Amazing product

By Ami

Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

I hardly review anything but I figure this product is worth it. I bought it a while ago thinking I would give sponges a try (I usually stick to my brushes). When I first bought it I had no idea how to use it so I wasn't that impressed by it lol I didn't know you were supposed to use it damp! Well one day, way after realizing my mistake I used it correctly and wow! There was a major difference! I love the way it blends my foundation and concealer. I have tried other sponges around the same price range as this one and none of them are as good as this one! You will not be disappointed! Just remember to use it damp lol

          The product is a wast of money. When applying the makeup to the face it goes on then stays darker in sections

            I bought this to replace my old beauty blender. I originally was going after the Real Techniques brand, however the store closest to me was sold out. I purchased this one instead. It absorbs too much product. It would be okay for a very light coverage (maybe bb cream or tinted moisturizer).

                Wow! I previously purchases the Ulta brand beauty blender dupe and hadn't used one before so I didnt know the difference anyway! I ended up throwing it out only because I had it for a while and it was grungy, I decided to pick up this one instead because it was pink...only to find out that WOW it works wonders, it soak up water perfectly to use damp. It is super soft and basically molds to whatever are you are blending. LOVE! Def buy again.

                  Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

                  I got this sponge one night in Ulta for no reason at all. I just thought I'd give it a try and the price was too good to pass up. Let's just say, I LOVE THIS SPONGE! I wouldn't mind spending $20 for a product that works but this sponge is so much cheaper than the beauty blender and it works the same way. I bought it for the first time back in November and have repurchased it back in April. I have both sponges today and both work perfectly. I use one for foundation and the other for concealer. You cannot get any better than this. I'm for sure buying more once these two give up.

                    I am using this for my foundation and concealer. My makeup looks SO much better and blended well. This helps cover my dark circles sooo much better than my fingers and blends in so I don't have the raccoon look. All you do is soak it in water, squeeze well, and pounce your foundation in.
