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!

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!

This isn't a bad sponge, but I don't think it's worth the price. I honestly prefer the Real Techniques version; I've used both and I just don't get the hype with this one. I don't find that it works as well as a brush for blending (it takes twice as long). I only use this after blending with a brush to smooth out the edges and remove any "cake face" (although a setting spray with work the same way). I would say save your money. It isn't bad, but it isn't worth the price.

I have bought this thing twice now. I get about 40% upset when i forget to pack this while traveling, because it makes a decent sized difference in my makeup! I use this with makeup forever face & body liquid foundation, and i get comments that you can hardly tell i have makeup on ^.^

I've owned BBs for over the past five years and I don't know what it is that truly makes this tool amazing, but it is just that. I clean mine before every use (would probably clean better if I did so AFTER each use), squeeze it into a towel to remove the bulk of the moisture, however, leaving it still damp. This is the best way this works for me. I use it with mineral makeup (powdered version), CC creams, and tinted moisturizers, setting/finishing powder, eye makeup to include powdered shadows, and even brow powder. The technique I use is bouncing without really lifting the BB off of the face, just a low bouncing. I never rub the BB. It appears to make my makeup melt with the skin, removes lines of demarcation both with my foundations and even eye makeup. Removes the 'powdered' appearance on my skin, too. To compare, I went back and used the standard triangle squares sponges, but there just is no comparison. I was a huge skeptic, but I fell in love at first bounce! I use the pointed end to better blend my under eye concealer with my powdered Laura Mercier Brightening Powder, still using the same bouncing technique. These really last when taken care of. I've never had any issues with mine having odors, or breaking down, or bugs making a nest (saw an article about this). I clean mine with either a gel facial cleanser or baby shampoo. If you're on the fence I strongly suggest trying one out. Save your receipt and return it if you aren't happy...but I bet you'll be very happy!

I was hesitant to buy this at first because I don't use sponges and this little thing is expensive! However, I can say that I love my beauty blender. I use it for everything. Foundation, highlight and even setting powder! I have the RT sponge as well, and while I like it as well, I find this one is a bit bouncier and softer which is better for blending.
