A great makeup sponge is necessary in my makeup routine. A makeup brush or silicone sponge will NOT do it for me when applying liquid foundation – it always turns out streaky or too heavy. I’ve been using the Beauty Blender for years because of how soft and bouncy it is, and how well my makeup looks. Harder sponges have always turned me off because they didn’t seem to blend out my makeup as well. I was sent EcoTools Perfecting Blender Duo to review from FarleyCo and I am so glad I was given this opportunity! This sponge has honestly made me realize what I’ve been missing.
EcoTools Perfecting Blender Duo includes two sponges – a larger sponge that is perfect for applying foundation all over your face, and a mini sponge for more precise and detailed coverage around your eyes and nose. Now, being a Beauty Blender lover, I was skeptical how these would work since they felt a lot more firm. I’m surprised to say, I might actually like these better than the Beauty Blender…!!!!
I use both of these sponges wet, to help blend out nicer (in my opinion). Both sponges have a rounded base for blending, a flat edge for covering larger areas, and a wedge-tip to help in hard to reach areas and for precise definition (think baking!). They are firmer than other sponges, but I’ve noticed they don’t soak up as much product and actually give off a better application. My skin still looks natural and the foundation doesn’t look caked on. I definitely recommend these makeup sponges, and I will definitely be purchasing these once they run it’s course.
These two sponges are available online for $14.76 CDN:
