I’ve been using Maybelline products ever since I can remember. Their effective yet affordable Fit Me Concealer is a staple in my makeup routine, while I’m pretty sure that their long-lasting drama gel eyeliner was the first eyeliner I ever purchased. Don’t even get me started on their Baby Lips Lip Balm! That’s been my go-to product for a shot of hydration and colour for about 4 years now.

A feature in pretty much everyone’s makeup bag, it’s no surprise that Maybelline is the number one global cosmetics brand.

That’s why we’re so pleased to introduce you Glossies to the Maybelline Dream Velvet Beauty Blender.

The New Precision Beauty Blender

Unlike other beauty blenders, this next-generation, latex-free one boasts a cone-shaped head that sits on top of a built-in handle. While you can use the long side to blend your foundation across your cheeks and forehead, it’s the tapered tip that really sells it for me.

The pointed end makes blending foundation and concealer in hard-to-reach areas effortless, creating a smooth and non-streaky finish.

What I Loved About The Dream Velvet Beauty Blender

If you usually use brushes, you’re probably wondering why you should make the switch. Maybe this will convince you…

  • The convenient handle means you don’t get messy fingers covered in foundation. Game changer!
  • The short handle allows for a more controlled application.
  • The pointed tip is the perfect shape to glide under your eyes and around your eyebrows.

Your Questions Answered

Q: Should the blender be used wet or dry?

A: Unlike other beauty blenders, you don't need to wet this handy tool. Simply use as is.

Q: Should I apply the foundation to the back of my hand or straight onto your brush?

A: For a smooth finish, apply your foundation to the desired areas using your fingers, then blend it in with your new beauty tool.

Q: What is the best way to hold the brush?

A: Holding the brush towards the bottom end of the handle makes it easier to blend your foundation in hard-to-reach areas.

Q: Can I use it to apply concealer?

A: Another great little trick. This brush can be used to apply concealer under your eyes and around your nose.

Q: How do I clean the blender?

A: To make the blender look as good as new, clean it with warm soapy water, then wipe it on a flannel. Let it dry completely before using it again.
