    Wow!!!! - 25 Aug 2017
    I use to apply my foundation with my hands, then I bought the Beauty Blender and the rest is history. definitely my best "Beauty Buy" for 2017 so far. The finish is flawless, and sooo easy to use. I will never go without it again.

    Perfection - 23 Aug 2017
    All we ladies want is for our face to look natural and this blender does the job perfectly...almost to perfection! Must be damp and moist in order to blend effectively but a result time saver.

    Holy Grail - 11 Aug 2017
    This applicator has changed my life! I cannot apply makeup without it! I love the flawless look it leaves on your face after application and it is a dream for blending and contouring. There's no going back!

    Beauty Blender - 29 Jul 2017
    Really impressed with this product! In the past I have always gone with either using angle blenders or my own finger to blend in concealer and foundation but this product has completely changed the way that I apply foundation as I can't go without it. The BeautyBlender gives you a dewy "no makeup" natural look that I am very impressed with.

    These egg blender sponges are the next best thing and a must have! I have about 3 so I am never without it! So easy to use and really not so expensive

    Beauty Blender. - 22 Jul 2017
    This product is super handy and so so convenient. Tbh, this is my essential on a daily basis. It is both necessary when applying your foundation on at home as well as when leaving the house. It's petite size allows you to carry it whenever and wherever you're off too! And I simply love that. I find this more useful than most brushes as with brushes, the foundation tends to shift position. However, with this product.. it blends perfectly in the exact spot!

    Beauty blender blew my mind - 3 Jul 2017
    This magic little sponge completely changed my makeup game! I purchased my first one online and fell in love with it instantly. The soft sponge applys my foundation and concealer flawlessly, and the slim tip allows me to get into the little nooks of my face extremely well. The beauty blender always leaves me with a beautiful finish and I've never used another tool to apply foundation afterwards
  • Georgina Eulylia
    A must buy! - 5 Jun 2017
    I only have one word, Wow.
    I got this Beautyblender makeup sponge as a gift for my birthday and I can ultimately say that this is the best gift I have ever received. I have tried MANY sponge applicators in the past but none of them come close to this one.
    For the flawless application of foundation I would totally recommend this product!
  • trevoleen
    Love this - 5 Jun 2017
    Normally I would use my fingers to do my foundation. I noticed it took forever to get it looking presentable without any streaks. Since I started using this beautyblender, The amount of time i use to do my foundation has litterally been cut in half. My foundation is flawless each time. I have also noticed amount of product I use now is far less and it blends out amazingly giving me the perfect coverage.
  • Amber
    Beauty Blender - 23 May 2017
    When Beauty Blender became "all the rave" in South Africa, I bought one. This product is great for applying a natural make up look. I would use a stippling brush for a full coverage look.

    As this product does absorb some foundation, it will only provide a "sheer" foundation look. On the positive, it is a very neat, airbrushed application and blends a lot. It's easy to clean and small to store.

    I have owned many impostors in the blending world and I can honestly say that nothing even comes close!

I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to achieve a flawless makeup look.

  • Ashleigh
    The Ultimate Makeup Sponge - 19 Feb 2017
    The beauty blender is the most incredible and easy to use makeup sponge for a flawless finish. The rounded bottom allows for quick and easy application of foundation and the pointer tip is small enough to blend concealer close to the lower lash line and around the nose. It's fantastic.
  • Leomandi
    Can not say enough - 13 Feb 2017
    The beauty-blender will be the only thing i will ever use to blend out my foundation and contour, it make it look airbrush and pure perfection, i wet my sponge and it is the perfect makeup applicator. I bought backups and i can not say enough good things about this product.

  • Nadine
    Prepare to be amazed!!! - 14 Nov 2016
    I really wondered how this could have been any different from a normal sponge, but WOW. It really does work great! I dampen the blender and the dab the foundation on my face until it is blended out everywhere and it really looks soooo natural and it reaches in every nook and cranny and it makes my foundation last for so much longer. This invention is amazing!
  • Monica
    Magic maker - 9 Nov 2016
    This sponge is magic, seriously. It helps you to apply your foundation flawlessly and no dupe really compares to the OG beautyblender. A little pricey, but well worth the money.
  • Bethan
    WOW! - 8 Nov 2016
    This thing is amazing! It works on nearly all the foundations I've used. I do find it to work best with water based foundations though. However, it is still brilliant with other as well. I also find it great for baking under my eyes when I'm going for an intense contoured look.
  • Margareet
    Flawless foundation that looks like skin - 7 Nov 2016

    Flawless - 18 Oct 2016
    My sister got one for me when she went on holiday, i used to always used my flat top foundation brush and normally left my makeup streaky. OMW this little tear drop sponge when used damp is amazing, it left my foundation flawless and it looked like my actual skin. i wish they weren't so expensive though, but this is so amazing i wont mind spending R350 to get it, well worth it in my opinion
  • saleha
    It Works! - 12 Oct 2016
    I have had my beauty blender for a few years now, and I have to say it is my go to tool for applying foundation. It works, there is no streaking and it gives a smooth and even application. It is pricey however you do get value for the money spent and I found I still do not need to replace it, it has held its colour and shape after mutiple uses and washes.
  • Allegra Chloe
    Best of its kind. - 2 Oct 2016
    The beauty blender is worldwide recognised as the best. I found it easy to use to blend both my concealer and foundation. The only problem for me is the prize.
  • Léan
    Awesome, but didn't WOW me. - 20 Sep 2016
    I recently purchased an Original Beauty Blender from a reputable beauty store.

    After the very first time I used it, the pink color started washing out. Like a LOT! That was a huge disappointment and also a bit of a worry - how much dye is actually in there that simply wash out under running water?

    Using it was fine. It wasn't mind-blowing. It works better at blending my liquid foundation than with my concealer stick. And I can definitely see my foundation is streak-free and very smooth after application.

  • Saadiqah
    Works great - 12 Sep 2016
    This foundation applicator works wonderfully. It spreads your foundation out evenly over all your bumps and wrinkles and the tip allows you to get to places that are often hard to smoothen out. The point tip also allow's you to perfectly clean up your eye shadow making it look professional this is a need.
  • Paige
    Best product I have ever used - 12 Sep 2016
    If I could, I would kiss the feet of the person who invented the Beauty Blender, Rea Ann Silva. I have tried countless numbers of beauty sponges including the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge and drugstore brands such as the Clicks homebrand sponge, but NOTHING compares.
    The shape of the original BB is perfect for reaching every surface of the face and foundation applies seamlessly and streak-free. I always use my sponge damp as I feel that it gives a more flawless finish without looking cakey. The pointed tip is perfect for blending out concealer under the eyes and around the nose. I also use it for cream contouring which blends out like a dream with the BB.
    The only reservation that I have about the BB is the cost - I feel like it could be much lower considering that it is a beauty sponge, but despite this, I will continue to purchase new BBs until I find something better (which I can't see happening in the near future)!
  • Rene
    Whats not to love ... - 28 Aug 2016
    about this sponge. I love the teardrop shape, the pointed tip is perfect for the inner eye corner. My foundation is flawless. I reach for my blender more often than my RT and Morphe brushes. To avoid under eye creasing I use it to set my concealer with powder. A perfect all rounder makes this a must have.
  • ASHEEQAH
    AMAZING APPLICATION - 13 Aug 2016
    Spritz some MAC Fix+ onto this baby and be amazed with your foundation application
  • Lauren

  • Quaarniah
    Love this product - 1 Aug 2016
    So in love with this beauty blender, blends my foundations seamlessly , no unsightly streaks at all .
  • Tania
    a worthwhile investment. - 29 Nov 2014
    This really is better than any other blender/make up sponge. The quality and feel of it is unreal. If you can afford it and you use make-up sponges, this is a worthwhile investment.
  • Nicolette
    Worth the hype - 17 Sep 2014
    I couldn’t believe that a sponge could outperform my Sigma or Real Techniques brushes....but it did. It makes foundation application a breeze, but I especially love it for blending out my concealer. Best investment yet :)
  • Chantal
    Just lovely - 5 Aug 2014
    This is unlike any other sponge i have ever used before, makes foundation and concealer application flawless and so natural looking. Expensive? yes. Worth it? hell yes!!
  • Aruna
    Airbrushed! - 5 Aug 2014
    I recently purchased the Original Beauty Blender and I am extremely amazed at how flawless the application of my foundation was. Zero streaking like with that of a foundation brush. My makeup looked airbrushed on almost. It does soak up product as any sponge would, so the best is to use a foundation that isn't too liquidy. Best viscosity of foundation to use with the Beauty Blender would be comparable to a BB cream. Great product! Ditching the brush!
  • Candice
    BEST MAKEUP APPLICATOR EVER - 29 Jul 2014
    Iv always wanted to try this Beauty Blender craze and thought ...its just a sponge...so i decided to splurge out a bit.It works like a dream.All my other makeup brushes are not collecting dust .Its GREAT to use 1 product in all areas of your face especially concealor!its great for the hard to reach spots.Im in love.I have read somewhere that it lasts only 3 months though :( i hope it lasts longer.
  • Lisa
    Beautyblender - 21 Jul 2014
    I use my Beautyblender when I contour my foundation. It blends evenly leaving a flawless finish - I don't even bother with make up brushes anymore, this is so much easier to use without the hassle of bristles being left behind on your face.
  • Ferdous
    Beauty Blender - 14 Jul 2014
    Was really going around and around in my head about whether to spend this much money on a sponge. The best money I've ever spent hands down, I will make this investment as often as I need to. Flawless finish that can't be achieved with any brush I've seen.
  • Kelly
    Great Applicator! - 3 Jul 2014
    The beautyblender beats any other sponge or foundation brush hands down! I love the finish it gives my skin - flawless and likes its been airbrushed. The only thing that I don't like is that you have to wash it every day, after you apply your foundation, which is normally in the morning, which is normally a rush!
  • kylie
    Worth the money! - 20 Jun 2014
    Have have bought 2 of these already and will carry on purchasing them. Your make up goes on so flawlessly and its so quick and easy. Nothing out there that matches this! I definitely recommend this!
  • Zumra
    Excellent Product - 9 Oct 2013
    I heard so much about this product from online reviews that I just had to get my hands on it and I am so glad I did. I no longer use any foundation brush I simply use the beauty blender for my foundation, concealer and highlighter application. It works like a bomb. Effortlessly gives an amazing flawless finish. Definitely recommend everyone to have one for their beauty box.
  • Cecile
    Never use anything else again - 20 Sep 2013
    I did a lot of research on the Beauty Blender before taking the plunge to buy it and all the rave reviews are true. I've used silicone sponges, sea sponges and my fingers - but this applicator beats all those options. No more streaks and even coverage (whether you use a little foundation or a lot). I thought the fact that you had to dampen it every day would be a pain, but it isn't at all and works a charm.
  • Faaizah
    Beauty Blender - 20 Aug 2013
    Love the beauty blender! Applies foundation beautifully and blends concealer so well. Will always be re purchasing!
  • Sunny
    Beauty Blender - 15 Aug 2013
    Heard so much about this before I bought it, and watched tutorial videos of how to use it and clean it etc (which is important to do when purchasing this product).
    I eventually bought it and must say was slightly disappointed especially as I followed all the instructions e.g. to use damp. I felt it removed the foundation after I used it more then blend it in as supposed to. I prefer using a makeup brush, then lightly stipple the beauty blender afterwards. The pink colour also started washing out the first time I washed it.
    I honestly don't think it's any different than any normal make-up sponge, but experts might disagree.
  • Anye
    Great product - 8 Aug 2013
    This is simply the best and easiest way to apply foundation. I mainly use it to apply my concealer, makes it quick and easy. Some foundations tend to become streaky when applying with a brush, but not when you use a beautyblender. Is worth all the hype!
  • Lynne
    Soft and non streaky - 24 Jul 2013
    Wonderful sponge, a pity about it giving off in my make up bag. Can't be washed cause the make up does not come off it

    Awesome Product! - 18 Apr 2013
    I had read so many great things about the BeautyBlender I couldn't wait to finally get my hands on my own. It certainly lived up to all the amazing reviews! Flawless, easy, fast application for foundation and concealer. A must have!
  • Cindy
    Amazed - 14 Feb 2013
    I have always struggled to get a flawless face and landed up with streaks, with the Beautyblender - no more!!! It's so easy to use and feels great on the skin!
  • Anastasiia
    Amazing sponge - 28 Nov 2012
    I still couldn't get such for myself, but I used it on make-up courses and I fell in love with it. It has good and comfortable form for usage. Making it little wet helps you to put a thin and uniform layer of toner or cream on your skin. Two sides with different shapes allows you to work good with bigger areas like cheeks and forehead and smaller - area near eyes and nose.
