Listen here!

Weโ€™re all about breakthrough beauty products, and it doesnโ€™t get any more ICONIC than the pink, tear drop-shaped sponge that revolutionized the way we apply foundation ๐Ÿ’— ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—. In 2002, Hollywood makeup artist Rea Ann Silva created an entirely new category with her reusable, water-activated Beauty Blender that delivers seriously seamless foundation results. Now used by everyone from Makeup by Mario to Kylie Jenner to your very own Breaking Beauty Podcast hosts Jill and Carlene, 17 units are sold every single minute ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

Listen in as the genius inventor recalls what it was like hitting the road with New Kids On the Block and working with the Notorious B.I.G. before the Eureka moment working on the very first HD television show when her smash-hit applicator came to be. Then, we fast forward 15 years and ask Rea Ann about all those LOL #YouTube hacks ๐Ÿ†. (Plus, get an ear-full about a never-before-heard customer service call from an adult film star ๐Ÿ™ˆ.)

And finally, you're not going to want to miss the #glowdown on Beauty Blender's first foray into makeup with #BounceFoundation, which has been making headlines since its debut @sephora this week. We got all the scoop on its KILLAH finish and yes, we go deep on the contraversial shade selection.
