What Brand says:
Price: 20/- USD. Buy it here from Luxola
Made in U.S.A
My experience with this beauty blender:
The lotus bud shaped, bright pink color beauty blender comes packed in this round, transparent plastic film jar. All the details regarding the product, its usage is provided on the card paper inside the packaging. The beauty blender is sure a eye candy but look at the packaging too..it shouts it contains a star inside ;)
I had my eyes on this beauty since it's launch years back...I wanted this in my life badly. Meanwhile I did shopped some of it dupes from Bornpretty, they are good for the price they come but quite honestly at that time too I was sure to buy the real thing! Because real is real! And now after one month or more, of it's purchase it has become an essential part of my makeup routine!

This cute beauty blender is soft to touch, very fluffy and almost the size of my pinky finger. The texture is luxury like.. suede to touch unlike any cheap alternative. The pointed side is perfect for applying foundation on hard to reach areas like under eye area, eye corners, nose corner. Whereas the wider round base side is good for foundation application on rest of the face. It can be used to apply powder, liquid, mineral as well as cream makeup though i prefer to use my beauty blender for liquid foundation and concealer application ohhh and CC cream also.
To use it, you have to prepare the beauty blender for makeup application. Drench your beauty bender using squeezing motion under running water until it expands and is saturated with water. Squeeze out the excess water and towel dry leaving it damp, ready to use. The size almost doubles up after drenching it in water.
Once the beauty blender is prepared you can use it to apply your makeup base. On everyday basis I like to apply my Lakme CC cream with this beauty blender. Also i prefer to use this with my medium coverage liquid foundation, i use it with L'Oreal True match super blendable foundation and i like the natural undetectable coverage and finish it gives. It blends the liquid products like CC and liquid foundation on my skin so quickly and effortlessly in no time. It's so easy to use and is great for when you want a natural look and also when you want some coverage but want it to be undetectable! The application and blending takes a lot less time with this. It is lot faster and easy to use than other methods and the finish is amazingly flawless and natural.

I like to dot my face with foundation first and then blend it with this beauty blender by using soft bouncing motion or say stipple motion. You can apply the foundation directly to the beauty blender itself if you want, but that way it gets more dirty, so i avoid this way. The pointed side is good for applying concealer, foundation on hard to reach areas like mouth corner, eye area, nose corner whereas the wider part is perfect for blending the foundation on rest of the face. I am loving this beauty blender so much as it really have deducted some good minutes from the overall time i usually used to take, to blend the foundation. So it's really good buy...or shall i say an investment!
To clean the beauty blender, you can buy the beauty bender cleanser. I don't have that right now but am thinking to buy that too as I am planning to buy the beauty blender mini version too. As of now I clean it with a regular baby shampoo and it works just fine as all the foundation marks and dirt comes off easily. It's really easy to clean. But as the beauty blender is pricey so I'll be buying the cleanser pretty soon to maintain the quality of it.
Pricey! I know this would be the reaction of many of you because first thing that comes to mind is, oh it's just a blending sponge! But let me tell you, you will only understand it's worth and how different it is, when you will buy it. I won't say it's a must have for everyone. But it's a must have for all those who ever wanted their foundation to look as beautifully blended yet natural as it is done professionally. It's totally a value for money product and an Investment for your makeup!
Available online only in India. I bought it from Luxola.
