10 Top-Rated Makeup Sponges From Sephora — All $20 or Under
If you're new to the makeup-sponge game, know that this option comes in a variety of shapes to target different areas on your face and, while most can be used dry, many of them work best when soaked under water and squeezed out to start. Plus, they're not just for base makeup, as they can also be used with primers, powders, and even blush.
There are dozens of these squishy makeup applicators sold at Sephora, but the 10 included here have the best reviews from other shoppers, with each one earning at least an average four-star rating. Check them out ahead.
Huda Beauty Basic B Sponge
The top-rated Huda Beauty Basic B Sponge ($17) can be used to apply cream, liquid, and powder products with both its round and flat sides, and there's a pointy tip to get at the curves around the nose and other hard-to-reach contours on your face.
Beautyblender Makeup Sponges
The 6,000+ five-star reviews for the Original Beautyblender Makeup Sponge ($20) speak for themselves, but there's also a limited-edition blue Beautyblender Sapphire Sky Makeup Sponge ($20) or a neutral Beautyblender Nude ($20) instead. Just soak each one in water, squeeze it out, and then apply liquid and cream formulas anywhere you'd like.
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Precision Makeup Sponge 100
With more than 59,000 loves from other Sephora shoppers, this popular Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Precision Makeup Sponge 100 ($16) has three different sides to stipple product, target the under-eyes, or buff makeup all over. Not only can it be used with powders, creams, and liquids, there's no latex in this option for anyone with those skin sensitivities.
Sephora Collection Total-Coverage Original Sponge
This curvy Sephora Collection Total-Coverage Original Sponge ($14) can help cover your entire face, thanks to a wider base for blending and a teardrop tip for added precision and contouring. Plus, the bottom of its case doubles as a stand to let it dry upright once you're through.
The Original MakeUp Eraser The Sponge
The Original MakeUp Eraser The Sponge ($18) is already special because it's meant to be popped in the plastic ball it comes with and refreshed right in the washer and dryer — but its 4.7-star average rating doesn't hurt either.
Tarte Foundcealer Multitasking Sponge
The Tarte Foundcealer Multitasking Sponge ($16) earns top marks from other Sephora shoppers for how soft and squishy it is compared to other options. It also features a flat surface and pointy end to get at targeted spots (and it's vegan and free of latex, too).
Sephora Collection Smooth Delivery Sponges
It's hard to argue with the price of these four top-rated Sephora Collection Smooth Delivery Sponges ($9). They can each be used wet or dry, and apply, blend, and touch-up any makeup you can think of, from primer to powder foundation.
With an average 4.5-star rating from other shoppers, this Beautyblender Pro ($20) gets its professional designation as the dark color makes it easier to clean versus the brand's popular lighter-colored options, especially when applying long-wear makeup or self-tanners.
