The Silicone Diamond Beauty Blender Review

Saturday, 3 June 2017

Let's see what all the hype is about shall we?

For a while now I've been tempted to buy a silicone blender to see what all the fuss was about. I loved my other beauty blender but had to get rid of it because it was literally falling apart and it looked so gross. I then recently purchased another beauty blender and it was awful, it didn't work at all. I would try to blend out my foundation but it literally would just soak up my foundation. 

About a week ago I went on to Amazon and purchased a silicone blender for about £7.99 (the company was called base beauty and it did say that on the actual blender it wiped off after I used it a few times, oops) and could not wait to put into my makeup routine. For the past couple of months I've been using my brushes but I'm going to be honest and admit that I hardly clean them. They've pretty much become rock solid from all the products I've been using. 

At first, the silicone blender is a bit difficult to use but then you sort of get the hang of it. I pretty much know what I'm doing with it now. The rounder part I use to apply my foundation and my primer as I find this covers my face a lot easier and then I'll use the smaller point of it to blend out my concealer which I think is ten timers easier than using a brush or a beauty blender. Also, not only do I use this for my primer, concealer and foundation I also use it to help blend out my highlighter. To blend out my highlighter I just simply fold the silicone blender in half and dab it out.

The two things that I want to point out with the silicone blender is that number one, is uses less product than a beauty blender because it doesn't soak it all up and also, it's a lot more hygienic then a beauty blender because after you use it, you can simply wash it. Oh and also, you don't need to wet it before using it. The one thing that I hated about the beauty blender was that you had to wet it before you used it or other wise it wouldn't really work. You know when you go to sit down and do your makeup and you grab your beauty blender but it's hard as anything because it isn't damp enough? Yeah, that annoyed me.

I personally prefer to use this to a beauty blender and a foundation brush. It's not that I'm not a fan of a beauty blender, I'm just not a fan of how dirty they get and how you have to get it damp before using it. They can also be full of bacteria which isn't obviously good for the skin but when it comes to the silicone blender, there's a lot less bacteria as it can easily be rinsed off and cleaned. 

So in conclusion, I'm all for this silicone blender. Yeah, it feels weird to begin with but after a week or so you get use to it and you'll find how to use it properly and what works best with it. It's ten times easier to clean and also uses a lot less product because it doesn't soak any of it up so you can't really fault it there but I can get why some people dislike it when it comes to the actual application of the silicone blender.
