Maybelline Dream Blender*

Maybelline Dream Blender

It feels like new types of sponges are being brought out every two seconds, but I thought I would draw attention to Maybelline’s newest – the Dream Blender.

Looking a little like a candle, the Dream Blender feels like a firmer Beauty Blender with a handle, and the clean freak in me absolutely loves it! Before I use it, I dampen the sponge slightly, which tends to soften it up a little, and I love the fact that I can stand it up, without it rolling everywhere.

The Dream Blender has been designed to be used alongside their new Dream Velvet Foundation (review to come) but I’ve found it works equally well with my daily foundation line up (which currently rotates between YSL and Chanel).

The pointed tip means that it’s ridiculously easy to get to awkward areas like the around the nose, and I love the airbrushed effect that the blender creates.

Maybelline’s Dream Blender is priced at £4.99 and is available here (UK) and here (US).

    I do have the foundation but still not sold on this blender, I think I’d probably only use it once and then go back to my Real Techniques sponge. 🙂

      Oh what is it you don’t like about the blender? To soften mine I’ve been using it damp, although I don’t really use it with this foundation … oops!

        When I’m putting the foundation on using the blender it doesn’t seem to stick to my skin if that makes sense! I sort of press it in, go to apply more and what was on my skin beforehand just rubs off. Maybe I just need to change my technique.

          Oh no – that’s no good at all! Have you tried just using your fingers? I love how natural it makes foundation look!

            I’ve not tried that yet but may give it a go because I actually really like the foundation!
