Review│ecoTOOLS Perfecting Blender Duo

PURCHASED

You guys, I think my trusty Beauty Blender finally has finally got some competition. ecoTOOLS' perfecting blender sponges have been rocking my world as of late. Not only are they super good, they're also pretty affordable, which is just awesome. It's a good time when you find beauty gems at reasonable and bargain prices!

ecoTOOLS Perfecting Blender Duo

ecoTOOLS' beauty sponges are latex free, vegan and dermatologist-tested. They are designed with an innovative and unique EcoFoam® technology, that consists of 70% plant based materials. Pretty cool, huh?

The sponges come in two sizes:

  • Large Base Blender: It's the most flexible of the duo and it's handy if you are going for a light and buildable coverage. I like using this one with my liquid and cream foundations-it helps blends them out like a dream!

  • Mini Detail Blender: This one is much firmer and smaller than the large base blender. If you want a more precise and fuller coverage, this is the sponge to reach for. The mini detail blender does a nice job at applying and blending out concealer in smaller and hard-to-reach areas, like under the eyes and sides of the nose, etc. Bonus: This sponge is also great to use with loose powders. It picks up and distributes the perfect amount of powder on the skin, when setting and "baking" areas of the face.

In a nutshell, I am so impressed by these beauty sponges from ecoTOOLS. They are really easy to use, and they blend liquid and cream makeup seamlessly onto my skin, resulting in a natural finish every time. I like that you have the option to use the sponges wet or dry. Personally, I like to dampen my sponges, since doing so helps expand and soften them, into a more bouncier texture-which feels so nice and light on the skin during application. I also notice that the sponges soak up less product when they are damp which is nice since I am all for not wasting product. Hey, foundations and concealers can be pricey!

ecoTOOLS literally thought of everything when it came to the structure of the sponges. They both consist of a flat surface which is great for applying product to larger areas of the face, a round base to help achieve seamless blending, and a wedge-shaped tip to guide and blend out precise lines (my favorite feature, since I can carefully and effortlessly blend out concealer under my eye area without worrying about disturbing the shape of my eyeshadow on the outer corners of my eye). 


Overall
It's very rare that I come across an affordable beauty sponge that performs and feels just as nice as my beauty blender (review). Real Technique's Miracle Complexion Sponge (review) topped my list of a good affordable option; But ever since being introduced to the ecoTOOLS perfecting blender duo, it has had to bump down a spot since the ecoTOOLS perfecting blender duo comes very close to being just as good as my more pricier beauty blender.

If you happen to come across the ecoTOOLS Perfecting Blender Duo, don't hesitate to pick it up and give it a try. I am pretty sure you will be just as pleased with them as I was. 100% recommend!
