$19 for a sponge...yes it's worth it!
Tags +Durable, Easy to use, Great applier/blender, best makeup application ever!
Well I have heard great things about the beauty blender and while I have never used that one specifically, I was never impressed by its shape (to me it's shape was not much different from department store sponges; so I didn't feel it would be very different). Anyway since I have developed what I think is healthy addiction to Mac Cosmetics I thought I would take the dive and try this one out! I admit I had it in my cart a few different occasions before check out I would always remove it, because I thought really almost $20 for a sponge...what can it do! Well after about having it ready for checkout after about 6 times I thought I'm getting it! My only regret is I didn't buy it the first time I thought about it! The coverage is amazing! I use it dry I prefer the coverage it gives over dampening it! I use the tip for concealer application and I have never loved concealer so much! You can only understand once you have used it! I will not live without this performance sponge, and I will purchase again and again, I hope that Mac keeps this around forever!

OUTSTANDING!!!
Tags +Durable, Great applier/blender, Easy to use, liquid foundation and concealer application
I only write reviews when something is really great or terribly bad. So this sponge is on the OUTSTANDING category. The shape is funny but extremely functional, covering all angles and creases of face and eyes when applying liquid foundation and concealer. The texture of the latex is pecfect too, making the make up finish flawless, like it was airbrushed to perfection. Even when using a full coverage foundation it still looks like you barely have make up on. APPROVED !!!!!!

Loving it to bits!
Tags +Durable, Great applier/blender, Easy to use, applying liquid/cream foundations
Since I bought this in HK last week, my 187 has been set aside. The sponge works wonders in the even application of liquid and creme foundations. Its shape also works across the face from the forehead and cheeks down to the sides of the nose and near the eyes. I also love that it came in such a girly color---PINK! Now I'm scratching my head as I should've bought a couple more for my make-up gigs... =)

great!
Tags +Easy to use, Great applier/blender
I freaking love this sponge! it gave life to some foundations which were applying terribly. I was about to throw them away but I decided to give 'em a try with this sponge. and it was right thing to do. I've been using it for several months, it's still in a good shape, it doesn't crumble like others. The coverage is just excellent! no brush will give me this result. but I'm disappointed it's out of stock EVERYWHERE! I've been trying to buy second one since december, no luck yet :(

I really wanted to love this but just couldn't. It's just way too stiff. Not worth the $19. The beauty blender does a way better job at applying & achieving an airbrushed look. Don't get me wrong, it is a good sponge just not worth the price. Too hard of a sponge.

Be careful!
Tags +Great applier/blender, Easy to use, liquid foundation light application
...It can be easily stained. I love it with liquid formulas, not so much with cream formulas. (I prefer the cosmetic wedges for cream foundations, "one-time-use" sponges.) Stay away from other brand foundations that are meant for heavy application, it can easily stain the nice pink color.
Other than that, it is a fast and quick sponge to use when applying light foundation!

Not worth the price
There are plenty of other sponges out there that do the same thing for a better price.

This item was out of stock, but I had great experience with these sponges. But, in order to preserve them, keep them cleaned and wet them before applying makeup.
