THIS IS A #1 MAKEUP PRODUCT FOR EVERYONE! No matter who you are or your level of makeup this will step up your game! No matter what foundation, cc cream, bb cream or tinted moisturizer I use I use this. I would use a different foundation, bronzer, mascara, highlight etc but I would not trade this product for a different sponge or brush! No stroke marks, no uneven application of makeup just a flawless "your skin but better look". This product is so hyped up and it's worth it! I use these for powders and liquids just damping before using! I love this product and think the price is reasonable compared to the prices of brushes that don't do as good of a job! I don't find it absorbs very makeup but I do find it makes the product absorb and blend perfectly into the skin. It is doesn't tuck or drag skin when applying like some brushes did for me. My only suggestion is to get a darker coloured one because you can see the tint of the product on the sponge after a while. I love waking up and applying with this fun product and find it easy to ever miss a spot with this.. I just can say enough good about this!
