Created in 2008, the Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge is a non-latex sponge that seems suited to blending liquid and creams on facial contours. Like the Pink Egg, this sponge fondly nicknamed the Blue Peep by beauty lovers has a rounded base and tapered end. However, the Sonia Kashuk version has a special indent that enhances grip.
A much cheaper alternative (US$9.99) to the Beautyblender (US$19.95), this sponge was difficult to find for a while – the SK shelves at Target were swept clean of them! Unlike the Pink Egg which is made in the USA, the Blue Peep is produced in China. They seem to be made of the same material but the Sonia Kashuk feels denser. That said, I’m not sure if this is because I’ve washed my Beautyblender several times. I haven’t tried my Blue Peep yet, so I’m uncertain about how it compares to the Beautyblender, application-wise. I will review it as soon as I can! :)
