6 Beauty Blender Dupes That Are Just As Great As The Original

The beauty blender isn’t just the name of that spongey makeup tool; it’s an actual brand too! The original beautyblender® was created by Ree Ann Silva with the goal of applying makeup with ease. “The innovative beautyblender® sponge holds water, not product, evenly distributing and blending the perfect amount of cream, powder, or liquid formulas into skin without lines,” Sephora states on their website. Since the tool’s debut, beauty blenders in different shapes, colors and sizes have appeared on the market, many of them much cheaper than the original (the original beautyblender® will set you back $20)! If you’re looking to flawlessly blend your liquid and cream makeup while saving a few bucks, check out these 6 beauty blender dupes that are just as great as the original!

EcoTools Total Perfecting Foundation Blender ($4.18, originally $5.99)

The EcoTools Foundation Blender features a flat, slanted design for perfect surface blending and a precision edge for smaller features on the face. It also comes with its own resting cup!

“At first I was doubting this was even going to work. I own the real beauty blender, and the real techniques beauty sponge, yet I find myself reaching for this one the most often.” -Bia

NYX Professional Makeup Cosmetic Sponge ($7.99)

Blend foundation effortlessly with the NYX Cosmetic Sponge. It features a flat, slanted design for larger face surfaces like cheeks and forehead. It comes in 3 different designs for specific blending: “Flawless Finish” (pictured), “Precision Blending,” and “Teardrop.”

“I’ve had several different kinds of makeup sponges but none of them work as well as this one. I just bought it in the store yesterday and I’m in love. Make sure to dampen it with water first. Definitely will be buying more of these.” -makeup_junkie1487

e.l.f. Blending Sponge ($6.00)

e.l.f. is one of our favorite makeup brands because they are cruelty-free and affordable. This blending sponge features a wider bottom to apply liquids and creams to larger surfaces, and a narrow pointy top for a more precise application.

“Super happy I bought this. The best sponge I have ever used. SO SOFT and expands so well without absorbing all my makeup.” -hayco

L’Oreal® Paris Infallible Beauty Blender ($6.99)

The L’Oreal Beauty Blender is flatter than most blenders and has slanted edges to achieve the perfect highlight and contour combo.

“These are nice because they are shaped to fit all areas of the face! It makes it a lot easier to get in corners or smaller spots! It also absorbs oil from the skin making your face look flawless! They are great for traveling or touching up while on the go!” -MirandaF

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge ($5.99)

The Real Techniques Complexion functions as a 3-in-1 applicator for large surfaces, small blemishes and imperfections, and for the area around the eyes and nose.

“I think I have bought this sponge like 5 times! It’s not too hard but not too soft so it’s the perfect texture for blending. It also doesn’t drink the product your using so your products will last longer.” -Joss

Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Precision Makeup Sponge 100 ($16.00)

The Fenty Makeup Sponge 100 is a little bit of a splurge, but you will still save a few bucks with this dupe. It’s latex-free and has 3 sides for blending perfection!

“This looks like just another sponge but I assure you it is not! it is better than any sponge I have tried. The flat side is perfect for applying the foundation and the short flat edge at the top great for concealer blend or contour. won’t be disappointed!” -crystallewilson
