I have never used a sponge to apply makeup in the past and so I didn’t know what I was missing out on until using this.
I always thought the Beauty Blender or this Real Technique sponge was for people that have dry skin (I have very oily skin) as it adds moisture to foundation/powder so I never thought it would change my makeup game until finally trying it out.
First off, I love the shape of this sponge; it’s perfect for blending out foundation and the flat edge is great for blending out concealer and baking the under eyes. The texture of this sponge is very firm until you wet it and then it becomes very soft and bounces really nicely on the skin.
The first time I tried it I used a foundation that usually looks very heavy and cakey on me and this sponge made it look flawless and fresh! I was shocked, then I continued with my concealer and it blended it out in a few seconds and my under eyes looked moisturized and smooth. I felt really weird putting the sponge in powder to apply to my face but once I blended it into my skin I toke a step back and was shocked that my face makeup never looked better! It also did something to the foundation and powder that helped my makeup look nice and fresh for much longer than usual.
I have also ordered the Beauty Blender and there will be a review soon on that as well, I want to compare the two. I feel so late to the game but better late than never!
