Promising review: "Love this product! I'm a makeup artist and I have tried many beauty sponges but this right here is the exact dupe of the Beautyblender for half the price. I'm glad one of my clients introduced me to this sponge because from now on, this will be the only one I buy!" —Blanca A DeLeon

Promising review: "This is an exact dupe for the Beautyblender and I don't say that lightly, because I own at least 20 Beautyblenders. In fact, I even purchased a Beautyblender when I bought this item because I expected to be disappointed. Trying them out side-by-side I found them to be exactly the same. I've seen a lot of companies come out with beauty sponges they say are 'dupes' but this is the first time I've seen one that actually is." —Karen

Reviewers have even been kind enough to compare the Aesthetica Cosmetics sponge to the original black Beautyblender.

Promising review: "As a makeup junkie I own items at all price points, and I've been on the hunt for a dupe of the Beautyblender (BB). This one is as close as I've found. It's a little denser than the original BB but still great." —LeahC
