Tati is a Youtube star that I have been following for years. I discovered her during a late night nursing session with my youngest daughter, who is now three. I binge watched her channel so many times in the late night and early morning hours, and though I’m not nursing anymore, I still follow her occasionally. I love that she is glam and has so many great makeup tips and product recommendations. I skipped her Halo Beauty vitamins, haven’t gotten the Textured Neutrals palette yet, but when I saw the Blendiful I knew the time and price tag were both right to support Tati Beauty.
I’m the first to admit I rush through my makeup application. The first tip any makeup professional would give me is SLOW DOWN. I’m a mom on the move and I realistically have 5-10 minutes to do makeup. Unless I’m going to a special event I really don’t spend much time and I move fast. Currently I use L’BRI’s makeup sponge, which is a beauty blender knockoff that is cheaper and squishier and a little nicer than the OG. But given that the Blendiful was only $18 to get a regular and a baby size I really wanted to try it out and see if I would be a convert. I love the idea that I could apply all my products with just this one applicator.
The Blendiful is the makeup applicator you didn’t know you needed. This game changing soft textured fabric tool is a blending dream that’s designed to seamlessly apply & soften both liquid and powder products. The rounded edge & pointed tip help to provide a perfect blend step to step in your makeup application. Buff in foundation with little product waste, experience seamless contour, smoother concealer & the most airbrushed powder application… even in those hard to reach areas of the face. Save product, save time & become the expert artist of your own unique routine. However you choose to use the Blendiful, your look will be one with no harsh lines every time.
I have hope for my ability to use this better with practice. I love that there are both rounded and pointy edges. I was able to apply my foundation easily by patting it on. I had to remind myself not to drag it so I would have an even application and not streaks. I used the pointiest edge for foundation and it was able to work in the nooks and crannies of my face with ease. Next I went for the powder with one round edge and blush with the other. I found it to be fluffy, soft, and easy to use. I liked the way everything applied.
I think as with any new beauty tool you want to try, it’s going to be hard to get the hang of it. I definitely don’t think my makeup looked perfect after using this, but I have hope for the future. I don’t think my makeup was well blended on the first day of using it, but I think if I keep giving this a try it could have a chance to work great.
What I don’t like? I don’t like that unlike the beauty blender and my makeup brushes, which are all separate and not multi-use, I will have to wash this pretty much any time I want to use it. I also think the bigger Blendiful is big enough that it’s clumsy and awkward for me to use, at least at the moment. I’ll keep trying it! Practice makes perfect.
Whether I end up figuring it out and loving it, or it ends up being a fail for me, I like supporting a fellow creative online. I love watching Tati’s videos so I’m sure I’ll get more opportunities to see her using it in the future, and get some tips and tricks.
