I don’t even want to talk about how expensive beauty blenders are, so let’s all just get over the idea of spending four digits on it. Let’s get over it.. NOW.
I like the idea of using a beauty blenders, especially since I’m quite the BB cream user. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t call it an essential, because it’s easy to find a foundation brush that can do the job if you won’t want to use your fingers. Beauty blenders are softer than regular makeup sponges, and they don’t absorb make-up, all while effectively blending and delivering cream products for a near-seemless effect.
I like how the TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL Marshmallow Puff is more waisted, rather than just being teardrop-shaped, as it’s ideal for handling. The pointy tip also allows for it to get to those hard-to-reach areas, such as those around the eyes and the nose.
The sponge is meant to be wet before use, and I’ve read on multiple platforms that it’s pretty much useless if manipulated otherwise. It’s my first time using a sponge of this sort, but I really think it would make my BB cream applications a whole lot easier.
I know that this isn’t the original trademark beautyblender, and it’s not that I’m convincing myself, or anybody else otherwise. I want to enjoy all the goodness that advancements, in the beauty community, and everwhere else, without havibg to sacrifice practicality. Sometimes it’s about working with what we’ve got and producing beautiful results. That, my friends, is practicality. Vain practicality.:)
PS. Now this is gonna seem a bit off, considering my normally wholesome nature, but I told Norman that this is a sex toy. He believed it for a full 29 minutes.
