I wet the sponge fully, squeeze out the excess water, apply my foundation to the back of my hand and then gently pick it up with the sponge without pressing it into the sponge (Allow the foundation to just sit on top of it).

I found the real techniques to be the most similar to the beautyblender; it has the same bouncy but firm texture and delivers the same undetectable finish.
Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Miracle Complexion Sponges, 2 Pack Product Review
Sweet. Than I thought. Spongi dreams. Good! Buy cheaply. Recommended. Wow. O. Good usability. Loving it
Beautiful girls and cheaper than lifestyle What was dispensed with the abandonment of the Vondishin salary and without lines and bloc advise you. Suwail Ike what you die Tra
As evaluation technique was quite good, we purchased. But do you get into a rather hard puff? Use with small size. You may not mind when you get used to it.
They serve for a long time without exfoliating after washing, I order very soft ones for the third time, I advise
It is used to hold down after applying the liquid foundation. Extra foundation is absorbed and stretched. The repeat is confirmed because it is comfortable to use.
I always buy it again
These sponges are really good considering the price of them.
Very nice sponges!
Excellent honesty, but I pulled on it, and I started using the Marble Brush
I repeat it several times, but it looks like a mixture of fluffy and sticky types. However, I don’t feel particularly disgusted because each of them is a feeling of use. We use in water. I have tried other sponges, but I will return to this after all.
I’ve tried two other face sponges in the past (including the famous Beauty Blender), but didn’t liked them and went back to my brushes. On a whim I added this one to my cart and I can’t stop using it since! It’s so squishy and great for applying concealer, I’m loving it.
