Review: Cosmopolitan Beauty Blender & Blush Brush

Cosmopolitan Beauty Blender & Blush Brush
I was sent this blush brush and sponge a few months ago and after trying them for a while and also being a bit of a lazy student, i've finally got round to reviewing them. They're both from the Cosmopolitan Beauty Expert Range which is available in Superdrug and online.

Blend Perfection Sponge
I was quite optimistic about using a sponge to apply my foundation as I normally use my Sigma F80 Brush which gives a really good finish. To use the sponge you simply wet it so that it's damp and then dip it into foundation on the back of your hand. To test the sponge I did half of my face using my Sigma Brush and then half with the sponge. To be honest I couldn't really tell much difference - they both gave an airbrushed finish and the only difference was around my nose where my Sigma F80 gave a better coverage as the sponge wasn't easy to get into smaller places.  I also found that the sponge used a lot more foundation than if I used a brush as it soaked a lot in so if you're using quite a pricey foundation it might not be worth it. Overall I really liked the effect the sponge gave and I probably will use it again. The sponge retails at £4.95 which I think is quite reasonable for what you're getting especially as I know there are quite a few more expensive options out there which are really similar.

Perfect Finish Blush Brush
I have so many different brushes from lots of different brands so when I received this brush I didn't really know what to expect. I normally use a slightly bigger brush to apply my blusher and for some reason i've never felt the need to purchase an angled brush. I think i'm a bit of a convert as I find it so much easier to put my blusher on using this brush as it's a bit more precise. The quality of the brush is ok; it's not as soft as some of my other brushes but I do like the white handle and the fact it fits into my makeup bag better than my other blush brush! Although I really like the brush I don't think it's worth the £4.50 RRP as i'd be more tempted to purchase ELF's alternative which is slightly cheaper and will probably be a bit softer.

  3. I've never really been too interested in make up sponges as I don't think their very make up bag friendly. I might try this one for the price though x x
