Flawless Finish: Cosmopolitan Perfection Blender

Hello everyone, 

I have found the perfect dupe for the beauty blender and I am going to share it with you today.

The Cosmopolitan Perfection Blender is a great dupe for the Beauty Blender and has been talked about on Youtube and blogging sites for a while now so I thought I would find out what the hype was about and honestly after using this I totally understand why it is talked about so much! This foundation sponge gives a great even coverage and flawless finish to your make-up, it is  inexpensive and can be purchased at Superdrug for £4.95. (a lot cheaper than the Beauty Blender!).

The Perfection Blender is easy to keep clean, I wash mine with tea tree facial wash from The Body Shop after every makeup application to help maintain the original condition of the sponge - I like to keep it looking as new as possible. Tea tree is know to have antibacterial properties so to me this seems like the appropriate product to use, obviously you can use brush cleaners etc if you have them.

The sponge is easy to hold and is quite dense which helps to give a quick even coverage.
I use the top of the sponge to even out my concealer and foundation in the smaller areas of my face such as around my eye and nose area (the hard to reach places).
The bottom part of the sponge is perfect for blending your foundation evenly across bigger areas of your face as the base of the sponge has more surface area than the top and makes it much easier to apply.

- Wet sponge and squeeze out excess water
- Use a bouncing or 'stippling' method to apply your foundation and concealer to give your make-up an airbrushed finish 

This sponge covers up all my imperfections extremely well and gives my face an airbrushed finish! I recommend this product to everyone!

  1. i want it!!

  2. My friend used this to apply myu foundation and I loved it. Seems to always be sold out at my local superdrug :(

  3. I've seen this before and think it's mega cute! It's quite cool, I use a mousse foundation though! xx

  4. wow this looks amazing. im not very good at applying foundation at all. lol. xx

  5. I've heard great reviews about this sponge, and as you have also described, it seems to be a great tool! However after some research i heard that it may be quite unhygienic in the long run, since the sponge will harbour quite a lot of bacteria even following a wash..This was one of the reasons why i never gave into buying it <3

    Would you please describe how you wash it? I would love to try it :)
