    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

          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.

              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.

                  I loved this! I thought it worked amazing and went great with my foundation. It washes right out to keep it super clean! It has curved sides for large areas and points for the creases on your face. It is AMAZING!

                      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.
