Sponges are the quickest way to blend any concealer or foundation. They absorb the excess product to give a nice natural finish to the skin and make your makeup routine much easier. So many companies tried to imitate the original beauty blender and recently L’Oréal came out with the new L’Oréal Blend Artist Infallible Foundation Blender Sponge that is supposed to provide an even and easy application. I have heard so many people comparing it to the beautyblender so I thought I should give it a try and see how it performs!
L’Oréal sponge VS The BeautyBlender
The first obvious difference between these two sponges is the shape; while the beauty blender has the original egg shape, the L’Oréal one has an hourglass shape. I also noticed that the beauty blender is more dense while the l’oreal sponge feels more flimsy . They are both very soft on the skin and they do not absorb a lot of product. They blend the product nicely and seamlessly into the skin.
Is it a dupe?
I got the L’Oréal sponge two weeks ago and I used it for about 6 times in total. I was washing it after every single use but it ripped from the bottom. I know that these sponges are very delicate and I always squeeze them gently but I was very disappointed with this one!
I don’t know if I got a bad one but I had a bad experience with it and unfortunately I can’t recommend it to anyone. Sponges are supposed to be changed every three months or so, and even if this sponge is only 7.99$, it did not last for even a month, which is not worth it! So unfortunately the L’Oréal blend artist sponge did not pass the test, and it was a big fail for me.
Have you tried this sponge? What do you think about it?
