Beautyblender

Hello my darlings, hope you doing fine.

Today I want to tell you my personal opinion on the Beautyblender.

IMG_0499

I wear my foundation usually with the Zoeva stippling brush 125. While browsing multiple blogs and videos, I came across the Beautyblender. Each beauty blogger has him, talks about it and so I became curious.

IMG_0543

What is a Beautyblender?

IMG_0502

The Beautyblender is a make-up sponge. The sponge was developed by the artist Rea Ann Silva Make Up to a professional and flawless finish while creating application of foundation, concealer, powder or other products. The Blender is made from a plastic foamed / resin based on polyurethane. It contains (as well as cleaner) no animal products and is therefore entirely suitable for a vegan lifestyle. He is free from latex and has no seams, so it is especially suitable for sensitive skin. By its shape you can easily apply your foundation also in points, where it’s hard to reach with your fingers or brushes (for example under the eyes, on the nose).

I bought the original Beautyblender and the Micro Mini Beautyblender with the cleaning fluid in the drugstore Müller.

price: 19,99 €

How do I use it?

IMG_0505
The Beauty Blender can be applied both dry and wet. I’ve tried both versions and get better at foundation with the moist and concealer with the drier variant.

  • Moist variant
    Put the blender under water (I always use lukewarm water). The Beautyblender will get quite a bit of size. Now you express the sponge until it is just damp and not really wet.First distribute the foundation with your fingers on the face and then incorporate with the Beautyblender by pat.
  • dry variant
    Here, the sponge is simply dry. The application is exactly the same as in the moist variant.

How often do I clean the Beautyblender?

IMG_0527

I clean my Beautyblender 3 times a week, at least after every second use. Therefore I use the Beautyblender cleaning fluid. Cleaning hereby actually works like I would use shampoo for my brushes. First I make the Beautyblender with lukewarm water completely wet. Then I give a small amount of the Beautycleanser on my palm and dab with the dirtiest place first in the cleaner. Then I rub the sponge few times and wash it out. I’ll do that for so long until the sponge is clean and no more cleaner is in him.

Beautyblender Micro mini – What is the difference?

IMG_0511

In contrast to the Beautyblender, the Micro Mini Beautyblender are specifically for contour, highlight, and precisely application of makeup into the smallest parts of the face. This makeup blender lets you perfect apply makeup into the inner eye corners, brow bones, sides of nose, cheeks, and more. Designed with exclusive beautyblender® material and one fourth the size of the original sponge, these non-disposable micro mini sponges are the perfect tool for concealing small areas.

Can be applied both dry and wet like the original Beautyblender.

price: 19,99 €

My opinion on the Beauty Blender

I tested the Beautyblender and the Micro Mini Beautyblender with the cleaning fluid now about one month. I admit that I certainly had my problems with the first uses of the Blenders, because I had to get used to the new management. With each use of the Beautyblender it was easier to handle. I really like him as a tool and use it every second day actually. You get a wonderful natural, streak-free finish. Although I do still like my brush for applying foundation, but the Beautyblender has become routine as an integral part of my make-up and I don’t want to miss it anymore.

A few days ago I received a packet of Yves Rocher for testing. You can find all this products online or in their catalog.

IMG_9683

  • Lipstick – Bromberry 

    This lipstick has struck me because of the flowery packaging. A sweet, light packaging, perfect for traveling. I chose the color Bromberry, because as you know I love darker tones. On the lips, however, she seemed to me a little brighter – rather pink. It’s not highly pigmented, for me wonderful for every day. Very discreet.

price: 3,99 €

  • Nourishing Lip Balm Karité 

    Of this product I expected more. Since the recipe has changed, I can advise against buying. No comparison to the old care sticks. It feels less supple, and shortly afterwards the lips are dry again. In addition, the smell is not pleasant. I hope that the old formula will be used again.

price: 1,99 €

  • Nail varnish Couleur Vegetale Camélia Nacré 

    This varnish has pleasantly surprised me. The bottle comes in a sleek design which I really liked. Also applying was easy thanks the innovative brush.Despite brighter nuance I found him very color intensive, long-lasting and gentle on the nails. I would also like to test the other colors.

  • Repair-BodyMilk 

    From this body milk I ‚m really excited. It supplies the skin with building materials and repairs them. The skin is supple, soft and visibly fairer. It also smells very good. I have an extremely sensitive skin but I assure you it also helps in drier skin. I use it daily and I am very satisfied . My skin feels better.pice: 4,99 €

  • Duftspray Monoi 

    When I use this spray, I feel like being on holiday. It moisturizes and gives a gentle sea breeze envelops with an exotic fragrance. The texture with organic aloe vera spreads easily and provides intensive care. The skin feels soft and smells of monoi. But I must say, this fragrance does not like everyone. You love it or hate it.  I love it!

    If my skin feels unclean I always use this mask. The clay absorbs excess sebum immediately. The pores are cleaned by the depth of and my skin feels clean , like new.

SEPTEMBER FAVORITES

SEPTEMBER FAVORITES

Hello beautiful  people ,

A little earlier, I want to show you my September favorites  that have accompanied me this month.

5 favorite products

Clinique – CC Cream

The CC cream has a sun protection of 30 so it’s ideal for me.  It covers and corrects my skin, moisturizes and lasts all day. I have tested several CC creams but nothing has convinced me like this.

Chloé – See by Chloé / Eau de Parfum

I wanted this parfume for a long time. The top note is bergamot  with the base notes musk, sandalwood and vanilla, all playing around the heart note composed of Yasmin and Ylang Ylang. A very flowery and oriental fragrance, that can be worn both in summer and winter.

Rimmel lasting finish by Kate Moss lipstick – Nr. 01

I absolutely love this color! It’s darker than the typical cherry red, but it’s not a burgundy.

The formula is moist, well-pigmented, smooth and creamy, and smells sweet and sort of fruity. I surely will purchase more of these lipsticks.

Essie – Maximillian Straße-Her

The quality of Essie convinced me every time anew. A dirty turquoise -mint, which fits surprisingly well to any everyday outfit. At this time I wear it very often. Belongs with marshmallow and fiji to my currently favorites.

Nivea – fresh pure deodorant

I always try new aluminum-free deodorants  and many of them have really disappointed me.

The spray I bought twice  and I am still satisfied with his action. It is well tolerated , smells good and does its job . In addition, very important: without aluminum! ( ACH )
