The Elizabeth Arden Foundation Blender Brush is treated like my first born child. I love this thing. Yeah, so, it’s a sponge with a handle but dude, dude….it works wonders. I use this nifty little dodad to swipe and blend out foundation, contour under my eyes and blend conceal to an airbrushed finish, and heck I even have an extra one that I use to apply serums and moisturizers! It’s that handy! And the $15 price tag makes it a total buy and a half.
Budget friendly babes might like the even cheaper Target Up & Up Precision Blender Cosmetic Sponge at a mere $4.99 quarter the price of Elizabeth Arden’s version and gives you enough left over change to buy two more or perhaps just save that extra $10 bucks and buy some Cadbury Easter Eggs on the way to check out.
Yeah, you read that right…Target ventures into the world of makeup brushes and such with this new Up & Up Precision Blender Cosmetic Sponge. I’ve personally tried it but I have hopes it’ll have the same dense head as my beloved Elizabeth Arden’s version. Otherwise I see no major differences…pointed head check, handle check, sponge tip, double check.
Granted not everyone loves the idea of sponges especially due to bacteria so be sure to wash it daily and toss it after a few months to keep things happy and healthy around your makeup neighborhood.
If you’ve always wanted to try the Elizabeth Arden one but just didn’t have the buckage to indulge or just didn’t feel like $15 was well spent on what is essentially a sponge that has a handle, well, perhaps this new cheaper version from Target will finally have you indulging!
Grab it at your local Target or online at Target.com.
I’m not saying it’s life changing but it could be.
