The OG Beauty Blender - Is It Something You Need?*


I'd always been a makeup brush kinda gal when it comes to my base, until recently. I went a bit sick on Cult Beauty cos I had a 15% off discount code and zero self restraint [obv] and picked up the Beauty Blender x Toofaced Beauty Sleep Set - which I consequently professed my love for pretty strongly across me socials. And then, a bit like that manifesting theory I read about sometimes on Twitter, my baes at Beauty Blender only went and sent me the OG of blenders - their Original Beauty Blender* in bright pink [#Goals] and that was that. Love secured.

I've never rly liked sponge applicators until recently. Why? I'm not sure. I think it's most likely been because a] I was uneducated and using them dry [pls, what is my life] and b] I was using knock-off Nigels from Primark & some cheapo ones from China. It has become very apparent that original is best when it comes to results - no other sponges I've tried [bar my Basic Beauty Tools sponges & my Ciara Daly ones] have even come close to how effective the OG Beauty Blender is.

Beauty Blender's sponges have [very, very rapidly] become my go to tool to apply foundation & blend out my concealer with. They're beautifully soft, not too porous, blend like an absolute dream and they don't drag & lift makeup around as you work it in. Unlike the cheap imitation ones, which leave me looking patchy AF [rly wanted to make a Patchy the Pirate pun then, but I'll refrain, just in case yous think I'm too punny to cope with.] The blenders I've tried from them leave my face looking even, flawless [which is a minor miracle, given how grim my mug is] and with a beautifully natural - yet buildable - level of coverage; which doesn't leave my face feeling cakey.

If you'd have asked me a few months ago 'Do I need a Beauty Blender girl?' I'd have probably said 'Dunno m8, I'm a brush kinda queen'... but now, I honestly couldn't cope with adult life without my lil collection of them. They work so well in applying, blending and in building coverage of my current favourite base product - the Revolution Pro Foundation Drops ... and I can't imagine ever going back to brushes when it comes to foundation ever again

And that's a strong statement, coming from me; who used to be pretty underwhelmed by blending sponges. But you know why don't ya - it's cos I was using knock off, cheapo versions, and in this case; they don't even come close to the performance of the OG Beauty Blender.  If you don't have one [or three, like me] in your stash, I can confirm that these sponges are very much something you need. Immediately.

Have you tried the Original Beauty Blender - or any of their other releases before?
