Battle of the Makeup Sponges - Beauty Blender Original ($20), Royal ($20), Pro ($20), Blusher ($16), Micro Mini ($30), Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge ($6.99), Swissco Precision Blending Sponge ($5.99), Sephora The Painter Airbrush Sponge ($12) and Black Up Contouring Sponge ($19.50)
DUPE ALERT. I finally found the best dupe of the beauty blender! It's freakishly SO much like it, it makes me not want to buy the real thing ever again. I found mine at ulta, and got it for $6. It's the Precision Blending Sponge (by Swissco). On a budget and can't buy the real sponge? Get this! It's not like the other knock-offs out there. I promise it's just as super great as the beauty blender! Is very squishy and soft, and expands just like it!
