How to Use
Rated 3.64 out of 5 stars
I actually enjoy this sponge for my liquid foundation and blush. Like other reviewers noted, the key is to use this sponge damp. When it's damp, this really makes my foundations look wonderful and it's very easy to apply to makeup. It's too hard when it's dry to do much. The sponge also stains almost right away - I haven't been able to make it look clean since the first use. However, it doesn't seem to impact the sponge's ability to blend out my makeup, and I haven't had any issues with tearing. The real downside of this sponge is it's shape. It works fine, but it does make it harder to go near the eyes and a rounded shape would be better for blush. However, it's still cute and works well, so I do think it's worth the price tag.
I loved this blender at first and I personally love the marshmallow shape and use the flat head to stipple and buff out product.
Unfortunately after a month of use it's already starting to tear. Which is surprising since it's actually much denser than most of my beauty blenders. I clean it no differently than I do my other blenders and they still in tact no rips or tears.
I'm sad this does not last that long since I did enjoy using it. This was my first nyx blender so I probably won't buy another one from them.

This is my absolute favorite beauty blender of all time!!! I have acne, textured skin and big pores, so I have to apply a good layer of foundation and concealer to cover everything. I prefer to apply with a brush for coverage, but I always seem to end up with the dreaded CAKEFACE.
However, now, after my foundation is applied, I simply stamp this little miracle over top of my face before I set it, and it improves the texture of my makeup WITHOUT COMPROMISING COVERAGE!!! I can even go over problem areas after it is set and it is like a *blurring tool*.
If I could buy a truckload of these, I totally would! I'd give one to every woman I know, and I literally have YET to use it damp!

It's more dense than a beauty blender but it does the same thing and I've washed it at least 10 times and it goes back to looking new every time. It does take longer to dry than a beauty blender, I imagine it's due to the shape, but I don't see that as a problem as long as you rinse with cold water.

I love a good makeup sponge and this is not one of them. I tried it with my primer and found it unhelpful. Tried it with my foundation and it worked even worse

After using it once on a clean moisturized face, it looked dirty

The blender at first looked really small and I was shocked, but then I took it out and it slightly expanded from being compressed. I then put water on it and it became a good size for my ideal. It's easy to use and gets in touch places.

Super cute blender. I had a feeling it wasn't going to do the best job, or even last long at that. The first wash the foundation barely came out and on top of the it got a hole and started to rip. At that point I didn't even want it anymore and just threw it away.

Its so cute. I love the texture. I just wish it was bigger

Obviously the shape is super cute, but the fact that it has a flat edge without any type of narrowed point or edge makes it very difficult to use in corners and creases. Density wise, this is on the hard side, but it does a decent job of stippling and sheering on flat surfaces.

I love this cute little sponge. It works perfectly to apply my primer.

I would rather use a real marshmallow than this blender! it's very cute and they had the opportunity to make it super soft and squishy, like a marshmallow, but instead it's super hard and stiff and there is nothing I hate more than a hard sponge. it's frustrating to use and doesn't blend or apply the makeup well. sorry NYX, but this was a miss.
Audrey from San Francisco
I got this blender because I heard many great things about it. I was a little nervous because it was super tiny in the box, but once I put water in it it got rly big and squishy! I love this so much! It applies my makeup super smoothly, and I love how bouncy it is!

Not gonna lie it's adorable and I was dying to buy it at first, but the shape is weird in a way that it's hard to get makeup on easy and it's not the best material out there.
yadi from houston
This is just a hyped up sponge that does not have a function for me. It went to the trash after seeing that it does not make the makeup apply well.

This is cute, but not really a must-have. The little heart on it is a nice touch.

When I first seen this blender, I was both intrigued and skeptical. Intrigued because it caught my attention with the odd shape and how extremely cute it was, but skeptical because there was no way a sponge shaped like this was getting underneath and in the corner of my eyes... well I was wrong! The marsh mellow sponge is SO soft! It doesn't absorb the product, blends foundation out beautifully (I used it with the Rare Beauty foundation), and it actually gets in the corners and under-eyes PERFECTLY! I actually had an easier time blending out my Rare Beauty foundation with this sponge than a beauty blender and a real techniques sponge. I haven't tried with any other foundations yet (I chose that one specifically because it's a little harder to work with, blending out wise), but color me impressed Nyx! I will probably repurchase this product.

Loved this sponge at first. The shape is great for drawing precise baking lines. But after one use and one wash it started to rip and fell apart. Way too flimsy and cheap for the price.
qymberly from Oregon
This is great for blending out foundation cream blush and cream contour. It doesn't look like any other beauty blender which is also fun. Works great at a very reasonable price and unique shape.

I actually really love the feel of this blender. I love the way it glides on so nicely. The shape is different but I actually like it.
Makeup geek from Medía PA
Good sponge, when you get it wet it really is soft as a marshmallow! Applies makeup evenly. It's sort of an awkward shape and you can't really get in all the corners of your face but I figured that would be the case. Overall, super cute, does the job.
Shelbi from Kentucky
Sponge is very soft and does blend and apply product. However the shape of the blender makes it hard to use and work is small spaces like under the eyes and around the nose.
