Beauty Blender
Has anybody used this sponge applicator before? I used it for the first time today and am converted. I was sceptical at first (I figured it would just be as good as a regular sponge) but the coverage was seriously perfect.

You can get more information at the website -

http://www.beautyblender.net/

I would love to hear more reviews!

I've heard about it, but I haven't tried it out myself since I don't think they have it where I live..and I only found one on ebay, and it was quite expensive..

I used it again today and I am seriously in love with it I use it for my foundation and also my creme blush. The application is flawless

Make sure to watch the instruction video before you use it, the sponge didn't actually come with instructions for me.

Did you get the sponge cleaner too Loonaka?

Yes I did since I've heard that it's the only way to clean your sponge^^ What kind of foundation do you use? I've heard that you can only use it on liquide foundation no cream or powder ones. Also could you please tell me how much you have to pay for it where you live? It's a bit expensive here in Norway..but then again I bought mine from the US on ebay..but it takes forever to get it..

I can't wait for you to try out the cute sponge!


When you get the cleanser, read the ingredients! I can bet you Isopropyl Alcohol will be the first thing on the list! You can just clean your sponge with that.

The cleanser ingredients are - deionized water, vegetable-based cleansing and sudsing aents, mild surfacants, emulsifiers & fragrance

Lookaka - I use a cream foundation (givenchy skin tonic stretch cream) and have also used the sponge for my blush (becca lip & cheek creme/creme blush & by terry rose de rose liquid blush) I don't think it would on a powder foundation because the sponge needs to be damp when using it for application, but if it works with the cream blush it might work with the cream foundations? It might only work for the blush because it's such a small area that you're applying it to, not your whole face.

I ordered mine from an online retailer that specialises in shipping the Beauty Blender to Australia - http://www.nouveauvisage.com.au/ I ordered the $49 starter kit (sponge and cleanser) and from memory shipping was around $8AUD. I have to say, it's worth it.

If you haven't seen the tutorial, here it is:
