One of the many new beauty fads is this strange thing called a silicone beauty blender.
From the minute I saw this little sparkly teardrop-shaped beauty blender I know I had to have it in my life. I mean if I had a normal boring beauty blender while I had the chance to have a sparkly silicone one that would you think of me? I mean this is A Sparkle Of Grace after all!
This blender is made of medical-grade hypoallergenic silicone which makes it way more hygienic and does not store dirt, oils or other breakout causing bacteria. Since it isn’t porous it takes a lot less makeup to achieve a flawless finish.
How’s the quality?
The quality is really nice, it feels durable and well made. It has a weird jelly like the feel and so far is holding up well. The only thing I have to notice it that the Base Beauty logo is starting to wear away after just a week of use.
How does it work?
You apply a small amount foundation( of whatever product you’re using) and spread it on your face in circular motions. Then you use a dabbing motion to get that flawless finish. Since this has such a flexible design is really easy to get around the nose and under the eyes.
Does it really save product?
I would say I have been using forty percent less foundation than I would use with my Real Techniques sponge. While this does save product it does not save time, it takes me about twice as long to get a smooth non-smeary finish with than with my usual sponge.
Another plus it that being silicone makes that super easy to clean, just a drop of soap and some warm water and it’s as good as new.
I think the idea behind this product is quite an ingenious one.
I Can definitely see it saving me money over time especially with higher end foundation and that sort of thing.
Overall I think this would be a fun whimsical and useful addition to any makeup fanatics collection. As it does take longer to get the finish I like I don’t think I will be using it on a daily basis, but I will definitely be using it with my more expensive foundations.
