Hey everyone! How are you doing today?! I can’t believe it is almost Thanksgiving! I just got back from a cruise celebrating my 30th birthday and it just feels so weird to be at a tropical place once day and the next day it’s cold! Anyways, today I am going to talk to you about the Michael Todd SonicBlend Foundation Brush… for short, it’s an automated foundation brush! Keep reading to find out what I think.
Michael Todd SonicBlend Foundation Brush
What is the SonicBlend:
Michael Todd SonicBlend Foundation Brush is the first of its kind makeup brush that applies makeup at sonic speeds up to 400 times per second and has built in protection against microbial contamination so the brush stays cleaner, fresher longer.
Please look past how dirty this is… I’ve actually been using it tho.
How sleek and sexy is this foundation brush?! The handle is curvy and super easy to hold but also looks really cool! I love the fun pink color mine came in.
When you purchase the SonicBlend each box comes with a cordless, rechargeable sonic brush handle, antimicrobial makeup brush head, USB Charging Cable, User guide, and a 1 year warranty. Available in 3 different colors… pink (like mine), black or tortoise shell.
Price and Where to Buy.
The SonicBlend is $99 and can be bought on the Michael Todd website. $99 may seem like a lot for a foundation brush, but I don’t know of any other brush that actually prevents bacteria build up that other brushes may get.
How to Use.
I start by applying foundation directly to the brush head, but if you normally dot the foundation on your face or start with a small amount on the back of your hand you can still do that here.
Then I turn on the SonicBlend, by pressing down on the power button once. The SonicBlend starts off in the lowest speed. There are actually 3 speeds, to change the speed press the power button again while the SonicBlend is on. The speeds and low, medium, and high. For my own personal use I like it either on low or medium. High was a little fast for me! :)
Now I have reached the speed I like, I just lightly press the SonicBlend against my face and move it from section to section. With each vibration it is blending my foundation into my face flawlessly. And honestly it feels like you are giving yourself a little face massage when you use this… which is okay in my book! :)
Just a tip… start out with less foundation than you normally use, build up coverage if you need to.
I think this foundation brush is really innovative and cool. It helps keep bacteria away, which is super nice because sometimes… okay a lot of times I just get lazy and don’t wash my makeup brushes. So having a brush that is actually antimicrobial is really helpful. I love the sleek design of the brush handle and the super cute pink color. The brush head is a little small compared to other foundation brushes I have, but it is really soft and dense. I love how easy it is to blend foundation with this brush, it really takes no effort. I definitely recommend this brush to anyone, but it would really make a GREAT Christmas present for the beauty addict in your life that has the latest palette, or the perfect foundation, they would be someone that would really love a foundation brush like this.
What do you think of a brush that does all the work for you? Would you buy it?
