The beautyblender® red.carpet ($19.95; sephora.com) is a new, limited-edition exclusive addition to the beauty blender makeup sponge family. 'red.carpet' is essentially the same product in a limited edition packaging and color. A few things I like to use the beauty blender for are to sheer thicker foundations and concealers, add a touch of highlighter to the cheekbones and cupid’s bow and finally to tone down the overall look of foundations if they look too cakey or powdery. I quite like the original pink beautyblender, and the red.carpet, although looks the same, feels a tad different. I found it to be less denser than the original, which is fine, since it doesn’t really affect the roll and bounce motion of the product that very much. red.carpet does bleed a little bit of color every time I wash and it after a couple of washes, started looking a bit faded in color. I've never had these problems with the original beautyblender though. The color bleeding did not affect the end result or the way cream products look on the skin, so it did not bother me so much, but if you do love this one specifically for the bright red color, this is one to keep in mind!
