I’m a total makeup hoarder, but that’s no surprise! So when I was going through my sample box I realized that I had yet to try the Ricky’s 3D Blender Sponge I received in one of my Ipsy bags awhile back. I decided to put that baby to good use and compare it with the famous Beauty Blender! So here are my thoughts on whether or not it’s a dupe.
Ricky’s Blender is definitely the closest sponge I’ve tried that is similar to the Beauty Blender, but it’s definitely NOT a dupe. The Beauty Blender has actually been patented, so no one will ever be able to come out with something exactly like it. I’ve tried plenty of other sponges, including cheap-y, no-name sponges from Amazon. None have come close to the original, not even the Real Technique’s Miracle Complexion Sponge.
If you are looking to buy something similar to the original and are wanting to save some cash, then the Ricky’s Blender will be your best option. Nothing will ever replace my beloved Beauty Blender, it’s SO good and I highly recommend it! If you are wanting to give the Beauty Blender a try, I actually found a twin pack for under $30! You can find it here! Such a great deal, I may order a backup for my backups! LOL!
Do you own a Beauty Blender? What’s your tool of choice when applying foundation?
Until next time beauties!
