Haha I had to vote D Coco... but you know what? If those make-up artists tell you that you're doing a good job, don't change a thing! I think this egg of Columbus is a great marketing job... make people believe they need it is the trick (I'm a marketeer though I work in finance now). Don't let them have you Coco, outsmart the marketeers :D
I LOVEEEEE the beauty blender!! I dont want to sound like a maniac, but honestly it was the BEST investment I've ever put my money towards. I have all colors, I got greedy because they last like 5 months or so. I wash it after each use though, but its BETTER than brushes or your fingers. When you use it, it looks like your face has been airbrushed and your makeup stays on.
But I dont trust Amazon, so I would not purchase it from them.
Mine was $20, at least thats how much they were when I bought them. I dont know if they upped the price. I got it from Sephora, thats the original seller.
I've tried a drugstore brand and BELIEVE ME, its absolutely not the same. Drugstore is more rubbery and heavier. While the BeautyBlender is softer and lighter.
I have one and I love it! Admittedly though, I have not tried other sponges but I like this better than any foundation brush I've tried. I can't remember how much I paid for mine but I bought it at Sephora. If you already have sponges though and are satisfied with them, then you probably don't really need to buy this. I just bought it to try because I wanted something different from the brushes I had.
I haven't tried it. To be honest, I don't spend that that much on tools (I'd rather buy an expensive palette)-so, I dunno if a 20 brush or sponge is better than a 6 dollar one. However, I'd heard SO many youtubers say the beauty blender really is worth it because it doesn't absorb so much product and your foundation looks more natural. If you have the money to splurge on it, do it, :) I definitely want to try it! :)
I have no option on the poll for me... I haven't tried it and don't want to - it's a sponge - that collects so much filth in it - some of which you can never wash off - and who wants that on their face? Really?
+ it soaks up most of the foundation you put on - so a waste of more money in the long run
I definitely want to buy the beauty blender. I have a heard good reviews about it. I like how it has two sides, I can use it to blend two separate makeup products, unlike a brush. I'd try the Artis makeup brush set any day over the beauty blender, though, if it weren't that expensive lol.
