The unique edgeless shape and exclusive material available only with beautyblender ensures impeccable, streak-free application with minimum product waste. Use with foundations, powders and any other complexion product.beautyblender's unique material is aqua-activated. When wet, it expands to about twice its size and becomes super soft to create an even, smooth blend & bounce, returning to its size when it air dries. beautyblender has chosen to use non-toxic, water-soluble dyes. For this reason, your beautyblender may shed dye for the first couple of washes - similar to a pair of blue jeans. Once you squeeze the water out of the beautyblender, the excess dye is removed as well. The dye does not transfer to the skin.This product is a nine time Allure Best of Beauty award winner.
