I just bought this the other day, and went right back to buy another.

This is a great sponge. It's SUPER soft, and does not absorb much product and also washes out GREAT. The only downside, I've had it barely a week and it's already got 2 cracks in the foam. I don't mind because it's so cheap and so soft. I tred this sponge a year ago and it was really stiff, so they must have updated the product because it's completely opposite of what I remember. I do also use the RT sponge, and like that one, too - but I think it's fun to switch back and forth.

I have tried the beautyblender - HORRIBLE. Waste of money and regretted the purchase the day I used it. Do not be suckered into trying one of them like I did. Ugh.

I second what the last reviewer said. This sponge is the most versatile shape with a round end for bouncing, two flat surfaces for smoothing, and 'tips' that allow application in tight facial areas. It is exceptionally soft but does not absorb (waste) as much product as most sponges I have previously used. The cost is reasonable and it has held up well for me with many different products.

I can't believe there are only 3 reviews of this blending sponge on here! It's so good. I'd tried many different beauty sponges & thought that I'd found "the one". But the quality of that one seemed to decrease each time I purchased it (which became more & more frequently, because a brand of sponge that once lasted for months started falling apart in a few weeks). This sponge has replaced that one in my routine though & I'm happy about it... this green sponge is way better than that orange one ever was.

This blending sponge has a shape that makes it easy to reach areas like the inner corners of my eyes, etc. It's not too hard or too soft & it expands nicely when dampened. I find that it doesn't soak up a crazy amount of foundation like some sponges do. Gives a flawlessly blended look. Super easy to clean - just one pump of antibacterial hand soap, rub it into the sponge, then squeeze out repeatedly... & it looks good as new. Also I like the fact that it comes with a metal stand that you can store it on if you want to. I don't use it but I've never seen any other blending sponge come with that.

The best thing about this product is the price. It's $4.99 & in my experience is very easy to find in stores. This sponge lasts forever too. I've had mine for 6 months & while there's a tiny bit of wear on one side, I'm not planning on replacing it any time soon... it still works perfectly. I will buy another one when I need to though. I'm done trying lots of blending sponges because I've found one that performs exactly how I want it to. Hopefully this product doesn't become super popular to the point where they start raising the price & lowering the quality.

These are a great value and earth friendly so I keep giving the company a shot but I find with their brushes they're a bit pokey. Probably not enough to bother most people but my skin has become hypersensitive over the past decade. So I say yes for others but no for me :(

Makeup Brushes -Ecotools -Bamboo Angled Eyeliner Brush

I love the brush, but I rarely ever use it for eyeliner. It does leave a nice even application of makeup, but it's too thick for my preference. I have slightly hooded eyes that are big and wide meaning I need fine defined eyeliner to add definition which this brush is to wide for. I sometimes use it for a natural looking eyeliner with a neutral colored powder to give myself a well blended eyelash shadow line. I mainly just use it for my brows and again it's works better with powder than pomade or gel. It will not give you those fine little lines at the front of your brow, but a soft blend even tail.

This is not my favorite Kabuki brush, or powder brush for that matter, but this is a great brush when you want to have one in your purse for touch-ups throughout the day! Soft bristles and does not shed.

Makeup Brushes -Ecotools -Bronze Buki Brush

I LOVE this brush. It's big and fluffy and soft and shaped like a big contour brush (I uploaded a pic). The bristles aren't densely packed, which is perfect for not overapplying bronzer. The shape makes it easy to apply in the right area and lets you sculpt a bit while you bronze. It somehow diffuses pigment and blends everything perfectly. An ideal bronzer brush has been kind of an elusive unicorn item for me, so I'm really glad I found this.

It's inexpensive and has retained its softness through 2 washes so far. Some of my past Ecotools brushes that I liked really went south after washing, so that's a plus and I hope it stays that way. Also, it's fun to use.

UPDATE 5/23/2018: I tried Real Techniques diamond sponge and was so disappointed. i went to Walmart and bought this sponge again. The second one is much better texture wise and will last longer.

ORIGINAL: I purchased this after watching a YouTube person compared it to the real techniques sponge. They preferred this over Real Techniques.

I like the multiple sides and angles on this sponge which does take some practice to figure out, but on first use my makeup looked airbrushed. I was so thrilled. It is very soft and I feel like I use less foundation.

I won't purchase this again because the quality it not as good as Real Techniques. After 1 wash, it lost some of the sponge material. I usually repurchase Real Techniques sponge every 3 months, this will not make it.

I bought this because of some good reviews on YouTube and the price. It doesn’t last as long as other sponges. I feel like it soaks up more product than other drugstore sponges. It’s just not that great and I won’t repurchase. I prefer the Real Techniques sponge better

I bought this at target because it was cheap, under $4. It looks nice in the packaging, it's an eye catching bright green and I wont lie..that's a big reason I got it.

I don't really buy into the hype of the original beautyblenders. I've had them but honestly don't think they made that big of a difference compared to my real techniques sponges. The ecotools sponge is very soft and expands quite a lot when wet, but my nails end up tearing it every single time no matter how careful I am. I've used it three times and it looks much older than it actually is.

Also, it doesn't blend as well as my other sponges. I have to put a lot more work into getting a flawless finish than I usually do. It also absorbs a ton of product, even when damp. It just isn't for me considering it's only about a dollar cheaper than real techniques. Be sure to wash it with soap before use if you weren't going to do that already. The dye bleeds on the first wash, so if you were to just wet it and use it you might end up with a green tinted face.

This is a bright green sponge I purchased at Walmart. One end is rounded and the other is narrow and squared off. I would prefer one end to have a small point. As soon as I used it, I threw away my other sponges because this one is so superior. It is very soft but does not absorb as much product as do most damp sponges. My liquid foundations look so much better and more even. Ecotools has a loyal customer in me for this sponge.

Excellent brush! I use it with my mineral powder and the brush picks up the powder and distributes it evenly. It is so soft on my face. I absolutely love it. Purchase it and you will not be sorry.

Misc Beauty Tools -Ecotools -Perfecting Blender Duo

I got these after seeing so many good reviews and being tired of purchasing Beauty Blenders. This duo is a GAME changer. The face sponge gets HUGE when wet and applies my foundations and tinted moisturizers like a dream without soaking up all of my product and it keeps my dry skin moisturized at the same time! The smaller sponge I use dry to blend out my concealer after applying it and letting it dry down a bit for more coverage (thank you auntie Jackie Aina!!! 💕) The small sponge does a phenom job of blending out my concealer! I love the different sides of the sponges and find I use them a lot more than the butt of the a Beauty Blender. I hate the Real Techniques sponge (too hard) and was a die hard fan of the Beauty Blender, but I can’t go back to that knowing this exists and is half the price for the duo and only $5 for the face sponge. TRY THIS!!!

Makeup Brushes -Ecotools -Blending & Bronzing Brush

on 3/23/2018 1:07:00 PM

This brush applies bronzer beautifully. It is a perfect size, not too big not, not too small. I always found most bronzing brushes too huge. I often used a blush brush for that reason but those can pack bronzer on too thick and too precise. This brush packs on a good amount without overdoing it and most importantly, it blends the powder seemlessly. The duofiber makes the blending soft and effective at the same time. I used to use Bobbi Brown, YSL and Laura Mercier brushes for my bronzing but this one is better! I would repurchase.

I only purchased the larger of these two sponges, and let me tell you, it swells up to ginormous proportions when dampened. The texture is different than other blending sponges I’ve tried. It’s not as soft or squishy as the Beauty Blender, it doesn’t tear like the Real Techniques sponge, it almost reminds me of a sponge you would use to wash a car with, those big brick sized sponges but without all the large holes (obviously). The best feature is the shape. I like the rounded bottom and chiseled sides - one of the flat edged sides is larger than the other so it is very versatile. It makes applying foundation quick because it is so large, but I still spend a fair amount of time blending because of the texture of the sponge and because I like my foundation to look natural on my skin. It takes some getting used to but once you do it is a really great blending sponge that easily cleans up like new which I can’t say is the case with the Beauty Blender. Great price for a great product. I will repurchase when I need a new one.
