Backstage at Fashion Week, there are a few constants no matter which designer happens to be showing. Whether you’re at Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs or Missoni, you’ll always see bottles of champagne, you’ll see a model who has the unfortunate honor of wearing shoes two sizes too small and you’ll see hot pink beautyblenders in the hands of the makeup artists. It’s a sponge that’s moved from the runway to the real world, because women everywhere are falling hard for this soft, easy-to-use sponge. For the holidays, Beautyblender is offering a special limited-edition three-pack will save money and save face.

Makeup artists love the sponge because it’s an easy, fast way to blend foundation, cream blush and more onto the face without leaving any streaks or lines of demarcation. Just run the cheerfully bright sponge under the tap and squeeze it out (it’ll expand and get extra-squishy) and then it’s ready to use for all your cream and liquid makeup. The folks at beautyblender recommend a bouncing motion, so hop it all over your face for an even, streak-free finish that leaves your makeup more like a second skin than a layer sitting on top.

A single sponge runs $19.95, but thanks to Nordstrom, you’ll be able to get a set of three for just $49.95. Sound steep for a sponge? Sure it’s a little more expensive than your run of the mill latex triangles, but the texture and shape of the beautyblender lets it bounce between your brows, up under your eyes and more. If you’re not one to use a sponge for foundation, use it to blend everything together after you’ve applied your blush and bronzer and you’ll look flawless in no time flat.

Available at Nordstrom.
