    Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

    I have used this consistently for a couple weeks now. So far so good. I have used another dupe and it was hard and slippery. This on the other hand was soft, accepted the foundation but did not drink it in. I used a tap and roll application to apply the foundation. The coverage was light and not cakey. Was easy to rinse after each use.

        I didnt like this at all. I got it to help apply my foundation, but the make up just soaked into the sponge. I would not recommend this to any one.

        You could spend tons more on a similar product but you'd be wasting your money. Beautiful blending, great coverage.

          I had never used a sponge to put on my makeup and really was reluctent to try, but Ulta staff member encouraged me to try and I'm so glad I did. You wet the sponge (just damp) and use to apply makeup. The finish is beautiful. This was also very inexpensive.

          Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

          I have troubled skin, so I'm not sure why this is breaking people out. I've repurchased it twice and it's amazing. I've tried expensive brushes and sponges but always come back to this one.

                Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

                I usually use a latex free generic blender from Ulta but they were out so I bought this one. It caused my makeup to get cakey like an hour after application. I'm not sure why, I applied the exact same way I usually apply my makeup. It also absorbed too much product. Didn't seem to help blend my liquid foundation well. I also didn't understand how to apply my foundation to the large parts of my face (cheeks, forehead); there is no flat surface on the applicator. Was really odd

                  I have never used the beauty blender, but when I was researching to see which ones are good, this came at a 2nd place and for the difference in price between the two $14, I thought this was worth a shot and I was not disappointed.

                  The only think and just like any other brush or sponge, it is important to clean it after 1-3 uses as it does stain.

                    Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

                    The sponge was definitely easy to use and went on well. Unfortunately, my skin is rather sensitive. After I bought this sponge, I rinsed it out a few times and there was a lot of bubbles, so I KNEW that there was some sort of chemical involved. I was in a rush so I just went on using it anyways and didn't wash my face until bed that night. the next morning I woke up with a few massive pimples (not white heads or black heads, the really painful ones that are massive and red and you just have to wait for them to go away so I knew it was irritation). The sponge itself works well, just make sure to really clean it prior to use.
