Most Helpful Positive Review Best Beauty Blender Competitor!
I absolutely love this! When I came across this on the website, I thought is this another generic hard like sponge, or is this another real deal or cheaper alternative to the beauty blender! I bought it, and I loved it. At first I didn't know what I was doing because there were no directions. To dampen or not to dampen, so I tried both ways and yes you are suppose to dampen it. For those who are a budget buyer like myself, this is gonna be your best friend! It blends the same as a beauty blender, gives you amazing flawless coverage, and such a healthy glow. Amazing for all skin types and a bonus for those who have dry skin like me, because when dampen it adds extra moisture to the skin. The only con is, it is hard to wash, and it takes longer to get the soap out. Also when squeezing it compared to the beauty blender you will notice it loses its shape a little while the beauty blender stays in tact! I'm afraid it may give up on me early, but overall you get a bang for your buck and can't beat the price! I have a full on review and beauty blender comparison on my channel http://www.youtube.com/ReesieCherie I would love your feedback!
Most Helpful Critical Review They have changed!!
So annoyed and disappointed I have to give this rating but I'm so fuming as I loved these sponges I bought 2 last year and used them constantly was amazed at how smooth my foundation looked when using them. So decided to buy 2 more this year and their is a significant difference now. They are not as soft and don't soak up water effectively and expand to give the gorgeous softness for an airbrush effect as before. They feel rough on my face and dragging feeling when I apply my foundation. Also when I wash them only after one wash it's started to break up and tear apart. I won't be purchasing anymore unless they go back to the old ones. :'(
Reviewed by 7186 customers This product is terrible!!! Leaves blotches!
Mrs LK from Los Angeles
This got such great reviews and I love other RT products so I didn't hesitate to pick up a multi-pack. Man, that was stupid cuz I am now stuck with 4 sponges I hate. This thing made my foundation and concealer so blotchy! I couldn't believe my eyes when I used it to apply light highlight down my nose, only to have it pull makeup off my nose! This is so bad, I hated the velvet sponge too. I'll stick to RT brushes and steer clear I'd the sponges!
My Favorite Sponge!!
Ashley 💋 from Bay Area
I work at Ulta and this is the sponge I use myself and recommend to absolutely everybody. There is no reason to spend $20 on a sponge that molds up and falls apart in a month! These last so much longer and don't smell nearly as bad. Love it!!
My favorite beauty blender!
Olenka from Bellevue Wa
I will forever be rebuying this beauty blender!!
Can't beat the price and it's so smooth unlike other ones I've tired are hard and cake on my makeup. This one leaves my makeup flawless!! And blends amazing
Ava from North Carolina
I love this way more then a regular beauty blender
kel from ohio
it works perfectly fine. does what you want it to do. sounds like the people who left bad reviews did not get the sponge wet first. if you want it to work flawlessly, make sure the sponge is wet. it grows in size, makes it easier to blend, and doesn't absorb any product. 10/10 best beauty blender on the market (for the price you're paying)
E from Ny
Leaves everything blotchy and my friend and I both had the same results w this sponge. Terrible quality, I recommend the morphe foundation brushes rather than this
Asia from Frisco, Texas
Stiff and hard to use… wasn't as soft as I was hoping
So much better than a beauty blender
Alice from New york
This is a lot cheaper than a beauty blender and works the same! Get this instead
Expensive doesn't make it the best
Drosh from Maryland
Was curious about these sponges in comparison to Beauty Blender so I tried them. I'm glad I did! Blended my foundation, contour, and highlighter to perfection. And sealed with translucent powder ( used the new powder sponge) all with the sponges. Used 6 sponges and cost less than 1 beauty blender. I always thought BB was the best, but happy to report is not the case. I live the flat end on these sponges.
Amy from Boise, ID
These are the only sponges I'll use. Excellent quality at a fair price.
I prefer Beauty Blenders
Rosie from Christiansburg Virginia
The product didn't perform to my expectations, I've tried many beauty blenders and unfortunately this one just was t up to my standards
The best make up sponge
Giselle from Fresno
It's the best bb
So soft, blends amazingly
B from Springfield IL
Needed a new sponge, this was better than the one I was currently using. Way more soft, and easier to blend
VG from NJ
I I heard such good things about this beauty blender but I was so disappointed after trying it. I have dry, textured skin and I noticed when I use this sponge it makes my foundation and other cream products sit on top of my skin rather than blend it in. It made my face look super cakey. I also don't like how firm it is, going back to my elf sponges!
Prefer the finish from my foundation brushes over this!
Selena from Miami, FL
I almost always use a brush or my fingers to apply foundation and was curious to experiment with the 'Miracle' complexion sponge as I have seen it everywhere. After watching a couple of how-to Youtube videos on best application practices, I ordered one and got started right away. The sponge itself is quite small and as soon as I popped it out of the packaging, I dropped it right away due to it being very lightweight. I washed it and began patting it dry, getting it to a damp consistency which was recommended before using it on my face. I dotted some foundation on my face and began by tapping my face with the flat larger curve of the sponge. I found that if you have too much water still on the sponge, it can interfere with the product and doesn't really blend in well, so you need to play around a bit before you achieve a perfect application. In terms of its blending power, I wasn't so convinced… it did leave my face with good-looking coverage, however, I still prefer the overall finish my brushes give me. I also don't like how you have to wash it every time and the storing of it just isn't hygienic in my opinion but might work for others. -> My 'Ulta Beauty Top 7 must-have list' (My 7 favorite beauty products of all time, focusing mainly on my purchases at Ulta) < - < 1.

Creates a smooth finish
I would buy this again

Just didn't love it. Absorbed a lot of the product and I ended up putting too much foundation on trying to compensate.
Smooth application of foundation
Jess from Riverdale, Utah
I have tried this wet and dry with IT Bye Bye foundation and it works great either way. I don't know if it's the foundation formula or the sponge, but it's difficult to get the sponge clean afterwards. Sponge has held up to multiple washes and is probably a month old with only a few cracks/tears. Still works great though.
It really blends well.
Kay from Fort Smith Arkansas
I just put the makeup on the blender and the apply the makeup
GRT from United States
I use this product for blending in my foundation and concealer. It blends well and helps for the product to soak into the skin and not just sit on top.
Everyone needs this!
Crystal from Burtonsville
This by far is the best makeup sponge I have ever used. I tried to buy different ones that may be cheaper and honestly nothing compares to this quality. After washing the sponges, the make applies so naturally. I find this work best after washing with hot/warm water. One of my sponges lasted me over 6 months.
Great alternative to Beauty Blender
Nicole from Rancho Cucamonga
I used this for my foundation and it blended perfectly
Y.V. from Colton, CA
I love how it applies & blends my foundation. It durable unlike other brands I've tried before that rip & fall apart quick. These are my go-to beauty blenders
Hands down better than a Beauty Blender
Norcalbeezy from St Helena, CA
Really really good! I've been an avid beauty blender user for years.. and have gone through so many of them. Finally I found this RT Sponge, and if anyone is considering trying it, just do it!
I'd say it's very comparable in the texture and bounce to a beauty blender. Some cheaper sponges tend to be really firm so it's not very comfortable patting the makeup on your face.
I was really surprised it didn't soak up much foundation the first time I used it. Usually I have to add an extra pump or two if foundation the first time using a new sponge. This RT Sponge blended my foundation really well. Seems like I spend a lot let time blending my foundation in around my jaw line with this sponge. It just makes the foundation go on a lot smoother and blends out any possible think lines.
All in all... I highly recommend!
