Remember the post that I did on the Beauty Blender and how to use one? Well, I was in Target the other day when I encountered this cheaper dupe. It's $10 and pretty much identical in size to the Beauty Blender. I was with my sister finishing up Christmas shopping when I first saw it and since I was supposed to be shopping for other people, I didn't purchase it then. My thoughtful sister surprised me with it as one of my gifts on Christmas Day. :D
Yesterday, I tried it out with my MAC MSF (mineralized skin finish) face powder in Dark and received fabulous results. It's a keeper! My face really did have a more air brushed look and less like I had powder on. I luv it. I can't wait to try it with my Priia mineral foundation.
I'd recommend it to anyone for a more flawless and natural look. The sponge can be used with wet or dry foundation and mineral foundation as well.

How I Used It:
Since I used a (pressed) powder,
1) I soaked it in water and squeezed the excess water out
2) Rubbed the bottom part of it into the powder (Use the tip of the sponge to apply your foundation on the smaller areas of your face like under your eyes and around your mouth and nose.) Note: You are going to have to pick up additional powder on it more than once
3) Applied to my face in light, dabbing motions; like you're stippling it on; till desired look was achieved Note: You don't want to wipe it across or you will experience streaking and that's not a good look.
With this sponge, it's easy for you to control how much coverage you want and build up to it accordingly.
