Does color matter? Comparison of Beauty Blender sponges

I have always used the traditional pink Beauty Blender sponge. Later other colors began to appear - nude, black, red, white, purple ... I have honestly got lost in all these colors, so I had to look at Beauty Blender's website. And it was a mistake, because I saw a beautiful powder pink sponge. I already know which one I will buy now - Beauty Blender Bubble.

It may seem that it's just a marketing gimmick with these colors - just like with the new gadgets offered by Beauty blender (a triangle for painting lines, sponge to collect excess sebum or sponge for applying foundation to the body).
Once I bought a red carpet (red carpet) and by the way I felt the difference. Red carpet has a slightly different texture than the pink sponge. I remember this version the worst because I have the impression that when applying BB cream the effect was much more 'artificial'. In this case, the pink sponge beats the Red Carpet version.
After the red fire I decided on a black sponge, which is called the PRO version. Are you curious if this sponge is different from the traditional, pink version? If so, keep reading.

Why use a Beauty Blender sponge?

BB sponge is my big hit for years. I not only use it for everyday makeup, but also accompanied me on my wedding day.
The Beauty Blender egg causes the BB cream applied with it to blend perfectly with the skin. An unnatural effect can be obtained only if it overdo the amount of product applied. As a fan of the natural effect and not feeling anything on the skin, I decided to use a sponge. I've been using it regularly since 2014.

Black or pink? Which Beauty Blender sponge should you choose?

I have read several times that, however, sponges vary depending on the color. At first I thought it was a marketing gimmick. However, as it turned out, this is not the case at all.
At the beginning I used only a pink sponge, because only that was available then. Over time, other colors began to appear, which began to tempt. First of all, to check if they differ from each other. As I wrote at the beginning of the note - there was a pink, red carpet and black version. Now there will definitely be a Bubble version in a beautiful, pastel pink color.
The pink classic version was with me the most. It was also the first sponge I tested. It worked great and it was her that made me fall in love with Beauty Blender products. Forgive me if this post is luscious, but Beauty Blender is one of the few products that impresses me.

Once by accident, the red carpet version was added to the basket. It's very similar to the traditional version, but unfortunately it looks worse. It has a different (softer) texture, which gives me the impression that BB cream does not blend so well with the skin. I did not like this version and I will definitely not return to it.
Then came the black sponge (PRO version), which tempted me mainly with its color. Interestingly, the color from a black egg is not washed out as quickly as e.g. from pink. This is a big plus for me, because I use one sponge for half a year (no, as the producer 3 says for months). I have already written about it in other posts about the sponge, but I will repeat it again - the sponge does not lose its properties and works properly even for half a year. With proper hygiene, nothing happens to her. No worms also breed.

The black sponge is also slightly different to the touch than the pink version. It is more 'rough' and I have the impression that it has deeper pores. However, this difference is not felt when applying BB cream (I have always used the same one BB cream Dr G). I don't know why the black sponge is called the PRO version, it's probably a pure marketing ploy.

Does the color of the Beauty blender sponge matter?

I thought for a long time about the answer to this question, because on the one hand the black and pink versions are actually the same, but on the other they differ slightly in texture. But the red carpet version is in my opinion a total misfire and I will definitely never go back to it.
Comparing these 3 color versions I definitely recommend the pink and black version. However, I recommend avoiding the red carpet version.

    Great post! I've been lurking on a beauty blender for a long time. However, recently I got a makeup sponge from Annabelle Minerals and a few other makeup accessories from this brand and I am pleasantly surprised. It's been a long time since I was able to apply foundation so quickly.

      I didn't know that AM has makeup accessories 🙂 For me, Beauty Blender has been a huge hit for years - when the sponge is used up, I buy another one. I tried to apply BB cream with a brush, but it's not the same.

    I was convinced that the color did not affect the finish. Good to know 😀

      I didn't know either. Until I tested it on my own skin and wallet 😛

    I love the beauty blender. A lot of people say that cheaper sponges are just as good, but I used a few and always after one and a half - two months began to mold, I don't know why! Now I have black bb, 2 months and it looks almost like new (maybe a little grayer than black), I will never go back to other sponges. All in all, I was always interested in how black differs from pink, and here it turns out that both are equally good!

      I also have similar experiences with cheaper sponges. It wasn't true that they didn't mold, which just didn't work out completely.

      Avoid only Red Carpet, in my opinion this version is much worse than the others.

    I have never had the original beuaty blender sponge :). I had the opportunity to test 2 fakes, but somehow they did not impress me 🙂

      I'm not surprised. I tested Blend it. For me, there is no comparison with Beauty Blender. There is a colossal difference between these sponges.

    I love these sponges. But one thing is the color (and actually the structure) and the other is the speed of soiling. Because, however, I noticed that although I regularly clean my sponges, this black is in a better condition than pink.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 6 March 2017 / 06: 28

      For me, both colors worked great. What do you wash the sponges with?

  6. Avatar Lynx Celebrity 27 February 2017 / 08: 25

    Recently I was thinking about whether to finally buy a glorious sponge. After your entry, I have no other choice?

  7. Avatar Katarzynatuitam 26 February 2017 / 15: 10

    I have one of the pink bb's and I didn't want to experiment with colors, because why? Dobrze But it's good to know not to choose the red one, I will remember!

  8. Avatar Kamil 26 February 2017 / 10: 38

    Definitely pink 😉

  9. Avatar Judith 26 February 2017 / 08: 58

    I used to think that every sponge is the same and the shape doesn't matter.
    I have learned the hard way that the difference is and is sometimes huge 😉

    Ooo powdered pink heh, so I have to see 😉 I haven't used Beauty Blender yet, but I also have to buy 😉

  11. Avatar ka me 23 February 2017 / 11: 48

    In my life I wouldn't think that colors matter, I don't use sponges for now.

  12. Avatar Natasha 23 February 2017 / 11: 04

    I have to finally buy Beauty Blender. He will probably opt for the pink color. 🙂

  13. Avatar Ada - Glow Up 23 February 2017 / 10: 24

    I never thought about colors 🙂 I used to get black and use it. And if I had to buy, I would probably bet on this color (I do not like pink).

  14. Avatar Just Visage 22 February 2017 / 16: 59

    I also love BB 🙂 I have pink, purple and mini greens - I love them all :)

  15. Avatar Wiola Skawińska 22 February 2017 / 15: 39

    I have seen these sponges everywhere, until I think I must finally buy one 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 22 February 2017 / 17: 02

      Beauty Blender is great. I do not recommend cheaper substitutes, it is not worth it.

  16. Avatar Gizanka 22 February 2017 / 14: 33

    Mother, I am not at the right time because I have never used this miracle.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 22 February 2017 / 15: 15

      You have to make up for it, because these sponges are great 🙂

  17. Avatar soap bubble 21 February 2017 / 19: 42

    I totally wouldn't expect the color of the sponge to matter ... I've never had the original BB, you used cheaper substitutes - do you see the difference between such sponges?

    • Avatar [Email protected] 22 February 2017 / 08: 10

      Yes, even on the right side there is a comparison between Blend it and Beauty Blender sponge in popular posts 😉 click

      To be honest, I won't test others anymore, because Beauty Blender is perfect for me 🙂
