not inlove

ellis

really didn't love this, it makes you need so much foundation and I didn't get a better blend then if I used a brush
  1. A little on the fence

    J

    Overall I do quite like it but nothing too special. Its often said to be very affordable, and compared to a beauty blender it is, but I still find it overpriced at about $20 each. I feel like there's cheaper comparible options out there
  2. a good sponge

    leigh

    this is really good when you get the hang of it, blends foundation well

  4. Always go back to it

    Maddison

    I've tried a few sponges and I always go back to this one. It is affordable and smooths my foundation and is pretty durable! I replace it when I feel it's starting to get unhygienic, I've never had to replace it for rips or tears.
  5. Love this sponge

    Kyra

    I really love this sponge. It's affordable and easy to use. I dampen it for foundation or use it dry for powder. Love!
  6. Spongey goodness

    Stephanie

    I use this sponge everyday, It is perfect. It is affordable, soft but not too soft, spreads makeup easily and evenly and is a great shape to fit in all the little creases of the face
  7. YES

    Melinda

    On the VERY rare occasion that I wear liquid foundation, THIS is what I will always use to apply it. It is lovely and soft, and I don't find that I waste a lot of product with it.
  8. My good first sponge

    Kelly

    verified purchaser
    Great with different angles. It doesn't just soak up product
  9. Best makeup sponge I’ve found!

    Maddiec13

    verified purchaser
    This is the second one I’ve bought now, also bought my mum one too! After trying so many from the chemist that are too firm and don’t do what I need them to, this sponge is the perfect firmness. It’s light enough to work the foundation on my skin and the shape of it is really helpful to get into tricky spots. I highly recommend it but would say you should get the one with the case, that’s great va...

    This sponge is a must have for every makeup collection. Been through sooo many in the last few years. Love them
  11. makes foundation smooth

    shay

    makes my foundation super smooth, i really liked this
  12. Best sponge

    F

    I have gone through a couple of these in the past few years. They are so soft and apply makeup flawlessly. I cannot fault them!
  13. Great Dupe to a Beauty Blender!

    Nat

    Exactly the same as a beauty blender yet almost half the price.
    Can be used both damp or dry!
    Gives an excellent smooth finish to foundation and concealer!
  14. Great sponge

    xthutranx

    Cheaper alternative as the beauty blender and does the same job.
  15. The best makeup sponge

    T

    It’s the perfect applicator for applying a flawless base love it I’ve tried many other brands and this is the only one I use now and I recommend it to everyone.
  16. soft sponge

    anomymous

    i used these for quite sometime, it does the job of blending out foundation and concealer etc. the sponge is soft, this doesnt beat my original beauty blender though, but this is really good for the price so if you cant commit to paying for the beauty blender, this will be my second recommendation for makeup sponges
  17. Great affordable sponge!

    Gigi

    I use this to blend out foundation even after using a brush as it gives such a flawless and natural finish. Can also be using for cream products like blush and bronzer and even to press powders into the skin! Be careful when washing while wet as it is very soft and can be easily torn.
  18. Good product

    Ivy

    Perfect for applying foundation. The only downside if you need to wash it often to make it clean.
  19. not inlove

    ellis

    really didn't love this, it makes you need so much foundation and I didn't get a better blend then if I used a brush
  20. great dupe for beauty blender

    bonsai

    Bought this rather than the beauty blender and it gives a nice natural finish to my foundation. Only thing is don't apply product directly onto the sponge as it tends to soak in product.
  21. My go to for years

    Greta

    I have been using these sponges forever. Very handy tool at getting that perfect foundation coverage. Worth your money
  22. Not the best

    Shae

    I did like this however I did not love it. It soaks up so much product. It does blend my foundation well but for how much product it soaks it is not worth it.
  23. Beautiful!

    Simone

    I also love to use it to blend all makeup including bronzer and blushes!I love this sponge for a flawless foundation finish!
  24. Fantastic

    rebecca

    Gives a good smooth base and absorbs less than the beauty blender. easy to clean and easy to use
  25. favourite sponge

    Emma

    I've tried a few sponges and I always go back to this one. It is affordable and smooths my foundation and is pretty durable! I replace it when I feel it's starting to get unhygienic, I've never had to replace it for rips or tears.
  26. Go to sponge

    Han_092

    Another quality real techniques product. This sponge is perfect for applying liquid foundation. Leaves me feeling dewey and flawless.
  27. Good

    Tia

    This sponge works well for blending my foundation on my face and neck
  28. Such a great sponge!

    Maria

    Such a great sponge and a great price! I love it :)
  29. Game changer

    Brucey

    Just damp your sponge with some setting spray before use and the application will be amazing. Such a great price and pleasure to use. I cannot justify spending double the money for a Beauty Blender which is basically the same thing. ICONIC.
  30. Great!

    Lucy

    I love this sponge for a flawless foundation finish! I also love to use it to blend all makeup including bronzer and blushes!
  31. Better than a Beauty Blender

    Emma

    I prefer this over the pricier beauty blender.

    I use this to bake and it creates a more defined line and also works well for blending.

    If you are a frequent traveller I recommend purchasing the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge with Case, which is the same price.

  32. Love the real technique sponges!

    Moni.B

    I love the miracle complexion sponge! Works great like a beauty blender! Helps blend your foundation and concealer effortlessly!!
  33. Amazing!

    Jen

    Doesn't soak up my foundation and leaves an airbrushed finish. I love this sponge, its large and very soft. Easy and comfortable!!
  34. The best of the best!

    Ellie

    I have purchased this sponge many times because it is so good! It blends beautifully and lasts a long time. This is my go to makeup tool.
  35. Value for money

    JV

    Great sponge, blends so well and super soft. I would say its just as good as some of the more expensive brands!
  36. Great!

    S

    Such a nice blending sponge. its way cheaper than the beauty blender and works just as well.
  37. Best sponge ever!

    Hercy

    It's really soft and can make foundation look really nice on the face. The shape of it is reasonable as well, which is suitable for face. But I think it doesn't have a good quality or I use it too much? It has some cracks in a short time.
  38. Great product

    JV

    Blends makeup flawlessly. Works just as well as the original beauty blender, but half the price!
  39. very soft hight quality

    Chele Pagno

    At first I thought was little expensive, but when I bought it I understood why.
    The quality is wonderful, extremely soft and when we apply makeup with it the makeup lasts much longer.
    Worth every penny, loved it the same quality of that expensive beauty blender.
  40. A good product, doesn’t last too long though

    Mandstar87

    I think this is a good beauty blender dupe, the application looks good with this sponge. I am very careful with my sponges but did find this one tended to deteriorate a lot quicker than other sponges, even with careful cleaning.
  41. Amazing

    Sarah

    This is my go to sponge. It blends my foundation flawlessly
  42. As good as the best.

    Ella

    I bought this instead of another major brand blender because of the lower price point. It doesn't soak up too much product, and it's very soft and easy to use. The pointy end is just right for applying concealer at the inner corner of my eye, and I actually tip the sponge upside-down to use the round, flat edge to apply concealer under my eyes, since the size and shape is pretty similar to the eye...

  43. Favourite sponge and way to apply foundation

    Ella

    I love this sponge!! It creates such a beautiful, even, blended finish, and easy to use. I find it used best dampened, which stops it from soaking up too much product during application. They last for ages, especially if washed thoroughly and regularly. Great for anyone, and I would definitely recommend this to beginners too. I have bought many of these and will continue to.
  44. like

    jess

    really like this sponge. very soft when used wet and a good price
  45. Great tool

    SophieG

    This is a great make-up tool. Helps blend product well.

    The shape is perfect to hold, and the edges are suitable for different parts on your face.

    I personally didn't find this too soft/ absorbent.
  46. really easy application

    alla

    I love this sponge, its large and very soft. Doesn't soak up my foundation and leaves an airbrushed finish.

    The shape is perfect to hold, and the edges are suitable for different parts on your face.

    I personally didn't find this too soft/ absorbent.
  48. Flawless makeup

    Jess

    A quality alternative to the beauty blender that evenly blends makeup products in both its damp and dry forms and leaves skin looking blurred and flawless. Absorbs only minimal product if at all and is durable!
  49. amazing

    doodoo

    this particular sponge is a dupe for the beauty blender. But I feel like this feels softer and a little bigger. I love the little curve. Blends like dream
  50. Love it!

    Ana

    A pro product for blending and is a good size and shape for fixing concealer.
  51. Amazing Sponge

    MG

    this sponge is literally amazing at blending out foundation and baking your face, it leaves you looking FLAWLESS
  52. best beauty blender

    fatos

    this is such good beauty blender and its a dupe for beauty blender. great for the price
  53. Good

    Tia

    This blends my foundation so seamlessly. This is soft and large enough so I can do my makeup quickly
  54. Awesome Makeup Sponge

    Claire

    Such a great alternative to the beauty blender. Blends makeup seamlessly and makes everything look so natural. I find this one holds up so much better than other beauty sponges. I find the texture of the sponge is perfect for me, not too firm but also not too soft either.
  55. affordable dupe

    RH

    Much cheaper alternative to the beauty blender and does a fantastic job at setting my makeup into place. I even use it for moisturisers
  56. Works well

    Laura

    Works very similarly to the original 'beauty blender' and it is much more affordable. Applies foundation well and does the job!
  57. Love Love!

    Hayley

    This is a great alternative to the infamous beauty blender. It is great for foundation/ cream blusher application. It is also much more affordable with a great quality!
  58. Favorite sponge!

    Lizzie

    Such a good dupe for the beauty blender! Love how smoothly it applies my foundation and it doesn't soak up to much product!
  59. Best quality beauty blender!

    chiclife

    I have been using this beauty blender for many years now as its the best quality, it lasts and it covers blemishes very well. I use the other site to blend concealer under my eye and its so gently. Always go back to this sponge, even though it is expensive, it is worth it!
  60. not for me

    sisisi

    this is a soft sponge and extremely large. could work for a lot of people but for me it was just TOO soft . found it soaked a lot of product up and had to go over the same spot to cover my redness.
  61. holy grail

    Helene

    I used to swear by applying foundation with a brush, although a friend recommended I try this approach and I've never looked back! Leaves skin looking far more natural, dewy and hydrated.
    I use liquid foundation and dampen the sponge prior to application.
  62. Can’t get it to work for me

    Emma

    Despite watching countless you tube videos I just cannot get the knack of using it - brushes give a much better finish on my skin (which is pretty good except or the odd flake and some enlarged pores on my cheeks).
  63. Great

    Sarah

    I find that my foundation applies so nicely with this and looks so natural. Will buy again
  64. 5 years and still going strong!

    Cat

    I’ve been using this sponge for five years and I don’t see myself stopping any time soon. It blends my foundation beautifully and makes the application easy. I honestly have no complaints except I will now be buying the version with the case because it makes things more hygienic. I’ve found that it works well wet or dry too.
  65. Does the job

    Tina

    I had heard many reviews saying that this sponge is just as good as the original beauty blender and after having tried both brands I have to say this is true. For a cheaper price tag, this sponge does essentially the same thing and I honestly prefer its shape over the beauty blender. Will definitely purchase more after I finish with my current one.
  66. Great sponge

    Neelam

    I found this to be very comparable to the beautyblender to be honest. It is soft, bouncy and blends so well. I like the smooth edge for my undereyes as it gets very close to the lashline. Very easy to wash as well. I would repurchase this over the beautyblender.
  67. As good as a BB!

    Sophie

    I find the performance of the RT sponges equal to Beauty Blenders and at this cost these are far better value.
    Also have the flat end if you want that option.
  68. Just as good as BB

    Kaitlyn

    I think this is just as good as a beauty blender and is so much cheaper!
  69. blends like a dream

    shan

    Sponge doesnt soak up all my product and blends so well!
  70. Great sponge that is different than the others

    Dominika

    I did not really believe that there is a difference between these sponges but after buying one from Real Techniques and another one by a different brand, I was proven wrong. I have a combination skin and used this sponge to apply cream foundation, concealer, tinted moisturiser and even a powder. It works great, no streaks, patches yet it still covers the blemishes(which was the key for me) and ble...

    Easy to use, easy to clean and makes my make-up look great!
  72. My favourite

  73. BESTTT TOOL

    Aj

    i LOVE this makeup sponge lt really does get the job done
  74. Best beauty sponge !

    Zoey

    I love this sponge so much, I've tried a few and prefer it over the beauty blender ! the flat edge in my opinion is perfect for under eye and setting your under eye with powder. I find this sponge is a good and large size which applies your makeup much faster then the smaller sponges ! It also doesn't soak up too much product
  75. Yes!!

    Lola

    Honestly, why spend $30+ on the beauty blender when this does the same job, if not better... will continue to repurchase. Love this!
  76. Tip: buy the sponge that comes with a case

    Jessica

    I have no issues with this product, just am a little OCD with what I put on my face and in hindsight, I wish I had bought the version that comes with a little case, just to throw it into my makeup bag and not worry so much about what it comes into contact with.
  77. Not for the rough handed.

    JohnnyM

    I’ve only had this blender a few months and it’s already torn. This may be because I’m wetting it before every use but never happened before. Really disappointed and have been using a competitor brand.
  78. Just as good as the beautyblender!

    Kerrie

    This sponge gives almost the exact same or even better finish than the beauty blender. It is super soft and easy to clean. You're meant to replace them every 3 months or so but I found that they are completely fine for up to a year if you care for it properly!
  79. Excellent sponge

    Brooke

    I normally use the beauty blender however out of all the other sponges I have tried, this is the one that comes closest to the beauty blender. It is also much more affordable than the beauty blender.
  80. Worth the $$

    Ariel

    So I brought this in the hopes it would live up to its price. I used to buy blenders from Kmart, which I'll never do again. This is so soft. Blends so well, definetly worth it's price. I will be buying more
  81. So soft!

    loz

    This blending sponge is so amazing! It allows your foundation and concealer to be blended so flawlessly, it bounces off the skin and is super soft!! I definitely recommend to everyone out there that loves soft beauty blenders
  82. better than a beauty blender

    Brittany

    Definately would recommend
    Much cheaper than a beauty blender but works just as well
    doesnt break when cleaned
    spreads my makeup well
  83. best alternative to the beauty blender brand at a good price

    alanna

    since first buying my first pack of these sponges from real techniques i could never go back to using brushes, they are so soft and bouncy and super absorbent!
    my complexion is always seamless and blended so well.
    a tip would be to spray some setting spray on the sponge and blot over your face at the end of your application to make sure it's all pressed in and not moving anywhere.
  84. Better than a beauty blender

    Josie

    Way nicer and more affordable than a beauty blender and way better too! Would recommend.
  85. great sponge

    K

    i love real techniques sponges, they are strong and dont tend to break when soaking or washing them!
  86. Good

    Sarah

    Very affordable and high quality beauty blender. It allows my products to blend very easily on my skin and I like the finished look
  87. Go to beauty blender

    Sarah

    I always use beauty blenders with a flat edge and this is a really soft and affordable beauty blender that gives me great foundation coverage on my skin. I also use it to bake and love how well it can blend everything
  88. Love!!

    Kate

    The RT sponge is amazing and just as good as the beauty blender. I use both and don't notice any difference. The sponge applies foundation evenly and leaves the skin looking dewy and healthy. The flat side is also really handy to get into hard to reach areas.
  89. Great Tool

    Bette

    I use this one a little 'damp' as when I used dry sucked up all my foundation, really easy to us and gives a beautiful even coverage
  90. Excellent dupe!

    Paris

    This is an amazing dupe of the overly price of the Beauty Blender. This Real Techniques sponge blends makeup like a dream and I love the flat side for baking!
  91. too soft for me, tears easily

    sis

    i found this to be a lot more softer than the beauty blender. its too big for me personally and i like my sponges to be a little more firm (black beauty blender is my go to!) washed only a few times and i could see little tears.
    would be good for someone who uses it everyday for work and is on a budget tho
  92. Fabulous blender!

    Rae

    Great blending sponge and very soft. I like to use it damp and it gives me nice, even coverage. Easy to clean and also good piece!
  93. Great quality

    SS15

    Very soft, blends products nicely and find that it blends better and is better quality than the beauty blender.
  94. Great results great price!

    JohnnyM

    I use this beauty blender to apply and blend foundation and concealers. I can’t believe it, but I actually prefer this sponge over a more expensive brand I also own. Real techniques make great brushes and sponges in my opinion and if you are after that flawless finish on a budget then I highly recommend trying this out.
  95. A great tool

    Bronte

    I love this sponge. It applies my foundation and concealer flawlessly and I also love using it for setting powder under my eyes. Such a versatile makeup tool
  96. Beauty bag must have

    Laura

    I love this sponge! it makes applying makeup super easy and blends foundation seamlessly. also good to use when baking under eyes
  97. Great way to apply foundation

    Favourite way to apply foundation and cream products! Works great for me and I would definitely recommend
