Online Only Blending Sponge

Item #: 2500546

Now Latex Free! The e.l.f. Cosmetics Blending Sponge flawlessly applies makeup for professionally even and smooth looking skin. Great for creating a full coverage base, contouring or layering color. This durable sponge is washable and reusable, and perfect for use with all formulations including creams, liquids, and powder foundations, concealers or blush. The comfort curve fits perfectly in the hand and is great for controlled application so your hands always stay clean. Works great with your favorite e.l.f. foundations and concealers!
Dip the sponge into product and apply in a bouncing or "stippling" motion. Use the rounded end to cover large areas of the face and the pointed end to apply in tight crevices and corners.

Beauty Tip: Wet the sponge first with water and squeeze out excess water. A damp sponge will help use less product and also apply it more seamlessly.

Why all the bad reviews?

By Jubilee

from Florida

Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Blending Sponge:

Ok. I'll start off my saying that it does soak up a lot of product but I think different uses will render different results. I initially apply my foundation with the Real Techniques Perfecting Brush then finish blending with the ELF sponge. It gives me an airbrushed effect that keeps my foundation and concealer from settling into my fine lines on my forehead and under my eyes. Although I've tried several primers, it still wind up with makeup settling ESPECIALLY in my forehead. Because it is such a soft sponge, it will start to show wear after a few washes but it isn't enough to require frequent new purchases. Out of all of my less expensive sponges, this is my favorite.

Note: the Real Techniques Perfecting Brush works miracles alone with foundation coverage. I only began using the sponge after my pesky fine lines popped up.

Good but not.

By Marty

from Alabama

Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Blending Sponge:

I wanted to try all the sponges to find the perfect one for me. At first I really did like this one, it is super soft and that's really all the pros I have for it. It's too soft. It soaks up product, foundation is one thing I spend extra money on so that aspect was not ideal. Like others have said, it's too big, so hard to get around the corners of the eyes. Since it soaks up product, my foundation looks patchy. It takes a while to even it all out.

I will say, I used this one to apply a bronzer around my face for Halloween. So perhaps this will work better for powders because it did pretty decent.

Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Blending Sponge:

I bought this a little while ago to test out the new and improved version. I love it! It's super soft and great for bouncing in foundation and concealer. I haven't touched my real techniques one since I bought this!

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Blending Sponge:

    Since I'm afraid of bacteria, I only use my sponges a week and then replace it. I like this design because the bottom is perfect for my foundation and I use one side of the top for blending my foundation in the 'skinny' areas and then use the other side of the 'skinny' top for highlighting.

    I've use all shapes and sizes, and by far, love this the best!

    So Disappointed!

    By random

    from Winnipeg, MB, Canada

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Blending Sponge:

    I bought this hoping it was a dupe for the beauty blender, but it for sure was not. It is hard and dense, it soaks up all of my foundation, and it is impossible to blend. It works neither dry nor damp. All in all it was such a waste of money. I DO NOT recommend this product.

    game-changer

    By Amber Rose

    from California, United States

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Blending Sponge:

    I didn't realize how bad my old sponge was until I started using this one. Super soft and applies makeup beautifully! The only drawback is that it's a bit too big to get into the inner corners of my eyes, so I have to squish it down into a better shape.

    The foam is too hard. Prefer beautyblender

    Pros

    • Cruelty-Free

    Cons

    • Too firm

    Best Uses

    • Liquid

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Blending Sponge:

    I was hoping to find a cheaper substitute for the beautyblender, but the beautyblender's foam is softer and more pleasant to use. My second choice is still the Real Techniques "miracle complexion sponge." That one is only two dollars more but again, the foam is more flexible.
