The beautyblender converted even the most die-hard foundation brush enthusiasts to the makeup sponge world, but who knew a little sponge would cost just as much as a brush!? If you're not about buying a $20 makeup sponge, don't fret. Here are the best beautyblender dupes that won't break the bank.
Leave it to EcoTools to bring us an environmentally friendly yet high-performing makeup sponge! These little guys are made of 70% plant-based materials so you'll not only look amazing, but you'll feel great about the tools you're using.
This is like the Goldilocks of makeup blenders! It's softer than the Real Techniques but firmer than the Beauty Blender. I love that you can use both wet or dry. I have only used it wet and so far I love it because it blends out my makeup perfectly! The shape makes it easier to blend on the hair line, under the eye, and around the nose. Also you can't beat this price. $9.99 for two sponges plus you can use Ulta coupons on these. Definitely a new win for me!
Influensters say Morphe's Beauty Sponge is as great as the real thing, plus it's a fraction of the price!
This sponge is an amazing dupe for the beauty blender. It's a good price and it's great quality. I love how big it gets when it's dampened. It is nice and bouncy. It really keep your makeup from caking up on your face by removing excess product. It makes everything look smooth and flawlessly blended.
I will say this is my favorite sponge. I've tried off brand, drug store 'dupes', the original beauty blender and basically every beauty sponge possible. I have to say this Miracle Complexion Sponge is easily the best one out there.
It's a realistic shape, it's affordable for all not just some and it's just perfect. The pointed end can get into the hard to reach crevasses etc, and the flat side can be for applying foundation, baking, or even just sharpening up contours with whats left over on the sponge to clean up lines. I've used these for professional body painting with aqua paints, regular makeup, and for setting powders! It's truly a multi-use sponge. The cost is the best part along with the shape!
Anyone can use this and really can't go wrong, although you do want to make sure it's damp, not wet before use. It's made as a quality product, at an incredible price for it easily being the best makeup sponge out there. :)
Achieving a flawless finish is simple with e.l.f.'s Blending Sponge. It works well with both powders and liquids without absorbing too much product.
I don't want to pay the price for an actual beauty blender because this one is way cheaper and works really well. I can't apply my makeup with anything else without it getting flaky and sticking to the wrong parts of my face. This product does a really good job of blending and making a smooth surface! Would highly recommend to anyone on the fence!
This sponge's unique shape makes blending out those hard-to-reach places a breeze.
This sponge reminds me of the original Beauty Blender, but BETTER! It is reasonably priced for what this sponge offers. It is very easy to use, although the shape may seem odd. It can cover large surface areas for quick application and really gets the hard angles (under the eye and inner corner of the eye). It is also easy to manipulate to get the right contour shape. I use this sponge everyday for flawless complexion.
The SOHO Blender Sponge is a longer, more egg-shaped alternative that's great for blending out concealer.
Love this sponge. As a professional makeup artist, I find that the firmness of this blender works perfect with concealers! The pointed ends are great to blend into the edges of the nose and all around the eyes flawlessly! It's also the ABSOLUTE perfect texture to set powder! It can be easily cleaned and it's the perfect price!
Influensters love how each surface of this sponge serves its own purpose. You can effortlessly blend out any part of your face to get that perfect airbrush finish.
This sponge is amazing. I used this on a clients face & they admired how soft the brush felt. I never had a problem with the sponge being hard it has always been easy to use and amazing at blending in foundation. Since I have learned to use the top and the bottom when doing my face it actually is great at blending in every single area. I love the flat bottom for blending foundation on my for head and my temples.
