As usual, I am going to write an honest, no BS review of this sponge. I don't own a beauty blender, and this is my first RT sponge. I have been using locally made versions of these sponges before, so my point of comparison would be just the local ones. First impression: In its dry state, it's super cute and super soft! I like to squish it like crazy! Nothing like my previous pink sponge. Then it expands when wet/damp and it's super duper soft. I used the bigger side to apply my foundation and it's super easy to use, the texture is really soft on the face and I love it. It is way better than the local one I have. I think that the smaller side is for the smaller curves on your face but I find that it's hard to do that if you're holding on to the base. NOW, on to the bad side. It's hard to control the small side of the sponge. For me, it's no at all useful. It got ripped on my first use! Noooo! It got ripped on the neck part of it-- the middle part that connects the small and the big part. To think, that I am not even dragging it to my face. My thoughts: not durable at all. I think that it would be more useful if the two sides are separated so it would be easier to control. Now, I have to be extra careful so as not to tear it completely apart. It's sad coz I really would have loved it if not for the durability issue. I'm giving it 3 stars only coz the only part I like about it is the big part and I think it's a waste of my money coz it got damaged on my first use. I should have gotten the original miracle sponge pala. Sayang. But hey, I can still make it work using the big side.
