Not a good beauty blender dupe

Pros

  • Blends Out Ok

Cons

    Best Uses

      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.

        Soaks up Makeup

        Best Uses

          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.

                This sponge is great for stippling CC cream, foundation, and concealer into my skin. I like the way it blends the product and appreciate that it's so inexpensive. The sponge is easy to clean and great for everyday use.

                  Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

                  I haven't tried the name brand Beauty Blender, but I was in the market for a knockoff and this was ridiculously cheap. So, I picked it up, thought I'd take it for a test run. And its amazing. Wet it before you use it and wring it out, and you'll be so happy with the results. Effortless blending of liquid foundation- makes a little go a longer way. Using it for setting powder reduces that chalky look you can sometimes get from using powder. Also, ideal for touch ups. Fantastic.

                  After trying the real techniques sponge and finding out that I'm allergic to it, I was skeptical that this sponge would work, but it does! It's not magical or life changing but I ft certainly does a wonderful job.

                    I use this sponge very often and it performs just as well as the Real Technique and others. Very good for getting around eyes and nose.
