I bought mine in Natural and True Beige since those were the two that seemed to be not too dark and not too light. The only problem is they are SO yellow! As you can see from my swatches they definitely pull a yellow tone, even the Natural shade. That was kinda of disappointing. I think the Natural shade should have been more neutral. I didn’t see many cool tones or neutral tones, so you might have to mix it with another foundation if you are cool or neutral.
I have very dry skin and for me I feel like these just didn’t work. It attached to my dry patches and made my skin look cakey and didn’t wear throughout the day like I would have expected. I will say that it is medium to full coverage and covers everything nicely. This does settle into fine lines and pores.
I think that if you have oily skin this might work better for you but it just didn’t do it for me. I far prefer the Cover FX Custom Cover Dropsfor my skin.
Let me know if you have tried them and if you like them.

Get your quick beauty fix with this all-in-one Quickie Blending Sponge. It effortlessly applies cream concealers, foundations and contouring formulas and is ideal for blending the multi-tasking shape tape contour concealer without creasing into fine lines. For natural, buildable coverage, apply the soft sponge wet or dry, using the larger domed side to cover redness, discolorations and uneven skin tone. The opposite precision tip can mask acne and dark spots, while blending around smaller areas of the face, like the nose, brow bone and undereye. You can also use it to blend out your contour and highlight, pressing the tapered side along angles of the face to mimic shadow and light. Designed for quick, mess-free applications, this versatile, travel friendly sponge is durable and washable so you can use it again and again for an effortless, everyday look.
I was hoping this sponge would have been a new cheaper alternative to the Beauty Blender but it is nothing close. This sponge is VERY dense and it doesn’t really do anything as you are trying to buff and blend your foundation into your face. Whereas the Beauty Blender is very squishy and bouncy and creates a flawless airbrushed look to your face. This sponge is just way too dense and when you get it wet it doesn’t really stay wet, it just dries.
I also don’t like the shape to this sponge. It is wide and toward the top the point isn’t narrow like the Beauty Blender so it makes it difficult to get into the small areas when doing concealer.
Save your money and just buy the Beauty Blender instead.
