The Original Beauty Blender
A while back I was hearing tons of hype about the Beauty Blender Sponge. It's main claim is that it has no edges. No edges = no lines. For years, I have sworn by my foundation brushes and I have never been a big fan of sponges. Seeing all the posts about how amazing Beauty Blender was, when I saw a Daily Deal for them on Alcone, I picked up a few. They really changed my mind. They are soft and really give me a lot of flexibility, no matter what I use on the skin. Since you wet them first, it also helps diffuse your product a bit. I love the finish you get from using these, So easy! I use them all the time now.
$20 is a bit pricey for a sponge and I am always on the look out for comparable products. Here's 2 that won't disappoint!

I discovered this one in Kohl's too. I am so impressed. I really like the shape of it. The flat head really helps for coverage. The 2 pack is only $11.
This sponge is a close second to the Beauty Blender. The texture is a little softer, so you don't get the same performance, but it's pretty darn close. And for $6 you can't beat it. They have the double pack on sale at Kohl's for $7.50!!!
