Sephora Collection Precision Sponge + requested FOTD

How timely... earlier today I used the "it's a chicken and egg paradox" statement while discussing the relationship between our supply of citronella oil and the demand for it. :) Today I will share with you my two cents about Sephora collection Precision Sponge $12 which is a pasalubong I got from my ate's recent trip to Singapore.

What it is:A 3D makeup sponge inspired by professional makeup artists.
What it does:Sephora Brand Sephora Precision Sponge makes it easy to achieve complexion perfection. Apply foundation, concealer, and blush with this advanced, contoured tool; you can even layer different colors strategically without mixing. Use the rounded end of the sponge to cover large areas of the face and the pointed end to reach trickier spots and angles.What else you need to know:This latex-free, antibacterial essential is hypoallergenic.
K says, let's play! 

The great thing about Sephora Collection Precision Sponge is it's affordability. If you're one of those who already spent their buck on the Beauty Blender (which I believe is the mother of all these professional blending sponges); I'm sorry to say you missed out on the opportunity to save. If you haven't yet, and you're thinking of getting one, I would like to recommend this sponge instead. It's definitely more affordable without sacrificing performance.

Well... if you want extras, get these even if you have the blender na! :)

Another thing I love about Sephora Collection Precision Sponge is its claimtobe anti-bacterial. Because it's a sponge, it's really inevitable that it'd be quite challenging to wash. I wash mine using Safeguard liquid soap, so I'm more assured that its clean, fresh-smelling and free from germs and bacteria. However, I would have to say, depending on the make-up and brand used, washing it is a challenge. :) So far so good, no stains yet.

The cons about this product is its size. Unlike the Beauty Blender which increases in size when soaked, this sponge won't do that trick. It's some few cm smaller than the blender... but as the name suggests, if you want precision, then you can expect it from this sponge. 

See, the problem with using sponges is compared to brushes (especially detail brushes), you can't really expect much from a sponge. But with this professional sponge's size, you can! At first I didn't like how small it is thinking that it'd take me longer to blend my make-up... only to realize I was wrong. Its size makes it a major contender in the blending sponge division. :)

I also don't like the fact that it doesn't have a case. I think professional blending sponges should have a drying and storage case, similar to a brush guard... agree? :)

Look at how "bouncy" it is. It effectively blends liquid and cream-based make-up to an airbrushed finish. If you want flawless skin, you'd love this. If you love BB creams, this would definitely make your life easier!

I use it to blend my Garnier BB eye roll-on, using the "correct" side (the pointed side of the sponge).

I love using the "blend"/"apply" side, fat and founded base to blend and achieve a flawless complexion. I love using it along my hair line because other than blending, I also get to remove excess skin care and sun block stuck on my baby hairs :D

Fix fix fix

Check out what I achieved using the sponge :) Using Garnier BB eye roll-on and Clinique High Impact Colour Lipstick SPF 15 in Cider Berry.


Here's how it happened.

Clean face.

Figured I need to do some fixin'

Took out two shades of Mary Kay Liquid Foundation.

The shades...

Mixed the two shades to match my skin tone.

Achieved a perfect complexion dang I need to fix my brows but it just won't grow! :(

Applied concealer, used Nyx Concealer in a jar.

Applied eyelid primer (I didn't use my Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray eye primer to hold my concealer because with my sponge's capacity to blend, I'm confident I'd be crease-free all day.

Applied cream eyeshadow. Used Benefit Cream Shadow in Birthday Suit.

Check it out below :)

Because I wanted deeper shadows, I used a dark shimmery brown and mildly contoured my outer V. Used my friend Dindin's surprise, Bottega Verde eyeshadow in wow I checked my make-up stuff to check the name of the palette... and I can't find it hahaha! :(
Used the darkest brown. It's like a metallic dark brown with bronze glitter.
Then I experimented and used an eyebrow liner as an eye liner. I used Nichido liner in black. It was quite stiff to use for the eyes, haha, eh kasi it's for the brows. But worked, right?

I used it to define my lash line and water line.

Then I applied blush using Maybelline Creamy Cinnamon.

On my cheeks,,,

Then I applied the Cider Berry lipstick I blogged about previously. I actually forgot to put on mascara haha but I hope it worked well, think it did. :)

How about you? What haul satisfied you recently?

So... what's next from K?


Always smile! :)

  9. I am happy to know that the sponge works great! Beauty blender is really expensive so I guess this is a great alternative :)

  10. I've yet to try out any blending sponges. The Beauty Blender's price made me faint and the there's also the fact that I'm lazy and can't be bothered to wash the sponge after every use xD.
