Easy and Smooth Makeup with beautyblender®

Since its launch a few years back, a lot of beauty enthusiasts have been raving about this tiny pink egg. I was pretty skeptical at first because I thought, what would be so different when it's just a sponge? I finally gave it a try and yes, people, it's different from your usual sponge. Read to the end to find out the difference I felt while using beautyblender®!

Name: Original (Pink)
Brand: beautyblender®
Origin: USA
Price: SGD 30 (IDR 340.000)

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.

To use:
wet. beautyblender® with water
squeeze. out the excess liquid, using a towel if available
bounce.primer, foundation, powder, cream blush or any other complexion product across the face for flawless results.

beautyblender® does really doubles in size when wet. This way, it could apply makeup without absorbing a lot of product. However, don't forget to squeeze the excess water out.
Compared to the others makeup sponge I've tried before, beautyblender® has different texture. beautyblender® is much smoother compared to other sponges. Apart from its plus points, one thing I don't really like is beautyblender® is really hard to clean even with beautyblender® cleanser. Perhaps it's because of its texture? The color will also wash off gradually in every wash.

One visible difference when using beautyblender® is the natural light finish, beautyblender® helps to apply the makeup smoothly but not thick, thus lighter makeup on the face. In addition, your makeup will be streak-free. While on the other hand, regular sponge finishes with more coverage but the makeup felt a little bit thicker and heavier.

Considering the plus points, I could proudly say that beautyblender® is one of my holy-grail beauty tool I can't live without. The only thing holding me back from purchasing more is of course, its price. However, I think the price really worth the performance of this tiny pink egg.


Easy to use
Less product absorbed to the sponge
Light and natural finish
For streak-free makeup

Quite pricey for a single sponge
Quite hard to clean
The color will wash off in every wash
