When you’re truly, madly, deeply addicted to makeup, you’re willing to spend every last dollar to your name on every damn thing. But when you’re broke, you need to curb your cosmetics budget. Makeup dupes can help.

Dupes are simply the cheaper version of the expensive products with almost the same quality. They’re usually similar in color and/or consistency. While the higher-end products typically last longer and have more impressive benefits, dupes are nothing to scoff at. There are almost as lovely as the expensive ones too!

Fenty Beauty Precision Makeup Sponge dupe: The Blending Pearl by Breena Beauty

The Blending Pearl is the closest thing to Rihanna’s line, Fenty Beauty. So this beauty sponge is soft latex-free beauty sponge that can be used both dry & wet. The rounded side can be used for wider parts of your face like foundation/cheeks, the pointed side can be for hard to reach places like your under eyes/concealer and the flat side is for baking. The unique shape of this sponge also makes my makeup routine even easier. The Blending Pearl will expand in size and become much softer when it is damp. It also can be used when it is dry or semi-dry for face powder application.
