Why The BeautyBlender Is Over-Rated + What I Use Instead!


Confession: I think the BeautyBlender is over-rated.

I know the BeautyBlender is the original makeup-blending sponge, but I really don't think it's that great. It's quite porous & bouncy & if I hadn't tried any other similar sponges, I'd be inclined to think it's the best. But after trying a few firmer varieties, I do think I prefer a more dense sponge.

One that I have tried in the past is the 100% Pure Makeup Blending Sponge. Out of the ones I have tried, I think it's my favorite. Whereas the original BeautyBlender retails for $20, the 100% Pure version is only half that. It's also a bit denser than the BeautyBlender which means it doesn't absorb as much product.

The one I'm using currently is the densest of the three: Earth Therapeutics Precisso Blender. I really like this one, especially for thicker foundations. I purchased mine for around $8.

Overall, I think both the Earth Therapeutic & 100% Pure sponges are amazing! I will definitely be purchasing them in bulk, & with their price tag, it's hard not to!
