The famous pink makeup tool has a brand new look, and we got to check it out exclusively before anyone else.
When thinking about Beautyblender, most people think of its signature hot pink egg. However, the beauty brand has released countless limited-editions of its iconic sponge. Over the years, you could find the squishy makeup tool in neutral hues, color-shifting varieties, and even a groovy tie-dyed edition. And that’s just the shortlist. The latest addition to the Beautyblender lineup is all about astrology. Allow us to introduce you to the new Beautyblender Zodiac collection.
As a beauty editor, my makeup routine changes more often than Kylie Jenner switches her hair, but a few products are forever staples in my makeup bag, like a Beautyblender. I have always sworn by the infamous sponge since I was about 16 years old and started wearing makeup, and it has never let me down. When I first found out a Zodiac version of it is on its way, I was ecstatic. As a Libra, I love not only love pretty things, but I also love pretty things that are as personalized as they can get. They just feel more special, you know?
The material of the Beautyblender Zodiac itself is no different than the original. Both are composed of the same water-activated, skin-mimicking material that perfectly pairs with foundations, BB creams, powders, and concealers. You can wield it the same way, too: just wet it, squeeze it, and blend product onto your face like a dream. The only difference is the new horoscope-inspired sponge comes in 12 different versions. Each is engraved with a symbol for a star sign. ADVERTISEMENT
“I have a had a life-long obsession with astrology,” Rea Ann Silva, the founder of Beautyblender, exclusively tells Allure of her inspiration for the new collection. “I am a faithful reader of Susan Miller’s horoscopes. It’s a fun, light way to share entertainment and coincidences between people with the same signs.”
Silva created these 12 Zodiac Beautyblenders because they’re great personalized gifts that only require knowing the receiver’s birthday. With the holidays coming up, I see this as the perfect stocking stuffer for any makeup lover or astrology enthusiast.
Starting December 1, the Beautyblender Zodiac is available for $20 (the same cost as a signature sponge) on sephora.com. Oh, and if you’re really into birth charts, keep an eye out for a special bundle to come in January that’s $150 for 13 blenders ($260 value), but we’ll share more on that when the time comes but for a sneak peek, see below:
