Everything I know about beauty blenders

Disclaimer : All the content I share in this blog are my personal opinions gained out of experience. Others may have differences in opinion. 

After a short break Im back to blogging! This time I’m sharing some of my Make up knowledge through this platform. To start with I thought I’ll share some of my experiences with some blender sponges.

To begin with, everyone of us who loves make up, would always prefer for a flawless base. The first challenge is always finding the right foundation shade for your skin tone, The second one will most probably be blending them correctly for a flawless finish.

I have tried many sponge blenders to achieve the finish.

What is a beauty blender ?

Let me give you a brief idea about what a sponge blender is, and what its uses are. While using a brush/hand to apply the product on your skin, there might be chances of getting streaks. However, a sponge blender, on the other side gives a more perfect finish. You can use these sponges to apply moisturisers, tinted moisturisers, primers, foundations, and even use them for contouring and highlighting. There are different kinds of blenders available in the market and which come in different shapes serving different purposes.

How to use a beauty blending sponge?

You can use a blending sponge for either wet or dry application. For Wet application , expose the blender to running water or dip it in a bowl of water till its completely saturated. Then, squeeze the water out completely. Now, the blender will become double the size. Please make sure it is damp. Now, you may use this to apply foundation on your skin. Apply the product (foundation) using a dabbing motion (by gently pressing it into the skin), never try to wipe the product onto your face using a sponge. For dry application, please use the sponge directly on to the face, using the same motion. 🙂


  • You get an even and flawless finish if applied in the correct method.


  • It sucks up the product more compared to a brush ( yeah after all its a sponge) , especially when used with dry application method.

Cleaning the blender :

You can use make up brush cleansing soap/ liquids to clean these, they need to be cleaned often as they suck up a lot of product. Some of the blender brands come up with their own preferred cleaning liquids.

Now, let me share some of my experience using some of the beauty blenders I have tried.

The Original Beauty Blender :

This is the original beauty blender – which started the revolution of blending sponges. This is the most preferred blender of all time, it iss the softest one I have tried. For wet application, it turns squishy and very soft. It also gives the perfect finish. The original beauty blender also comes in different sizes and shapes for different purposes. They also provide reusable bloating sponges called Blotterazzi, which suck up all the oil in my T Zone. These blenders come in attractive colours.

PAC Ultimate Beauty Blender:

This blender is one of my favourites, as it is somewhat close to the original beauty blender when it comes to application and blending. The awesome part is that you get two sponges with a mesh to protect them , two of them are of different shapes which serve for blending foundation, highlighting, baking, contouring etc. It doubles up the size and shrinks back to original size when it dries.They also have mini blenders for the purpose under eye concealing and blending. They come in two colours ( Red & Black)

PAC Ball Beauty Blender Sponge:

This comes in a ball shape and I use it for blending and becomes really huge when its wet and blends really well. Since its shape, it cannot reach corner areas. I mainly use it to blend and use to pick up extra product on the face.
