Birchbox Breakdown

Purple is the new pink. This limited edition beautyblender® has a new look, but everything that made us fall for this little sponge remains the same. The soft, reusable tool is ideal for applying and blending powder and cream complexion products without streaks or harsh lines. The unique open-cell structure lets makeup sit on top of the sponge rather than absorbing into it, which means we can keep our favorite products where they belong: on our skin instead of deep inside a sponge.

How to Use

Thoroughly wet the beautyblender® and wring it out to remove excess water. Apply a few dots of product to your face, then use the sponge to blend it into your skin in quick tapping motions. The pointed end is perfect for getting into the tricky spots around your nose, eyes, and mouth.

Flawless application.. my holy grail

I debated whether I should splurge and spend $20 on a tiny sponge but let me tell ya, I'm glad I did. I've never been a fan of using a brush to apply foundation because it takes forever, leaves brush strokes / looks cakey, and seems to waste a lot of the product. This sponge makes it SO easy to apply foundation and somehow manages to give you a flawless finish yet look like you have no makeup on. It's amazing, you can apply 100 layers of foundation if you want and it still won't look cakey, annnnd it takes me barely a minute to apply to my entire face. It is really pricey, especially considering they recommend buying a new one every 3 months and they say you "must" wash it with their specific cleanser that costs another $18... I'm definitely not going to do that.
My only complaint is that it leaked purple everywhere when I washed it the first time and was hard to remove the stains from my sink. Not sure if the pink one has the same issue or if they warn you about this, but regardless, it was not fun. But whatever!! The sponge still gets 5 stars cause it's bomb.

My Favorite Beautyblender

It's honestly just like the others but purple is my favorite color so I'm excited to finally have one in my favorite color! Just like the others it blends beautifully and replaces so many brushes for me!

Lives Up to the Hype

This is the best makeup sponge I've ever tried. It applies makeup evenly and doesn't soak up foundation like other sponges. So glad I finally bought one!

Nothing beats it

Nothing beats the original. It's no secret that the beauty blender is what gives you the most flawless finish. I love the purple, and it feels so soft on the skin.

The best

Oh how I love thee, beautyblender. This is the best applicator product for multiple uses: concealer, foundation, powder. I use it dry to apply my makeup as I don't care for the feel of a damp sponge and it works perfectly. If you wear an airbrush-type makeup, those formulas absorb into the blender too quickly despite what the description says about it sitting on top. For those, I apply with a brush or fingers and use the beautyblender to blend.
