Hourglass shaped makeup sponges has been all the rage amongst makeup enthusiasts and MUA’s alike as they are said to work great for TV, Film, Print, Weddings and just everyday makeup. I always wanted to try the Beauty Blender but just could not bring myself to pay $20 for a damn sponge. Uh uh. When I spotted the Graftobian GlamourGrip HD Beauty Sponge in my bag from TMS Blogger Preview I was amped and couldn’t wait to try it. I had to see what the hype is all about behind these types of sponges.

The GlamourGrip Sponge uses Graftobian’s second skin sponge material and the popular hourglass shape to create a sponge that is lightweight and easy to hold while applying makeup. The tapered end works great for applying under eye concealer and makeup around the nose while the rounded larger bottom is great for larger areas of the face such as the cheeks, chin and forehead.



The sponge is really soft and even more so when wet, in which it doubles in size. I used it dry the first time around with my Cover Girl Queen All Day Flawless Foundation and found that it applied my makeup really well, it really blended it into the skin and left a flawless finish. This is how my makeup came out the first time that I tried the GlamourGrip…


I loved the results but realized that I had to use more product as the sponge soaked up a lot of the foundation (as with all sponges) so I’ve since been using it wet. I just spritz the sponge with my MAC Fix + until it’s damp but you can also run it under water and squeeze out the excess. The finish is just as flawless but I get to use less product with similar results.The GlamourGrip Sponge is reusable and easy to wash, I use my Dr Bronner’s Peppermint Castile Soap. I really like this sponge and may purchase a few for my mua kit but I don’t know since I am able to achieve the same results with a good old brush or my Alcone sponges which are much cheaper. I may just try out the Beauty Blender now though to see if it’s worth all of the hype.

The Graftobian GlamourGrip HD Beauty Sponge comes in 4 colors and retails for $14.99 each or $39.99 for a pack of four. You may purchase at
