          I use this one for foundation but I think it might be better for contouring. I like the tear drop ones the best for that purpose.

              Not a good beauty blender dupe

                  Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

                  This is definitely not the best beauty blender dupe. It expands in size when soaked in water and seems like it does a decent job, however it absorbs way more makeup than it distributes. I noticed I had to use a lot more product when using this sponge compared to my beauty blender. I still want to try the Real Techniques sponge to see if that is a better dupe. :(
                  I still use this to blend out my bronzer since it distributes/absorbs the product so it helps make the bronzer look blended well into my skin. Other wise, don't use for foundation.

                    I use to product to apply and distribute my foundation and bb cream. It makes for a smooth and even coverage. I do with the other end were less pointed so I didn't have to apply with the side of it for large areas

                      Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

                      It soaks up more make up in the sponge than it lets you put on your face. As long as your face is drenched in make up, and the brush has been heavily used, it works fine. It's alright for a make up sponge, but I wouldn't recommend it.
