        The best I've used so far- although I have not tried the Beauty Blender. You do need to be careful when cleaning because it does tear easily if pulled too hard other than that I love it

        Comments about Stila Double Ended Blending Sponge:

        I bought this sponge for the first time over a year ago. I loved it. I have never had any issues with tearing or too much product absorption. Hmmm....i can say the first time I used it, it did take quite a lot of water and squeezing to get it to a workable feel. I replace it ever 3months. Not cause it's ripped or nasty looking. Just because I feel that's a good time frame to replace for my foundation purposes. I usually repurpose the older ones for cream contouring and blushes. I clean my makeup tools every Sunday. I feel like my brushes have more product rinsing out when I clean them than this sponge. I will say though, every sponge has a surface stain from my foundation on it. But all in all this is a wonderful applicator. If used properly. I think the price is just fine for this item. And the coverage it gets is pretty great. I have dry to normal skin.(more dry). This sponge really gives my face a nice smooth coverage.

          Comments about Stila Double Ended Blending Sponge:

          The product was recommended and demonstrated on the back of my hand by a cosmetic sales clerk. She was very knowledgeable about the product and explained the design. But when I attempted to apply the foundation, it would have taken an excessive amount to get a minimum coverage. The sponge is to be dampened and used to smooth/apply foundation, but instead seemed to absorb instead of applying. I decided it would make a great cleaning tool in the bathroom (around faucets and in corners) but, alas, I felt that was to much to pay for use. I also considered it to not be very sanitary, absorbed to much foundation and after washing it, seeing all that washed out and still unable to get clear water. I am not a germaphobic, but I returned this product as not safe to my skin.

              Didn't like it because it ripped trying to wash it before I used it for the first time so I returned it and got another one I had to return that one too because the same thing happened it's too sensitive

                Bought this blender about 6 months ago. I love using it wet. Makes for smooth finish when blending and contouring. It does end up tearing, so it's time to purchase another one, but overall I'm satisfied getting 6 months out of the product! Way better than the cheap ones!

                  I loved the stila sponge. I only used it once and must have hit it off my bathroom sink; because its gone and I think my dogs ate it. No worries...going to buy another one!

                    Don't get this. Mine started to split after the 1st use. Save your money & get the Real Techniques Miracle Sponge, which is only $6. (And I love it!)

                        When dampened, Stila Double Ended Blending Sponge becomes softer but remains the same size.

                        A:

                        The sponge should be replaced every 6 months. To extend its life and keep it sanitary, clean it weekly with a mild soap, lightly or non-fragranced.
