Beautyblender

(ROUGH TRANSLATION FROM SPANISH)

Beauty Blender
Well this is the famous pink espoja say they use the famous makeup.

Was released months ago as an entirely new product which was not only valid for the foundation, but also said was used to color correction, illuminating …

It consists of a pink egg made of a soft material (like sponges, always, but different, does not latex). Created by Rea Ann Silva and Veronica Lorenz, two of the most famous make up artists in Hollywood.

Used putting it in water and pressed it well, (increases in volume) so that is moist and the absorption of the product is low. Applies to pat all over face, down slightly, carefully, without dragging in the case of the foundation. I have to say to his credit, he is well diffused, without the annoying lines that often leave the traditional brush or sponge.
I find it very comfortable and the finish that makes it good.
I also used to apply the concealer. Both granite and dark circles, use the pick and press lightly and finish I like.
To apply shadows, like I do not see. And the blush, I have not tried it, so I can not give my opinion.

Say the duration is usually three months, but I have it for nine, but of course, nor do I put on makeup every day or whenever I use makeup.
Although I gave it to me, the price is 20 euros. Expensive, yes, to be a sponge, but its use is very comfortable and the result is good.
To wash, ideally cleansing gel may buy (another 20 euros) if you going to use a lot. I did not buy it but it’s really good. It smells of lavender and wherever touches the sponge is clean instantly, which does not happen with baby soft gel is what I wash it. As you can see in the picture, the base of the egg is darker and not because it is dirty but because it is stained and makeup. I imagine that the gel will not pass this mark.

It is definitely a good tool to facilitate the application of makeup. I buy it or not, depends on the economy of each, but if you really want and not want to release the eurillos, we can always take advantage birthday or kings that tickled us.

A cute cosmetic tool and its clever cleanser

December 6, 2010

Over the last few years, I couldn’t help noticing how many celebrities and their makeup artists seemed to be obsessed with a small, soft, egg-like object called the beautyblender. If you’re not already familiar with it, this elliptical sponge has replaced fingers and brushes as the way many of the most flawless faces chose to apply foundation.

I’ve become increasingly intrigued by the beautyblender, but one thing has always kept me from actually trying it: how do you clean this thing without altering its effectiveness?

As if someone was reading my mind, the beautyblender duo pack appeared on my desk. Alongside the little pink implement was something I didn’t know existed: the blendercleanser. No, it’s not a makeup remover for your face—it’s for the beautyblender itself.

You simply wet the beautyblender and add a little of the blendercleanser, gently scrubbing it to the point of a low-suds lather. The soy-based formula keeps the beautyblender hygienic, removing lingering makeup, as well the oil and dirt that has transferred from your face.

I love how this lavender-scented wash extends the life of the beautyblender, but eventually it’s wise to replace it. And when that time comes, the brand even offers a special eco-friendly recycling program called blendersender.

Needless to say, I’m no longer hesitant to use this adorable, intelligent tool. And the pairing makes a perfect gift!

Beauty Queen Gift Guide

December 3, 2010

It’s easy to classify someone as a beauty queen (or junkie) –we’re everywhere! However it’s not always easy to find the perfect gift for us, especially since we’re so picky. Here are some recommendations to help you get a little more creative this holiday season.

2. BeautyBlender Holiday Set ($23.95) – This set contains a BeautyBlender sponge and BlenderCleanser bundled a red pouch, ready for the holidays. I was originally turned onto the BeautyBlender sponge by celebrity makeup artist, Jackie Gomez. She raved about it in a class I attended –how great the shape of the sponge was for applying makeup to the contours of your face, how it could be used wet or dry, and that it is very durable and long lasting. This set also includes BlenderCleanser, a lightly lavender-scented cleanser that’s free of dyes and skin irritants. It not only works great with the sponge but also as a cleaner for my makeup brushes. I apply a small amount to my sponge after application, rub it in under water, then leave it out to dry on my sink and it’s as good as new by the next time I need it.
