I have another beauty review for you today. I love make up brushes, everyone knows I am a brush girl. I never use my fingers to apply foundation and I have never tried a blending sponge like the beauty blender.
First of all its packaged beautifully. I am a sucker for baroque patterns too.
As you can see the design is more complex than other beauty sponges. There is a fine tip which is great for getting high coverage on small intricate areas such as around your nose. Then a flat edge which is the perfect size for doing contours and blending under eye concealer. The round waist makes it ergonomically great, so easy to hold. Then the base of the sponge is perfectly circular for all- round blending.
Before the first use you must wet it gently for it to expend a little, honestly I didn't notice much expansion but it does work much better slightly damp....only slightly you don't want any excess water. It really does give a more flawless base and with the right foundation was it could give a near to air-brushed look. I am still a brush application girl as using a sponge does take a bit longer to blend everything in especially if you are using it for you powder, blush and concealer too but for a more formal or full faced make up look it is 100% worth it,
Another great thing about this as like all products from Nanshy is 100% vegan and cruelty free. The thing that makes this sponge stand out from all the other sponges is the price as it is outstanding quality for only £5.95. It goes on sale in February but you can re-order it here.
Do you use the original beauty blender or a dupe? Or are you more of a brushes girl like myself?
