|Beauty Blenders on Mar 08, 2016 @ 12:09 am|
Honestly - I have tried so many - from "The Beauty Blender" Sponge /Tool to the inexpensive drugstore versions & big box store cosmetic wedges! I think it really depends on what look you are going for & what product you are applying, using a primer, etc. Personal experience I love using my "official" beauty blender for contouring - but actually prefer the generic "Joe Fresh" angle sponges I buy for spreading primer & use my fave chisel brush for 4-1 Foundation & brushes for finishing with liquid if required. Use what you're comfortable with

Great advice! I usually just use a foundation brush, a powder brush and a bronzer brush. They all worked well , and do what i want. I just was curious what difference a beauty blender would do for me, and if there was actually that much of a difference.

I got my best friend one from ebay for $1.89, she really likes using it. It didn't take so long for shipping neither.
Here, I found this one on ebay for a good price

You're supposed to saturate the sponge and squeeze the water out then apply the product. The silicone based regular sponges don't give the same results.

I thought the Beauty Blender was a gimmick until I finally broke down and bought one. It blends my makeup like no other. Totally worth the splurge, IMHO. I haven't tried the Real Techniques version but I hear it's the closest thing to a dupe.

I truly feel that the expensive one is worth it. I use if for foundation,concealer, highlight,cream blush, and bronzer. I think the final result and it's versatility make it a good value.

I also heard the RealTechniques is the best budget version of it if you don't want to splurge, but I haven't got one myself yet (though I'd love to!)

I use the original beauty blender, but didn't start appreciating it until I started following the instruction about moistening it first. Makes all the difference.

Thanks ladies! I'll check out some of the reviews on YouTube too and get some tutorials at the same time! :)
