Question
Does this absorb less makeup than other sponges
One of the reasons I switched from my regular ole disposable makeup sponge to a foundation brush was the huge waste of foundation when you use a sponge. Does this sponge absorb/waste less foundation than a regular makeup sponge? Does wetting the sponge help minimize wasted foundation in any way?

You are recommended to wet the BB before using it. Doing this, the sponge has soaked up liquid leaving more of your product to blend.

If you wet the sponge, the water fills the pores of the sponge, thus not allowing excess product to be absorbed. Absolutely no product is wasted with the Beauty Blender :)

The beauty blender absorbs way less foundation than other sponges would. All you have to do is fully wet it so it fills up with water and then squeeze it so it just feels a little damp, then I usually wipe it a little with a towel so that there's no excess water there. Hope that helped!

Here's what I do: I dab my foundation onto my whole face with a finger and then use the sponge to pat/stipple/blend it out. I haven't been pouring foundation on the sponge or even dipping the sponge into the foundation. (I have put a dab on the tip of the sponge to use around my nose.) I sure hope that helps. Have fun playing!

Question
Does this work with tinted moisturizer?
I use Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and I am wondering if this product might absorb my makeup since the coverage is already pretty sheer? I usually just apply with my fingers, but I'd like to try the sponge to avoid shine and create a natural finish.

It's a sponge so it will absorb a little of your makeup. I use Giorgio Armani foundation, which is very liquid, but it works amazing. I used to apply it with my fingers too, but I find the sponge to be easier and quicker.

I would suggest running it under water before popping on the TM. I also use it with my Laura Mercier TM, and it works beautifully. I think wetting it allows it to blend better and also absorb less product. I think you could also "build up" the coverage of the TM with a few small layers with this sponge-and still have a very natural finish.

I use the beauty blender as instructed to apply tinted moisturizer and I have not noticed it eating up the product to the point that I cannot see any on my face so I would say go ahead and try it with your tinted moisturizer, works for me.

I haven't tried it with a tinted moisturizer but I'd recommend wetting the sponge before you dip it into the tinted moisturizer so that it will absorb less.

I use Laura Mercier too, and yes, it works with the beautyblender. I make sure the sponge is damp, put a bit of tinted moisturizer on it, then press it into my skin. The finish is a lot nicer than with a brush or fingers.

If you purchase the two pack of beauty blenders then you will receive two full size beauty blenders. I purchased the two pack for the same reason you stated (price). I kept one for myself and I gave the second to my mother. My mother hasn't really gotten into adding an extra step to her makeup routine, but I love this product! I use it every time I apply foundation, so I highly recommend it.

Packaging
I managed to find the beautyblender in store but the packaging is a lot tighter than what I've seen online. The plastic box is just big enough to fit the dry version of the sponge, there is no plastic pedestal or insert saying how to use it. Is this normal?

I ordered my Beauty Blender from Sephora.com and it came in what sounds like the same packaging. When dry, the sponge fits neatly into the little plastic tube, but when it's wet, it sits atop the tube to air dry.

I think it's normal ;)

answer 2
The plastic box becomes the pedestal -- I'm not sure about the instructions, though!

Once you've washed your sponge and it no longer fits in the container, place the container open-side up and rest the sponge on it's base. It's like placing an apple on top of a glass of water -- it won't fall into the container but it won't fall off either.
This will allow the sponge to air dry; if the bottom of the sponge (resting on the container) is still wet after the rest of the sponge has dried, rotate the sponge upside-down to let the base of the sponge dry.

I have noticed that too. I did end up buying one and it had the instructions in it. And the small packaging works awesomely. Because since it grows, after your done using it the sponge is huge and you just sit it on the top of the container and when it is drying it gets smaller and finally drops back into the container on its own.

SO easy to use....Just get it wet and I mean really run it under water until it doubles in size....SQUEEZE all the excess water out of it...so the blender is just kinda damp. Put some foundation on your hand (thats how I like to pick it up gives you more control...you can also dab it on your face if you prefer). Then just dab the wide end over your face kind of just pressing your foundation in until it blends out...you can also use a rolling motion BUT i find the sponge kinda absorbs more of your product and I like to keep as much product to use instead of wash down the sink. You can use the pointed end for getting in under your eyes or anywhere it is hard to really get and just roll it.

Before using, just run it under running water and then ring out all the water. The sponge will expand a little. Then just dab your foundation on your face and bounce the beautyblender on your face to blend and buff your foundation. Whala. That's all there is too it.

Soak sponge in water and then squeeze out excess water. Put liquid foundation (or TM, BB Cream, etc) on the larger end and tap the sponge all over your face/neck.Use the skinny end for hard to reach places, like sides of nose or to apply concealer. It's that easy!

The Beauty Blender works well with all types of foundation!
For best results, make sure you wet it and let it expand before use, but do not use it soaking wet... I like to sueeze mine out, and then squeeze it in a towel once before I use it (that way it's not too wet, and it doesn't just "wash" off your foundation).

After cleaning, I leave it to sit, pointy side down, in the plastic container. Because it is still expanded and doesn't fit back in, I feel that it dries more quickly and has air circulation. When it's shrunk back to its original size and feels dry, I put it back in the container, pointy side up.
