THE ALMIGHTY CULT-FAVORITE BEAUTY BLENDER $20
If you haven’t heard of the beauty blender, you probably aren’t that into makeup. It’s everywhere. I’ve been purchasing this expensive ass sponges for years. But I will tell you this, they are amazing and I do love them. They’re perfecting for blending foundation and concealer. You can pick these up at Sephora.
REAL TECHNIQUES MIRACLE COMPLEXION SPONGE $6.99
This little awkward guy is also super hyped and usually considered the closest dupe for the beauty blender. To be completely honest, I don’t really like it that much and rarely use it. I don’t think it’s bad and may be good for someone on a budget. It’s too dense for my taste. You can get these at ulta or other drugstores.
ECO TOOLS PERCECT BLENDER DUO $9.99
I am a big fan of the eco tools brand. So when I saw they came out with these new sponges, I had to pick them up. Excuse the dirtiness – I just used it this morning. They have a rounded bottom but squared off top – this makes it easy to clean up the contour line.
The other side has a bit of a shorter dip. I’ve been using these two for a few days and the verdict is in. THEY’RE AMAZING! I think I have finally found my cheaper alternative to the beauty blender. The square edge is perfect for concealer. They don’t seem to soak up as much product either. DARE I SAY IT?! I might like it better than the beauty blender! The smaller sponge is slightly more dense so it’s great for cream products.
And the winner of the battle is …. Drumroll please…. ECO TOOLS!!
I’m interested to see if the sponge lasts as long as the beauty blender does but all in all I’m super impressed and highly recommend it! Have you guys tried it? Let me know your thoughts.
