similar to beautyblender

I need to pat myself on the back for making a good decision in purchasing this beauty – Beauty Pod Airbrush FX Sponge – for a grand total of $10!  Oh yes, it’s amazing!  It’s almost as awesome as Hello Kitty!  I’ve wanted one of these make-up sponges ever since I read raving reviews about Beauty Blenders but I was too el cheapo to fork out too much money.  So glad I saw this at IMATS last year!

Before The Beauty Pod Airbrush FX Sponge Entered My Life…

  • I used my fingers to apply my liquid foundation and BB cream.  Works for some people, but not that good for me because the foundation would seep under my nails and curdle up there.
  • Wedged make-up sponges were a waste of money because they would soak up a lot of the liquid foundation and I had a habit of using them once and then dumping them (*insert your own one-night stand joke here*)
  • And I bought a few foundation brushes and tried out a stippling brush, but with the streaks, my face resembled skidmarks my Husband left behind in the porcelain throne after a good Indian curry!  (I think that’s why my toilet went beserk the other day – don’t believe me?  Check out the live recording of the crazy toilet in action!)

Enter The Beauty Pod Airbrush FX Sponge…

  • Flawlessly fantastic foundation and BB cream application!  Also works with stick foundations – and when I used it with my Invisible Zinc foundation, I got a compliment from a girl-friend about my complexion which I credit half to this sponge and the other half to this miracle serum.
  • I also used it yesterday to blend concealer under my eyes and it worked well too.
  • The shape (pointy top and round bottom) of the sponge works well with blending in all areas of my face.
  • The sponge is dense so it doesn’t soak up liquid foundations easily.
  • It’s latex-free (I am allergic to latex) and it can be washed and reused.  (I wash it with the Daiso Sponge Cleaner – magic!!)
  • It also doubles up as stress ball.  Good for times when I get frustrated with applying my falsies and when I want to squeeze something else other than my own excess tummy fat.

Have you tried one of these beauty sponges before?  Do you have excess tummy fat too?  I feel your pain!  ARGH!!!  I’m off to the Gym to do Pilates…wish me luck!

    i spotted something extremely similar in Myer at the Manicare section the other day. looks suspiciously like your sponge & the beauty blender. it also happened to be pink as well! i can’t remember the price but i do remember putting it in to the “beauty brain bank” to investigate it further on another lunch break.

      @Madam M, Oh yes, there are pink and purples versions of this. I chose black thinking that it wouldn’t show up if it gets dirty…but it does because it’s usually skin-coloured stuff I put on my face and not black-coloured foundation LOL.

      @Ashlynn, There are cheaper alternatives on the market so if you find one, it’s worth trying 🙂

      @Megan, LOL, thanks Megan. If only I was funny in real life amongst people instead of being so shy!! 😉

    I’m still currently using my beauty blender but I have re-stock with a new one. I used to much and now it’s out of shape. Thanks for the review, I will certainly check this out.

      @cynthia, Beauty Blenders aren’t readily available in Australia so when I saw this baby, I knew I had to try it out…and I love it 🙂

    Tummy fat stress ball people unite! Haha. This resembles a lot of sponges out there, how does it compare to say beauty blender or the one from target by…that one lady? Also am I a dork for liking this one more because it’s black?

      @Eden-Avalon, Hear, hear!!! And I haven’t tried any other sponges like Beauty Blender so can’t really compare… And you’re hardly a dork, my dear 🙂

    I’ve never tried any of these blender sponges, but I think I need to!

    Same boat man, do not want to spend $30 for the Beauty blender and shipping fees, despite the greatness it seems to carry. Can you get this somewhere in Australia, other than IMATS ? But I have seen a suspiciously similar looking purple Manicare one, eh close enough.

      @Margaret, Actually, I think if you check beautypod dot com dot au, you’ll get some links to buy it and it’s definitely not gonna cost $30+

      I’ve seen the Manicare one too and I was tempted to buy it too, but I don’t like the shape of it…
