Every time I would try to blend my make up or anything on my face, it would go on uneven. I am by far not your average joe when it comes to make up. I only use eye liner and a little foundation to cover my redness. I was on the search for something that I could easily use to blend my make up. Previously, I have heard of the beauty blender. I never thought to actually try one. I went up and down the aisle in all the stores looking at the beauty sponges, but I never bought one. My boss at work is a make up guru. She is obsessed with all of it and one day she asked, "Have you tried using a beauty blender?"

I started doing research on this egg-shaped sponge. I was really curious why this sponge has a TON of great reviews. I went on about a total of ten websites and I also went on YouTube to watch videos on how to properly use this thing. Well, after using a sponge to blend your make up, you have to clean it eventually right? Then, I continued to search for videos on how to clean this sponge the best way. I read through the comments section just out my curiosity. This sponge is like crack for make up artists and they are obsessed with it. I went on the actually website for it and I thought this sponge is expensive, but why? It is latex free which is awesome for people who are allergic to latex. The sponge material absorbs water which helps expands the sponge. You always want to soak your make up sponges with water and gently squeeze the water out, because it helps blending way easier then it seems.

I decided to say, "Whatever, I'll buy this thing just to see for myself if it helps blend the make up on evenly." I went to a local make up store and found the item. I noticed it is super small for the price of this thing. All the reviews say, once you soak it up with water, it does expand. I went home with it and used the sponge to apply my CC cream. I bounced the sponge lightly over my skin as I applied. I notice as you do this, you want to have your foundation on the back of your opposite hand. Don't apply it directly to your face then sponge over it or it won't look natural. You also would be wasting a lot more make up then you actually need. Use a palate like the back of your hand and squeeze a dime sized amount of foundation. Dab the beauty blender in the foundation and then apply to your face.

Once I applied it all on, it looked natural and my fingers stayed clean. I was AMAZED by this item. I thought to myself, Why didn't I purchase this sooner? What is wrong with me? I currently still use this sponge to apply my foundation every morning and I haven't regretted it. I will admit, I do not clean it after every use, but after a few days of use.

I have tried ALL of the methods I could find on the internet on how to clean this sponge. The best way that I have found is with bar soap and warm water. With the water running, take a bar of soap in one hand and with the other hand, hold the sponge. Lightly scrub the sponge on the bar of soap. You will want to pause periodically to squeeze the soap and make up out of the sponge. Repeat this process until it is clean enough to the way you want it to be. You should see the make up starting to come out of the sponge as you rinse it out. At the end of it, squeeze all the water out by putting the sponge in a towel and then set it some where air dry. It should be ready to use for the next day. I give this product 4 out of 5 star rating.

Have you ever used a beauty blender?
