For anyone who has watched a YouTube makeup tutorial, you’ve likely noticed the Beautyblender makes an appearance in nearly every video. The little sponge has developed quite the cult following, and for good reason! When it comes to perfectly blending makeup around the contours of your face, nothing does it quite like the Beautyblender can.
But like every beauty product, this makeup sponge isn’t meant to last forever (case in point: Those horrifying images of moldy makeup seeping into the pink sponges—yuck), so we’re forced to toss it every three months and make another trip to Sephora to drop $20 again. Keeping that in mind, you know we don’t mean this lightly when we say this latest news is major. The Beautyblender is getting a serious upgrade—one that will crank up our supply to last over two years.
The brand just announced it’ll be releasing a value pack that will include ten full-size Beautyblender Pros for $125. Just to put this in perspective, the value pack will give you enough sponges to not only keep a few in your bathroom but also enough to stash in your bag and even some at your S.O.’s place (while still having extra sponges to replenish your supply when you run out).
And if you think that’s exciting, the good news doesn’t stop there. The all-black Beautyblender Pro Collection (which was originally created after people complained that the pink version was being permanently stained with makeup), will be expanding to include midnight shade versions of the oil-blotting Blotterazzi pads, MicroMini sponges (one of our top 13 must-haves for women with oily skin) and the cat-eye-helper Liner Designer tool. Yeah, we’ll be buying all of that.
Unfortunately you’ll have to wait until July to snag these launches at Sephora, but until then, take some time to brush up on what exactly each makeup sponge shape is meant to do—and the biggest mistakes you’re making with them.
