You get what you pay for. It took me a while to blend my foundation with this sponge as it was firm and it made my foundation sit on my skin rather than blend it in. It’s definitely worth spending a little more and getting the real techniques sponge.
I keep a bottle of this on my work desk and now it comes very handy when I have last minute plans to go out after work. I use dark eyeshadows and using this brush and wiping it on a tissue helps to get rid of the colour and bacteria on the brushes.
The name of the product may mislead people to think that this gloss has a ‘plumping’ effect on your lips when it doesn’t. The glossy look creates the illusion of bigger lips. Either way, it’s a gorgeous gloss which isn’t too sticky on the lips.
