If you love a beauty gimmick, the new I Heart Revolution Fruity Makeup Blending Sponges is for you. I’ve tried quite a few different Revolution beauty sponges, but they’ve not been great. The foam they use is always super dense, and whenever you wet them they feel like a wet rock bouncing on the skin, and they don’t grow when wet either.
The photos of the I Heart Revolution Fruity Makeup Blending Sponges make me think they’re perhaps used with different foam, as they don’t look half as dense and hard, as the rest of the Revolution beauty sponges.
I Heart Revolution Fruity Makeup Blending Sponges
Make applying your makeup more fun, with a cute pineapple and strawberry shaped beauty sponges. The cute pineapple is rounded at the end making it perfect for dabbing and blending moisturiser and foundation. Use the sassy pointed strawberry to apply concealer and contour with cream or powder bronzers.
The I Heart Revolution Fruity Makeup Blending Sponges are £6 and come in a little set of two, with one sponge being the shape of a pineapple and one being the shape of a strawberry. Both of the sponges have a texture of the fruits cut into the sponge, and have green ‘leaves’ foam at the top of the sponges.
I do wonder whether the texture that’s been cut into the sponges will actually cause a weakness in the sponge, as beauty sponges are notorious for getting rips. So like the pineapple sponge in the I Heart Revolution Fruity Makeup Blending Sponges has a criss cross texture cut into it, so I imagine those parts of the sponge will be where tears will form.
Plus the leaves look as if they’ve been glued onto the sponge, so when you’re washing your sponges with brush or sponge cleanser, they could perhaps fall off. I think they’re probably more of a gimmick than a good quality sponge set, and personally I would prefer to spend £6 on one Real Techniques sponge, but they are very cute.
