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

I used it to apply my liquid foundation. It's so much faster to apply & it goes on evenly. 😊
First one I've actually liked!
Natasha from WV
I've tried the real techniques blenders and other brands, they didn't work for me. It seemed like they took more foundation off my face than it put on. Not the case with this one! I still prefer a brush, but this did a good job! I just can't seem to get full coverage with a blender sponge.
Something is different
beachywaves from Coastal NC
I have had probably 15+ BeautyBlender Pros over the years and my most recently purchased one is just different. It gets bigger when wet and the texture doesn't feel as soft or bouncy, it feels more like a knock-off BeautyBlender in my opinion. This is the first time I've ever purchased from ULTA, I normally get them elsewhere.
Best Beauty Tool
PoshP from Maplewood, NJ
Always love the sponge beauty blender. Allows you to titration your coverage evenly with with moisture. I'm a particular fan of the black sponge because my makeup camouflages well once used.
Adri from Tulsa, OK
I wet it for the first time and tiny black flakes were left all over my hands. I didn't even use soap. Returning it for sure. So disappointed after hearing everyone rave about the OG sponge smh
Vanessa from Texas
I use it for face makeup and I love it!
Fell apart after the first use.
Joyce from Ocean Springs Mississippi
Used with bare minerals liquid foundation.
Not worth it....
Lexi from Michigan
It was good for blending and that's it
Why didn't anyone tell me about this?
Jpearl from Cleveland ohio
I truly had no idea how much better the beauty blender brand is than my drug store sponges, Game changer for sure!
Expensive for a beauty blender!
Kait from IL
I really liked this beauty blender but I usually reach for the cheaper orange beauty blenders, because they're so affordable. I tried this sponge and really enjoyed it, but it's unrealistic to pay this for one sponge!

Second Time Purchase
Sarah from Lubbock, TX
Love love love! Use it wet or dry and cleans well. Super durable and have been using it for months. Prefer the way this one blends over the pink original. I love it so much I purchase it for female family members getting into makeup.
Not sure what happened
Elena from New Mexico
This is the first time I've tried the black sponge, so maybe there actually is a difference between the black and the original because this does NOT apply the way I'm used to with beautyblender. Seems to soak up product and get dry much quicker than before, and my makeup looks cakey and less natural than before. I hope the "formula" hasn't changed for all the sponges, because the original is my holy grail of makeup applicators.
Ok but wouldn't buy again.
Kay from LA
This is an over priced sponge but I mean it does apply makeup nicely. The real technique one I've been using for years, more then less than half the price, works better and faster. This one takes longer to blend but I do like the pointy tip to get in the inner corner of eye area. This is good but I won't buy again when there are much more affordable options that perform better.
Does the job
Victoria from Arkansas
I didn't use the old style of Beauty Blenders, seeing other reviews says that they've changed? But this gets the job done and makes my makeup look wonderful. Easy to clean and works well!
Not sure yet...
Heyjude from Marina Del Rey, Ca.
I really enjoy doing foundation with a brush. So I just really need some practice with the beauty blender.
Not the same
Ctruelove from Anaheim hills
I bought this online recently and noticed right away that it felt different. Did they shrink too? I thought I must have bought a different brand but no it's the same.
A little disappointing.
New Version Sucks
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
jenna from mi
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!
G from CA
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.
