The Original Beauty Blender – To DUPE or not to DUPE? Storing it and cleaning it!

Hiya loves, So today we’re chatting about a very grey area in the beauty community. Why use a beauty sponge? Does it need to be an original beauty blender? Do cheaper ones work the same? Why is it so expensive? What are your options? I’m here to give you my honest opinion on the matter. You might not like it but I’ve tried enough ‘dupes’ to compare.

July Favourites

I already feel like there isn’t enough hours in a day to get stuff done and now not enough days in a year. It feels like everyday is such a rush and we don’t properly get to enjoy what’s happening around us. I feel in some way this blog grounds me.
