Avon Precision Grip Teardrop Blender

Unique shape and suede-like texture helps blend makeup seamlessly by eliminating visible lines and streaks. 2 3/8" x 1 5/8". Polyurethane.
Price $4.99

Use wide, rounded area for overall face coverage and blendability.
Use the pointed end on hard-to-reach or delicate areas, such as under eyes or near nose and mouth.

I do not own the "Famous Beauty Blender" so I won't be able to compare it to that.
I do own the Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge and I can see the difference in these 2.
Size it is the same size as the SK sponge.
It feels way softer and bouncier than the SK sponge.
The texture is not rough like other sponges, SK was too rough on me and the makeup would get so stuck in the sponge that even washing it wouldn't help.
This sponge feels softer and has a suede/velvety texture in my opinion.
When you wet this sponge you can actually feel it and see that it got bigger and bouncier.
Application wise, I press my liquid foundation with this sponge onto my face and it does give me a more flawless effect, since you are just pressing in the product and not really moving it around. I washed the sponge after I used it and no makeup stayed behind like on my SK sponge.
Overall I did liked this sponge, like I said I do not own the BB and I have seen a few videos where they say that Avon's Blender it is not comparable to the BB, but in my opinion is a good sponge for liquid foundation application for those that like to use sponges.
I paid $4.99 for this brush which I believe is way cheaper than the BB.
I am tempted in buying the BB just to see the difference in both.
So far I am happy with my sponge.

Hope this review was helpful to you guys.
