My Experience with W7 Silicone Pebble Makeup Face Blender:
The silicone blender comes in a plastic package. There is information on the back of the package. The package is not very fancy and looks a bit cheap, but most of the W7 products come in such packages, so I do not have much problem with it. The silicone sponge has W7 written all over it. The blender is made from silicone. The sponge is see-through and flat. The sponge is soft and is very smooth on the face.
The sponge is non-porous and it doesn’t absorb any foundation. Usually, beauty blender soaks up a lot of foundation and I always had issues with washing it and since it soaks up water, I was scared that it accumulates germs. With the silicone sponge, it doesn’t absorb any foundation and a little foundation is more than enough. For a good coverage with the beauty blender, I need 3 pumps of foundation but with the silicone sponge, 1 pump of foundation gives me an even coverage. The sponge is very easy to wash. I just wash it with water after use and dry it with a towel. Once every week, I use shampoo or body gel and wash it thoroughly.
The product lasts longer than a beauty blender. The sponge works with foundation, blushes, and concealer. I have used it with powdery blushes too and it works great. The sponge is very smooth on the skin and it blends the foundation very easily. It provides a very smooth and even finish. The sponge provides a very buildable coverage. The application can be a little tricky at the start as the sponge is not squishy and it doesn’t give you enough control. I applied the foundation onto the skin, and then, used the blender to blend the product. You need to work a bit for blending; it feels like the foundation is sitting on the top of the skin and is not being absorbed, but once you start using it, over time you will get how to use it and you can work your way.
The sponge smoothens out the foundation on the face and when you are blending it, it does lightly stick onto the skin. The sponge gives a flawless finish but you need to pat a lot and work with the blender. The shape of the sponge gives you a little control while applying the concealer under the eye. Overall, I love the product and happy that I tried it!
