Some of you may already know about the Beauty Blender. That magical pink sponge that applies makeup flawlessly and makes your skin appear airbrushed. But let's be real, who wants to fork over $20 for a makeup sponge? Well I did, because it is just that awesome! But you know how I like testing out new products and I found a good one. I was shopping at my favorite online retailer, Camera Ready Cosmetics and came across a duplicate sponge with rave reviews. Customer comments included, "Oh, it is just like the Beauty Blender!" "This sponge is so much better than the Beauty Blender!" " This sponge is awesome!" Well, with all the positive accolades, I just had to try it out for myself. Now let me tell you, FORGET about the Beauty Blender, buy this instead! At $7 a sponge, you can buy three of these babies for a buck more than the price of one Beauty Blender. The sponge also comes in a variety of colors, such as red, black, purple and pink. Also, the hour glass shape of the Camera Ready Quick Blend Sponge is so much cuter than the Beauty Blender :) And for those of you that are not familiar with how these sponges work, here ya go:
- Place sponge under running water.
- Squeeze sponge a couple of times until it is full of with water.
- Squeeze excess water onto towel.
- Pick up some foundation with the sponge.
- Stipple all over skin.
You will notice that you end up using a lot less foundation. You will also notice that your sponge is now filthy with foundation. No worries, these sponges are reusable and will last you months with proper cleaning! The Camera Ready Quick Blend Sponge gets Vanita's Seal of Approval.
