Makeup sponges have become a new staple for any beauty lover’s makeup collection. They do an excellent job of blending both cream and powder products, particularly with foundation and concealer. One of the most well known makeup sponges on the market is the BeautyBlender, which sits at the high price of $20 at stores such as Sephora. If you’re on a budget, or simply don’t want to spend that kind of money on a sponge, there are several dupes for the infamous makeup sponge on the market. Here are 10 of the best BeautyBlender dupes from the drugstore.
One of my personal favorites, this sponge does an excellent job of blending foundation, especially liquid foundation, and concealer into the skin. This sponge features a large, rounded area that is perfect for covering larger portions of your face, and a more precise tip to help reach those smaller areas of the face, such as the under eye and beside the nose. This sponge also features a flat edge, which is perfect for contour and baking underneath the contour and the under eye area. This sponge is made with latex-free foam which helps blend products evenly. This sponge is incredibly budget-friendly, costing less than $5.
If you are looking for a makeup sponge to specifically help blend in your foundation, concealer and any other complexion product, this sponge is an excellent dupe. This sponge features mostly round edges, with a bit of a flatter edge at the bottom to help blend foundation over a large area of the face. This sponge features a slightly precise tip on the other end that can help blend concealer in more precise areas, such as acne spots or under the eye. This sponge does not absorb too much liquid product, making it perfect for blending out foundation and concealer. This product sits at a very affordable price, at only $8.
This beautiful, marveled patterned makeup sponge is an excellent option for all things cream and liquid. If you want a makeup sponge to apply your primers, or complexion and cheek products, this sponge is perfect for all three. This sponge is bigger than the BeautyBlender, but still holds that same egg-shape of the infamous makeup sponge. This makeup sponge comes with a very affordable price, costing only $5 at your local Target.
If you’re looking for an affordable precision makeup sponge that will help you cover every inch of your face, this sponge is an excellent choice to look into. This purple sponge features a flat, large bottom surface to help blend liquid and cream products into larger areas of the face. On the other end, the sponge ends in a much more precise tip, making it excellent for blending products in smaller areas, such as the under eye, eyebrows, or the corners of the nose. This makeup sponge is frequently on sale on the BH Cosmetics website, but even without the discount, this product retails for only $5.
If you’re looking for a multifaceted makeup sponge that can help out with any of your cream cheek products, this makeup sponge is perfect for you. This sponge has a very unique shape, with the sides featuring two flat edges of different sizes. These two flat edges are perfect for baking different areas of your face, along with applying cream contour. The top of the sponge is a thin flat edge that is perfect for precise application of cream products, whether you’re looking to contour, apply cream highlight, or blend concealer under your eye. The bottom of the sponge has a rounded edge for all over application. This sponge also sits at a very affordable retail price, costing only $4.99.
If you want some variety in your makeup sponges, this trio comes with sponges of three different sizes for only $12, less than the price of just one BeautyBlender. These egg-shaped, latex-free sponges come in small, medium and large sizes to offer the ultimate versatility to your makeup application. These sponges can be used for liquid, cream and powder products.
Featuring a similar shape to the Morphe makeup sponge, this product features a specialized plush material to ensure a flawless application of your cream and liquid products. This material also does not absorb as much of the product, making sure you’re not wasting any product. This sponge is also very affordable, retailing at $5.19.
This is the most unique makeup sponge on this list, but the different shape makes this product stand out when compared to the infamous BeautyBlender. This sponge has three flat edges, with two on the sides of the sponge and one on the bottom, which allow for more precise application and baking. The other side of this sponge is rounded, which allows for an overall application of cream and liquid cream products. While this sponge is the same size as the BeautyBlender, the benefits it offers make it worth the price.
If you want an exact dupe for the BeautyBlender, this egg shaped makeup sponge will do the trick for you. This sponge is a little bit bigger than the infamous sponge, but the egg shape makes it very versatile for complexion and cheek products. This sponge is a fraction of the cost of a BeautyBlender, coming in at $3.97 on Amazon.
To close out the list, we have a sponge by Sephora that holds a similar shape to the Morphe sponge. Reviews of this sponge rave about its effectiveness with blending out products when damp, giving your product a flawless and even blend. This product is a bit more expensive than many of the sponges on this list, sitting at $14.
