So let’s get this out of the way. Is the Earth Theraputics Precisso Beauty Blending Sponge a Beautyblender dupe? No. The shape and feel is close, but this product isn’t going to hold up to the cleaning that is required of it. I used this two or three days in a row and it started to show wear pretty quickly. I took into account my nails could’ve nicked the sponge during washing, however, the tip of sponge ended up with a tiny hole in it. Since the tip doesn’t get as much use as the bottom I assume the hole came from washing and handling it. I haven’t had this type of problem with my Beautyblender.
I knew this sponge had a lot to live up to and I wouldn’t hesitate to toss it if it did not come close to my old faithful. As far as foundation application goes the results of this sponge were similar to its more expensive alternative. The Precisso sponge did what I needed it to do for me when it came to stippling and blending my foundation but unfortunately the quality just isn’t the same.
With all that said, if you’re thinking about using a Beautyblender but hesitant to drop the cash on it, this is a decent alternative to help you come a decision. For a few bucks you can figure out if this method is a worthy alternative to your usual method of foundation application.
