Surprisingly I'm extremely new to the original beauty blender, for years I've seen so much hype and love surrounding it but in all honestly I was always put off because of the price. I would say to myself 'surely the cheaper alternatives are going to do the exact same thing' and I've used those cheaper beauty sponges for years without many grumbles, I mean I've stumbled across a couple that are rock solid and feel like their punching me in the face when I use them but in general I've had good experiences with cheaper sponges and didn't think I really needed the original one, that was until I used the original beauty blender and wow....that was it, I was in love!
Sorry to my other sponges but I've definitely been converted over to the original beauty blender, the overall look of my base makeup after using the sponge is so much smoother and natural looking than when I use my other sponges and it's so quick at blending everything in too. No matter what I use whether it's foundation, concealer, primer, powder, matte finish, dewy finish, you name it this sponge leaves that stunning finish every time! If you haven't tried a beauty blender yet then I think you need to, I mean after all it hasn't earned it's amazing reputation for nothing and I can definitely see why its so well loved now!
