Eureka Moment! The Original BeautyBlender is HERE!

8 years ago was the first time I touched the Original Beauty Blender when I was doing a shoot for a make up school I attended.  My foundation application has changed (for both myself and clients).  Through the years, I have this in my KIT and even repurchased this several times even with all the new brands coming in.

The Original will always be the original and mark my words for it!  It feels different and I can tell the difference even when blindfolded!

8 years after, imagine the happiness when The Original Beauty Blender is finally here in Manila?  Guys, not from resellers but officially distributed?  I was able to get 2 and they actually have other shades available!  (if you don't believe me, check out BeautyMNL!)

So this is the size difference of Wet and Dry
Left: Dry
Right: Wet (it can even get bigger if you soak it longer in water)

What I love about the BeautyBlender is how I can use this for moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer even cream blushes!  I know they have a separate BeautyBlusher for that but this is really multi-tasking!  

I love how soft it feels and how perfect the size and shape is.  I like to use the tip to apply foundation/concealer on edges like undereye area, sides of the nose.

The base of the sponge is perfect for wider areas like forehead and cheeks.  Again, as much as you are tempted to do the rubbing motion, you will only see the total effect of a BeautyBlender if you do the BOUNCING motion.  Bouncing the sponge onto your face is the best way to achieve seamless makeup.  

You can actually use this dry if you wanted maximum coverage, but everybody should try this damp for a change!  Some like to soak the sponge in a bowl of water but I like just to run the sponge quickly under running water and I get fuller makeup coverage that way!

As much as we would love to keep this sponge forever, I realized that 3-4 months of everyday usage, it is best to replace the sponge.  If you don't use it on a daily basis and you care for it, 6 months is the maximum life span of your BeautyBlender.
