BeautyBlender Sponge (Pink) | Review

What it says on their website:
Now you can look like a movie star without the pricey services of a major make up artist. Introducing Beautyblender, the ultimate make up sponge applicator. Invented by top Hollywood make up artist Rea Ann Silva, Beautyblender has been created to leave you with a professional finish and a flawless complexion. Silva knows that the key to a perfect face is simple: a perfect blend. So forget your fingers or sharp-edged triangular sponges, these application methods waste make up and can leave visible streaks.

Beautyblender’s patent-pending elliptical shape makes application foolproof by allowing you to access hard-to-reach areas with stunning ease. Its suede texture is sensual to the touch and its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your make up dazzling and undetectable. Beautyblender is latex free, non-allergenic and odor free.

What I say:
I was excited to find a good deal on ebay for 2 beautyblender sponges so I bought it as I was really interested to try this sponge. I sold the other sponge to my friend because I knew she wanted to try it too.

At first use I was kinda disappointed because my liquid foundation (Revlon Colorstay) did not apply as flawless as I expected but I tried it again and also with powder foundation and I loved it! I'm glad it did not disappoint me on my 2nd try. I think on my first use I applied the foundation directly on the sponge as on my 2nd try I dabbed the sponge into the foundation poured on a plate. That made the difference.

As for the packaging, I'm just disappointed with how it was packaged because the spikes inside the container which holds the sponges left a crack on my sponge and I'm worried on how long it would last but so far after using and washing it has not made the crack bigger. Just be careful in washing. Also I noticed at first wash that the sponge lightened. It washed out a bit of the pink but it's okay than leaving a pink in your makeup. But still it performs well.
