I LOVE these blenders. They work so much better than the foam sponges that I was using before. They blend better and wash better too. I've had some bad experiences with beauty blender sponges soaking up my makeup but these didn't absorb a lot of my foundation. They are velvety soft and feel so nice on my skin. They glide over imperfections like scars and pimples. The brush was a nice added bonus with this sponges. It didn't shed and made my makeup look flawless.
