I love your blog. I’m wondering if you think beauty blender works with moisturecover, specifically by dabbing it onto the back of my hand as you do with prolongwear concealer. Thanks for all the advice!

usually i’m one of those people pooh-poohing something expensive and hype-y. but after i saw a couple of pictures of the back room of a fashion week, and saw tables upon tables strewn with this pink sponge, i just took the jump. boy am i glad i did! more than 2 years later and two sponges later, it is one of the best things in my arsenal.

anybody who’s still thinking about it? DON’T! just git it!

I can spot the difference in application between the brush and BB. The BB is more subtle and allows you to build up coverage, IMO. I bought the cleanser and 2 pack on Amazon for much cheaper than Sephora, although I noticed the price has risen. But you can still get a 2 pack BB on Amazon for $23, which makes it a bargain. The liquid cleanser is ok, so I’m not sure if I’ll continue to use it. I may try something new.

By: Majick Fri, 14 Feb 2014 19:36:18 +0000 I am a firm believer in the BB sponge. I think it’s wildly expensive but NO OTHER SPONGE COMPARES (that I know of). I’ve tried a few that were supposed to be the same but the texture is way different.

The BB sponge is meant to be used damp. When it’s dry it’s really not that soft nor does it work as well. I never use it to apply makeup; I only use it to blend it out. Sometimes I just bounce it around my face if I feel like I look a little powdery and it sets everything.

I do use the cleanser, I have the liquid and the dry bar for travel. THe liquid can be a little tough to get out of the sponge but I put it on my hands and then kind of wash the outside of the sponge so it doesn’t really get too much soap in there. Foundation brushes get washed with either my oil cleanser first or I’m going to dry the Dawn diluted with water trick that someone mentioned.

AND – MOST IMPORTANT – I would love to be Tab’s VALENTINE! The Boosh is gonna be jealous. LOL
