I had used the Real Techniques dupe of this product for a while before I decided to purchase this to see if there really is a difference. Honestly, I don't see why I should pay $20 when the RT sponge is just as good for $6. The only big difference I noticed is that the beauty blender is a bit easier to clean in that my foundation gets cleaned out more quickly than from my RT sponge. But we're talking like a 2 minute difference here. So personally, while this works great, once it has run its course, I'll be going back to the RT makeup sponge.

This is great for my Bobbi Brown BB cream, looks like a "better version" of my skin, because you can still see the skin under the bb cream.I hate foundations because of the "mask effect" so I love it because it makes me look so natural. I used to use my fingers but you can't comparet, this delivers far better results and the application is easier and less messy. Would definately buy again.

I bought a Sephora brand similar sponge to save $. Used that for 3 years, without it breaking down. On a whim I bought The Sponge 2 weeks ago. It is So Much Better! Soft and the pointy end is great for concealer and the corners of your eyes and nose! And the large end provides flawless coverage--amazingly better than the knock-off!! I'm so surprised and pleased. I'm looking forward to applying my foundation in the mornings! Even at the price, this is one of those worth it things.

Alright, let's talk about the beauty blender. This will be a very long review so that I can cover all the bases. I would rate it about a 3. I sort of like it, I don't love it. I think there is a lot of hype about this product that needs to be addressed though.First off, this is a very hit and miss product for foundation. I have quite an expansive makeup collection which means I have dozens of foundations that I have tested this with. I have come to this conclusion: the beauty blender is suitable for matte, full coverage foundations. It works with SOME medium coverage satin finish foundations but more than likely it does not. I love this with my Kat Von D Lock-It foundation, and my Makeup Forever Matte Velvet foundation. The Beauty Blender, however, *completely* sucks up my MUFE HD foundation which is a satin finish. I need 4 pumps, even 5, of the product to get a decent amount of product on my face, and even then it doesn't compare to the coverage I get out of 2 pumps with a brush. This does work decently with my L'oreal True Match (satin) however. Again I have to use quite a bit more but it's not to the degree of the MUFE HD. Do not even attempt to use this with a light coverage dewy finish foundation. You will need 4x the product in that case. It is a complete waste. My best recommendation is if you're rich and don't care about using 6 pumps of a foundation, the finish will be beautiful no matter what foundation you're using honestly. If not, stick with thicker foundations with the Beauty Blender. The Tarte foundation is a gel consistency, as well as the Mac Studio sculpt (also a gel) so those work better with the BB.This works quite beautifully with undereye concealer, any of them frankly because of course they tend to be thicker. It blends concealer out without pulling your undereye area, takes away enough product so that you don't have too much excess under your eye. Despite this, I don't really find myself going to my washroom to wet my BB, get a towel, dry it, do my makeup, and then wash it afterwords and put it in a ventilated area to assure it doesn't get moldly. It's just a long process, you know? I don't find myself reaching for it often. I'd like to, but I always think 'nah I'm not up for it right now'. Also, I do think my BB might have developed mold despite me putting it in a well ventilated area, washing it pretty frequently and only owning it for about 1.5/2 months. I'm not sure 100% sure if it was mold, or just a pesky stain. I tried scrubbing at that area and all the other spots came out, while that darkish area did not. To be safe I ripped out that area of my beauty blender and watched over it to see if anything else would develop. So far, it's fine. But I'm just not sure if it's worth all of this.Last but not least, the price is goddamn ridiculous. It's a sponge, if the price was *maybe* $15 CAD I wouldn't be so hesitant to use it and repurchase it. Alas, this sponge is a whopping $28 CAD. I do think the producers of this sponge went down the wrong road. Of course it's a money maker and popular but I know many people who have never repurchased it because of the insane price every 3 months for such a simplistic object. If they had kept the price honest and advertised this as an intelligent alternative to a makeup brush more people would come back to it. Why would I buy this when my makeup brushes can last a lifetime? All I see is a hassle that is more expensive, sucks up product, an annoying process to use, a health concern, and overpriced sponge. Overhyped, and I have been let down in a majority of ways. It's not the worst thing out there, but it's not worth what it does. I'm going to try the Real Techniques Sponge just for curiosities sake but if that doesn't work out I'm pretty much done with sponges in my makeup routine.

LOVE IT! I don't have to do anything put tap tap and it blends perfectly. I don't use it for my foundation I use it for my concealers and I'm obsessed! Won't ever use my fingers or another brush again!

When I first heard about this I thought people had to be mad to pay so much for a sponge but then I got curious (like so many others) and bought it at a Sephora 20% sale. Mine is the red carpet version which doesn't come with a cleaner. Prior to using I made sure to watch some YouTube videos for tutorials and the beauty bloggers all seemed to love it. Having tried it today I must say IT IS WORTH IT. I bought two more today to stock up. My boyfriend (who seldom notices my makeup whatsoever) commented that my skin looked nice today so it is something. :) one thing that I didn't like so much was that the dye came off with washing with soap. It was regular hand soap. Doesn't bother me that much though might be that the hand soap is too harsh. My two pack today (bought from BHG) came with a bottle of blender cleaner. Excited to continue using this baby!!!:)

When I first heard about the beauty blender I said that there was no way I'd pay $20 for a freaking makeup sponge. I happily ignored the beauty blender for several years. Then I got curious, and I saw all the hype. I still didn't really understand how the sponge didn't just soak up liquid foundation, or how a damp sponge wouldn't leave a streaky finish. I finally took the plunge, and I am SUCH a convert. I love this little sponge. It makes my foundation look flawless and absolutely amazing. Thus far I have used this pretty much only for liquid foundation. I know it's supposed to be good for concealers and powder foundations too, but I don't really wear those. I did use this to try and blend the mascara streaks on my cheeks when I went as Tonya Harding for Halloween, but that's not really normal usage. ANYWAY, when I got my beauty blender I still wasn't entirely sure how the thing worked. I watched the online instructions on Sephora's website, and I followed them, and once I started the whole method of using this sponge felt totally natural, even though I had always applied foundation with my fingers before. As for cleanup, I clean my beauty blender after each use, and I use a simple bar of castille soap to clean it. I just rub the sponge on the soap, work up a lather, and rinse out. It works well, only takes a few seconds, and then my sponge is always clean. Yes, some of the pink dye does rinse out when you clean it. If you don't want to deal with that I recommend the white one. While the $20 price tag is still undeniably steep I don't see myself trying the cheaper knock-offs I always see at Marshall's. I'm just so happy with how this works, I don't want to mess with a good thing.

I actually got mine free from birchbox. I really like this sponge it is super soft and does blend make up nicely but the thing about it being damp kinda freaked me out I've never applied make up wet before but it works for me. Thank you birchbox this was a lovely gift. And fyi these do shrink back to size to fit back in the plastic container but not exactly the same size but smaller than when dampened. Fyi the girl who claims she found bugs in her bb is a liar. Now that I own one I cannot possibly see how bugs of different species get in these smh ppl are so disgusting with their lies it's sickening.

The price hurts a bit but this is the sponge on the market as of now. I know because I have compared it next to all the other sponges I have owned before and this is an absolute winner. If you're new to the BeautyBlender game I suggest you go for the original version, which is pink. It does leak colour over the time, but that's because it has some vegetable dyes in it which are harmless to your skin. You can always go for the white version if you want no dyes at all. I find that this sponge makes my makeup look absolutely stunning! I have noticed that I use it all over the face: to blend my concealer, to apply foundation, remove extra blush or bronzer, even blending in a cream highlighter - this product is amazing. If you want to read how it compares to Miracle Complexion Sponge you can check the review below. Hope it helps!http://www.partyparrotblog.com/#!The-Sponge-Battle/cmbz/562f26a80cf213dceacfa3a3

I was a bit hesitant before buying this, because this little thing is expensive! However I decided to buy it, and honestly I don't regret it: I don't usually wear foundation on a daily basis, but when I do it looks flawless. I use my beauty blender every day to blend my concealer (I have really dark circles so I never go out without concealer on) and to powder. This sponge just makes everything look perfect and makes my routine easier because I can't apply too much concealer or powder of I use the beautyblender. Definitely worth the price!
