How to apply the products with the ColourPop Blending Sponges?
All of the ColourPop sponges included within the Full Beat Blending Sponge Kit should be wet with water or setting spray before applying any product. However, do not apply the product directly to each sponge.
For the best application, dab foundation or concealer directly on the face and then use each sponge to blend. Alternatively, apply the product to the back of your hand and then apply.
The Silicone and Velvet Blending Sponges best apply full coverage or cream-based products. In fact, complexion products with thin consistencies do not apply as well with these two sponges.
Where is the ColourPop Full Beat Blending Kitsold?
The ColourPop Full Beat Blending Kit is exclusive to the ColourPop website. Unfortunately, the kit is no longer for sale on the ColourPop site. However, each sponge can still be purchased individually.
Final Thoughts on the ColourPop Full Beat Blending Sponge Kit
Overall, I enjoyed the ColourPop Full Beat Blending Sponge Kit. Each sponge is soft, flexible, and easy to use when applying complexion products.
Detail Blending Sponge: Without a doubt, the Detail Blending Sponge is the best sponge within the kit for applying concealer and foundation.
Complexion & Hourglass Blending Sponges: The performance of the Complexion and Hourglass Blending Sponges is on par with other known beauty sponges from brands such as Beauty Blender, realTechniques, or ecoTools.
Silicone Blending Sponge: The Silicone Blending Sponge worked well at applying a full coverage foundation with thick consistencies. Also, the silicone core helped to maximize coverage with minimal wasted product.
Velvet Blending Sponge:Although I can appreciate that the Velvet Sponge soaks up less product, this sponge is gimmicky. This sponge does not apply liquid products as effortlessly. When using this sponge, my complexion products always looked heavy. Moreover, the product sat on my skin and ‘looked like makeup.’
Except for the Velvet Blending Sponge, the ColourPop Blending Sponges performed on par with the blending sponges and applicators created by other prominent makers of beauty sponges. These sponges are an affordable applicator option!
