Can I Clean My Beauty Blender in the Microwave?

So there’s this trend going around where beauty gurus are putting their makeup sponges in a cup of soapy water and microwaving it for 1 minute to clean it. I’m here to put my beloved beauty blender on the line to prove if this works or not with a science experiment.

My First “Treat Yo Self” + Makeup Reviews! 

Hey friends,

Since I recently received my first paycheck, I decided to spoil myself a little because, well, I deserve it! And so do you- so here’s a little inspiration based off of what I did!

First stop: Dillard’s MAC counter


I bought:

MAC satin lipstick in the color “Spirit” | $17

 

MAC lip-liner in the color “Spice” | $16.50

 

MAC studio fix fluid foundation in the color “NC15” | $27

 

Reviews:

The reddish brown colors of Spirit and Spice go really well together! There is little color difference between them, so there are no harsh lines. This lipstick/lip-liner duo brings out my brown eyes and yellow undertones. The only bad thing is, they don’t stay on long. If you put it on before you eat you can forget about having it on the rest of the day.

  
The studio fix fluid foundation, “NC15”, gives very good coverage! I started breaking out on my forehead recently, but this foundation made them vanish. This is my second time buying, and not my last!

Second stop: Ulta

I bought:

Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil by Anastasia in the color “Medium Brown” | On sale for $12, originally $23

Stay Matte pressed powder by Rimmel London in the color “Sandstorm” | On sale for $4, originally $5

Instant Bronze Self Tanning Lotion by Australian Gold | On sale for $4, originally $8

The eyebrow pencil is good; I’m not sure if I would buy it again or not, but it looks more natural than my current eyebrow kit. I have bought Stay Matte several times now, so of course I love it. It really does have a matte appearance when applied and is relatively inexpensive compared to other matte powders. The self tanner I bought looks great on me! It gets streaky on my hands and feet, but that’s because those are common problem areas for self tanning. I will probably buy it again because I got a lot of product for a little amount of money, and it looks good on my body.

Happy Shopping!
