Foundation brush? Who the heck needs a foundation brush when you have a Beauty Blender?? Not me! I should be ashamed of myself for not telling you about how amazing Beauty Blenders are years ago. I mean, I should be yelling from the mountain tops about these sponges. I love them that much!

I got my very first Beauty Blender over 2 years ago and I enjoyed it so much that I bought another. They’re a little pricey for a makeup sponge but the quality is superb! Not only does it blend out liquid, cream and powder products to perfection but it holds up over time too. The one I’m showing you today has been around for over a year and has helped me to achieve a flawless, airbrush finish on myself and my clients.

The Beauty Blender sponge has a small, simple egg shaped design that features a rounded bottom with a pointed tip. It feels super soft to the touch and can be used wet or dry to apply your makeup like a pro. I find that it works well dry but using it damp gives the best results. I love to use my Beauty Blender for foundation but it works very well with concealer, highlighting and contouring too. It just does it all! You can even use it to dab cream blush onto the apples of your cheeks too. Oh, and did I mention that it’s much faster than using a brush? You’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ve applied your makeup once you start stippling away!

The only thing that I don’t like about the Beauty Blender sponge is that it can be hard to clean. It stains very easily so you’ll have to put in a little elbow grease to keep it pretty and pink. The Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser works incredibly well though so I recommend grabbing one. It gets your sponge twice as clean and in half the time that other cleansers would. I know $20 is a lot to drop on a sponge (or $30 for 2) but the Beauty Blender is quite the investment. It’s quick and easy to use plus it lasts for years with proper care. I highly recommend trying out a Beauty Blender soon!

  • I find it pretty easy to clean with baby shampoo to be honest. Or at least not any harder than cleaning a foundation brush is. I’ve been using the pink egg for years now 🙂

      Maybe it’s because my foundation is darker? The staining can be really bad sometimes. I’m going to try baby shampoo and see if I have better luck. Thank you!

    I still haven’t taken the plunge. I’m afraid it’ll use up too much foundation, but mostly I’m not sure how to maneuver the darn thing. If it didn’t cost so dang much, I’d buy one to experiment 😉

      LOL it’s so funny you say that because I was the same way. It does absorb a bit of your foundation but not too much. It’s much easier to use than you think though! Try a quick demo the next time you go to Sephora! I think you’ll like it 🙂

      I was the exact same way! I just recently purchased a dupe and while it gets the job done it’s nothing like my BB. It’s holy grail!
