Cosmopolitan 'Blend Perfection Sponge' Review...

I managed to get one of these on Friday and I used it for the first time today.

Here is my Cosmopolitan 'Blend Perfection Sponge'...

This is sometimes called a 'Beauty Blender' on other blogs (if you're confused!) but this is what it's actually called (just in case you ask for one in store and get given a strange look!)

The 'Blend Perfection Sponge' is a soft, pink piece of sponge that you use to apply/blend your foundation. It's 100% latex-free, so it's perfect for you if you're allergic to this material.

To use it, simply wet the sponge and squeeze out any excess water. Then, apply foundation to the back of your hand or on to the sponge and apply your foundation using a stippling (bouncing) motion in order to achieve a flawless face. Rinse after use.

I tried it today with my YSL Teint Radiance and it was a cinch to use! A word of warning though: foundation may stain the sponge! I only had time to rinse mine under plain warm water, but I will have to use some mild shampoo in order to get rid of the foundation mark that mine now has! I'd like the sponge to stay pink! :)

I really recommend one of these if you haven't tried one before... it's so quick and easy to use.

I bought mine from Superdrug and it cost £4.95

Have you got one of these 'Beauty Blenders'? Is there anything you use to keep yours squeaky-clean? :) x


  1. I have heard so much about these beauty blenders. I need to try one! Great post.

  2. @DanniiBeauty.. thank you :) I plan on using it every day (despite the dubious colour & shape!) ;) x

  3. Hi Catherine, interesting post. I keep seeing these everywhere but i am yet to try one. I love my flat brush for applying foundation but when i was younger i always used a sponge and it did give great cover. I am thinking about getting this just to try and compare.
    What did you use to apply foundation before using this?

  4. @Nicoletta.. I was using a foundation brush or my fingers before and I haven't used a sponge for ages :) I always used to buy the MAC sponge wedges, but decided to switch to a brush. The sponge is so quick to use, it makes the brush seem a bit of a faff! :) x
