Nanshy Blending Sponge

Nanshy 3 in 1 blending sponge

Hello! If any of you took part in the BHTwitter Party you will have seen the brand Nanshy gifting their Marvel 4 in 1 Makeup Blending Sponge something I was drawn to straight away! I constantly seek new makeup brushes and sponges to help me get that flawless look with my makeup and having never heard of Nanshy was quite interested so you can imagine how happy I was when I got this little sponge through my door!
Nanshy are a British brand that are 100% cruelty free, they sell a range of makeup brushes, accessories and sponges at very reasonable prices compared to what some high end products cost!

The Blending sponge it came in a lovely sleek box and was packaged really well not a dent to the box! The actual sponge at first doesn't even feel like a sponge it feels very smooth and if I'm honest I thought this would soak up my foundation and concealer straight away because of the texture but was pleasantly surprised when the blending from this sponge was beyond my expectations. Like other spongers this is reusable and easy to wash. Now I did wonder why this was a 4 in 1 because it's a sponge...I didn't think this would do that much but I was wrong. The pointed tip at the top makes it easy to cover small blemishes, get's to corners easily and hard to reach areas. The 45 degree angled, rounded flat shape allows stippling, The large round bottom can be used to cover large areas of the face or for the sponge to stand when drying or when using it so it doesn't fall or roll around and the waist is an easy grip making applying makeup a lot easier!

When wet I wouldn't say the sponge expands like the Real Techniques sponge does but for me this isn't anything to complain about, I personally prefer using sponges dry! It didn't take the sponge long to dry and it has now become part of my daily makeup routine. 
I apply my concealer with the Nanshy sponge and I absolutely love it, compared to my Real Techniques sponge I prefer it! It blends my makeup really well giving me amazing coverage compared to my Real Techniques sponge and it didn't suck all my product up, although my Real Techniques sponge doesn't I can definitely see more product on my RT sponge after using it compared to my Nanshy sponge. Both Sponges are similar in price with the RT sponge coming in at £5.99 and the Nanshy sponge coming in at £5.95 there really isn't any difference.

I can see this sponge taking the spotlight off of my RT sponge for quite some time!
