Try Out Tuesday

February 5, 2019

In the gift bag of goodies @nikirobisonbrows got me for my birthday was the @ecotools Total Perfecting Blender ($4.99 at @ultabeauty). Since I am a sponge addict (especially those that are budget-friendly), I couldn’t wait to test it out!
What it claims:
🔘 Look and live beautifully with the unique EcoFoam Technology made of 70% plant based materials
🔘 PETA certified, meaning they are 100% cruelty free and vegan
🔘 Latex free
🔘 Dermatologist tested
My experience:
🔘 I have used it a handful of times now. Each time, I dampen it and it nearly doubles in size.
👍🏻 I really enjoy the texture. It is just dense enough for how I like a makeup sponge to feel.
👍🏻 The butt end of the sponge is larger than most I have used and I like that because it makes quicker work of blending out liquid foundations.
👍🏻 The flat edge is great for applying powder underneath contour and to the sides of the nose.
👍🏻👎🏻 The flat edge isn’t great, however, for blending out concealer under the eyes because it doesn’t have a point to easily reach into the corners. I, however, was still able to manage, it just required a little more effort.
👍🏻 It stays a little damp throughout the day and I appreciate that because I carry my sponge with me for touch-ups and those are best done with a non-dry sponge.
My verdict?
Taking into account the price, texture and usability for most areas of the face, I would absolutely recommend this sponge. The downside of it not having a point for blending out under eye concealer is not enough for me to not consider repurchasing in the future.
What is your go-to way of applying liquid foundations?
