I actually really liked this sponge. I’ve bounced around from brand to brand testing out different alternatives to the original Beauty Blender and this is my newest favorite. The real techniques was my go to for a long time, but I find that lately they stain and tear very easily which negates the appeal of their price point. So far the morphe sponge has stayed stain-free, even with heavy foundations, and hasnt torn or shown any wear and tear. It expands to a good size and is soft but not too soft. I also picked up their contouring sponge, which basically works the same, just a different shape and in fact makes it easier in some regards for application. Hope they come out with itty bitty versions for spot concealing.
