Beauty Blender Starter Kit
So I got a beauty blender. I've been trying to work up to getting a beauty blender for ages. I'm pretty sure it's been at least a year but Marlena of Makeup Geek uses them all the time and she raves about it, plus the coverage always looks amazing. It's sooooo expensive for a sponge but I didn't want to get a substitute because everyone I've ever seen reviewing 'dupes' says they're not as good. Plus I was always worried about hygiene and keeping them clean. Finally though I saw that it had been in the Birchbox the month before I switched from Glossybox to Birchbox and I'd been having problems with brush marks on my face so I bit the bullet and bought it and I am so glad I did.
So I bought the Beauty Blender Starter Kit with the cleanser and sponge for £26 from http://tinyurl.com/c4xkab6. Obviously I love the sponge, it's the beauty blender you know? It gives amazing coverage, a great skin like texture and it is great for blending. The only thing I wasn't expecting is that it doesn't give the sheer coverage everyone suggested it did, or at least it doesn't for me. It looks like I have makeup on when I look in a mirror which with a huge amount of effort I could get rid of with my old application method (the real techniques expert face brush). Anyway it's a great sponge and it's my new go-to foundation application method.
However the really amazing part of this set is the sponge cleanser. OMG!
