Like most make up sponges, you will have to dampen this product to get its full potential. I have used various types of sponges and this is not the worst I have tried...but it is also not the best. It does the job, but the sponge itself does not last a long time.
I love this sponge! Make sure to get it a little damp to get the best blending results! This sponge has actually replaced most of my foundation make up brushes, and even my blush brush :) I love them so much
