When the Color Me makeup applicator, brainchild of former Benefit and Urban Decay makeup artist Eric Jimenez, launched last year, it really was the cool new thing in makeup. With it, we could apply foundation with a pulsing applicator that blended makeup seamlessly and in record time; suddenly, using brushes and fingers could no longer compare.

And now, to give regular users even more access to the kind of tools makeup pros have, Color Me has launched the Pro Edition of its makeup applicator. This one comes turbo-charged, which means makeup goes on flawlessly  in an even shorter time. Just like how makeup artists often use finger-tapping motions to blend foundation and concealer, this applicator pulses at a rate of 250 taps a second to allow your makeup to blend in record time (and we really mean record time). Comparing this Pro Edition to the original Color Me, we could feel that the Pro Edition is more powerful, which is good for higher and therefore longer-lasting coverage.

Similar to the original, the Color Me Pro Edition comes with two sponges included. Both are the Universal Sponges, which can be used for applying liquid or powder foundations, BB or CC creams. Just start from the cheek and go outwards towards the hairline and jawline, moving the applicator in gentle, sweeping motions – there’s no need to rub or press hard, as the applicator’s definitely powerful enough to give you the coverage you want.
