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 Double Duty Beauty 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 Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Contour Concealer 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.

Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Quickie Blending Sponge:

I truly like the Real Techniques beauty sponges a lot better than this sponge. I normally love everything from Tarte, which is why I decided to give this a try. However, I find that I use more makeup with this beauty sponge and I also think that it gives uneven application. Not the worst, but definitely not my favorite.

    Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Quickie Blending Sponge:

    I really love this beauty sponge ! I never thought I'd find something I love as much as the beauty blender , yet here I found the Tarte sponge. It's the same shape as the Real Techniques sponge , but the texture for me is better : its softer, easier to blend, not stiff and doesn't soak up my product. Really glad I purchased it! The only con, when it's wet , there is a odd "squishing " sound . Just make sure all excess water is completely squeezed out before you , and you wash the sponge before hand.

      Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Quickie Blending Sponge:

      I didn't need this high priced application sponge, but I had the entire foundation line and wanted to increase the effectiveness of the product. I'm not sorry. This sponge is the best application sponge I've ever owned.

                Comments about Tarte Double Duty Beauty Quickie Blending Sponge:

                This sponge is great!!! You add water to it & it gets huge! Way bigger than any other sponge. It also hasn't torn during washing like other sponges do (only washed 3x's so far), and it applies great. When it's wet, you can even stand it on the flat end.
                Anyway, I was most curious about the material & how it would feel. When I first picked it up, it felt super hard. But water changes that. This material is close to the RT sponge material, but seems to be stronger. I prefer it to the RT sponge & the Beautyblender. Price sucks, but we'll see how long it holds up. So far so good!

                  I purchased the original Tarte beauty blender, which ran its course. When I went to repurchase I found this one, and it's so much better. Very soft and malleable, so less streaking. I always splash water on it before applying foundation, that's the secret! Will definitely buy this one again.

                      Would I be able to only use this for small areas like my undereye or is it too big? I'm thinking of ordering it online but I just want to make sure, just incase.
