I seem to always have a problem with getting foundation or concealer all over my paper at Uni. This is where the Beauty Bullet like blender comes in handy.
I am sure many of you have seen the famous Makeup Bullet on 27Pinkx which retails for R300.00. This Beauty Bullet is based on the same concept. Just as the beauty blender has a number of dupes by Dischem, Cala, Claires and so on, so does the makeup bullet.
The bullet that I have been testing out is from Pout Makeup SA, whom I have mentioned in the past as being a Durban based makeup and makeup tools distributor. You can find her account on Instagram if you want to see what products she has available and whether she is able to courier it to you.
When I first received this bullet I was quite uncertain about it. I already had a beauty blender so I didn't see what made this so special. I tend to use my ring finger to blend my concealer around my eyes but as I mentioned before, I usually end up leaving concealer stains throughout my notes. I decided to finally give the beauty bullet a try and I must admit that it wasn't too shabby for a dupe product. The pointed tip made it easier to blend the concealer that was near my inner corners. The sponge is very soft to ensure that it doesn't damage the thin layer of skin that is around your eye area. Since it fits over your finger you are able to have full control on how much of pressure you wish to apply when blending your makeup. It slips off easily and can be rewashed just like your beauty blender and can be reused thereafter.
If you like to have a separate tool for your eye area or your concealer and a separate took for the rest of your face and your foundation then I think this tool is not too bad to have as an option for your concealer. I generally don't like using a concealer brush because I feel that it gives off a very streaky look around your eye area so a sponge might work better.
The Beauty Bullet retails for R69.00 from Pout_MakeupSA. You can pick between a black bullet or a pink bullet. Please note that this is not the original Makeup Bullet, this is a dupe for it hence the difference in price. Honestly, I think this product works well for the price compared to the R300.00 tag attached to the Makeup Bullet.
