So there has been a buzz around beauty blenders for a little while now and I came to knowledge about the tear dropped shaped sponges from my daily browsing on youtube. Many of the beauty guru’s on youtube actually bought the beauty blender that costs £16. I decided not to part with sixteen of my hard earned GBP sterling for a face sponge because to me, that an unjustifiable spend.
I choose the more cost effective edition by cosmopolitan (the one on the right). I’ve been using it for a few months now and find that it works very well. I use mine damp (I run it under the tap) then dab it into my foundation then dab it onto my face and I wash it with a bar of soap after use. I do find it a bit hard to wash sometimes but I must say, cleaning it with a bar of soap is much more effective than shampoo.
It’s quite reliable in giving me an even coverage and leaves my face with a healthy glow. Since I was so impressed by my first beauty blender, I wanted to buy another version of it and to my surprise I saw one in Primark for £1.50. As giddy as I was I bought two and rushed home to use my new friends.
When I got home to start using it I was disappointed to say the least. The sponge is so dry and drinks every bit of liquid you give it. When I ran it under the tap, it didn’t inflate at all it just stayed in its rock like posture.
When I dabbed it in my foundation it literally drank it all and there was nothing left to apply to my face! Such a waste of money and now I have two rock hard sponges. The point is if you see this sponge don’t buy it! Just spend the extra couple of pounds on the cosmopolitan one which is way worth the money. I would suggest buying a new sponge every so often as it does tend to rip when you wash it sometimes.
Do you guys know of any good and reasonably priced beauty blenders?
