beautyblender original makeup sponge
What it is:
An edgeless, non-disposable, high-definition cosmetic sponge applicator.
What it does:
The unique shape and exclusive material available only with beautyblender® ensures impeccable, streak-free application with minimum product waste. Use it with foundations, powders, and any other complexion product. Now, the award-winning makeup sponge is available in a fun, limited-edition canister—fit for any beauty queen.
What else you need to know:
Beautyblender’s unique material is aqua-activated™. When wet, it expands to about twice its size and becomes super soft to create an even, smooth blend and bounce, returning to its original size when it air dries.
Beautyblender has chosen to use non-toxic, water-soluble dyes. For this reason, your beautyblender may shed dye for the first couple of washes—similar to a pair of blue jeans. Once you squeeze the water out of the beautyblender, the excess dye is removed as well. The dye does not transfer to the skin.
Beautyblenders are hand-finished in the USA.

I use it for both my foundation (liquid and airbrush) and under eye concealer as the tip makes getting into the corners of the eyes and around the nose easy with no missed spots. The best way to use it is either to apply your liquid foundation with your fingers first then bounce and/or roll the damp beauty blender to evenly distribute product. With the airbrush, I spray on my face then dab the beauty blender over my face before spraying product directly to the sponge and applying that to areas I want more coverage such as my nose. If people are saying it eats up product, they're probably using the sponge dry; which of course will make it absorb the product which is why using it damp is so important.
Also, be sure to clean your beauty blender with your keep.it.clean mitt or solid cleanser after each use to prevent the build-up of bacteria.

I didn’t have any trouble cleaning my beauty blender at all. The sponge is really easy to clean with the blender cleanser solid. It is by far the best sponge and brush cleaner I’ve used and is now the only cleanser I use for my makeup tools. The keep.it.clean also make it really easy to get makeup out of my sponges and brushes. Previously, I was using a silicon fave scrubber to clean my brushes, but the keep.it.clean is a great size to make and makes is a lot faster to clean my tools.
However, if you cannot afford a beauty blender, the knock off ones on amazon or the sponges from realtechniques also work well! And for cleaning, baby shampoo also works wonders at cleaning brushes and sponges! beautyblender blendercleanser solid
As someone who doesn't really use makeup that often, honestly because I don't really know how or take the time to learn, this was very very easy to use!
My daily look is to use concealer and foundation to cover up my acne scars and uneven skin tone. In the past I've used my hands to apply or if the product came with a brush. With the beauty blender, it made it SO much easier. It would apply the make up so flawlessly and cover all the areas I'd typically miss. I don't need to use my fingers or brushes anymore!! What I love most is that it doesn't make me look cakey and I don't have to use a lot of make up either. Love love love this product! Now I am more inclined to put on make up.
I finally caved when I got some mini blenders as a stocking stuffer. I was instantly hooked.
I have tried other sponges that have not held up to washing. But not these. Other sponges have also crumbled or lost shape. Again, not these.
These blend perfectly and don’t leave marks like brushes sometimes do where you can see the lines of the brush in your makeup.
I have the minis which I use around my eyes and nose. I use the larger one on the rest of my face.
I also spray these with MAC prep and prime spray or Mario Badescu rosewater spray before I use them.
They wash well and I can see I will definitely be able to use them for a couple months with proper care. My drugstore brand sponges last for 2 or 3 uses before I have to throw them away so I figure this is worth the investment
