Hello everyone! Tomorrow I go back to school and am dreading it once again, I mean only having one week off is such a teaser. Anyways, as promised from last week, I have for you a review on my newest addition to my makeup tools collection: the BrushWorks Complexion Sponges. I was lucky enough to be kindly gifted these from their company and am so thankful and grateful for them! So today I’m going to be giving you all the ins and outs of this product as I have genuinely fallen in love with them.
BrushWorks is a small makeup tools brand which is available online. They have an extensive collection of manicure and beauty accessories with super cute and colourful packaging. There is a range of makeup brushes and sets, with a lot of them being great for travelling. I have the Complete Blender Sponge Set which comes equipt with one large facial complexion sponge with two smaller pointed sponges and retails at £4.99 for one sponge which I think is such a fab deal!
The sponges are said to be very universal, being able to be used for a variety of steps throughout your makeup application process. I found that the smaller sponges were great at covering harder to reach areas such as under the eyes and were perfect for creating defined contouring lines.
Perfect for contouring and strobing – highlighting your natural facial features. Use to apply foundation, cover dark circles & eliminate harsh lines flawlessly.
The sponges have a really nice feel to them, almost a smooth bounciness to them. They feel really soft both to touch and on the skin too. I found that the sponges distributed the product on my face nicely but did find the smaller sponges to pick up a bit more product on the surface in comparison to the larger sponge.
For me the packaging isn’t the complete ‘wow’ factor but there are elements that I do really like. I do love all the colours on the casing and the information displayed on the front and back. It is just your standard plastic box with plastic molds inside where the sponges lay snugly. One thing I do really like o the packaging is that the pink on the box has this holographic kinda irridecent effect which I thought was quite a nice touch. I think for the price you pay for the product, it does the job quite nicely and stores the item well.
WET VS DRY
-It’s not only latex free, but it’s also designed to be used wet so that it only absorbs the amount of product necessary for perfect application, but can also be used dry for amazing results.
-Use with water for effortless blending.
As you can see the larger sponge expanded a lot, quite a bit more than expected actually. The same goes for the smaller pointed sponge, expanding by what appeared to almost be twice the original size!
So that was my in-depth review on the BrushWorks sponges and I hope you enjoyed it and maybe discovered a new item that you would like to add to your collection. Have you ever tried out any of BrushWorks products or would you consider it? Also Halloween is tomorrow and I was just wondering if you are more into the blood and gore side of Halloween or if you like the cutesy side.
P.S: I was just about to say Christmas is coming up, but then I realized that it may be a bit early for that! If you are going out for Halloween what are you going to dress up as? Byesies! Xxxxxxxx
