Recently after I switched foundations I wasn't liking the way it ended up looking. I was using the MAC 187 brush with MAC Face & Body foundation I looked FLAWLESS but when I switched to Studio Sculpt, the 187 wasn't giving that look I loved. LIGHT BULB! I've had the Beauty Blender & the Sonia Kashuk Blender for a long time but forgot about them after I realized they soaked up too much Face & Body foundation. Both sponges get me that flawless finish I like but How do they compare & which one is better???

How do they compare & which one is better ???
[Both sponges dry -- BB is smaller than the Sonia Kashuk Blender.]
[ Both Sponges damp -- BB doubles in size while the Sonia Kashuk blender stays the same.]
>>> I've had the Beauty Blender for way longer (almost 2 years) & used it more and its still the same as when I bought it. I've had the Sonia Kashuk Blender not even a year & hardly ever used it & its already beginning to crumble in some areas. So while it is cheaper you'll have to replace it more often.
>>> Another thing I don't like about the Sonia Kashuk is that it stays the same size when damp. At first it didn't bother me but I soon realized that makes it soak up more product & makes it harder to wash.
>>> I purchased my BB at The Make-Up Show NYC several years back for cheaper than $20 but it isn't available at a local store, Target like the Sonia Kashuk blender.
>>> Right of the bat many people think cheaper is better, so the Sonia Kashuk is their obvious choice. Don't get me wrong it gets you that flawless finish, but if I had to choose the Beauty Blender would be my choice.
>>> But its a consumer's choice. If you prefer Instant Gratification than the Sonia Kashuk would be your choice tho slightly lesser quality. If you prefer a better quality product Beauty Blender would be your choice because tho slightly more expensive it lasts longer as a result of quality.
