Imagine my surprise when I picked up a pack of Swisspers Mini Blending Sponges for a mere $2.98 at the evil empire recently (Walmart). These little blending sponge beauties are perfect for blending out concealer under your eyes or even for using with cream highlights or super pigmented blushes that you want to apply as a sheer wash of color on cheeks. Each pack holds two different colored mini sponges and they are identical to the the $18 Beautyblende Micro Mini Duo.
I can’t recall, because I’m having one of those days, where I originally tried the Beautyblender Micro Mini. I know I didn’t buy a duo for myself but I recall the mini came with another palette, product, or something!? I was smitten with it on first try. It’s a rather handy little tool that’s ultra small and deal for patting concealer under eyes or around your face or working with cream highlighters or even using it with products like E.L.F.’s ultra pigmented Studio HD Blush as it’ll sheer the formula out and allow for a pretty, natural finish. I used mine until it tore. It’s a little bit of a pain to cleanse it since it is very tiny but I loved the small size none the less.
I have to admit I never paid $18 to replace it though. Far be it for me to begrudge myself something I love due to a price but lord knows, to of those little sponges at $18 seemed a lot of money.
Imagine my delight and surprise when I rather randomly came across Swisspers Mini Blending Sponges. These are $2.98 a pack and are just as good as Beautyblender’s version! They are dense but soft and work a treat for all the things I listed above. I especially love them for using them to apply thicker concealers like Tarte’s Shape Tape.
If you loved Beautyblender Micro Mini Blending Sponges as much as I did but hate the price these Swisspers Mini Blending Sponges are perfect for you!
You need them.
