I never bought the Beauty Blender so I can't compare the Quo Blending Sponge to it, but I love this! It creates a very natural foundation application. It is the perfect firmness for a makeup sponge and it has both a rounded side and a pointed side to get to the spaces such as around the nose area. The only reason why I took off one lippy was because this sponge can sometimes make my face smell like sponge.PROS:- Creates natural foundation application- Perfect shape to get to every part of the face- Perfect firmness needed to "pat" on foundation- Inexpensive ($5 CAD)CONS:- Can sometimes make my face smell a bit like sponge (but this smell goes away after a few minutes)- Isn't travel-friendly or storage-friendly (the packaging that the sponge comes in is not reusable)

I have never tried the original beauty blender (mainly due to cost and I happily use my fingers followed by a latex sponge) however this was $5 and seemed to be essentially the same thing so I thought i would try it out. I do not need a lot of coverage but I liked the idea of using a full coverage/matte foundation and sheering out with a damp sponge. So far I'm pretty happy with this, but could live without it. It is annoying to go and dampen the sponge every time I want to apply foundation, and then clean it right after, but I do like the effect and that it covers more space and doesnt leave lines like a latex wedge. I still use wedges for pressing in concealer but this sponge is my preferred application for foundation, next to fingers.

I haven't bought the much hyped Beauty Blender sponge so I can't compare it to the Quo Blending Sponge and if the comparisons are accurate then I'm happy with the Quo one. I can't justify spending that kind of money on a sponge and the Quo sponge is only $5 CAD. I used this sponge with my NARS Sheer Glow foundation and I was blown away with the results. The application was flawless compared to when I've used a brush to blend/buff the foundation. The Quo sponge is far superior to those BB knockoffs at TJMaxx and it's the same price. I've already gotten two more back ups as I like to wash my sponges frequently. Quo has some real gems and this sponge is one of them.

I'm not sure I know how to use this sponge to love it like the other reviewers do. I only use a bit of BB cream on occasion (no foundation for me) and I think the sponge pretty much sucks up all the products and doesn't spread any on my face. I think i get better results with my fingers or a stiff edged brush. I can see how it could help blend concealer/foundation and it's a nice feeling sponge, smooth and cushioning, really nice on the skin. Unfortunately for me I don't have a real use for it so I'm glad I'm not out a lot of money, this wasn't really expensive to purchase.

This sponge has the same effect as a beauty blender, except it is way more affordable :) Very good at blending foundation and concealer, and gives an air brushed effect

Makes my liquid foundation look natural! I love it, and it's very affordable at $5. I'm thinking about buying a backup, or maybe the set of 3 minis that are coming out. I'm also experimenting with applying cream blush with the sponge.

This sponge is PHENOMENAL. I am BEYOND in love with it. I have also just found that Quo release three mini blenders.. which I also LOVE. They're much smaller so are great for around your eyes and tighter areas. This is a much under-appreciated product that is the closest replica of the Beauty Blender.

I've gotten super curious about the beauty blender but I didn't want to blow $26 dollars on a sponge! I spotted this dupe at Shoppers Drug Mart and happily indulged for $5 dollars. What a steal!I love how seamlessly it blends foundation and highlighters onto my skin. I love how natural it makes my foundations look. I was totally skeptical because I had tried and hated traditional makeup sponges but this thing is magical. It made my foundation looks so natural and effortless! And it applied my highlighter like a dream!I love the fact that it's reusable like a brush and I can keep washing it and using it until the thing falls apart. And I can afford to replace it once it gets worn out when the price is so affordable! One thing that bothers me is the packaging which doesn't offer an easy way of storing this cute little sponge. I've repurposed one of the caps of my Bath and Body Works fine fragrance mists and I use that as a holder for my sponge when it's not in use and for it to dry. I'm really glad I took the plunge and decided to try this sponge! I adore it!

I know this is most comparable to the Beauty Blender, which I contemplated buying but decided to forego because of the hefty price. Instead, I saw this at Shopper's Drug Mart and for $5 CAD, it was basically 4 x cheaper than the Beauty BlenderAnyway, it performed exactly as I hoped! I love the shape because it really helps to get into the creases of my face; when damp, it gives a flawless finish. Also, it's so much more time-efficient than my stippling brush, which covers less surface area of my face as I am blending. With this, I cover a lot of my face in a short amount of time.Overall, I can't compare this to the BB because I don't own one but I will say it did exactly what I was expecting, giving my makeup the finish I was hoping for and it is so worth it. Recommend!
