Dior Backstage Blender





If there is one thing I haven't quite got the hang of, it's beauty blenders. So many people rave about them and swear by them to apply their flawless make up but I seem to just be a bit rubbish at using one. I've tried Beauty Blenders, Real Techniques and most recently the Dior Backstage Blender which retails at a pretty decent £12, or at least I think so. Dior could've quite easily priced this higher.

I have tried and failed with this numerous times. The sponge itself is of a much better material than it's competition and it doesn't soak up the product instantly. It even washes well! I was told by the make up artist at Dior that this can just be chucked in with your washing and because I hated it that much I was hoping she was wrong and it would just fall apart. Seems I was the one in the wrong. 

I have found the Backstage Blender pretty useful for dabbing away excess liquid foundation and helping my concealer set better under my eyes but other than that I just can't get on with it. If anyone has any tips or youtube videos on using a sponge please point me the right direction. I want this to work for me so much. 

Have you used the Dior Backstage Blender before? What did you think of it?

  1. Hi, This is the first sponge I have used and I love it! I did find it difficult to clean but I will put it in the washing machine tonight thanks for the tip, not as soft as the beauty blender, I do have one of these but it has remained in the packaging for months.

    1. Try the washing machine and lemme know how you get on. I went with that as the girl was so adamant that it works aha. It's definitely 'rougher' then a beauty blender, I agree xx

  4. I am completely agreeing with you here. I prefer my brushes, they're just easy for me to use. I feel like sponges are more time consuming and soak up alot of the product. Shame you didn't get on so well with this item either. I'm very surprised at the price of this! But at the end of the day, it's literally just a sponge so it shouldn't be priced too highly. Great, honest review :)
