Beautyblenders have taken over the beauty world by storm, appearing in just about every YouTube tutorial, makeup artist's kit, and bathroom makeup drawer. You would be hard pressed not to meet a makeup lover who hasn't, at the very least, tried one — and for good reason. The squishy sponge helps blend your foundation and concealer almost flawlessly, helping you buff makeup into your face and get into those hard-to-reach edges along your eyes and the corners of your nose. But the one downside of the tool is that it's sometimes hard to find in stores. Well, not anymore.
MAC is selling beautyblenders in 2018, gifting us with an amazing present just as the new year rings in. And the best part is we won't have to wait long to get our lipsticks and beauty sponges all in one place. The collab is happening this week, and beautyblenders will be sold in MAC starting Jan. 4, both online and at select MAC stores. So while you're trying out new highlighters or sampling new lip glosses at the MAC section of the department store, you can also pop over to the beauty sponge display and pick up favorite tools, like the beautyblender Original or the beautyblender Mini, all during the same beauty run. The prices will be the same as the original beautyblender prices, ranging from $16-$20. While some might see the new partnership as a little random, it's really not.
Many people go to MAC to pick up their favorite foundation formulas or concealer secret-weapons. Naturally, they will need a tool to help stipple that onto their face. If a beautyblender is right there, they will be able to grab one on their way to the cashier, which is a pretty savvy business move for the company. And honestly, the more places you can buy the innovative sponge, the better. Three sponges will be available for purchase — check out your options below.
