Makeup tools make all the difference to how your makeup looks. Trust me. Makeup is a definite art, and every artist NEEDS some tools in their arsenal. Some four years back, a product revolutionized how foundation was applied.
It has bought the finesse of applying makeup to even those who are not trained makeup artists.
Today I am giving a heartfelt honest review of that very product –the Original Beauty blender.
What is it and who is it for?
It is a beauty makeup sponge used for blending makeup.

What the Brand Claims about The original Beauty Blender:
The world’s first edgeless, non-disposable, high-definition cosmetic sponge applicator. The unique shape and exclusive material available only with beautyblender® ensures impeccable, streak-free application with minimum product waste. Use it with primers, foundations, powders, cream blushes, and any other complexion product.
beautyblender® features an open cell structure that fills with small amounts of water when wet. This allows the sponge to be “full” so that the makeup product sits on top of the sponge rather than being absorbed, allowing you to use less product every time. When wet, beautyblender® doubles in size and becomes even softer, returning to its original size when it air dries.
Handcrafted in the USA.
At beautyblender® we choose to use safe, water-soluble dyes that do not harm the environment and will maintain the integrity of our proprietary foam. For this reason, you may notice some color run off the first time you wash beautyblender®. This is normal and will disappear after you have cleansed the product several times. Please note that the color will not transfer onto the face or clothing.
How to Use:
Beautyblender® is the easiest use
- Wet the blender with water
- Squeeze excess
- bounce on the skin for blending
Bounce to blend a primer, foundation, cream blush or any cream based product across the face for flawless results.
My Experience with The original Beauty Blender:
Beauty blender is a very useful product and has now a staple for makeup lovers as it does wonders on the skin. It blends even the toughest products on the skin flawlessly.
The color of the beauty blender is hot pink .it looks like a chicken egg.
‘It is supposed to be used when it is damp. Just place it under a tap of running water. Squeeze two three times to absorb moisture. Then finally squeeze well to remove excess water. By this time it would have doubled to its size. Now dot the product on face and “bounce “the beautyblender, really press in and you will see the flawless finish that the product claims!!
This product is NOT suitable for dry makeup i.e. powders etc as it has to be used damp and can give a cakey look.
The pink colored beautyblender catches the product color easily. So over a period of time you will see how it gets dirty. Still it is easy to clean.
In my opinion this should be kept clean to avoid contamination as it is it is used damp. You will not believe the horror stories I have read on the internet!!
Finally it IS a revolutionary product, use it and care or it and you will enjoy complete benefits of what it has to offer.
None of the cheaper alternatives have yet matched up to its excellent quality.
