Is it worth it? Let me work it. (Okay, I’ll stop). But, in all seriousness, the micro mini beautyblender just launched and for $17.95 you get two little beauty sponges whereas for $19.95 you get one original size beautyblender. So, are the new beautyblenders worth investing in?
Sometimes reaching the smaller crevices on your face can be difficult. The original beauty blender is pretty large once it is damp so reaching areas like under the eyes and around the nose can be hard. Thus, Beautyblender came out with these micro mini beauty blenders. Their original beauty sponge is very loved in the beauty community and I totally understand why. So when I saw that they came out with these mini ones I knew I had to try them out.
The Good | These are really small so you are able to reach some hard to reach areas on your face like under your eyes, between the brows, and around the nose. It also helps around the lips when you want to fix any smudges from your lipstick. I like to apply my lipstick and then clean up the edges so it is sharp and neat, and the original beauty blender is too big for that. This one blends out any concealer around the lips nicely without ruining your lipstick.
The Bad | Since it is so small, it is a little hard to grasp in your hands. I have dropped it a few times while doing my makeup, which is a little annoying. You also have to bounce the beauty blender under your eyes quite a bit in order to blend out any concealer since it is so small. The original beauty blender blends out concealer quickly since it is so big. Thus, I do wish these micro mini beauty blenders were slightly bigger so it would be easier to work with.
The Verdict | Some people might think this is gimmicky, but in my opinion it does come in handy for some things. It does get a little bit bigger when damp like the original beauty blender, but it is still really tiny, which can make it hard to use. This probably wouldn’t be a problem if you have small hands since it won’t slip out of your grasp as easily. If you have the original beauty blender I wouldn’t say you absolutely need these in your collection. However, if you are a blending fiend like me and are always on the hunt for finding new and better ways to blend your makeup then these are worth trying out.
