Its always when I least expected or had no view of buying anything as I wander round the shop that I find a great beauty buy. This time it was in H&M of all places and I just had to purchase it, at the cheap and cheerful price of £1.99 I thought it was worth a shot to try out this Beauty Blender dupe!
The Beauty Blender (link here) is a specially designed sponge to apply and blend make-up products such as foundation, concealer and blusher. It has an egg like shape with no edges so that it leaves a seamless finish with no visible lines and streaks which you may get with usual triangular shaped sponges. The Beauty Blender is made to be used damp, stippling with the base to apply and blend product and using the narrow end to get to hard to reach areas such as around the nose, mouth and under the eyes. You can also use the pointed end to cover blemishes.
|H&M Blender £1.99|
As you can see the H&M blender is a fraction of the price of a Beauty Blender at £16.00 for one sponge compared to H&M's £1.99 version. As the Beauty Blenders egg like shape is patented the shape isn't exactly the same but it has the same rounded base and pointed front so you can still stipple on products and use the narrow end to get to hard to reach places. When I tried this damp it worked really well to apply foundation onto the skin, creating a heavier coverage and even base. The narrower end was great to apply concealer by stippling and rolling to blend.
