Omg idk what I was waiting for! I always used Mac brushes for my foundation, but was having a hard time getting my Estee Lauder double wear out of the brush, which was frustrating me! I always saw MUA using this little sponge! I was curious to why every single artist used one. I went to Sephora and saw the original regular ol blender, and then I saw this, which seemed to be a better deal, because if I did like it I was getting and extra and the soap they suggest to use with it. And it would have costed more to get all three items seperate. Only down is it doesn't come with the container to store it on while drying. I wet it and was instantly obsessed with the soft squishy feel of the sponge. It like doubled in size! I only squeezed, not towel rung, because I figured more water in it, less product wasted/absorbed. I used my brush to initially apply then the sponge to blend more afterward. And it really made the foundation so much more smooth! I was amazed! I'm usually sensitive to smells and the soap has a lavender fragrance, which usually gives me a headache, but it doesn't seem to bother me. I now just dot the foundation with my brush and blend with the BB. Another plus??.... This soap actually gets the foundation out of my brushes! Yay!! Totally recommend this bad boy, it will totally change your makeup game forever, and you'll wonder what you ever did without!
