Hello babs! Tonight I’m coming at you with Hit or Miss post about the famous Silicone Sponge… now mine isn’t the exact one but it’s Makeup Revolution’s take on it. I’ve been wanting to test it out for so long after seeing so many people talk about it so I picked mine up on Superdrug for £4.99. If you’re in the US, I know you can pick this up on MollyCosmetics for $9.90. If you’re interest in finding out my thoughts on this product then keep on reading…
This silicone sponge comes in tear drop shape in an almost foil type packaging that is easily resealable, which is great as you can keep it in their safely instead of it being free in your makeup storage/bag. You can see the sponge through the packaging but it does have silver at the back. On the front it has the name of the brand and the product in rose gold on a black background and the back of the packet is completely rose gold.
When I first took the silicone sponge out the packet it actually reminded me of a chicken fillet or a sole support you would put into your shoe haha! I applied my foundation directly onto the sponge and the great thing I noticed is that it doesn’t absorb the product like some sponges will which is great. This means that you don’t have to use that much product as it all applies to the face and doesn’t absorb. The sponge was ok at blending my foundation but I wouldn’t say it was full coverage and it struggled to get into the creases around my nose. Once I had finished using it I thought I would clean it so I could put it away and it turns out it is super easy to clean which is really good as you dont have to spend 10 minutes like you would trying to clean your beauty blender.
(Heres a picture, the left half is with the silicone sponge and the right half is with a beauty blender)
You can’t really see much of a difference between both halves but I noticed around my head it was quite patchy and it didnt apply very well on my nose or around it. The beauty blender applied it much smoother and blended better.
This would have to be a miss in my opinion! I just feel my foundation applied so much better with a beauty blender than it did with this sponge. It’s not bad if you’re someone who likes to test out products, but I would personally not use this in my everyday routine… it was a good little thing to test out though.
If you’ve used a silicone sponge then let me know your thoughts, I’m intrigued to know how it worked for you!
Thanks for reading!
See you in my next post…
