I love this. I had heard SO much about how this is amazing at blending and this does blend well but it is the same than the REAL TECHNIQUES one. Now I DO prefer this one just because it will last you a lot longer than the real techniques one because it is way more high quality and more hygienic in the sense that this one retains less water so mold won't form and all of that. The best quality wise sponge I've used. And the cleanser does a great job at cleaning my BB. This pink color does bleed / washes off.
