It’s Pinkalicious – Beauty Blender Sponge

I love my pink egg. I really, really love it. I use the Beauty Blender sponge 9 days out of 10, that’s how much I love it.  I believe that good tools really are a help in perfecting the way you look each day and the pink Beauty Blender sponge rocks my world.

I remember when I first heard about it from Kellie, a friend on a beauty board. She posted a picture of it and the price ($20) and we all sort of looked askew. $20 for a sponge?? Why would we spend that kind of money on something we can buy in the drugstore for a whole lot less? Seemed pretty silly to me. I bought one and put it in a cupboard and forgot about it. But my luck changed the instant I received it from another friend on the beauty board. From that point on I’ve continued to buy and cherish this sponge.

There are now a whole world of imitators out there. Stores like Sephora and Ulta copied this, companies like Sonia Kashuk and Trish McEvoy came out with their own versions. But for me the pink egg is the one to own. The others truly don’t compare. I’ve written reviews on http://www.emakemeup.com of the two versions that Target carries for the Sonia Kashuk line, they weren’t glowing like this is. I’ve also previously reviewed this on emakmeup.com in January, 2007 and I love it more now than I did then.

How to use it? One word: BOUNCE!!  I lightly dampen my beauty blender (I use Evian but plain water or a liquid like MAC Fix + can also be used). I dot my liquid foundation on my face and then I take my sponge and just bounce it around on my face. That’s all there is to it. It magically blends without any lines or seams.  With a cream foundation, I put the sponge into the foundation to pick it up and then bounce it on my face. With a spray-on foundation I spray it onto the back of my hand, pick up the color with the sponge and then BOUNCE. Easy as can be for a seamless look. It works great for cream blushes and for concealer. The pointy end gets in smaller areas like around your nose and eyes.

You can buy this in a variety of packaging. You can buy a single for $19.95, a single with a full size cleanser for $34.95, a double for $25.95 or a double with a full size cleanser for $39.95. Sometimes you can find these one sale for 20% off too. I purchased this without the cleanser. Each sponge has lasted me a year before I’ve decided that it either looks too grungy or it’s not working as well as it used to for me. I don’t use the cleanser they sell but it is fabulous. It really gets the sponge clean but I’m not a fan of the lavender fragrance in it.  The Beauty Blender company even has a recycling program that‘s listed on their website (http://www.beautyblender.net).

If you are going to make one new purchase to improve your tool collection, make it the Beauty Blender sponge. You won’t regret it. — Marcia
