        Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

        I mistakenly bought this thinking it was the Real Techniques sponge, however, I am so glad I did! It blended my concealer and contour with ease. It is the right shape and fits perfectly for the eye area. I typically use it wet because I find it blends best that way. I only gave it 4 stars because it does stain and it's a bit hard to clean but with a good soap it should be fine, I definitely recommend it!

            good sponge for the price

            By ChuihCat

            from Fl

            Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

            The sponge is a tad bit harder than the Orange sponge from real techniques. It doesn't soak up any more or less foundation than the others. Will buy this one and the real technique in the future over the more expensive one.

            Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

            I love this little blender! I use it for BB Cream, concealer, and liquid highlighter. I get it damp first and then blend away. Great for reaching tight spaces and a real time saver. Only complaint it that it stains easily.

            Works pretty good and was cheap. I use it for liquid foundation and liquid concealer, along with blending for contouring. Sucks up a lot of product sometimes. But very smooth application and soft for sensitive skin.

              Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

              I went in to Ulta looking for a sponge to replace my old one. To my surprise I found the Expert Complexion Sponge by Studio Basics. It has a good price, it comes in great colors, the shape allows me to hold it comfortably, and the pointy end really gets into hard to get places. I liked it so much I bought two.
