Hey guys, it's been awhile! I just wanted to share with you something I've picked up as recently as yesterday! So i was browsing through Myer when I came across the Kit Cosmetics section and stumbled across this as their new beauty tool. They call it the "blender sphere". I was really intrigued by this as I currently own, use and LOVE the original beauty blender and use it to apply my liquid foundation. So when i saw this i was instantly curious. First of all, the shape is completely different to the "egg" shape of the beauty blender.
When I look at it I think of it as the egg has been stretched out. I'm not too sure how i feel about it as i have this feeling it's just going to be difficult to stipple the foundation evenly over my face. Also I'm not sure and i forgot to ask whether this can be used wet and whether it expands, I really have no idea because I haven't had the chance to use it yet. It retails for $14.95 so I think it's reasonably priced. Definitely anything more and it would be pushing it a little.
On the packaging it has been described as "An ergonomic, 3D sponge to revolutionise your foundation application". I would like to hope so!
When comparing to the beauty blender, you can see that they are completely different in terms of shape (I guess you could say colour lol) and also in texture. If you have had the chance to feel the beauty blender, you'll find that it is quite soft and "squishy". The Blender Sphere however feels a lot more firm and less spongy so I'm curious as to whether it will distribute foundation nicely. And again, whether it will expand if i soak it under water first and if that will help the application more smoothly.
Has anyone else seen these around or tried it? If you want to know how it goes let me know and I'll keep you all updated!
