Review: Oh! K Cosmetic Sponge

Since finding, and loving, the Boots Precision Makeup Sponge I have been converted to the beauty blender style sponge and wanted to try a few different ones to see how they compare to each other and, eventually, the original.

This post has a combination of orders from Amazon, ASOS and Superdrug but there’s also a couple of things I won on the village fete tombola that I thought I’d throw in here as well.

As you can see from the photo this post covers a lot of different things, most of them I’ll be posting about on here some time in the near future. Most of them are beauty products but there’s some DVDs and books thrown in there too.
