    Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

    Wow! I previously purchases the Ulta brand beauty blender dupe and hadn't used one before so I didnt know the difference anyway! I ended up throwing it out only because I had it for a while and it was grungy, I decided to pick up this one instead because it was pink...only to find out that WOW it works wonders, it soak up water perfectly to use damp. It is super soft and basically molds to whatever are you are blending. LOVE! Def buy again.

      Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

      I got this sponge one night in Ulta for no reason at all. I just thought I'd give it a try and the price was too good to pass up. Let's just say, I LOVE THIS SPONGE! I wouldn't mind spending $20 for a product that works but this sponge is so much cheaper than the beauty blender and it works the same way. I bought it for the first time back in November and have repurchased it back in April. I have both sponges today and both work perfectly. I use one for foundation and the other for concealer. You cannot get any better than this. I'm for sure buying more once these two give up.

        I am using this for my foundation and concealer. My makeup looks SO much better and blended well. This helps cover my dark circles sooo much better than my fingers and blends in so I don't have the raccoon look. All you do is soak it in water, squeeze well, and pounce your foundation in.

          I love this sponge! It works so well when damp. I really love it with the garnier bb cream. It blends flawlessly into the face, much better than any brush I've used! I was very impressed when I first used it. Not to mention this price is so much better than spending on the original beauty blender.

              It's soft and works best wet. It blends well without taking the makeup off. The contours work perfectly for every area of the face.

                I bought this product for the same reasons that everyone else is. I REFUSE to pay $20 on the "real thing" . This product is definitely a dupe, I don't have any problems what so ever out of it and I recommend this product without a doubt to everyone. My foundation applies flawless. Works for liquid, powder, and thick concealer. It blends very well. You won't be disappointed. I even hear people rant and rave about how the "real thing" gets huge and really soft after you wet it, and how it feels so great on your skin. Well this is the exact same. Hands down, holy grail item. You'll love!

                  This sponge is a lot better than the $20 Beauty Blender. It is cheaper and works the same way. It blends well and you can get into corners and hard to reach places with the pointy end. The sponge is easy to clean too. Its great to layer on makeup as well. I love this sponge. Its miraculous how easily it allows makeup to blend into your skin. The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is because its only been a month since I've been using it so I dont know if its long lasting or not. So far, it hasnt gotten any tears or anything in it. I def recommend this, and its so inexpensive!

                      I absolutely love this for my liquid foundation and liquid concealer. For the best result use it damped. Overall, it was a good purchase, especially for the price.
