Comments about ULTA Oval Blending Sponge:

i rarely wear foundation but when i use i use this sponge to apply it on. i have oily combination skin so my tones are oily and this helps absorb it and apply foundation at the same time.

Comments about ULTA Oval Blending Sponge:

I LOVE this product and when I'm at Ulta, I will buy ALL of the sponges on the shelf because it's often sold out. I have three back-up in my drawer right now. It's sturdy, blends better than any other product, blends multiple products together nicely without lifting them off, and it's shape and texture are ideal for my skin.

The only caveats are that oil will build up on it, it stains quickly (because it's holding the product well) and it's hard to get clean so must be replaced fairly often to get maximum benefit, but it's inexpensive so that's ok. I wish I could find a cleanser that cleaned away build-up better because then this would be an absolutely perfect product.

      Comments about ULTA Oval Blending Sponge:

      I use this makeup sponge with my pressed mineral compact. It offers great coverage so I don't have to use as much product. It's super absorbent though so when I clean the sponge it takes some effort to get all the soap out. I would likely purchase it again or possibly buy an ULTA brand sponge in a different size.

            Even when wet, adsorbs way to much product. Too stiff and hard to clean.

                      This sponge works so well, I went back to Ulta and bought the three they had in stock in case it was discontinued. That happened with the previous sponge I used and it was difficult to find a sponge I liked. This sponge blends makeup so it goes on very smoothly. Also, the pores of the sponge are small, so you waste less makeup than in other types of sponges. Love it!
