Rated 4.27 out of 5 stars
I purchased the original Tarte beauty blender, which ran its course. When I went to repurchase I found this one, and it's so much better. Very soft and malleable, so less streaking. I always splash water on it before applying foundation, that's the secret! Will definitely buy this one again.
I tried this a few different ways (wet, dry, sprayed), but it is very dense and kind of hurts! It also absorbs my makeup. If I use a different blending sponge (RealTechniques or BB), I can get away with one or two pumps of foundation for my whole face, forehead, and neck. With this, I was on 5 pumps and I still feel like the coverage wasn't good at all. I might need to look up some videos on how to use this, because, I honestly feel like I must be doing something wrong! Also, the size, it's very hard to hold onto and a bit awkward. I feel like I should cut it in half. A pic for comparison, next to a Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer.....

I am highly disappointed in this sponge. I bought based on the good reviews but it just doesn't work for me. It stamps the makeup all over my face, leaving weird lines and doesn't blend. It takes way too much time to blend the makeup out. I had to go back to the beauty blender. I wanted to love it, but it was a huge miss.

I definitely recommend this! I use it everyday, way better than the beauty blender.

I have been a beauty blender user for years. I have tried different sponges and never liked any of them until I used this tarte sponge. This is better than the beauty blender! It's so soft and dense. It works so well at blending out makeup or applying setting powder. I highly recommend it and will be stocking up on these!

This has such a nice blend when applying foundation, I've tried many other off brand sponges but none compare to the texture this sponge contains !

I wet it under water, squeeze out all the water and use it to bounce my foundation, concealer and powder on my face

I really like how this blends my makeup. When I am done, I spray the sponge with setting spray and blot it all over to set my makeup .

This is so much softer than my Beautyblender. I was skeptical in the store because of how small it looked but it easily doubled in size when wet. It helps makeup look very smooth and is cheaper than BB! 👍🏼

I tried other sponges and they just didn't spread as evenly or blend as well. This sponge is a little more expensive than the others I tried but in the long run very worth it in saved time while getting ready and improved results!

When the sales woman told me to try it, I REALLY was thinking, please let me and my beauty blender be. She convinced me though, and it was the BEST decision. I have been loyal to my beauty blender for so long but we have now parted ways! Tarte really did out do BB! Great job tarte! 3 dollars cheaper and so much better! ( I know, I didn't think it was possible either )

Blending made easy!

I only used it 1 time but it worked well with my Too Faced matte Peach foundation. I don't always use foundation.

Do not be fooled by it's small size in the package! This blender doubles in size when wetted. I couldn't believe it! High quality, great blending, super soft. Will purchase again!!
