First Impression: Essence make up sponge (dupe for the Beauty blender?)

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Today, I have another first impression for you. I'm sure we all heard so many amazing things about the Beauty blender and also a lot of possible dupes for it. So awhile back when I was just randomly passing by the Essence stand, I noticed their Make up sponge. As I never used the Beauty blender or any other makeup sponge like that, I decided to grab it and I knew that I wanted to do a first impression with it. So finally, I managed to do one.


The Essence make up sponge comes in two different colours; a pink one and a purple one. I don't remember how much I paid for it, but I found it on Click2Chic for 2, 20 €.
 As you can see (picture on the right), it gets bigger when it's wet. It's quite hard, but not so hard that it would hurt your face. If you squeeze it, it just bounces back into its previous shape.
As I said, this was my first time using a makeup sponge like this, so I can't say if it's harder or softer than any other ''beatuy blenders'', or if it's smaller or bigger.


The make up sponge also comes with instructions, where it says that you should apply the foundation or blush with rounded end, and that the pointed edge is for blending hard to reach areas and for applying the concealer. It also says that you can use it wet or dry.
 I used it wet and on left side of my face I applied the Garnier BB cream and on the right side of the face I applied Manhattan Perfect adapt foundation. Under my eyes I used the Bourjois Healthy mix concealer.


 The make up sponge works great with both, the BB cream and with the foundation. My skin felt extremely soft and it looked very natural, like I wasn't wearing any foundation at all. My dark circles were hidden, also the redness and other imperfections. Both foundations were extremely well blended in, and it looked like my skin, but better.
The pointy side worked great with concealer and for applying the foundation around my nose.


This sponge really helps you to buff your foundation into your skin and it makes blending so easy, so you don't have to worry about having those unflattering foundation lines. With the help of this sponge, you can get the flawless yet natural look, and I was completely amazed by it.
After I was done with applying the foundation and concealer, I washed it with water and let it to dry.

I was very impressed with this and I'm glad that I bought it. I know that I'll use it regularly and I would recommend getting it, if you don't already own something similar. It's great value for money and you won't be disappointed.

Share your thought if you have it and let me know if you found this helpful.

    1. Se strinjam, ampak še nisem naletela na primerjavo :) Ti priporočam, da še pogledaš v Leclercu če ga imaš kje blizu, ker jaz sem ga samo tam našla :)

  5. V našem Dmu in Tuš drogeriji je nimajo, upam da jo vsaj v Mulleru najdem, ker sem jo že prej želela imeti, tvoja ocena me je pa samo še prepričala da jo nujno rabim :)
