Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing! Better than real techniques!
The real techniques sponge I always have to replace every two or less months. I love the beauty blender it's one of the best investments in my makeup I've made. I use to use the pink one which I loved I used it for about a year and a half and cleaned it consistently and it never tore or failed me when applying my foundation.
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed
I usually love this beauty blender but the one i received doesn't expand very much it's a lot smaller than my old one. I checked to see if i had purchased the mini by mistake but i hadn't. I love beauty blenders but this one just disappointed me bc i like a larger surface to put on my foundation

Angie from Portland, OR
This new version and a pumice are the same thing. Very porous and rough, this new beautyblender sponge is good only to remove calluses or wash greasy pans. Cheap material. This brand got just reputation and now is selling just the brand name but items are trash, literally. Obviously it was RETURNED!
Best beauty blender !
Aweah from Austin
I've been using my beauty blender for almost a year now :0 bc i didn't wanna spend $20 on another one! It did the job! I actually took care of my baby and cleaned it every time I used it. And not only that I just decided time for a new blender :,( had to say good bye 👋
Gets moldy no matter what
natcat from California
First bb I ever bought was pink, lasted forever, and never got moldy after months of use. Decided to get the black one months later and it had a different texture. It was more rough and porous than the first one I had. I still used it but it was the worst mistake. Soon after the first use, it started smelling funky despite me washing it after every use and letting it air dry before storing. Little did I know it was covered in mold. It's hard to see because the bb is black but I discovered this because I got an allergic reaction around my eyes only (the only place I use the bb) and because I had a lighter colored bb that got moldy really fast. My bf bought me two elf beauty sponges and they feel like the bb USED to feel. Two days after using the elf sponge, my allergic reaction due to mold on the bb started going away.
not the best

the texture is rough but it blends good
Gloriajae from Philly
What happened??? Where is the beautyblender that I knew and loved??? Picked one up from Ulta today (always bought the Black one) And after opening, I immediately noticed that it looked different, felt different and applied different... I went ahead and use it despite what I saw and I HATED the application. It's not the smooth bouncy Beautyblender that I used to love. It's been a while since I purchased once... at least 2 years, and I'm really not happy with it and I doubt I can return it after using.
Love how it blends!
nenn from Ewa Beach, HI
I've been using my fingers to always apply foundation but I finally decided to buy this since it has multiple functions in applying makeup. So far it has worked to my benefit and I would highly recommend!

Felt Like Cheap Material and Blended Like Cheap material so cakey. Felt like the sponge you get from cheap Halloween makeup 👎🏻
Not as good as the normal beauty blender
Delaney from NYC
I bought this thinking it wouldn't show foundation stains as much as my regular beauty blender but it's a totally different texture. It's coarse and doesn't at all blend my foundation in a flattering way. I've ended up using the smaller blender intended for blush I bought alongside it to do my whole face instead. Splurge fail.
Ivonne from Texas
This is my favorite high end sponge to date. Very bouncy. Blends makeup effortlessly. Easy to clean. I love this sponge. Great buy, and I will continue to buy this sponge!
I would buy again
Kate from Sacramento
Beauty blender is honestly the best thing ever. Usually when I use a regular foundation brush it leaves marks and cracks, but not the beauty blender.
Awful product - Waste of Money
Andrea from Saint Louis
Recently I brought makeup and a few makeup tools including a beauty blender Pro that is a real waste of money and time. Just opened from the package and used once and is going to be the ONLY time because it practically felt apart in my face by little pieces of sponge.
Samantha from California
This is my third black pro. It is leaving black specks on my face. Really disappointed. Typically love this one but this last purchase it seems the quality has gone down.
BB from Houston Texas
I've lost this beauty blender twice! :( and every time I think I can live without it. Never works. So I buy it again and again. I'm glad they actually came out with case to put them back because they're small and easy to lose.
Alexis from Virginia
I'm not sure what it is about this sponge but it works better than the pink one. I have various beautyblenders but the pro applies products better, especially powders. I do feel that it does not get as big as the pink when wet but works great.
What happened to the Original Pro Blender
Joana from Burleson Texas
I have been in LOVE with the Pro blender for YEARS! & now i don't even want to use it !! Idk what happen with the manufacturing of the new batch but it's HORRIBLE! Does not blend well! I would rather use a brush
This is for DARK toned products (contour etc.)
A from Elk Grove
I don't think this is made for foundation at all but for contour it's amazing!
Erin from Fort Lauderdale, FL
I forst got a Beautyblender in my FabFitFun box about a year and a half ago and I have loved it ever since. I prefer the black to the original pink as the make-up doesn't seem to stain it as much. Also, when I was using the pink one whenever I washed it it also lost some of the pink dye in the process, which always made me question how much of that transferred to my skin. I don't find that the black ones run like that.
Bad texture from Queens , New York
I've been buying this sponge for years and all of a sudden the texture changed and it doesn't perform the same I'm really disappointed in the new texture it has it's not as smooth and neither is the application for me it has worked better dry than damp
Willa from Pennsylvania
I've used the BB pro since it came out and it applied foundation flawlessly! The sponge was always soft, slightly dense and bouncy. The BB I purchased yesterday is awfully rough and has the worst texture...my foundation applied so spotchy and half of it was absorbed by the sponge. I am aware this is inherent to the sponge application but trust me when I say it absorbed more so than my old BB pro. I usually purchased my BB pro from another store, so I thought maybe it was just stock at Ulta but I read the reviews from that store and it seems people are having the same issue. I will immediately be returning this. Don't waste your money. BB if you are reading these reviews please go back to your old formulation!!!!!!

Unfortunately, the black blender I purchased shed little black pieces all over my face. I washed & cleansed it several times but nothing helped. I returned for a pink one and it worked just fine - no shedding.
Why has this changed?
Scarlet from Brick NJ
I loved the old beauty blender, it applied foundation and concealer like a dream. This one is made from a different material and it feels cheaper and takes longer to blend with less coverage
Didn't feel like it was a real beauty blender
Tanya from Seattle, WA
It wasn't soft or bouncy like the beauty blender I had before. It left weird patches on my face after blending foundation with it.
Abby from Oklahoma
I needed to repurchase my beauty blender and the outside of the sponge has spots where I can almost pull off bits of the sponge? Like it's pilling up and going to shed in a way
LOVE this sponge!
Kekers from Rancho Cordova, CA
I use this product to blend my foundation and bake. I normally use it after applying my foundation with a brush. It works soo well! I do wish the price point was lower. Especially since there are multiple brands with new sponges coming out at a lower price.
The texture is awful!
Sisanta from Santa Fe, NM
I have been using the BB for years now especially the black one which I loved more. I recently bought one at Ulta and the texture was awful!!!! I used it and it did not blend my makeup what so ever! I don't know if it was a bad batch, but I've never had this problem before! I went back to ulta and bought the pink one and had.no problems. Very upsetting sense the black was my fav.
