The Original Beauty Blender Review

 The desire to try out a Beauty Blender started soon after they hit the market. Everyone was crazy after this miracle sponge. The fact that it's not such a budget friendly product made me want to wait and see if I can get it on sale someday.
  Lucky for me, my wish came true last year, when I found this baby half price. I tried the Real Techniques sponge and my beloved Ebelin sponge, so now I can make a comparison and see which one is the best. Enjoy!
 In the beginning, the Beauty Blender could be found only in one colour, pink. Now, there are several colours available and other Beauty Blender tools meant to help you have a flawless makeup.
Beauty Blender's official description:
" 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."

  The colour of the Beauty Blender was a very bright red, when I bought it,  but when I washed it the colour started to wash off. I use almost 3 weeks now and the colour washes off every single time. In the beginning, I really thought that all that red will go onto my face, but luckily that wasn't the case.

  There are the steps that I follow every time I use the Beauty Blender (not only this but any other makeup sponge):
1. I put the Beauty Blender under the tap and squeeze it gently so the water soaks in evenly. I do this a few times until the Beauty Blender has doubled its size and them I squeeze all the extra water off.
2. I wrap the Beauty Blender in a towel and after that in a tissue to get all the extra water off.
3. I apply small dots of foundation on my face and with gentle moves, I dab it onto my face. I usually use the round part of my face and the pointy part of my eye and nose area.

-  Creates a flawless air-brushed finish
-  Easy to use
- Makes makeup application so much quicker
- Easy to cleanse
- Travel friendly

- Price
- Colour faded with usage and washing

After I have used all these sponges for a long period of time, I would have to say that in my opinion, the best one is the Ebelin makeup sponge. On the second place, I put the Real Techniques one and on the third place the Beauty Blender. 
I choose to put the Beauty Blender in the third place because of the price. If you don't find it on sale, I really believe that it's too expensive, especially with other better and cheaper options out there. But, once again, this is my personal opinion, so don't throw tomatoes, please :) 
   What is your opinion about the Beauty Blender? Have you tried the other sponges too?

  1. I love the beauty blender. I have it in pink and black. I heard also from other people that the colour is fade in the red sponge. With the black one that's never happened. I would love to try the Real Techninques sponge.

    Lots of love,


  2. am avut RT si acum beauty blender original. original imi place mai mult. te pupp

  3. I have the black one and I love it. I heard that many other girls had the same issue with the red one. :(

  4. Sa stii ca nu folosesc buretei, deci nu prea imi pot da cu parerea. Multumesc pentru recomandari.

  5. Really? The Ebelin one took the first place? I think it's different from the sponges we have here in Ro, a little sturdier for my taste and face. I love the RT one and honestly, i'm starting to really love the Avon one as well. It just blends my foundation so well, it looks like i'm not wearing anything. I tried once the original one, the same as you, bought it on sale, but it didn't last long. It actually started to break. I don't know, maybe i got one from a bad batch, but man, i'm glad i got it sale. I would've been beyond pissed if i paid full price :)))))

  6. I have one from DM and it was cheap and very good.

  7. Am văzut și eu acest Beauty Blender în magazine și m-a speriat prețul. Uneori am impresia că se exagerează la acest capitol. E interesant topul tău, am să încerc și eu blenderul de la Ebelin.

  8. Foarte bun am folosit mai mult buretelul de la RT si pe cel Ebelin mov dar este pe lista si acesta ;;) Pupicei! :*

  9. AM tanjit dupa beauty blender ani de zile si intr-un final mi l-am cumparat acum 2 ani cu o reducere de 20% de la sephora. Pana la beauty blender am avut (si inca mai am), pensule de toate felurile de la real techniques, sephora, ecotools, si sigma. Si dupa ani de zile in care am ajuns efectiv sa fac tendinita la bratul drept de la atata blenduit urmat de ore in sir de stat cu mana pe mouse, am ajuns la concluzia ca de fapt, cel mai bun finish il obtin cu degetele.

    Dupa ani de zile de frustrari in care m-am umplut de nervi ca nimic nu blenduieste atat de bine fondul de ten pe pori, ba mai mult, ramane in pori si se si vede, m-am decis sa mai incerc iar metoda clasica a folosirii degetelor.

    Si vreau sa iti spun ca a fost ce mai buna decizie pe care am luat-o vreodata. In sfarsit ma pot bucura de un ten perfect...bine...mai mult sau mai putin. Depinde foarte mult de fondul de ten, dar oricum, diferenta este majora. Acum am inceput sa imi iau iar fondurile de ten la testat sa vad daca in continuare imi mentin parerea despre ele sau nu.

    Bineinteles ca mai folosesc pensule pentru stick-ul de la MUFE care chiar nu se amesteca altfel.

    Concluzia este ca nici macar cu beauty blenderul nu am obtinut acel look flawless despre care vorbeste toata lumea :)

    Pe cel rosu l-am primit cadou si intr-adevar, s-a facut portocaliu

  10. Ebelin... Ebelin. I must buy this sponge :))

  11. Mi l-am cumparat si eu de curiozitate si este in stiu daca chiar isi merita pretul..mi se pare cam scump..mai testez..O sa il incerc si pe cel de la Ebelin m-ai facut curioasa..
