I received this Real Techniques Dual Ended Expert Sponge in PR from FarleyCo Marketing. It just started falling apart after two weeks. It is possible I got a dud. You are supposed to use this dry. I used the orange side for foundation and the pink side for concealer, although you can use this with liquids and powders. I liked the application and how my skin looked but I prefer a dampened sponge. Highly recommend the Real Technique Miracle Complexion Sponge instead.
