Tool Review...Cosmopolitan Blend Perfection sponge

Hey there Beauts!

I was out shopping yesterday...As you do on a Thursday afternoon! And came across the Cosmopolitan Blend Perfection sponge in Superdrug.  I remembered hearing a bit about this and reading a few rave reviews so I picked it and thought...'meh it's £4.99 so if it all goes horribly wrong atleast I havent spent £20 on a brush'.  Thankfully for me...It all went horribly RIGHT!

In my opinion this is the best bloomin' thing since sliced bread!  I believe this is the UK's version of the 'Beauty Blender' and does pretty much the same job but trust me this makes your foundation just blend into your skin and look really natural and flawless (I hate that term but I can't actually think of anything better right now'

You take the sponge and run it under water, then squeeze out the excess water and begin blending using a stippling sort of motion.  Because you're using the moisture from the sponge your foundation doesn't sit on your dry patches in fact when you use this....'What dry patches..?!?' so far I've tested this with my trusty Photoready, the infamous Healthy mix and my Clinique foundation and they all look lovely, great finish and you get an evened out skintone and lovely glowy skin and I've found that I end up using less product because this just does the job with one layer of foundation whereas before I was packing on two to three layers for a very full coverage!

It has a pointed end for getting in those more hard to reach areas such as around the nose and under the eyes which brings me to another reason why I love this sponge...There is absolutely no pulling or tugging on the skin, it's so light and glides across the skin whereas before I was using my fingers and pulling on my poor sensitive skin...NOT GOOD!

The ONLY downside to this is once you've used it, it'll never be clean again, no matter how much you wash with baby shampoo or soap you'll never get those darned foundation marks off it however at £4.99 I could easily re-purchase every 3-4 months say and not even lose any sleep over it.

Thnks for checking in guys, if you're in the UK you'll have finally seen the sun these past few days and have probably caught a bit of a tan too, check out my post on staying safe in the sun HERE.  Don't forget to leave me your lovely comments and don't forget to click the little follow button if you havent already :D

Until next time lovelies

Ciao for now!



  1. Great review! :)

    I've never paid much attention to this before and usually just walk by it without a second thought. I just think of all sponge type foundation tools as giving thick, cakey coverage after using one of those triangle sponges years ago but I'll have to give this a try.

  2. I also wouldn't have paid any attention to this before your review! :) I might even go out and buy one!
    Also - is it just me or does it look like the little owl of the e-on advert? haha x

  3. I am so gonna buy this now! I consider buying this all the time but never actually do, but I certainy will next time i'm in Superdrug :) x
