My New Favorite Beauty Sponge

There are SO many different beauty sponges on the market. I have always alternated between the original Beautyblender and the Real Techniques version. Until now. My cousin sent me the E.L.F. Cosmetics Total Face Sponge.  This has been a real game changer for me. 

Like my cousin, I love the Beautyblender but, the price point makes it difficult to justify when there is such a great alternative available. My cousin uses it as a powder applicator, but I tend to use it to apply and blend foundation. Not sure if you want to part with your current beauty sponge? This version from E.L.F. is only $4, so you can try it and compare it to your current favorite.

As far as size goes, it is just slightly larger than my Real Techniques sponge. The texture however, is slightly firmer, in a good way. I have heard others complain that the Real Techniques sponge is almost too soft, making it prone to breaking. 

The shape is nearly identical, which I like because the flatter side is ideal for application,  and the pointed end makes it easy to get into the corners of the face.

The firmer texture also helps the sponge retain its shape a bit better. Sponges can absorb bacteria and need to be cleaned and replaced pretty frequently. If you are someone who uses a beauty sponge daily, the Total Face Sponge from E.L.F. will likely end up being your favorite new beauty sponge too!
