never really liked using sponges to apply my foundation. I have seen many bloggers rave about the Beauty Blender sponge but was not prepared to pay around £20 for one. However I have seen dupes on Ebay for 99p! Thats right, you heard right 99p!! Please click here to purchase. What a dramatic difference to the original beauty blender price.
This dupe is a pink sponge that can also be purchased in cream or blue. It is not a complete round egg shape like the original but I prefer that it is not because the dents in the middle allow a nice space for your fingers, which allows a good grip for application. I also love the pointed top as this makes applications under the eyes and nose ever soo easy!
I think this beauty sponge does a great jobs with applying foundation, no streak marks! Also for those that prefer a natural look, if you dampen the sponge before application you can create a more dewy finish. However I still prefer using my Sigma F88 Kabuki brush as I find the sponge is harder to wash and takes longer to dry. On the other hand, I love using this beauty blender dupe for applying my Ben Nye Banana Powder. I find my foundation lasts a lot longer and provides a more matt finish compared to a using a powder brush. Great for night outs and weddings as it gives a flawless finish!
I can not make a comparison with the original beauty blender, perhaps when the price has dropped I may try it out.
I would recommend this beauty blender dupe to everyone as for 99p you cant go wrong for giving it go :D. The only negative I have is as mentioned above, the cleaning difficulty.
Has anyone else tried the beauty blender sponge or any dupes
