Review of Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge

Reader Review of the Day: Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge

Those teardrop-shaped makeup applicator sponges seem to be all the rage these days. Recently reader Hyzenthlay20 gave the Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge ($10) a whirl, and here's what she thought of this makeup tool:

I stopped using foundation brushes because I always had lines, no matter how hard I tried to avoid them. I had reverted to using my fingers. Then I saw a review for the Beauty Blender on YouTube and whoever it was said there was an alternative at Target that was basically the same thing at half the cost. I went and got one, and it's very cool! It's soft (wet it before you use it) and it does stipple the foundation onto my face evenly and nicely. If you want to try the Beauty Blender, but don't want to spend $20, invest $10 on this one at Target.

I use this for my Studio Fix Liquid foundation and it makes me look airbrushed. I then apply my Mineralized Skin Finish Natural powder. I highly recommend this sponge. It is a bit difficult to wash so make sure you use antibacterial brush cleaner and let it dry on surface that doesn't pool water. I usually used a 187 Mac brush to put on foundation but now I only use it to set my makeup with Fix+ Spray.

for a smooth foundation application, i just put a lot of lotion on my face, then dot on the foundation and blend with a brush. It creates an even cover that is sheer, almost like a tinted moisturizer. But I'll try this sponge.

I stopped using my foundation brush after having the same problem! I will have to give these sponges a try!

I have always wondered about this sponge as opposed to the more expensive one. Right now I used the packaged sponges and those are cool - but the blendability on this bc. of the shape is neat. I may give it a whirl.

I always tell myself that I'm gonna review more products on here, and I never get around to it. I love this blender myself - it's shaped perfectly to get in creases and your skin does look practically airbrushed (I have to apply concealer after because my skin has acne scaring).

Oh my gosh, that's me! Except it's hyzenthlay with a "z" not an "s" :) Mine cleans up just fine . . . I use a drop of baby shampoo right away and then set it on top of the container it came in to dry out. I've used it for three days now, and I love it more each day!

These sponges should probably be tossed after a couple of months. Sonia Kashuk certainly has a leg up on the sponge designers, i.e. Laura Mercier. No matter how many times you clean them, I would only recommend using one per face, no double-dipping with sponges! Apply makeup with brushes, blend with your fingers, q-tips for messes. I normally airbrush for clients but I only use a sponge to apply tinted moisturizer daily.
