The Beauty Blender.

I have been anti the Beauty Blender since the fad began, because that's all I thought it was. A fad! Also, I was more than happy with how I already applied my foundation. And you know what they say, if it ain't broke...

However, I began to find that my concealer would sit funny around my nose and under my eyes. It didn't matter how much I would blend, it wouldn't look any better. So, I headed down to Boots to see what I could find. I certainly wasn't going to spend the money on a Beauty Blender, but the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is almost exactly the same product, but for a fraction of the price, so I thought I'd give it a go.

And it has definitely solved the problem for me. If I pat the slightly damp sponge onto the areas of foundation which look cakey and uneven then it really does help to create a smoother base.

Even though I really like it, it's definitely not a necessity in my makeup collection, and I certainly don't use it every day.

Although it does help create a smoother base, and I think makes foundation and concealer last longer, I still don't get the massive hype for it. If you use it to apply foundation, it takes such a long time otherwise it looks patchy. I just don't have the patience to spend 10 minutes blending my foundation.

I wouldn't recommend the Beauty Blender if you often do your makeup in a hurry, however if you love makeup and don't mind the faff, it does make a difference to the finish of your base.
