BlendUp is the makeup brush you’ve been missing in your life. Magnitone have smashed it so far out of the park with this one. I’ve been testing this out for a few weeks now and it’s fair to say that it has the Bunny seal of approval.
WHAT IS BLENDUP?
Ok, so BlendUp is the foundation brush of dreams. It is a Vibra-Sonic blending brush that blends your foundation like it’s never been blended before. You’ll look and feel like a makeup artist has airbrushed your foundation onto your face.
Magnitone have worked with celeb MUA Paul Herrington to develop this wonder brush and I have to say it’s a job well done. Sometimes, no matter how well you think you’ve blended your foundation, there can be streaks or a tide mark. With BlendUp, this is no longer an issue.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The brush glides over your skin with over 250 Vibra-Sonic movements per second to blend your foundation and give you a natural, air-brushed finish. It’s so quick and easy to use and you’ll be amazed at just how well it blends.
Your skin looks and feels healthier and there’s no streaks, clumps, clogged pores or tell-tale tide marks. You really do have the most beautiful airbrushed effect to your skin. I’ve tested it with a wide range of foundations, from sheer to full coverage, and it works amazingly with all of them. When you use the brush, you don’t seem to need as much product as the brush distributes the product evenly across the face.
WHAT CAN WE USE IT WITH?
BlendUp can be used with both liquid and powder products, from BB and CC creams, tinted moisturisers, liquid foundations, powder foundations and concealer.
The brush comes with the SmoothBLEND brush head which is described as a ‘versatile superstar’, but there are other heads available. You can get the FeatherBLEND to stipple and diffuse your makeup, and the BuffBLEND if your prefer to buff up the volume. Replacement brush heads are £20.00 each, which when you consider the brush itself is £70.00 does make your purse cry a little.
Whilst there’s no denying that this is not a cheap way to blend in your foundation, it is worth it. Seriously, my base has never looked so good.
Each brush has BioMaster antibacterial protection. This inhibits the growth of microbes and bacteria by almost 100%. This protection helps to prevent cross contamination and unwanted breakouts.
I really like this feature as the last thing we want is for our pores to become clogged up and for those dreaded breakouts to appear. Cleaning the brush is super simple too as it has it’s own self-cleaning mode, so you don’t need to worry about it getting dirty.
There’s a choice of a black brush and a white brush and they charge up via USB in just 2 hours. Since I received mine, I’ve not even touched any of my other foundation brushes. I’ve been using it to prime as well as applying my foundation and my base has been flawless each day.
BlendUp is available from Magnitone.
