Makeup blenders give great results when used correctly. Beauty blender is the ultimate tool which most makeup artists use to achieve a flawless look. I always wanted to pick one but was a bit skeptical on shelling a lot of money. I recently came across the Power Puff blenders from W7 and decided to pick them up. Today’s review is all about W7 Power Puff Face Blender Sponge. Read on to know more!
Rounded cosmetic sponge use to blend foundation, concealer, highlighters and contour creams
My Experience with W7 Power Puff Face Blender Sponge:
The face blender comes in a transparent plastic case with a tape as a seal. The package is not great and it obviously looks a bit cheap. The face blender sponge sits perfectly in the pack. There are some instructions given on the back of the package. But, like any beauty blender, this also can be used in the same way! The sponge comes in two colors, pink and hot pink.
The sponge is around 6-7cms tall. It is squishy and bounces back after pressing. You can easily hold the sponge in the hand. The sponge can be squeezed in anywhere, and thus, the product is travel-friendly. The sponge soaks a lot of water and swells to almost double its size. Squeezing out excess water can be a bit difficult. It feels like the sponge has a gallon of water. I squeeze till I feel there is almost no water left.
I apply the foundation on the face, and then, blend using the blender. The sponge is soft on the face and doesn’t cause any irritation. The cornered end of the blender make it easier to apply near the eye area and corners of the nose. I use the flat end to blend on the rest of the face. The blender is a bit bouncy on the skin, and I am sure that the beauty blenders are less bouncy.
The patting motion ensures even coverage. There are no streaks, and you can achieve almost flawless finish without any streaks. The product is latex-free, and this comes as a benefit product for those few people who are allergic to the latex. The blender soaks up a lot of foundation. For an even coverage, I have to use more than 2 pumps of the foundation, and due to this, I end up using more product.
The blender sponge is good and I like it. It does take a lot of time to dry and I am a bit concerned as it can attract germs. The beauty blender can also be washed off without any issues, and I use a shampoo to wash it. The base of the beauty blender is not fine and it wears off a little while being used, over time. Overall, this one is an alternative to the expensive beauty blenders. It is worth a try if you are a beginner.
