costs about £16 which isn't bad at all if you compare it to other high end brushes/sponges. I still wanted to experiment with even cheaper makes because there are a lot of drugstore beauty blenders out there, all shapes and sizes.
Here are the three sponges I purchased from drugstore which I'm going to review, Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, Lottie Blend and Snap Sponge and the B. Latex-free Blending Sponge.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
This is my favorite one out all three sponges, especially the fact that it's not a normal shaped blender, it has three distinct surfaces that give three different ways to apply foundation/concealer, the rounded sides are to blend large areas of the face (personally, I like to use to conceal under-eye), the precision tip is to cover blemishes and imperfections and finally the flat edge for contours around the eyes and nose which, honestly makes contouring so much easier. the bad news is, using this sponge dry does soak some of that foundation or concealer so I recommend using it damp.
What do you apply your base with?
