Advent Calendar 2015: Window 16

Yumi's picks: Beautyblender

I have mentioned this as my tool of choice once or twice in this calendar, but it deserves its own window. Beautyblender is a dupe which has gained reputation as the leading dupe brand in the makeup industry. There are a several colors to choose from, but the bright pink sponge is the most recognized one.

How to use
Place the beautyblender in warm water and let it absorb as much water as possible. This way the foundation doesn't get in the sponge and stays on the surface. Ring out the sponge until it is damp. Finally, you can start dabbing the foundation on with the sponge. You can also use this for blending only, if you prefer applying foundation contour and highlights with other tools.

It is almost fluffy-like and significantly softer than any other dupe. It blends makeup with care. It is also suitable for dry skin, as it is softer on skin than regular sponges and it doesn't tear or irritate skin. It doesn't absorb quite as much makeup as other sponges might, and your makeup products will last longer before running out. Even though the color of the sponge is very vivid, it doesn't transfer on skin or alter the color of applied makeup. The shape of the sponge enables it to get to the smaller nooks and larger areas of the face.

The sponge is expensive, no running away from it. Because of its light texture, it is important to clean after every use. This is to make it last as long as possible, and to avoid spending another large sum of money for the next sponge too soon.

If you have anything further to ask about this product, don't hesitate to leave a comment!
