PRODUCT REVIEW - EBAY BEAUTY BLENDER



Beauty Blender - £1.98

You may have already heard about the beauty blenders but for those of you who haven't, a beauty blender is a sponge make up applicator mainly used to apply foundation. It's basically a substitute for brushes or your fingers and aims to leave your foundation buffed in without any lines or marks. I'm not sure if I'm actually allowed to call this sponge a beauty blender because it's not actually from them, it's from eBay but you get the idea. Now I'm not saying this £2 version is comparable to the £15 'official' one because it probably isn't but this little sponge is actually the best thing I've ever used to apply my foundation, i simply love it. I find i use a lot less product using this and it leaves my skin looking a lot more dewy and not as caked on as i sometimes find with brushes. It bounce on the skin beautifully and leaves me with an all over natural finish, not bad for a £2 sponge hey?

*I changed the link to the seller as the other one had put the price up to £50!

  1. I bought the exact same one & I hate it haha! It absorbs all of my foundation so I end up looking all patchy. I'd be interested to know how you use it... I might be doing it completley wrong! x x

  8. I worry with these that they will cake the make-up on. I always need something which applies naturally. Would love to read a review of this though :)

  9. I've always wanted to try one of these. I'd like to see how you use it or the effect you get from this versus brushes? Maybe side by side comparison photos? x

  10. I'm going to sound so weird, but, THE SONGE IS SO CUTE. Reminds me of Zingy (the little creature from the EDF Energy adverts). Ahaha! great review- I'd rather spend 2 pounds than 15! xx

  12. I honestly don't really know how to use sponges. I had those flat round make sponges, but I never managed to get round to how to use them !

  13. I have a Beauty Blender..but don't use it much. I just HAVE to clean it up right away..soon as I use it..and I don't usually have to the time to do that..so I just use a brush most times. Love the finish it gives, though!

  14. I recently bought the Cosmopolitan blending sponge, it's pink and looks exactly like this one! I love it! Although I've got to ask, how do you clean it? I tried to use the normal method of shampoo and water but it doesn't seem to clean out the foundation completely? x

  15. £2 is so much better than £15 especially if it's still a good quality sponge. So tempted to buy one! xo

  16. I'd thought about buying one of these but didn't want to spend £15 on something I wasn't sure about, definitely gonna have a hunt on ebay for it now!

  18. £2 is I think already better than £15. We could see the difference with that. :)

  19. Completely agreeabout brushes, I recently decided I wanted to start using them, but the effect it gives is not for me! I like a much more natural look.
    £2 is bargainous, and I don't think you can go far wrong with it as it's only a sponge, at the end of the day! The more expensive one can't be all that different.
