The beauty world has not been the same since Beautyblender gave us their teardrop-shaped makeup sponge. The brand bestowed upon us an indispensable tool to apply foundation and powder to create a flawless, airbrushed finish. The Beautyblender, however, is not the cheapest tool in the shed, especially for those who are budget-conscious. Moreover, if you’re a germophobe that washes your sponge after every use, you’ll find that your sponge can breakdown prematurely.
If you’re looking to save some money, we’ve rounded up 10 sponges below $20 that will help you blend your makeup seamlessly without breaking the bank.
