If you follow beauty boards on Pinterest, you’ve probably seen this pink thing floating around in your pins.
At first I wasn’t intrigued but the more I saw it, I finally decided to click on it. I found it was a beauty sponge that you could buy online and the highlight of the product is that it blends your makeup in well, not leaving any streaks for a flawless finish. But what is the big deal about this pink thing and was it really worth it?
After I found out this was primarily sold online at a price that was a little steep for this bargainista ($19.99), I tried to find a “similar” product in stores. I went to Target and didn’t find anything but found the a blending sponge at Walgreens for only around $5. I also did a search on Amazon and found a variety of Beauty Blending Sponges on Amazon between $5 and $15.
Does it work? From far away, I couldn’t tell a difference. I did the left side of my face with a traditional sponge and the right side with the Beauty Blender Sponge from Walgreens. Up close though I could tell especially around my eye that it had evened out the foundation well.
I think for around $5, it’s worth the investment to have better coverage with foundation!
Have you tried one of these pink sponges? I’d love to know your thoughts!
