Beautyblender's New Sponge Is About to Become Your End-of-Summer Savior

It's as functional as it is adorable.

It's hard to imagine a beauty tool more intrinsic to the modern face beat than the Beautyblender. I mean, the art of blending will *never* be the same.

Last fall, the brand unveiled a new iteration of its cushion-y tool, the blotterazzi, an egg-shaped compact with blotting sponges intended to sop up sweat like a blotting paper. For some reason unbeknownst to me, it took me until the sweat-happy, dog days of this summer for me to make it an official member of my makeup bag. But a late-to-the-party obsession is an obsession nonetheless, so you can imagine my delight in the news that, as part of their hotly-anticipated collab with Too Faced, BB is releasing a new, limited-edition version of its mattifying compact with kitschy heart and puppy (yes, that's Too Faced founder Jerrod Blandino's dog Clover) illustrations on the packaging.

As if snapping up the oil-zapping, keep-it-in-your-bag-at-all-times conversation piece compact isn't enough of a draw, it comes in a $40 set that includes an OG Beautybelnder (it's physically impossible to have enough of these), as well as Too Faced's Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo, for strobing. Translation: This kit is going to help keep your T-zone shine-free, foundation seamless, and the high planes of your face gleamy and sculpted as you transition from summer to fall.

Now, an exact date for the launch has yet to be revealed, so in the meantime you can snag the blotterazzi right this second to address your end-of-summer perspiration.
