Now a days, there are so many beauty sponges on the market, we’ve truly lost count. Don’t get me wrong, I was a ride or die for the original Beautyblender upon it’s release but it was killing me and my wallet having to spend $20 each time I needed a new beauty sponge. Although the Beautyblender is considered the OG, there are a ton of beauty sponges out there that create beautiful makeup looks for a more affordable price. I’ve narrowed it down to three of my favorite beauty sponges on the market that I know you’ll love just as much as I do. Check them out below!

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, $6

Ah, a true dupe for the Beautyblender is this bad boy from Real Techniques. It has a flat side that makes it easy to bake and contour. I love that it has a rounded tip to get all those areas around the eyes when applying concealer.

Sigma 3DHD Blender, $15

Okay, $15 For a beauty sponge, you’re probably thinking ‘How is this any different than the Beautyblender?’ Trust me when I say, it’s worth it! The sponge has three edges, three! It is so soft and helps sculpt the face to perfection.

BEAKEY 5 Pcs Makeup Sponge Set, $9.99

I saw these beauty sponges everywhere in the beauty world online and I knew I had to try them out myself. For $10, you get five sponges. Although I was skeptical, I gave it a try and I’m truly obsessed. They’re just as soft as the Beautyblender and the best part about it is that they do not absorb all of the product.
