PACKAGING:It comes packaged in a hard plastic transparent box, just like the other RT brushes. It has a small plastic holder on which the sponge rests.The packaging is nothing fancy but it looks clean and easy to be kept.

THE SPONGE:The sponge itself is orange colored which looks really bright and poppy as compared to black and white handles of the brushes.Though,after usage,this looks the messiest!! :p

MY VIEWS:So first thing that came to my mind when I saw this was the inexpensive dupe of the ‘Beauty Blender’!!!Beauty Blender costs 20$ and this is the 6$ version of the same.I haven’t used Beauty Blender so I cannot comment on its quality and performance.However,may bloggers who have used both consider RT sponge to be a dupe for the Beauty Blender.

However,the shape isn’t exactly similar to the Beauty Blender as the RT one has a flat surface so smoothen the foundation application.

The sponge has to be dampened prior using it so that the product doesn’t get absorbed and it provides hydration as well.It has to be soaked in water then squeeze out the excess water (the sponge should be damp and not dripping water).The sponge increases in size when it is dampened.I usually apply the foundation in dots all over the face and use this in dab-dab motion to get the best results.The ares that should be used for face are:

– The rounded sides to blend large areas of the face
– The precision tip to cover blemishes and imperfections
– The flat edge for contours around the eyes and nose.

I feel that the concealer applies beautifully with the pointed edge and it looks flawless and streak-free.The sponge is very, very soft. It feels really good on my face when I apply my foundation and you can get a flawless look, without having any brush strokes. My foundation is perfectly blended and my face looks more fresh.I am loving using this sponge these days.

However,the major con of this beauty is that it stains a lot even after washing 5 times,the foundation stains remain. 😦

RATING:4.75/5

RECOMMENDATION:I highly highly recommend trying this out.If you like using sponges than brushes then you must give this a try.It provides amazing results and you will definitely see a difference in the foundation application.
