Mini Beauty Blender 

Beauty blenders are a cult favorite for blending foundation, and for good reason. They allow for a perfect makeup application. Now, beauty blender is capitalizing on their fame and issuing some new products. Recently, I had a chance to try one of the mini beauty blenders which cost $18 for a set of 2 from Sephora and similar retailers.

I’m going to have to be completely honest about this one. While I love the original beauty blender, I did not love these. They are really about the size of your finger tip, which makes them a little hard to hold. They’re okay for dabbing on concealer, but I find that I can do just as good a job using my full-size beauty blender that I use for foundation. When it comes to contouring, I use both powder and cream products, and obviously this blender is just for the cream products. Still, I didn’t find that the precise application promised really came through. For the price, I definitely don’t think this product is worth it.

Have you tried these tiny beauty blenders? What did you think? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Beauty Blender Blotterazzi 

Everyone knows about the beauty blender: a cult-product egg-shaped sponge that makes for perfect makeup application. However, I recently was given a new product from this brand: the Beauty Blender Blotterazzi. This is a reusable, thin, egg-shaped sponge that you can use to blot oiliness without messing up your makeup. This product can be purchased from Sephora and similar retailers for $20.

I love that this is a really thin product, and it’s easy to carry with you in a makeup bag. I have been so impressed by how this works. As the name suggests, you can use it to blot oil on your face. No matter what makeup I’m wearing, this product does not mess it up. It quickly absorbs excess oil without removing makeup.

The price of $20 is expensive in comparison to disposable blotting sheets which also work well and are often about $5 – $8, but keep in mind that this is reusable. You can wash it and use it indefinitely, so you’ll probably end up saving money over time if you go through packs of blotting papers quickly. Personally, I think it works even better than blotting papers because I typically only have to put the sponge on my skin once for all the oil to be absorbed, where sometimes I’d have to blot several times with blotting papers.

I think this is such a neat invention, and I highly recommend it to oily guys and gals. You can even use it when you’re not wearing makeup but your skin is looking oily. Have any of you tried this? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section.
