I'm very surprised by how much I like this sponge considering how loyal I have been to my trusty beauty blender for years. I wanted to try something different, and have typically enjoyed my Morphe purchases, and the price point was great! I have a real gripe with the plastic packaging it comes in, but nothing can be done about that. The sponge is much more dense than my beauty blender, but I typically use the sides of the sponge to apply foundation anyways. It absorbs a very slight amount of product, no different that the beauty blender. What I really enjoy is how well I can get into my deepset undereye area with the tip of the sponge. Because it is denser than the beauty blender, I enjoy working with the tip of the sponge more. Also the contour edge is perfect for placing loose powder to "bake" my under eye area. I like that I don't have to carefully work around an eyeliner wing, it stays firm and places the product exactly where it needs to be. Now this is neither here nor there, but I also like that the rich red colour of the sponge, it doesn't stain as easily as my beauty blender. For me this product is more multi-functional, looks cleaner, and is less than half the cost. I love it!

I bought this after hearing people rave about it on YT. I'd heard it was a bit denser than the Real Techniques sponge, but was quite surprised at how much more when I first tried it. At first I was sure I'd hate it, but I actually really like it! I've never tried a BB although I have two, so can't compare, but I would repurchase this sponge. My foundation goes on smoothly and I quite like the way it works. The L'Oreal one was way too spongy and held far too much water for my taste. The Morphe one never feels overly wet to me. I'd like to try the other Morphe sponge that's specifically for foundation, but this was the only one they had at Sephora.

I purchased the Morphe sponge after listening to many gurus rave about it on Sephora's website. I have to say that I was nieve in trusting some of the YT gurus' opinions on these things. They are shilling these things for a reason. There is no difference between this sponge and any sponger that can be purchased at TJ Max or Winners. I would choose the RT or the BB over this when spending my hard earned cash. Comparing the Morphe Highlight and Contour Sponge with the Beauty Blender (BB) and the Real Techniques (RT) Miracle Complexion Sponge. PRICE (approx in CAD): RT $7.50, BB $9.50, BB $26 SIZE: The RT and Morphe sponge are the same sizes while the BB is smaller. I prefer the smaller size of the BB, as it allows for a more precise application on all areas of the face. SHAPE: The RT and Morphe both have flat sides while the BB has a rounded side. I prefer having the rounded side for foundation application. All three blenders have a pointed size. The RT and Morphe sponges have the exact same pointed sides while the BB has more of an elongated point. I prefer the BB point, as it makes application of concealer in the corner of the eyes easier. DENSITY: The BB is the squishiest of the sponges. The RT and Morphe are comparable; however, the Morphe is the hardest of all the sponges. I prefer the BB's squish level. I feel it applies a more airbrushed look. I do think if you like a more packed on makeup application, the RT and Morphe would work best. Concealer, for example, may apply best with the Morphe if not for the shape. COLOUR: Esthetically, I don't really care about the colour of the blender. I guess I like the Morphe the best. The Real Techniques (orange) looks the most faded in colour but does not appear to bleed colour. The BB sponge bleeds (pink) when being washed. I did not notice the same with the black BB but it too fades. They all start to look ugly when being used. I guess the BB looks the less because it is the least vibrant to start. Overall, the only real pro to choosing the Morphe sponge over the RT or the BB is having the straight side. The sponge is a good choice for people who like dense sponges but this is not my personal preference. Based on the price difference, I would choose the Real Technique sponge over the Morphe.

I mistakenly purchased this instead of the Flawless Beauty Sponge which I sincerely hope is much softer than this one because I was looking for a blending sponge for foundation. Next time I’ll have to read the packaging before purchasing as it is labeled correctly, completely my error. The chiseled edge is good for blending out cream contour or for baking (if you are into that kind of thing) but since I use an angled brush for contour and rarely use any powder on my dry skin I don’t have much use for this sponge. Plus it is extremely hard to clean. Big time fail for me.
