Hey beautiful people.
A while back I received a make up blender from BelláPierre so I decided to but my brush works blender on the shelf and give this one a go.
Bellapierre Bella Blender
Packing: It is packed in a small plastic box.
How it feels: It feels firm but soft un-dampened. When dampened it is still soft and yet firm.
Price: ≈$15 USD
First Impressions: I really like both the look and the feel of the Bella Blender. It is small in size but it will at least double when you dampen it. However, Instantly when I dampened it the top of it broke. I am unsure if this is due to a flaw in manufacturing, perhaps in packing or perhaps I am just to rough when it comes to dampen beauty sponges.
Application: I am currently using a liquid foundation and cream contour products. When it came to applying the products it did a decent job but it did keep a lot of the product in the sponge. I actually ended up using more product then I would regularly do and compared to the sponge I am currently using it did not blend out the product nearly as well.
The Bella blender felt almost too soft for my liking and instead of spreading the product it almost allowed it to go back into the sponge. After a while I actually stopped using it and went for my other makeup sponge.
Where to buy
How to use a makeup blending sponge
How to use a sponge is very easy, most sponges will need to be dampened before use to allow for more bounce in the sponge. I always lightly dampen my sponge and then I apply some product hand, dip the sponge in it and then with the sponge I apply it to my face with a dabbing motion.
What I like about the make up sponges is that they seem to apply make up more evenly than brushes. I have always been a brush girl up until a few months back. Then sponge easily blends out contour and highlighter. It is also easy to apply powder with them as well. I mostly use a brush for powder unless I want to either bake or decrease any creasing that might occur.
All products from Bellápierre are cruelty-free and they do offer a vegan product range as well.
