After thinking that maybe my best would be to stick with brushes for makeup application, my faith in sponges was reaffirmed. For Black Friday, Sephora had a set with 2 mini sponges by their private label as one of the special discounted deals. Because of the price, I was willing to take the risk and I am so glad that I did! While I've felt the BeautyBlender -- used on me, I haven't owned one. These sponges are so soft when wet! And they really do provide an airbrushed finish. Especially with a full coverage foundation that may tend to feel feel a feel a bit heavy, such such as BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme. For light coverage foundations -- any sponge will sheer them out, including including this one. Perfect for both under under eye concealer and foundation, give Sephora Collection sponges a go!
