It’s a new addition for the brand, and you could be fooled into thinking that it could just pass off as another Beauty Blender dupe. Yes, it’s a sponge applicator, but it has three different surfaces for you to work with…
The rounded surface is ideal to use to buff in foundation, and give that flawless photo ready effect to your make up. You can also use a stippling/bouncing motion with this side, to build up coverage.
I like to use this sponge with foundations which are quite thick or heavy duty, like L’Oreal Infaliable or Max Factor Liquid Illusion. It helps to control the amount I’m applying, and blends in beautifully.
It’s not ideal to use with a water based foundation like MaC Face and Body, unless you dampen the sponge first. Any water based foundation is going to be soaked up by the dry sponge, and you’ll probably find yourself going back over it a few times to notice any difference.
Overall the sponge is a great tool to have handy, it comes in a lot cheaper than the Beauty Blender, and other dupes I’ve seen around, or even just regular make up sponges. I also like the fact that it’s orange, it just means that any staining from foundation doesn’t show up so much.
You can find this sponge in Boots, on-line and in store for £5.99.
Have you used this, or any other RT tools…if so which ones are your favourites? I’m thinking about doing a bit of a giveaway soon so I’d love to know!!
