When it comes to makeup application I’m pretty stuck in my ways; I know that brushes aren’t really for me when I’m applying my base products and with my heart having been stolen by the Beauty Blender there hasn’t really been much room to wiggle for anyone else. I love experimenting with new products and new technologies with my makeup application though and when I received a surprise package from Magnitone with their latest product launch a few weeks ago I was extremely excited to see a vibrating makeup brush in the form of Blend Up! inside. In all honesty, I could laugh at how ridiculous that sounds but hey, don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!
The Vibra-Sonic technology in the new Blend Up! Vibrating makeup brush from Magnitone gives the perfect flawless application of your base products; As it can be used for foundation, concealer, contour or powders, it’s a bit of an all round product and is really malleable for whatever requirement you have. Infused with an antibacterial shield called Biomaster® your Blend Up brush also prevents cross-contamination which helps reduce breakouts – definitely an added bonus! Personally, as I am so in love with my beauty sponges for my foundation, I’ve been using this solely for my cream contour but as far as it’s foundation application goes, it’s got it pretty spot on. When used on the first of its two blend settings the Blend Up! brush works to seamlessly blend your foundation into your skin giving a natural appearance with no streaks or patchiness and stimulates the skin whilst not clogging your pores. It definitely stomps all over the traditional makeup brush with it’s quick and easy blending and although I prefer a quick dab over with my Beauty Blender for every day use, for a more precise and perfect blend I really love using this now (and especially for an event or night out).
The second vibration setting is for blending things like your contour which I have to say is my favourite setting and the one that I use on a daily basis now. Using my Fenty Beauty Match Stix I apply my cream contour straight to my skin and then using the Blend Up! in a ‘back and forth’ motion I blend it out perfectly. It’s honestly the best finish I’ve ever had on my contour and it gives my face such a natural and airbrushed look. It’s also made application super quick; there’s no precision needed with this as it blends so well and with the speed of the brush it completely cuts down the time it takes me to create the perfect contour.
I know what you’re thinking now though; ‘Yes Beky, it sounds a dream – but how easy is it to wash?’. God, we all know how much of a chore it is to actually make the time (and effort) to wash our makeup brushes and I have to admit that I haven’t even washed my brushes since before Madison was born however cleaning your Blend Up! brush is also something that Magnitone have got totally under control. With our lazy bums in their minds when they designed this amazing brush, the Blend Up! is not only super easy to clean but also automatic! This revolutionary brush has a built-in vibration cleaning mode for just the job and by holding in the button for three seconds the brush turns on the vibration for cleaning. With a little Baby Shampoo on your hand / a brush cleaning mat all you have to do is rinse the head lightly under cold water and the brush does the rest itself. It’s a feature of the Blend Up! that I absolutely love as it’s made washing so much easier and way more convenient!
The Blend Up! Really has ‘revolutionised’ the way I now do my makeup and I’d highly recommend it to any beauty lover. It’s not the most affordable at £70 but if you’re looking to invest in something to enhance your makeup application then it’s definitely the product for you!
