Get your quick beauty fix with this all-in-one Quickie Blending Sponge. It effortlessly applies cream concealers, foundations and contouring formulas and is ideal for blending the multi-tasking shape tape contour concealer without creasing into fine lines. For natural, buildable coverage, apply the soft sponge wet or dry, using the larger domed side to cover redness, discolorations and uneven skin tone. The opposite precision tip can mask acne and dark spots, while blending around smaller areas of the face, like the nose, brow bone and undereye. You can also use it to blend out your contour and highlight, pressing the tapered side along angles of the face to mimic shadow and light. Designed for quick, mess-free applications, this versatile, travel friendly sponge is durable and washable so you can use it again and again for an effortless, everyday look.

This all-in-one blending sponge effortlessly applies cream concealers, foundations and contouring formulas and is ideal for blending the multi-tasking shape tape contour concealer (sold separately) for full coverage and contouring.

To cover & perfect:
  • Dot concealer directly over blemishes, dark spots or other imperfections and use the narrow, tapered side of the sponge to dab and blend.
  • To cover redness or uneven skin tone, apply concealer directly onto skin and blend using the larger, domed end of the sponge.
  • To offset the look of dark circles, trace concealer onto undereye area in a "triangle of light" formation and blend using the narrow side of the sponge.

To contour & highlight:
  • Trace concealer in light, thin lines directly onto areas you want to highlight and contour, such as the cheekbones, forehead, chin and nose.
  • Use the narrow, pointed side of sponge to blend formula into skin in the direction of the lines you traced. The larger, domed side can be used to soften any harsh lines.
  • Wear concealer 1-2 shades darker for creamy contouring and 1-2 shade lighter as a luminous highlighter.

Tarteist tip: For light, natural coverage, apply the sponge dry. For fuller coverage, you can use water or a setting spray to dampen the sponge.

      Best beauty blender I've ever had! The shape is unique and makes getting to the awkward place (around my nose and eyes) super easy! Cleans easily and doesn't lose any shape! Love love love!

        Bought this thinking it would be amazing, but it's so hard, even after getting it wet! And does not apply evenly. Ended up returning it.

          I bought this on Black Friday! I absolutely hate it. It doesn't apply evenly. It's super dense so it doesn't pick up much product. Made me look super patchy!! I am just gonn though it away. I have so much better ones that were even cheaper.

          Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Quickie Blending Sponge:

          I have never understood the beauty blender fad. I have tried every sponge under the sun and just didn't know why someone would want to spend the money on something that just sucks in bacteria and soaks up all your product! However, I was very surprised to see how dense and textured this new sponge by tarte was. I'm glad I risked the purchase. I haven't used a foundation brush in MONTHS. I'm mad for this product, and when it comes back in stock, I'm buying FIFTY.

            I've never left a review in my life but this sponge is incredible. Applies makeup like a dream and does not have to be damp! I hated using other sponges that I had to run under water and then squeeze the excess off! Absolutely worth the price.
