There are a lot of options when it comes to what to buy. When it comes to beauty, beauty blenders offer a wide range of products which can make your skin look beautiful. And in the past, I have recommended the best beauty blender for you. But I don’t recommend that anymore because there are so many different types of beauty blenders out there now and there is no one that is better than the other.
This post aims at helping you choose your perfect beauty blender. Now we have narrowed down what type of products we would recommend for you and we are going to help you find yours too.
We will try our best to answer every single question that you might want to ask us in order to help you choose the right product for yourself!

The Beauty Blender
This is a question I get a lot.
It’s not that the people who ask it don’t already know (although some do), but it is that they are wary of spending money on products that have been around for years and have established themselves as “bestselling” and/or “top selling”. And at the same time, they want to be able to use their current products, which means keeping them forever. But these are very different things.
The beauty blender was an essential part of my teenage years (which might explain why it makes the list), mainly because it was cheap, didn’t take up much space and lasted forever. It was an ingenious way of smoothing out your skin without being too rough; unlike a regular razor, you didn’t cut yourself by passing straight over your skin, but instead used the power of centrifugal force to gently rub out any unwanted hair or lumps. I also loved how easy it was to apply: just slap it on wet or dry face and leave it on while you shower or in the morning before you shave (and then wash off). It lived up to its promise of being inexpensive and lasting long enough for you to use all those times when you needed a quick fix but were too lazy/too old/too tired to do anything else.
Then I grew older and had kids with expensive haircuts and ladies with perfectly coiffed hair who used expensive hair straighteners each morning… so I started cutting back on my beauty blender habit. Eventually it went away completely. Nowadays most people are lucky if they can find something that works well enough in terms of smoothness, durability and price (I have friends who still own their original beauty blenders from 5 years ago).
I think this is one reason why so many people buy into the idea that “skin care is all about getting rid of wrinkles” – there is a tonne of marketing around this concept which defines wrinkle-free skin as “easy care” – but actually most products aren’t an answer at all: they are just trying to sell more products at higher prices…
When we look at our own personal experiences in taking care of ourselves through simple tools like moisturizers, we see that what works well for us isn’t always what will work well for others; we need protection from sun damage but may find that benzoyl peroxide is not suitable for us given
Financially, and thus a lot more important than aesthetics — the whole point of beauty is to be able to buy what you want, when you want it. Beauty blenders are a great example of this:
They are so cheap that they are basically disposable. If you want one for your bathroom or kitchen, you can buy one and throw it away in the garbage after 10 minutes of use. The same goes for your friends…
But is this really what we want? What if we were meant to have something that better captured our desires? What if we could have a piece that would give us exactly what we wanted, but in a way that was cheaper than by-product (not just cost-effectiveness, but also cost-reductiveness)?
You may think buying an expensive blender would get rid of the taste of coffee grounds in your latte. It’s true. But as far as I know coffee tastes much better without grounds than with them — and there’s no reason why it shouldn’t either! If coffee tastes good without grounds, how can coffee taste bad with them? If coffee tastes good without grounds, why do people think it needs grounds at all?
The same goes for beauty products. Are products like this worth having? Is it worth spending time and money on products that don’t serve any purpose beyond their aesthetic appeal or convenience (which is probably pretty much everything they do)? I don’t know whether my hair is worth having if I spent $120 on shampoo each time I wash it — or even $10 every time I shampooed. Even if my hair looks great when I wear it up in a ponytail, it doesn’t mean the effort has been worthwhile (I end up washing my hair every day because my head doesn’t look great when I don’t). Hair is an emotional state; the experience of using certain products is not going to be the same as using them.
So beauty blenders aren’t about looking pretty; they are about buying things that make you feel good about yourself (and maybe to some extent about how you smell). And even then, how does that translate into dollars and cents? Do these blenders really make me feel better about myself? How many personal growth lessons do these blenders teach me about myself ? After all, isn’t that exactly what “beauty blenders” are supposed to do
As we’ve noticed, the best way out of the trap of product-market fit is to get to product-market fit. Once you get there, the next step is to build a product that has real value. We couldn’t have done this without our partner, Google.
Have you noticed how many indie developers create a website long before the public release of their app and offer to notify you when it becomes available? This is no coincidence. Having little to no traction on launch day can profoundly affect future engagement, especially if you are dependent on a third party distribution channel such as Apple’s App Store (that uses engagement as one of the parameters to determine which apps it suggests to users). Developers send out mailers on launch day to all those who signed up, in the hope to have a high volume of downloads on day one, and ideally in the first hour itself.
The above is just one way of doing it. Other methods of generating traction include: beta programs (which is a great way to test your product as well as build a user base before launch); video or live product unveils (a common practice with established enterprises who give product sneak peeks months in advance); and more recently (but hard to do well), the method of creating viral campaigns on social media to hype the product.
But whatever method you choose, you should strongly consider some form of paid promotion to supplement it (and accordingly budget for it in advance). Paid doesn’t necessarily mean print or online ads, it can also be sponsored reviews. The YouTube channel MacRumours often does sponsored reviews. They clearly title them as such and are generally neutral in their descriptions. This and other kinds of promotions get your product the attention it organically may not receive; and if done wisely can bright great ROI.

Text: A couple years ago I wrote an article for MacRumors describing how we were going from $23/month revenue per customer — from $8 million customers — down into $2 million per customer ($3/month) over two years – all while dropping our sales team from 30+ people down into just four people . We had been working with our sales organization for several years trying different things around growing revenues using different tools until finally we decided that an internal tool was probably not going
