Awesome Makeup Sponge

Claire

Such a great alternative to the beauty blender. Blends makeup seamlessly and makes everything look so natural. I find this one holds up so much better than other beauty sponges. I find the texture of the sponge is perfect for me, not too firm but also not too soft either.

not for me

sisisi

this is a soft sponge and extremely large. could work for a lot of people but for me it was just TOO soft . found it soaked a lot of product up and had to go over the same spot to cover my redness.

  2. affordable dupe

    RH

    Much cheaper alternative to the beauty blender and does a fantastic job at setting my makeup into place. I even use it for moisturisers
  3. Works well

    Laura

    Works very similarly to the original 'beauty blender' and it is much more affordable. Applies foundation well and does the job!
  4. Love Love!

    Hayley

    This is a great alternative to the infamous beauty blender. It is great for foundation/ cream blusher application. It is also much more affordable with a great quality!
  5. Favorite sponge!

    Lizzie

    Such a good dupe for the beauty blender! Love how smoothly it applies my foundation and it doesn't soak up to much product!
  6. Best quality beauty blender!

    chiclife

    I have been using this beauty blender for many years now as its the best quality, it lasts and it covers blemishes very well. I use the other site to blend concealer under my eye and its so gently. Always go back to this sponge, even though it is expensive, it is worth it!

  8. holy grail

    Helene

    I used to swear by applying foundation with a brush, although a friend recommended I try this approach and I've never looked back! Leaves skin looking far more natural, dewy and hydrated.
    I use liquid foundation and dampen the sponge prior to application.
  9. Can’t get it to work for me

    Emma

    Despite watching countless you tube videos I just cannot get the knack of using it - brushes give a much better finish on my skin (which is pretty good except or the odd flake and some enlarged pores on my cheeks).
  10. Great

    Sarah

    I find that my foundation applies so nicely with this and looks so natural. Will buy again
  11. 5 years and still going strong!

    Cat

    I’ve been using this sponge for five years and I don’t see myself stopping any time soon. It blends my foundation beautifully and makes the application easy. I honestly have no complaints except I will now be buying the version with the case because it makes things more hygienic. I’ve found that it works well wet or dry too.
  12. Does the job

    Tina

    I had heard many reviews saying that this sponge is just as good as the original beauty blender and after having tried both brands I have to say this is true. For a cheaper price tag, this sponge does essentially the same thing and I honestly prefer its shape over the beauty blender. Will definitely purchase more after I finish with my current one.
  13. Great sponge

    Neelam

    I found this to be very comparable to the beautyblender to be honest. It is soft, bouncy and blends so well. I like the smooth edge for my undereyes as it gets very close to the lashline. Very easy to wash as well. I would repurchase this over the beautyblender.
  14. As good as a BB!

    Sophie

    I find the performance of the RT sponges equal to Beauty Blenders and at this cost these are far better value.
    Also have the flat end if you want that option.
  15. Just as good as BB

    Kaitlyn

    I think this is just as good as a beauty blender and is so much cheaper!
  16. blends like a dream

    shan

    Sponge doesnt soak up all my product and blends so well!
  17. Great sponge that is different than the others

    Dominika

    I did not really believe that there is a difference between these sponges but after buying one from Real Techniques and another one by a different brand, I was proven wrong. I have a combination skin and used this sponge to apply cream foundation, concealer, tinted moisturiser and even a powder. It works great, no streaks, patches yet it still covers the blemishes(which was the key for me) and blends in really well. I always wet it and squeeze out the excess water before adding the foundation on it and applying to my face. Overall, great product. Easy to use and durable.
  18. Love

    Kaitlyn

    Easy to use, easy to clean and makes my make-up look great!
  19. My favourite

    Aline

    I love this sponge. It is easy to sanitize. The use with her wet and perfect
  20. BESTTT TOOL

    Aj

    i LOVE this makeup sponge lt really does get the job done
  21. Best beauty sponge !

    Zoey

    I love this sponge so much, I've tried a few and prefer it over the beauty blender ! the flat edge in my opinion is perfect for under eye and setting your under eye with powder. I find this sponge is a good and large size which applies your makeup much faster then the smaller sponges ! It also doesn't soak up too much product
  22. Yes!!

    Lola

    Honestly, why spend $30+ on the beauty blender when this does the same job, if not better... will continue to repurchase. Love this!
  23. Tip: buy the sponge that comes with a case

    Jessica

    I have no issues with this product, just am a little OCD with what I put on my face and in hindsight, I wish I had bought the version that comes with a little case, just to throw it into my makeup bag and not worry so much about what it comes into contact with.
  24. Not for the rough handed.

    JohnnyM

    I’ve only had this blender a few months and it’s already torn. This may be because I’m wetting it before every use but never happened before. Really disappointed and have been using a competitor brand.
  25. Just as good as the beautyblender!

    Kerrie

    This sponge gives almost the exact same or even better finish than the beauty blender. It is super soft and easy to clean. You're meant to replace them every 3 months or so but I found that they are completely fine for up to a year if you care for it properly!
  26. Excellent sponge

    Brooke

    I normally use the beauty blender however out of all the other sponges I have tried, this is the one that comes closest to the beauty blender. It is also much more affordable than the beauty blender.
  27. Worth the $$

    Ariel

    So I brought this in the hopes it would live up to its price. I used to buy blenders from Kmart, which I'll never do again. This is so soft. Blends so well, definetly worth it's price. I will be buying more
  28. So soft!

    loz

    This blending sponge is so amazing! It allows your foundation and concealer to be blended so flawlessly, it bounces off the skin and is super soft!! I definitely recommend to everyone out there that loves soft beauty blenders
  29. better than a beauty blender

    Brittany

    Definately would recommend
    Much cheaper than a beauty blender but works just as well
    doesnt break when cleaned
    spreads my makeup well
  30. best alternative to the beauty blender brand at a good price

    alanna

    since first buying my first pack of these sponges from real techniques i could never go back to using brushes, they are so soft and bouncy and super absorbent!
    my complexion is always seamless and blended so well.
    a tip would be to spray some setting spray on the sponge and blot over your face at the end of your application to make sure it's all pressed in and not moving anywhere.
  31. Better than a beauty blender

    Josie

    Way nicer and more affordable than a beauty blender and way better too! Would recommend.
  32. great sponge

    K

    i love real techniques sponges, they are strong and dont tend to break when soaking or washing them!
  33. Good

    Sarah

    Very affordable and high quality beauty blender. It allows my products to blend very easily on my skin and I like the finished look
  34. Go to beauty blender

    Sarah

    I always use beauty blenders with a flat edge and this is a really soft and affordable beauty blender that gives me great foundation coverage on my skin. I also use it to bake and love how well it can blend everything
  35. Love!!

    Kate

    The RT sponge is amazing and just as good as the beauty blender. I use both and don't notice any difference. The sponge applies foundation evenly and leaves the skin looking dewy and healthy. The flat side is also really handy to get into hard to reach areas.
  36. Great Tool

    Bette

    I use this one a little 'damp' as when I used dry sucked up all my foundation, really easy to us and gives a beautiful even coverage
  37. Excellent dupe!

    Paris

    This is an amazing dupe of the overly price of the Beauty Blender. This Real Techniques sponge blends makeup like a dream and I love the flat side for baking!
  38. too soft for me, tears easily

    sis

    i found this to be a lot more softer than the beauty blender. its too big for me personally and i like my sponges to be a little more firm (black beauty blender is my go to!) washed only a few times and i could see little tears.
    would be good for someone who uses it everyday for work and is on a budget tho
  39. Fabulous blender!

    Rae

    Great blending sponge and very soft. I like to use it damp and it gives me nice, even coverage. Easy to clean and also good piece!
  40. Great quality

    SS15

    Very soft, blends products nicely and find that it blends better and is better quality than the beauty blender.
  41. Great results great price!

    JohnnyM

    I use this beauty blender to apply and blend foundation and concealers. I can’t believe it, but I actually prefer this sponge over a more expensive brand I also own. Real techniques make great brushes and sponges in my opinion and if you are after that flawless finish on a budget then I highly recommend trying this out.
  42. A great tool

    Bronte

    I love this sponge. It applies my foundation and concealer flawlessly and I also love using it for setting powder under my eyes. Such a versatile makeup tool
  43. Beauty bag must have

    Laura

    I love this sponge! it makes applying makeup super easy and blends foundation seamlessly. also good to use when baking under eyes
  44. Great way to apply foundation

    hg

    Favourite way to apply foundation and cream products! Works great for me and I would definitely recommend
  45. Great dupe

    Madeleine

    Great dupe for a beauty blender. Does the job. Blends foundation seamlessly.
  46. Best beauty sponge - beats the rest

    Amy

    I bought this sponge due to so many people recommending it due to its similarities with the beauty blender! The Beauty blender was all I knew, so I didn’t have anything to compare it to.
    As soon as I tried this I chucked my beauty blender away (no joke) after 1 use of this sponge! It’s great and blends our makeup flawlessly and the price is just the best!
  47. Great Quality

    Sylvia

    Great quality, but definitley not as soft as a Beauty Blender! I really like the flat edge and the point on the other end of the sponge. Makes it a little more functional.
  48. Great all-rounder

    Kays

    Great sponge for application on all areas of your face.
  49. Best make-up tool

    Akanksha

    Anyone who wears foundation should buy this sponge. RT is amazing as a brand and this product is no exception. It is the only thing that blends my foundation the way it does- making it look like a second skin. I totally love it and can’t recommend it enough.
  50. Love It

    Haylee

    Great sponge especially for the price! Makes foundation go on effortlessly!
  51. Versatile

    Anna

    Love the contours of this sponge - perfect for undereyes and contouring as well as blending foundation. Very versatile.
  52. So affordable!

    Kristen

    After buying expensive sponges, I decided to give this one a go and haven’t looked back. Makes foundation application soo easy and quick and I always get compliments! I put it down to the sponge!
  53. Fabulous!

    Isabella

    I found that this sponge is amazing for applying foundation - I like to dampen it before hand and then use it to blend everything once I'm finished with my face makeup. Leaves your makeup looking seamless!
  54. Seamless blending

    Carly

    Fantastic alternative to more pricey sponges! Easiest and quickest way to blend.
  55. Great affordable beauty sponge

    Rachel

    This is a wonderful, affordable beauty sponge. Whilst I haven't ever tried the original beauty blender as I could never justify the price, I don't feel the need to with the results this sponge provides. I use it damp for application of foundation, and as someone who loves natural looking makeup, I love the second skin, natural, blended look that this sponge gives. I haven't had problems with longevity as some other reviewers have, and find that it washes really well with makeup sponge cleanser (I just use the one from Daiso that works a treat). Would definitely recommend.
  56. Okay

    Isabella

    I definitely prefer the original beauty blender. This is still good.
  57. Cheap alternative to beauty blender

    Jessica

    I love this as a cheaper alternative to the beauty blender. Its designed with a point and flattened edge to blend out foundation, concealer and cream products easily. I use damp, and replace often as they can get a bit grubby.
  58. Works well but tears easily

    Sally S

    I have used these as well as the classic Beauty Blender and while these work just as well for the application of make up, I find they don't have the longevity of Beauty Blenders. I use my sponges daily and like to wash after each use and have found they tend to tear a lot quicker than beauty blenders. I have owned about 10-15 of them and tried a number of different products to wash them but nothing worked to keep them in tact, in some cases they had a tear within 3 washes. I find the tip of this sponge to also be a little wide which makes it harder to reach into the corners of my eyes. At half the price of a beauty blender you can replace them twice as much but to me that still wasn't worth it, if you don't use them everyday and therefore don't wash it as frequently as I do they might be perfect for you. They're a quality sponge.
  59. Moneys worth

    Emily

    Most people think the beauty blender is better but for the price, the real techniques works really well. If you’re comparing a &1 sponge to this and the beauty blender. You get what you pay for but this sponge does the job!
  60. CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS ENOUGH

    Akanksha

    Guys, I have tried brushes and my fingers both. This thing trumps everything by a landslide. The way it blends my foundation- it looks like a second skin. TBH, you can buy the best foundation out there but if you do not use the right blending tool it will look cakey and thick. I absolutely love it-best buy
  61. Great dupe

    Frances

    I love my beauty blender but this really does compare well - I tend to pick these up because they're easier to get my hands on, and work just as well.
  62. one of my faves

    monique

    love the shape of the sponge and works almost as well as the beauty blender. only downside is that the sponge doesnt last as long as the beauty blender
  63. love it

    Jessica

    beautiful application, makes makeup creaseless, and helps conceals dark circles and spots very well, feel really aerated and fluffy use all the time.
  64. Honestly nothing compared to the beauty blender

    Joel

    I personally think that it’s worth spending the extra money to get the real beauty blender. The beauty blender is a lot softer and bouncier than this. Although this is cheaper I can feel the difference!
  65. Do not need the real beauty blender

    Grace

    I have used the original beauty blender, but Real techniques sponge is just as good for a more affordable price. It is best used damp for my concealer, foundation etc. It blends easily but initially it will absorb some of your product, which is why I recommend using it damp. I have been dipping it into my setting powder and pressing this into the skin which has slightly damaged the sponge due to powder build up so I recommend buying 2 sponges and using one for powders and one for liquids. I also found if I do not wash it monthly and a lot of liquid product builds up it can change shape so I recommend regular cleaning.
  66. multiple use

    Angie

    this sponge is useful for almost everything like blending foundation, concealer and baking. it does really expand hugely and is quite bouncy and soft. not stiff at all or absorbs a lot of product. the flat surface is so good at blending foundation and saving time.
  67. BETTER THAN THE BEAUTY BLENDER

    S.O. C

    I cannot be without this sponge!
    I have tried so many others and always find myself coming back to this one!
    It has the perfect texture and leaves my concealer with a perfect finish!
    I rate it more highly than the original beauty blender!
  68. Can't live without

    Ari

    I use it daily for applying foundation, concealer, cream blush and contour, liquid highlighter and powders. It eliminates the need for multiple brushes and applies all products seamlessly.
    Must be used damp.
  69. Really good beauty blender

    Ella

    So easy to use, blends foundation really well, also like that they're so cheap
    Is a bit harder than other brands but I find it works really well
  70. an amazing sponge but not long lasting

    Erica

    Love this sponge but it doesn't last as long as other brand. thank god it is not as expensive as the other brand so I don't really mind
  71. A sponge that rivals Beautyblenders

    Madison

    I love all my real techniques sponges. I don't feel the need in buying a sponge double the price of the real technique ones because they both apply the same to me. Save your money and try these out
  72. Essential!

    Sheena

    I TRIED brushes for application, for years and always reverted back to good old fingers. As my skin texture has changed with age I needed to try something different. Brushes still weren't working for me so I tried this sponge, after trying cheap brands and even the original BB. This is my essential. I will never be without one again!
  73. Love this beauty sponge!

    Caitlin

    I haven't tried many other sponges, but for the price I think this one is great. I wash it regularly and it's lasted months! It applies foundation and other products so nicely, and now I'm used to using it I much prefer the application to a brush or other method - it doesn't even take any longer.
  74. It’s great

    Everly

    I have tried many different brands of beauty blenders including the original and I never notice a different between brands regardless of how much is spent on them.
    I found these to blend the makeup really well and found when I washed them they maintained their shape - When they get too old you can just replace them as they’re cheap.
  75. Blends flawlessly

    Jaimie

    Blends my foundation and concealer so well! Works well dry too, better than other sponges I've used.
  76. An absolute go-to

    SBL

    This sponge is amazing value for money in comparison to its competitors. It is so similar to the beauty blender that you would be throwing money away to spend the additional money on that, and it's so much better than almost every other cheaper alternative that it's just the perfect product. It blends my foundation out like a dream, as well as other cream products, so I tend to have a good 2 or 3 on the go at any one time. I also find that it packs loose powder on for baking really well if you use it dry
  77. Nice

    Catherine

    Cheaper than the beauty blender and works just as well, maybe even better!
  78. What am I missing??

    Emma

    Am I the only one that doesn’t understand these things?? I really don’t get them!! They absorb all product (when wet & dry) and leave pretty much no coverage on your face. I really don’t get the point of these. I gave it a red hot go but I’ll stick to my RT brushes instead
  79. Good sponge

    Taylor

    It’s affordable, grows to a good size when wet and much more affordable than the beauty blender
  80. Best dupe on the market for the Beauty Blender

    Mon

    I always used to use my fingers for applying my foundation and concealer (cringe, I know) but since trying out this sponge I am impressed. It is soft, bouncy and gives an amazing flawless coverage when used correctly. I suggest running it under water and then gently squeezing it until it is left damp but no water leakage, for the best application. Only downfalls are the application time and product wastage. It takes quite a long time to apply your base with this product as you have to use patting motions for the flawless finish so if you are in a rush, I don't suggest using it. Also because it is a sponge, and we all know they absorb liquids, I am not entirely impressed with how much product I am wasting especially when my foundation is an expensive high end product. I will only use it with my cheap-average priced base products and if I have a special occasion or have a lot of extra time on my hands before going out. Overall, it is an amazing quality product, but I suppose it comes down to personal preference.
  81. The best sponge

    Caiti

    I always use these to apply my makeup, it just has the most natural finish and having it wet keeps the dewy look. Also yay for being cheaper than the beauty blender. I tend to buy a pack of a few just to stock up.
  82. Blends foundation well

    Isabel

    Fantastic complexion sponge that blends foundation nicely on the face. It spreads foundation evenly across the face and is gentle on the skin.
  83. Blends Well

    Laurel

    Blends make up well, leaving a pretty flawless finish. I like the fact that it's orange too, it makes it really easy to find in my makeup bag. The only problem I have with it is cleaning it, when I tried to get the foundation out of the first one I bought, a piece of the sponge broke off.
  84. Absolute favourite sponge!

    Leila

    This sponge is so soft and blends my foundation and concealer like a dream! The flat edge is also perfect for applying powder under my eyes and contouring. It's the only sponge I use and I can't recommend this product highly enough.
  85. Great Product

    Leyla

    Blends very well, super happy, would highly recommend
  86. Good

    Amanda

    Great dupe for a beauty blender sponge. Suggest wetting it before using!
  87. Blending Perfector

    Maddison

    This is one of the best sponges I have used (it is up there with the beautyblender). It is soft, blends to perfection and is easy to clean. I like the flat edge to get under my eyes and the corner of my nose. I found it to hold up well for months if maintained properly.
  88. Versatile sponge

    Shahnaz

    Easy to use, quite versatile and affordable
  89. OK, not the best

    IK

    Soft and nice, but not long-lasting, so not the best value...
  90. Best blender on the market!

    Tania

    I LOVE this beauty blender. It is so smooth yet a little dense just the right balance to blend your makeup! It has lasted me a really long time and I would defiantly recommend this to everybody
  91. Soft as a cloud

    Krystle

    Super soft! My foundation goes on flawlesses with this sponge and highly recommend for both full coverage or when you’d like to have a dewy look. You have the option to keep sponge dry or damp for different effects.
  92. One of the best

    Neel88

    This is one of the best sponges I have used (it is up there with the beautyblender). It is soft, blends to perfection and is easy to clean. I like the flat edge to get under my eyes and the corner of my nose. I found it to hold up well for months if maintained properly.
  93. Love It

    Ashley

    Love this sponge! Super soft and leaves a beautiful, flawless application of foundation.
  94. Easy to use

    Cindy

    Easy to use and nice and strong. Great makeup application that leaves the skin with even coverage. My last one has seen through a whole year and still going strong
  95. love love love

    Abby

    love this sponge so much but the only thing is that you have to really keep up with keeping it clean otherwise makeup builds up quite quickly and it will be very hard to give a good clean to!
  96. Perfect

    Abbey

    This is such a good blender. Perfect with all foundations. I would suggest wetting it before you blend :)
  97. Always have it in stock

    Shan

    I buy packs of these and always have a backup sponge ready to go. I've even bought some for my girlfriend who is getting into makeup.

    They are cheaper than the BB and are so soft and bouncy. My only complaint is that they do not very long. I wear makeup everyday and after about 3 months i start getting tears in the sponge, i wish it was more environmentally friendly
  98. Best Sponge but hard to clean

    Laura

    This sponge is really easy to work with once wet, and is really good for applying liquid foundation. It's really hard to clean though, especially on the flat top side.
  99. Amazing!!!

    Paula

    My sister bought these for me at Christmas and i was instantly converted!! I’ve used the original beauty blender and Model Co brands and they have nothing on Real Techniques
