Blends out my foundation and concealer well. It's not like those cheap sponges that you have to throw out after a few months. I can see myself repurchasing this in the future when I need a replacement.
I bought it thinking it would be an alternative to other beauty blender-type sponges. Since it is rough in texture it really gets into where those acne scars dip down and can be difficult to fill ink, and it did a good job with my foundation. The shape is also pretty good for blending out the under eye concealer. The problem is that it fell apart. One time I had black bits on my face, but I was in a rush and had used a black eyeshadow that tends to have a lot of fallout so I didn't think about it. Until I went to wash it for the first time and it just began to fall apart so I just tossed it in the trash.

The sponge is a lot smaller than it looks in the picture. It's also very firm. I wish it was larger, for what it cost.

Ok so first I was skeptical, don't get me wrong! I love NYX's lipstick! But that's all I'd tried. I've used other blenders before and they didn't cut it for me, plus I had to use more than one! This blender gives me life!!! It's got a beautiful design, it feels good in your hand, It flawlessly applies primer, foundation, lotion! And it cleans like a dream!!!
My only issue is like someone previously stated I bought mine a few weeks ago and the clean cut edge at the top is crumbling away!!! And it saddens me because I've had it less than a month! But I'm thinking it's from a bad batch because my sisters is still perfect and she got hers AGES ago!

This sponge absorbs every drop of foundation and doesn't apply anything to the face at all.

I've heard others say they liked a NYX sponge so I thought why not try this one! Well , I regret buying it. Way to stiff!!! Plus you get no coverage!!! My very cheap ELF sponge does 100% better job. I expect a sponge to soak up some foundation, but not all of it!!

Beauty blender so flawless, I had to buy 6! It really is amazing and definitely a bargain.

I heard Nyx had a good sponge but it couldn't have been this one. it was super hard and stiff & very uncomfortable to use for foundation. I do think the angle could be great for baking but overall, hated this sponge.

In the past year I had 2 of thees. The first one was amazing, so I bought one more. The resent one (which I bough in June) is more dense and the quality decreased. It started to have white spots thou I wash it with gentle soap as I did with the first one. The material is different. The first one was more soft and fluffy, the new one reminds me of those cheep "plasticky" sponges. Overall, it is usable and does a good job.

Works well for my skin, leaves a smooth finish. I also like having a nice alternative to pricier options.

I normally use RT sponges but I opted for this one during a recent sale. My first few uses were meh, I found I needed to used more of a dab dab motion than I do with my RT sponges - which I use more of a parting motion... if that makes sense lol. Now that I have figured it out I haven't gone back to my RT!

This sponge is great! I haven't tried the beauty blender but I'm sure I won't be needing to buy one. This sponge blends everything in perfectly. Plus it is easy to clean!

It kinda absorbs a lot of products

I'd heard great things about this sponge, so I wanted to give it a try. Initial impressions were good, though it's definitely more firm than my Beauty Blender or L'Oreal sponge. But I like the shape for getting around my eyes. I would have given this more stars based on initial impressions, except it's disintegrating! I've only had it for three months, and it gets less use than my other sponges that are holding up just fine after far more time and abuse. But the finer end is crumbling, leaving black bits all over my face. I can't use it anymore. I don't know if I have a bad one, or if this is common.

I bought this beauty blender, and I am happy with the result. It isn't the highest quality but for the price it is worth it. Would recommend if you are on a budget.
Alyss from Ca
I can't figure out a way I can use this because it flakes little black pieces everywhere. I washed it a couple of times thinking it was just a layer but it won't stop. I hate it. I'll just keep repurchasing rt and la girl.

Great product, bought if about a month ago and don't regret it.
Shan from Florida
This sponge was hard and scratchy and left little black pieces all over my face. I'll use in a pinch but would not repurchase

Very stiff. Would not repurchase. Nothing compared to the original beauty blender.
Sara from California
I love this spong! It soft and is the prefect size when it is wet. I also love the shape because it great for blending foundation under the eyes and on the sides of the nose.

I bought this a month ago and have been using it since, it's super easy to use and applies my foundation smoothly and evenly. My only complaint is that it's a little tough to clean, but overall, most of it does come clean.

I only grabbed this because it ended up being $4 on sale. I usually get the real techniques one. I love this so much more than the real techniques one. It just has better quality and applied everything so much better.

I was very surprised at how much I loved this sponge. I actually love it more than my real techniques one. it's more firm and spongey *no pun intended*
jmashley from Worcester, NY
This sponge would be amazing if it didn't fall apart while using it. I keep getting black pieces all over my face with every use. It is soft and applies like a BB or Rt sponge, but it sheds like crazy.
