Behind every enviable complexion is a makeup sponge that’s getting the job done. And, before you think this is one for the kids, we encourage you to give it a try. For camouflaging fine lines, and feigning that youthful glow, there’s nothing quite like a makeup blending sponge. The Original Beauty Blender sets the standard in beauty sponges and is an absolute no-brainer if money is no object. If you’re looking for more precise application for concealer or tight areas around the nose or lips, try a makeup sponge for concealer.
