Wowie, wow, wow, wow! Who would have thought a $4 T.J. Maxx find could work so well glamour babes. I know I was a bit of a skeptic at first, but for the price it was worth buying, I wanted to try this gadget for awhile now. I found the TruBeauty Flawless Face Foundation Applicator a few weeks back in a clearance bin, and was actually shocked to see the entire box intact with all of the accessories (I checked) including the battery. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming for a moment. It is a rarity to come by this at T.J. Maxx. For some odd reason people seem to love tearing packages open at these discount department stores, throwing the contents every where like they’re toddlers. I don’t get this behavior, it’s quite annoying and disrespectful towards others.
Okay, that’s enough venting for one day. Let’s talk about my awesome find!
I wanted to try the Color Me Foundation Applicator since forever, but the reviews were not exactly stellar, and I did not want to spend $54 on a foundation tool that was going to give me mediocre results. I could do a lot more with my money, like buy more makeup, lol.
The Flawless Finish Foundation Applicator is an innovative cosmetic tool that provides perfectly blended, long lasting makeup. 15,000 delicate vibrations per minute gently and hygienically apply liquid, cream, or powder foundations, creating a flawless airbrushed finish-replacing multiple brushes and fingertips in one tool. I still love my makeup brushes too. Those can never be replaced, no matter what new beauty tool or fad is out there. They will always have a place in my heart.
The applicator kit comes with two disposable application sponges that are latex free and hypoallergenic. A CR2032 battery is required, but was included as mentioned before. It’s a flat battery that most watches take.
Using this applicator is relatively easy. The sponges are interchangeable and are easily removable by gently popping the sponge head off. Coat the sponge with the desired amount of foundation-less for light, natural coverage or more for full coverage.
You get the gist, she’s simple to manipulate. Push the on button to power the applicator, gently sweep the applicator across the face to evenly distribute and blend your makeup. Boom! Your flawless in 5. You can use BB creams and CC creams too if foundation is not your thing. You’ll get the same payoff with less coverage. All mediums pan out beautifully and evenly in the end.When interchanging the sponges from liquid to powder foundation, the sponge wasn’t fluffy, and didn’t really do much of anything. I don’t think any powder adhered to my skin. I got the job done faster by using a powder brush. I honestly can’t complain though. I paid $4 for the entire kit. I’ll keep the second one as a backup for when I need to change the old sponge in 30 days.
Good thing I found another TruBeauty Foundation Applicator just the other day for the same price. Turns out my sister wanted one after telling her how much I loved it. Hopefully she likes pink, lol.You can get one at tjmaxx.com $5. Shipping and handling ($7.99) costs do apply unfortunately, but you’re still getting an extremely good deal on a beauty tool that will cost you $40 more at sephora, and will most likely do the same thing.
Now there’s something to chew on.
Stay beautiful! Xo.
