I love this. I have oily skin and find it difficult to buff makeup on without leaving brush strokes, but this is never an issue with beauty blender, makeup application is flawless. My only gripe is that it absorbs so much product I usually have to use an extra pump of foundation. It’s a little pricy too for something that won’t last as long as a brush.

I used to use this sponge all the time, like seriously. I recently discovered the Sunday Ivy Blender which is almost half the price of this blender and so so much better. It has saved so much of my makeup they say 70% of your makeup because the sponge doesn't absorb anything and it really doesn't. Sorry Bye bye beauty blender hello SUNDAY IVY

If cared for correctly your beauty blender will serve you for a very long time to come. You can use this for with liquid foundations, cream foundations, powders and baking.
It is very easy to clean as it is just so squishy and malleable. It is perhaps the texture of the beauty blender which just makes the blending process so much more seamless and flawless.
It just isn't very difficult to achieve a natural finish if you have this tool in your makeup armoury.
It is so easy to get a dewy, barely there look as the beauty blender makes it so easy to bind product together with the skin with such minimal effort.
The shape of the beauty blender makes it easy to get into those hard to reach contours and crevices of the face.
This product is an investment which pays for itself.

✨First of all - I would definitely recommend buying this when it is on offer; I got mine for £11 vs £16 from Space NK when they had a sale on. I think it’s definitely too expensive for £16, especially when you’re supposed to bin them after 3 months. I use this to blend my Concealer and liquid Blusher, which it does flawlessly. It really gives a beautiful airbrush finish which you just can’t achieve with a brush. I sometimes use it to blend Foundation, but only after I’ve buffed it with a Stippling Brush first to ensure evething is blended fully. The only reason I’ve not given it 5 stars is simply due to the price tag.

I absolutely love this beauty blender as it blends like a dream. I’m not very good at cream contours so I love to use this as it blends the imperfections away and leaves my contour looking. Flawless. I also use it for primer

Does what it says on the tin..blends blends blends
I have been using the beautyblender for a couple of years now and its the only tool I have found that leaves my concealer under my eyes flawless. I was very stubborn for the first year and would not wet it before applying my concealer as I believed that it would dilute the concealer but I was very wrong.
I use a Sigma f80 to apply my foundation but I also use the beautyblender as it reaches all the places a brush can't and it blends out any lines. When you wet the blender it becomes really soft unlike some firm makeup sponges so you can manipulate it more. I use it to apply my concealer, blend my foundation, and soak up excess face powder when I look a bit antiqued.
I know the beauty blender is more expensive than the Real Techniques blender however after after using both for some time I feel that this performs better and each time I have purchased it I have got it on special offer for £11...if you don't mind what colour you have. If you look after this product it will last, I give mine a clean once a week with the beautyblender soap which I got free with a sponge last year. Great investment to achieve a flawless base.

I love the concept but the material needs improving for dry sensitive skin. My skin was itchy and irritated. By the evening, I got an allergic reaction. These aren't piggy bank friendly either so this is a 'NO NO for sensitive acne prone skin.

Best beauty sponge by far! I've tried several but nothing beats this one. I use it damp and it doesn't soak up that much product. It blends my makeup in flawlessly and doesn't feel harsh on the skin. I use dabbing motions and it gives my face an airbrush look. It is expensive but worth it!

I have tried many cheaper versions of the beauty blender, and they do not stand up to the beauty blender. The beauty blender is soft and feels amazing on the skin! Make sure you get it wet first before you use it! But of course squeeze out the excess. My only downside is I have to instantly clean my blender right after I use it so I can get the product all out.

don't get me wrong, it works perfectly and i love it.It blends perfectly ofcourse, lovely material,gorgeous application of any liquid or powder( dabbing lightly, remember not to drag/rub into your skin too hard as this doesn't help applying the product properly) BUT the price isn't what it should be! Many other brands have blender sponges exactly the same at a much much cheaper price! £5/6 instead of £16 for a different name such as RealTechniques? YESPLZ! they work just as good, ignore rumours of the sponge soaking up the product more in dupes, they're JUST AS GOOD, i promise!

Honestly, whoever decided to make beauty blenders is an absolute god send, I always used my BH cosmetics brush so apply my foundation but now, I use my beauty blender and it provides such good coverage and I am not going back to brushes.

this beauty blender is better than all the fakes it doesn't absorb much product so this means you are left with more, it looks pretty to use and also gives you a flawless face if using the right foundation, kindest regards amira

I love the original beauty blender sponge and have come to the conclusion that it is better than any other , I have tried endless beauty sponges and none of them have been as good as the original , although as a dupe I would recommend the real techniques blending sponge , I find that the beauty blender makes my foundation and concealer have perfect coverage and end up with a flawless finish , I love the softness of the beauty blender and like how I do not have to press hard with it to blend out everything which is better for my skin ! Overall I love the beauty blender !

The Beauty Blender or as others like to call it The 'Beauty SPONGE' is a very popular beauty tool for applying base products. Most of us have all seen the Beauty Blender or heard of it in the media or even friends and it is quickly becoming the new standard tool for applying products. From it being foundation, concealer, any cream base products and even loose translucent powder, the beauty blender never fails to give a flawless, natural look. It's very controllable and the shape is just PERFECT for using, this tool enables you to build up coverage to the desired look/outcome.
