Bounce your way to a flawless base with one of the sponges below!

SPLURGE: Wunder2 Wunderblend, P400

Use the rounded bottom for large surface areas and the tapered end for hard-to-reach spots. Take note, this sponge is made from latex-free material, so it doesn’t tug on the skin! You can apply your makeup just like the pros: with ease, precision, and comfort.
