Hi Girls. Today I am going to review Forever 21 makeup sponge which I showed you guys in my October shopping haul. I got it from Malaysia last year and I am using it regularly since then in my makeup.
I was in love with the concept of a beauty blender the moment I saw it in some videos. For beginners who don’t have any idea what a beauty bender is, Basically It is a makeup sponge whose different parts can be used for different purposes in make up like foundation setting, concealer setting, contouring etc. The original beauty blender is very expensive (around 3300 INR I guess). So when I spotted this forever 21 make up sponge at a Malaysian mall for just INR 225 I instantly bought it as I first wanted to try cheaper alternatives just to get to know how a makeup sponge works for me.
So coming back to this Forever 21 makeup sponge review, I really like how this creates a seamless finish for me. I don’t apply it dry. When I run it under water and squeeze, it becomes bigger in size. The best part what I like about it is that it creates a seamless foundation finish. The pointed part can be used for concealing below eyes. I use the side part for bronzer blending. So, basically it’s an all in one replacement for brushes for me. Below is the picture in the left without foundation and at the right where I have applied foundation with Forever 21 makeup sponge. See how the base looks well blended. It makes the foundation look like second skin without looking cakey.
People who have used beauty blender say that Forever 21 makeup sponge is very hard but it works fine for me as I have not used beauty blender so I can’t say anything about it. I wonder if this works so well for me then how will be the actual beauty blender. That is on my wish list now. Another good budget make up sponge is the real techniques one.
So girls, If you are a beginner and looking for a budget make up sponge then you should go for Forever 21 makeup sponge and once you get habitual then you can go for expensive ones.
