While in London visiting my parents I got my very first Mac product! I'm so excited about this! While browsing in Selfridges with my Mam I came across a product that looked very like the Beauty Blender sponge. I have been lusting after a Beauty Blender ever since I seen it on The Make-up Chair.
My lovely mother insisted on buying it for me. She asked the sales assistant how much it was and she replied '£3 or £4'. I was shocked and told my Mam there was no way that it would be that price, more like £15! My Mam said she would get it anyway and went up and paid for it. It turned out it was £15. I don't know how a sales assistant was so far off the price. I guessed the correct price and I have never even bought any Mac products before!

The sponge itself is called MAC Pro Performance Sponge. It is small and pink with one rounded end and one pointed end. The odd shape is designed to give precise application and blending of liquid or cream formulas in hard-to-reach areas of the face. It is also latex free. I have been using this sponge for two weeks now and I'm really impressed with it. Usually I'm a apply foundation with fingers kind of girl as I hate foundation brushes. This product has changed that though. I find it so easy to use and it blends so well. It is a firm sponge that 'bounces' off your skin and buffs the foundation into the skin.
The only negative thing about the sponge is that it stains easily. I have only had it two weeks and the vibrancy of the pink has already faded. It also has a few foundation stains on it that despite washing you can still see. However, this would not bother me at all as I'm so in love with the product and would really recommend it to those who want an alternative to foundation brushes.
