Neon Green Applicator Makeup Sponge by JGOB Review

I received this item in exchange for an honest review.

Today I'm going to be reviewing the JGOB blending sponge for you and I also will be holding a giveaway! These blending sponges are another one of those items which I kept seeing everywhere and I kept thinking "oh I want to try that!"

This is how my sponge arrived in the box (I had ordered some other things along with it so it was a big box.) Oops. 


Our premium Neon Green makeup blender beauty sponges are made from the highest quality materials we could find. No expense was spared in the making as we wanted to provide the most superior makeup sponge we could offer. It has a curved surface which helps contour hard to reach spots of the face and will not absorb too much makeup preventing waste and helping your makeup products last longer.

  • - PERFECT ABSORTION,  LESS WASTE - Some makeup sponges waste makeup by absorbing too much of it into the sponge. We have tested and created ours with the perfect density to help prevent wasting your makeup and having to wash it down the drain. Keep your makeup on your face and not in the sponge.
    - EXTREMELY SOFT TOUCH - We wanted to ensure that when our makeup sponge enables you to have a relaxing and enjoyable experience similar to that of a soft breeze touching your face beautiful face.
    -  CONTOURS HARD TO REACH SPOTS - Lets face it now all makeup sponges are built alike. Ours for example are quality controlled to ensure even the smallest defect in shape is eliminated from seeing daylight. With this type of quality you will expect that the shape of this sponge will reach the hard to blend spaces of your face while creating a perfect balance when used evenly.
    - TRAVEL CASE INCLUDED - Not everyone has all day to stay at home and its nice to bring the things in life that make a difference when freshening up. So each of our makeup sponges includes a plastic travel case so it can be stored in while not in use. Most sponges we have found are more likely to deteorate over time when exposed to certain elements outside their package. So we have created a unique travel pack that will allow you to put your makeup sponge in your purse or to jetset to your next destination with out worrying about it touching things it should not.
    - REUSABLE & EASY TO CLEAN - Why would anyone want to create more waste then what is necessary. We have designed our makeup sponge so it can be washed, gently squeezed to dry and used again. 

I was using this sponge for a few weeks before I finally read somewhere that you're supposed to wet it down first. Oops. That would have been good to know with some instructions.

(Why do these things never come with instructions?)

I had read one of the benefits of these sponges is that the makeup doesn't stick to the sponge so much so you actually don't lose makeup by having it all soaked up. Honestly, I didn't really notice a difference with the absorption of this sponge versus say the little sponge wedges. Here's a picture I took today and you can see that after several uses it definitely is tainted by my makeup.

I haven't used the carrying case at all but I know from the way it arrived that the case obviously doesn't stay shut when being jostled around a bunch.

This sponge is easy to use, and once I started wetting it down I fell in love. It creates a much more natural which I absolutely love. I always have a problem with my foundation looking too dry and cakey and yucky. When I use this sponge, my makeup is much more even and it's much more difficult to notice I'm even wearing foundation, which makes me happy. I'll definitely keep using this sponge and get a replacement when the time comes.

The JBOG makeup sponge is available on for $11.97 and is eligible for free shipping on orders of $35 or more.

I don't blog about makeup much but I just want to talk about my makeup for a second. I'm wearing Cover Girl Clean Normal Skin in Creamy Natural liquid foundation topped with Cover Girl + Olay pressed powder in light (I got this at 75% off last week, woohoo! yes, I love my Cover Girl foundation.)

I *finally* figured out my trick to applying eye makeup without getting raccoon eye last week (thank you Ipsy!) After doing my foundation, I start with mascara. Yes, I do mascara before eyeshadow. This seems so backwards but apparently it's what works for me. If I do the eyeshadow first, once I apply the mascara and then the eyeliner, I just end up with black smudges everywhere under my eyes and it's awful. I already have dark circles under my eyes, I don't need fake ones to highlight that fact :P

Anyway, I'm also wearing several products I received in my September Ipsy bag:  the treStique mini matte lip crayon in Nantucket Nude, Starlooks Pro Luxe Longwear eyeliner pen (from my August Ipsy bag), Pixi by Petra Mini Brow Trio in Shades of Brow. On my eyes which you can't really see, I applied First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (I forgot to apply it to my entire face first, oops) topped with my Nyx Ipsy eyeshadow trio which I really love. I'm pretty happy with all of these products so far.

Moving on.... at last, here's the giveaway :)
