Hello Readers, I am back with a new post – Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge Review. Apart from picking the closest shade of base makeup what ultimately imparts flawless look is the final finish of the product. Thus tools of makeup, specially makeup sponges play an important role here as much as selecting the correct shade and texture of foundation. On one hand, since Beauty Blender was launched everyone has been going gaga over its perfection in blending base makeup while on the other hand many brands tried making their dupes in the forms of makeup sponges, some of those worked while some failed. Lets see how this Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge fared for me.
Forever 21 has a line of products in Love & Beauty range. In India this range mostly has cute and affordable makeup accessories like brushes, makeup bags, mirror and other applicators. Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge is one among them. There are many variants of makeup sponges available at Forever 21 while this itself having at least two color variants. Another kind is a sponge brush and then one is also an exact dupe of a beauty blender, however the latter is mostly out of stock whether online or offline. Lets move on to my Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge Review.

What Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge claims
My experience with Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge
Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge is a cute teardrop shaped duo colored sponge packed in a simple see through zip pack which can be used to store and carry the sponge as well. It is sold at a super affordable price which fits in almost every budget. Only word of caution is that sponges need commitment of cleansing prior to next usage as they might become a breeding ground for bacteria which can cause breakouts.
To start application one needs to hold this Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge under running water and then squeeze out the excess water. Now it is ready for makeup application. While original beauty blender is said to be extremely soft, this makeup sponge is appears a little hard while squeezing. However, it is enough cushiony and gentle on the skin. Also unlike the original beauty blender this does not change its size after coming in contact with water. I dot my foundation all over with fingers and use this Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge to blend it in. Firstly, it needs to be tapped on the skin gently and then swiped across to get the desired look. This same sponge can be used to apply concealer, face powder plus its shape makes it easy to apply product in difficult to reach areas too.
I have to say that Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge?does its job pretty well. Blending any base makeup with fingers or foundation brush imparts a cakey look while blending with this makeup sponge means getting a lovely natural look. The excess product is absorbed by the sponge which otherwise remains stuck at the sides of the face no matter how much one tries to blend it in. Unlike regular beauty sponges which more or less cost the same this Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge does not eat up a lot of product so there is not much wastage too. Whenever I set my makeup with a primer and wet sponge application, it lasts super long. This is highly recommended to people who want to try a dupe before investing in the original one or girls like me who wants an affordable applicator for their everyday makeup. At this price it is too much to draw comparison with the professional beauty blender but the results with this are definitely praiseworthy.
Overall Forever 21 Love & Beauty Makeup Sponge is a super affordable and praiseworthy makeup applicator which aids in smooth application and blending of base makeup to impart natural look ultimately.
