Does your foundation kind of roll off your face even when you use a primer? Beauty Wonkette SCREAMS : "get a Beauty Blender"

It is only very recently that Beauty Wonkette even thought about wearing foundation (fancy shmancy job requires a more "polished" look), but alas, she found that she HATED everything she tried.  Fast forward to tinted moisturizer.....meh....no joy.  BB cream.....  CC cream......  DD cream..... (ok, now that we've proved we know the alphabet, let's move on.

Bottom line: nothing seemed to work.  Either the look was unnatural or greasy or chalky or just not very good.  To add insult to injury, most products seemed to ball up or pill (I KNOW you know what I'm talking about).  Finally, a good friend who really is into makeup (which BW generally is not) recommended a Beauty Blender sponge.  Beauty Wonkette rolled her eyes.  She'd already invested a small fortune in a variety of brushes.  Was she really going to go out and spend $20 on a damn sponge?!?!?!  C'mon now.  OF COURSE!  And Beauty Wonkette is just so glad that she did!



According to the corporate website, the BeautyBlender sponge claims to be the ultimate makeup sponge applicator. Invented by Rea Ann Silva, a Hollywood makeup artist, the sponge purportedly leaves users with a “professional finish and a flawless complexion” thanks to its suede-like material. Speaking of the material, it is latex-free, non-allergenic, and free of any odors.  Definitely a plus.  BW is going to skip all the verbiage about how to use it, etc.  Read the damn directions my lovelies :D.  The only truly important issue is whether it works.

The quick answer? YES!  Yes, it works wonderfully. BW has been using it for a month now and has had results that are nothing less than FLAWLESS.  No streaking, totally smooth, no pilling or beading anymore.  BW retried every highly recommended product she rushed out and purchased, then rejected.  Every single one of them suddenly looked natural.  Even the thicker stuff looked non-cakey or chalky.  In fact, except for the fact that her skin suddenly looked flawless, it would be very hard to tell that she had anything on at all!

The ONLY drawback is the cost.  But when you consider what you would otherwise spend on a good foundation brush, it's a bargain.  And, the Beauty Blender is readily available both in stores and online.
