Rediscovering the Beauty Blender

In terms of make up habits, the honest truth is- I have never been a foundation person.
I find them fascinating. The claims for illuminated, pore less, perfect looking skin that supposedly lasts all day. 
I get sucked in, I sample, I purchase, but never use.

I hate the heavy feeling of make up on my face. I hate blending foundation, and after eight hours most look like crap on my face. The running liners, and blotchy blush sometimes don't help the cause, but I usually blame the foundation.

Recently I've had a look at my growing base collection-where all these come from a person who doesn't like bases mystifies me...

Every foundation in my collection I like or love. If it's meh it goes. 
Though they don't get as much love as they deserve I have recently been barging into my stash determined to find a way to get through these bases which I never finish.

I've been experimenting with brushes, hands, tools, and have rediscovered the beauty of the blender.

I bought this from both curiosity, and raves-oh yea it's also pink (duh!)
I didn't really get into it originally because once I sit at my make up table I'm READY to start and think to have to get up and wet this is too much of a hassle.

Recently I've been getting my arse up and growing this pink sponge under the faucet and application of foundations post this movement are now tolerable!

My thin foundations finally feel and look thinner. The coverage is lower but this is a preferred preference and in my book a win!

Bless you pink spongy goodness. 

I've heard the beauty blender also gives that barely there blush look with cream blushes- will keep you posted as I will try this asap!

So as a follow up I ask you:
Has anyone tried the mini ones? Are they worth it?
Has anyone else found a love this?
Gotta admit, they look so CUTE!


  1. I can see the appeal of the mini ones particularly for concealer. I've never tried the BB sponge because I feel like the cost is a bit ridiculous. I have been experimenting with the Qosmedix sponge and really enjoy it with solid cream foundations. For liquids I still use my hands or brushes.

  2. Yay, it's so great that you've found something to make your foundations work for you! I haven't tried the beauty blender but I have the Real Techniques sponge and I adore it. Really gives a one-with-skin look!

  3. This is the reason why I love to use the beauty blender! ^__^
    I also hate feeling like I'm wearing makeup & why I tend to be "lazy" and not apply at all most of the time.

  4. I aaaaaalways go back to my trusted beauty blender :-) Best foundation tool ever.

  5. i didn't get this at first, but bought it during a VIB sale, and this winter I am totally loving it! I think the little ones are so cute too!

  6. Hi! Recently I've also re-discovered this little tool and I love the airbrushed finish it gives. But sometimes I feel like you with the extra little effort it takes to get it ready to be used. I'd love to see the micro one in action too though!
