Nope, nope and NOPE!!
The beautyblender sponge is one of the best tools you can use to apply your makeup for a natural, flawless finish. But, this changes everything – Stevie Miller, a 20-year-old from Suffolk, found bugs in her beautyblender.
She spotted a black hole in her sponge, so she decided to use tweezers to remove the debris, in case any got stuck inside. She removed a foreign material which she thought resembled a beetle. She then pulled out an insect wing. UGH.
Then all of a sudden, she pulls out another bug. “It’s got legs, it got legs, it’s got legs!” she screams.
As soon as we’re home, we’re cleaning our makeup bag. We’re NOT taking any chances!
