Get a look that combines hand application detail with airbrush application smoothness.

The Marvel 4 in 1 Beauty Blending Sponge is make-up application the Nanshy Way. Ours has to serve you, delight you, and exceed your expectations! We didn’t want to put our name on any old sponge, (and wouldn’t ever) especially one that only looks like beauty blenders. This 4-in-1 sponge, (yes, +1 more than the industry standard 3-in-1) a lot of effort went into research, extensive testing, and developed to be your ultimate beauty sponge and new ‘fave’.

Why 4-in-1 instead of only 3-in-1?

The added surface enables two features our testers loved:

The Nanshy exclusive, flattened rise up top comes to a (1) fine tip, ideal for covering imperfections, and perfect for blending in corners and smaller hard to reach areas. The second feature is its 45 degree-angled, rounded, flat shape that allows for wide-flat stippling, for easy-grip, and clean fingers. By neatly taking the place of the bottom shape, you can stand your 4-in1 on its bottom to dry, or during application, and not have to use that surface on your face.

If you prefer the large, round bottom, and need to place the Nanshy Marvel 4-in1 on its side, the additional surface inhibits rolling. No more falling into places you don’t want your beauty blender sponge to be.

Brighten your complexion and create build-able airbrush-like coverage, hide imperfections and achieve the smoothest finish imaginable.

Nanshy Make up Blending Sponges’ 4-in-1 shape makes application fool-proof: (2) flat edge for contouring around nose and eyes, (4) rounded bottom for blending large areas of the face, and to roll on your foundation. No matter which of the four you need to use at the moment, the Nanshy Marvel 4 in 1 Beauty Blending Sponge’s indented (3) waist, in the centre, is easy to hold, in the perfect place, very ergonomic. Always easy to grasp, no matter how challenging the application.

The Nanshy Marvel 4 in 1 Beauty Blending Sponge is very soft. Softness makes it wonderful to use and easier to clean. The micro-pore formulation allows for the beauty sponge to remain damp, grabbing just the right amount of make-up, and extend its shape when wet, yet easy to clean. And of course it’s Nanshy quality, so it’s latex free, non-allergenic and odour free.

How to clean makeup sponge? (more extensive article coming soon…)

Rinse Sponge under flowing water while using a squeezing motion, lather with beauty soap (baby shampoo works great too!), rinse clean, then towel dry, using the same squeezing motion. You’re all done! Set out to air-dry.

How to use makeup sponge? (more extensive article coming soon…)

  • Run under water or submerge to get it completely wet,
  • Nanshy Sponge will expand in size and have a pillow-like appearance,
  • Compress gently in your hand to slightly damp,
  • Swipe it across your cream or liquid foundation,
  • Dab it first in the midsection of your face near your nose,
  • Sweep it outward towards the edges of your face (cheek, forehead, and chin).

Within moments, your make-up will set, the coverage fantastic, and remain flawless.

Styled by Rihanna and with a focus on keeping your skin looking youthful, you’ll be left feeling fresh and cuter than Cupid with this hot new look. All you have to do is brush your highlight in a C-shaped motion from the top of your cheekbones right up to your temple using a high-quality fan brush. Next, for the ultimate shine effect, apply the same colour to your eyelids. Finally, coat your lips with a red lipstick, apply lip gloss and you’ll be left absolutely shining.

2. Smoky crimson

Designed by Hung Vanngo, this look leaves a hot red smoky effect around your eyes and will make you feel so sexy you’ll hardly be able to stand it (and neither will your partner). To achieve this seductive Valentine’s Day makeup look, apply any deep red eyeshadow to the lower lash lines and the entire crease, extending upward and outward as you go. Blend the edges using a softer red eyeshadow and an eyeshadow blending brush. To complete the look, coat your lashes with a bold black mascara and try a rosy nude lipstick for your lips. That way, all of the focus will stay on your fiery eyes.

3. Soft and cuddly

If you want something super girly and delightfully endearing, this look, worn by the awesome Jennifer Lawrence, will leave potential suitors fighting over who gets to wrap you up snug in a blanket. First, you’ll need to apply a heavy layer of charcoal eyeliner. Follow this up with a soft pink shadow around the edges of your eyes and add a gentle shimmer to your tear ducts. This will draw extra attention to your eyes. To finish, try brushing the same soft pink shadow on your brow bone to really highlight your sultry side. To up your brow game, you could also consider getting a quality eye brush set.

4. Berry good indeed

When you think Valentine’s, the first colour that pops into your head is probably bright red, but who says that you have to go with the crowd? Be adventurous and throw caution to the wind this Valentine’s Day with a berry coloured lipstick like this one, worn by Lupita Nyong’o. To create the perfect purple look, pair this up with smokey black eyeshadow and thick black mascara for long, gorgeous lashes. Before dipping into any purple shadows with your brushes, make sure that your brushes are clean with a top of the range brush soap to avoid any colour clashing accidents.

5. Ready to pounce

One look that’s been trending of late is the cat eyes, as seen here worn by Bella Hadid. Create this Valentine’s Day makeup look that will leave you looking dangerously alluring on the 14th of February by using double-winged eyeliner to give you the ultimate feline features. Next, strategically place gold eyeshadow on the outer and inner corners of your eyes. Apply a touch of pink to your cheeks to complete this catty style, blending the colour in using a good blending sponge.

6. Shut up and kiss me

If you want irresistible lips this Valentine’s, this look, worn by Margot Robbie, will make your pout appear soft, sexy and super kissable. This style relies on subtlety, which is why you’ll want to use a light pink lip stain, as opposed to a lipstick. This will give your lips a ‘just been kissed’ look. To really set this off, apply two layers of mascara to make your lashes look extra thick, or, if you’re feeling really fancy, try wearing a half set of lashes. Finally, brush a hint of pink across your cheeks with a blush brush.
