Does it come in my shade?
The most controversial part about the latest beautyblender launch is the shade range. The beautyblender foundation comes in 32 shades (while it’s not as diverse as the Fenty Beauty launch, it’s definitely more selection than the 10 of Benefit’s Oxygen Wow foundation options). I also think it’s unrealistic for a brand to be able to serve EVERYBODY’S skin tone perfectly, unless you’re the Lancome foundation where they customize your color at the counter. My only complaint about foundations is that I have a hard time finding shades that are light enough for my skin tone that is still full coverage.
Everyone who received a PR package has had different opinions. Some say there’s not enough color selection, but based on photos, there’s at least 20 shades of pure vanilla which could be amazing for my incredibly fair skin. At the same time, I’ve heard even the lightest shade won’t be light enough for all of us fair skinned ladies, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Here’s a look at the skin tones that Beauty Blender claims to cover:

The packaging on this foundation is BOMB. It looks sleek and they’ve stayed true to their claim to fame – the beauty blender itself. The back of the foundation packaging fits a beauty blender perfectly.
Jeffree Star Beauty Blender Foundation Review and Wear Test
One of the first reviews of the Beauty Blender foundation was Jeffree Star’s wear test. He shows the PR package (which is INCREDIBLE!), shows all the shades, swatches and wears it for a full day with check-ins throughout the day. Take a look:

I hope to get my hands on one of the new Beauty Blender foundations, but I’m just having a difficult time deciding on the best shade.
No matter how many times you read reviews or watch YouTube videos, the best thing you can do is try the foundation for yourself.
