Maybelline Dream Blender Foundation Blending Sponge (£4.99) is a blending that released with the Maybelline 2016 spring collection.
What maybelline say:
Makeup blending sponge that delivers even foundation coverage and a smooth finish.
This makeup blending sponge is ideal for gliding over large areas and targeting hard-to-reach curves.
Must-have tool for flawless makeup application.
This latex-free and re-usable beauty blending sponge has a built-in handle for effortless and mess-free application.
I thought this was an amazing idea, a beauty blender with a handle!
I’m happen to be the person that has a million face brushes but I use my fingers to apply foundation. I just feel like I have more control over the situation with my fingers. But I have very few steady relationship with a few face brushes.
I've always like the idea of a sponge to apply makeup, but the idea of holding the sponge and then using that on your face just never sat with me.
But then i found the dream blender. Its handy handle helps you apply foundation with better support and also without getting product on your hands.
I saw MannyMUA's opinion on this in a tutorial of his, and he didn't like it but thought i would give it a chance due it being a new released product.
The sponge tip has a diamond liked domed- head which makes it easier for it to fit into your contour of the jaw and down the sides of your nose, without any trouble.
I tried this product many different ways, for example:
-applying the foundation to the sponge
-applying the foundation to my face, and then blending in it with the sponge
and also doing the same process as before but wetting the sponge.
I found the end result did blend my foundation out well, but found because its so dense it did suck up alot of product and also left my face hurting.
I found this sponge to be very hard against my face, and also left it red.
If you're debating to buy this, i would find a store where there's one out of the packet to test on your hand.
Thank you for reading.
