e.l.f. Cosmetics Blending Sponge Mini Review

Happy Friday dolls!

Last beauty product review of the week! πŸ™‚

After sharing yesterday’s rambly post, I feel so much better! Sometimes we just need to let some things out and share them, even though it’s not always easy. Thanks to those of you who gave me some feedback on that post, it’s nice to know I have people on my corner even if they’re hundreds, or thousands of miles away! ❀ Much love to you all!

Now let’s get to this review!

Product Description from Ulta:

Now Latex Free! The e.l.f. Cosmetics Blending Sponge flawlessly applies makeup for professionally even and smooth looking skin. Great for creating a full coverage base, contouring or layering color. This durable sponge is washable and reusable, and perfect for use with all formulations including creams, liquids, and powder foundations, concealers or blush. The comfort curve fits perfectly in the hand and is great for controlled application so your hands always stay clean.

Price: $5

This was the first blending sponge I ever used. The first time I used it was with a CC cream and I was surprised at how it practically blended into my skin. I had applied the CC cream with my fingertips, before getting this beauty sponge, but with it, it looked much smoother.

I do have to say that it absorbs some product, so that was kind of a bummer, and after I finally tried the RT sponge, this one was a bit heavier and thicker in comparison. However, compared to the RT sponge, this one was more durable and less prone to tears.

I really like this sponge and it has it’s advantages and disadvantages compared to the RT beauty sponge, but I would say that the pros and cons balance out pretty well. It’s just as affordable as the RT sponge, and it does its job very well.

Pros:

  • Soft
  • Bouncy
  • Nice, curvy shape
  • Blends nicely
  • Durable
  • Less prone to tears
  • Affordable

Cons:

  • It can absorb some product
  • A little thick/dense

I really like this beauty sponge. It’s another good alternative and I like to keep it as a spare if my RT sponges are dirty and/or I need to use another one for a different purpose.

Have you ever tried this beauty sponge?
If not, would you try it out?

      I always do, but unfortunately that’s how the sponge is made. Which is fine, I loved it when I first got it, but after trying the RT, I did see some differences. They both have their advantages and disadvantages when compared.
