Rated 5 out of 5 by IPEsquire This works great for me
I know you can get a sponge blender anywhere but I wanted to try this one out. This works great to apply my CC cream. I haven't been able to get a smooth finish with the double ended IT brush but with this it just blends it out beautifully. I wet it well and let it swell up nice and big and squeeze it out a few times before the final squeeze out for use. It gets nice and big so it doesn't take forever to make the passes over your face - which is a plus especially with the CC cream as you only have so much time to smooth it out before it sets. It took a few times to figure it out but now it is my favorite way to apply the CC. You just bounce it all over your face and it does the work for you - use the smaller side around the nose and eyes. I use the side so I get a larger surface area to make it quicker and I can easily manipulate it as needed around my eyes and nose. I guess I am just not gifted enough to get the brushes to work try as I might, oh well, luckily I found this. Be warned, I like a light to light-medium coverage so I don't know if this will work for you if you want medium to full coverage. Works great for what I want though.

I love IT cosmetics but this is a joke. You can buy these for $1 anywhere. Not that gullible yet!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by 218jj Better options
There are so many makeup sponges out there-just like BE spawned the mineral makeup craze the Beauty Blender has done the same. This version doesn't cut it for me unfortunately. It is large even before saturating with water, and once wet it still has a very firm feel so you are not able to get the appropriate bounce on the skin that you would with other sponges out there. I really like many of IT Cosmetics items, this was not one of them.
Rated 4 out of 5 by FlowergardenNJ Works great!
I first rec'd this with one of the IT Cosmetics foundations. Later I purchased several more by themselves. I use this sponge slightly damp and with a stippling technique, and my foundation goes on great and looks terrific. Very natural looking and not heavy. Some have tried to compare it to another brand of blending sponge. Sure, one could compare them, but they're not the same composition. Each works very well in my experience, so it's up to you whether you prefer one over the other. For those comparing, this one is somewhat larger, even dampened, and not quite as squishy. If you catch this brand on sale, this sponge can be considerably less expensive than the other brand's.

This blends any of my cosmetics exactly the same as the higher priced beauty blender. The only difference I see is that it does not get the cuts in it like the beauty blender. I received this as a gift, and I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by jeannie47 Love It !!!!!
I don't understand other review as mine is the complete opposite. My makeup goes on so smoothly with this sponge. It's easy to use and makes my makeup look flawless.
I stipple it on so there's no tugging on my skin and it blends beautifully. I also like the moisture on my skin. Thanks to IT Cosmetics for coming up with this idea for putting on liquid foundation.
Rated 1 out of 5 by sun8shine Not very good - get a beauty blender instead
I received this with the O2 foundation. This is more expensive than a beauty blender and nowhere near as good. It is very hard even when wet and very heavy compared to a beauty blender and I found that it absorbed product when used. A beauty blender properly used will give you a beautiful, natural looking, blended finish. This tool does not do that. I would not recommend since a beauty blender is much better and it is less expensive. It Cosmetics makes some excellent brushes and great products but this is one you should pass on.
