Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge ($9.99) I’ve been curious about the Beauty Blender, but I’m not willing to shell out $20. Can you imagine my excitement when I found a blending sponge for much less? I don’t know how Sonia Kashuk’s Blending Sponge compares to the Beauty Blender because I have never used the Beauty Blender.
I have to admit, I did notice a difference after using the blending sponge to apply my foundation compared to when I used a foundation brush to apply. The finish looked more natural and more blended. I would have to say it provided a flawless airbrushed finish. The sponge is firm and very easy to control and hold. You wet the sponge before using and bounce the sponge against your face to apply the foundation. The shape of the sponge allows you to reach all the nooks and crannies of your face. Even with all the raves, I have to mention I did notice the sponge absorbing quite a bit of liquid foundation. I wash the sponge after every use, and I’m not quite sure how long the sponge will last. Crossing my fingers it will last awhile because I do not want to have to constantly shell out $10 for a sponge.
