The New Avon Pro Makeup Blender

Let me start by saying that I am an independent Avon representative.

I recently ordered and tested out Avon's new Pro Makeup Blender. Here are my thoughts and first impressions:

I was really hoping this would be an inexpensive alternative to other beauty sponges on the market. Sadly, it is not. This sponge is very big and while that may sound good, it actually makes it quite difficult to control. Another downfall is that it's so hard I find my foundation actually separating as I'm trying to blend it. It also is a little uncomfortable when bouncing this on my face. The last thing I noticed is that the foundation stays more on the sponge than applies on my face. So that's not good. I'm hoping Avon will try again with this product and produce something that is comparable to other sponges. I believe they can!!

I compared it to both the original Beauty Blender and the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. In the photos, I'm showing it's size against the original Beaty Blender and both have been soaked in water then wrung out.
