      The product is a wast of money. When applying the makeup to the face it goes on then stays darker in sections

        Comments about Studio Basics Expert Complexion Sponge:

        I bought this to replace my old beauty blender. I originally was going after the Real Techniques brand, however the store closest to me was sold out. I purchased this one instead. It absorbs too much product. It would be okay for a very light coverage (maybe bb cream or tinted moisturizer).

            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.

              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!
