This sponge is really good. It does soak up a lot of product within the first two uses but after that it is amazing. It is very soft and blends everything quickly and flawlessly. It is inexpensive and it does the job well. The only downside ia that it tears easily when washing so you have to be careful. Other than that, well worth the price.
I am quite glad I bought this sponge after seeing it recommended by a YTuber. Seems to be one of the best "runner-ups" to BB. Affordable, easy to use, easy to clean, seems sturdy, and certainly provides great results for me when used with foundation and/or powder. I have been using it daily & will likely re-purchase at some point. I definitely recommend it, I feel you will not be disappointed.
I bought this about a month ago and I love it! I prefer to use it for foundation rather than contouring because I don't use cream contour, but for foundation and concealer... I LOVE IT! I own the Beauty Blender as well as this PUR Sponge and I think they give the skin the same finish. I love the flat side of the sponge because it just hugs your face and blends foundation and concealer in the smallest of places. You can also use the round end of the sponge to blend in foundation as you would a Beauty Blender!!! BEST THING... It is only $12... A TOTAL STEAL! Please buy it! No regrets!
Wow, I never thought I'd find a beauty sponge that I like better than both the Beauty Blender and the Real Techniques sponge. I love both of those. But THIS sponge -- oh my gosh -- is my favorite! It has the softness and bouncy-ness of the Beauty Blender (not kidding, it really does!) so it feels great on the skin. I kinda feel like I'm pampering myself when I use this. It also has a slightly larger flat edge than the Real Techniques sponge which makes application of foundation super quick and flawless. Once I put on my foundation, I flip it over and use the top (smaller) curved side to tap in my under eye concealer and translucent powder. The top curved side fits perfectly in that area right under the eye close to the nose (you know, the place where darkness prevails, lol). LOVE this sponge!
I used to spend so much on beauty blenders. After Kathleen lights featured this sponge on her video. I went ahead and ordered it. It's the best sponge I have used after beauty blender. Doesn't suck up too much foundation, gives you very flawless finish. Definitely going to order this sponge in the future. Love it!!!
I bought this twice the first time the sponge was amazing equal to the beauty blender so when it was time to replace I ordered another and it's a completely different sponge!! The first one didn't have the pur logo stamped in which was great because that effected the integrity of the sponge surface and it rips so easy I don't use it at all I went back to the old one because it still hasn't ripped I won't call customer service I just won't buy this again
First, let me say this sponge is my first sponge, I never own a Beauty Blender before, so I can't compare with it. I like the finish that this sponge leave on my skin, compared to a brush finish, it is less cakey, especially foundation.
That being said, I used it 2 times and then carefully washed it. Result : my sponge cleaved in 5 spots! I'm kind of disappointed, I thought it would last me longer. :-( Was expecting a bit more from it...
I bought this thinking that it would be a dupe for the beauty blender and in a way it is, and in a way it also isn't. It blends out my foundation great and I prefer this over the real techniques sponge. It's definitely not as soft as the actual beauty blender but it blends out my foundation just as well and maybe a little bit better than the beauty blender. I'm starting to like this a tad bit more as well.
This is my 3rd sponge and these are amazing! I've used beauty blenders forever and was recommended to try this. I'm so glad I did. They are better n a beauty blender and cost less. Sturdy too (I clean mine after every use)
I reach for this little gem more than my beauty blender. The flat part of this sponge is perfect for underneath my eye area and the sponge is super soft. Will totally repurchase and will let all my fellow beauty friends know of this amazing sponge!
I bought this because I couldn't get myself to spend $20 on a beauty blender and I'm really impressed! It blends my foundation smoothly and gives good coverage while looking natural. I haven't tried a beauty blender so I can't compare the two but I have no complaints! Worth a try
I am a huge fan of the Beauty Blender and have been looking for other options. Unfortunately I have yet to find something thats a total dupe for it, but this makeup sponge is very comparable. It works wonderful in applying my foundation and concealer.
First let me start off by saying that I love how this sponge applied my foundation and concealer!! The problem I had with it was, when I went to clean it, it ripped really bad, and I wasn't even using any force at all. I had only had it for a day, and I like to wash my sponge after every use so the makeup doesn't dry up inside. I was so crushed because I was excited about this product and it became almost not useable just after one day.
I bought this a few weeks ago and love how well it blends liquid foundation without drying my skin out. It's durable - no chunks fall off like some cheaper alternatives. I clean it and reuse it daily. I like the flat side for getting up under my eyes.
