So I finally got a chance to test out the infamous Silisponge. It's been making it's way through viral videos for a while now and I wanted to give it a shot. Unfortunately I'm a little late on the band wagon because this product was out of stock for a while but I finally have it to review. Check it out!
My order came with two sponges which is pretty nifty. I can have one for me and one for my kit.
It came shipped in this simple foil pouch.
You can see that it's pretty thick. It's soft but still got a firmness to it. I tried it with a bunch of products - foundation, highlight, and contour.
Overall, I found that it was a little awkward to hold. It really should have a smaller end so you can fit it into small areas like around the eyes. I found that it was able to apply product to my face but it didn't really look good - it just sat on top of my skin. The clean freak in me loves that you can clean this really easily and it's a more sanitary product since there are no pores or bristles that harvest bacteria.
But honestly, I'll stick with my beauty blender and brushes. I just don't like the way product looks when applied.
I purchased my SiliSponge from Molly Cosmetics. It's not expensive, you can get two for under $10 but they're always sold out and then once you do order it, it takes a while to ship. However, I notice a ton of brands are now selling their own version. Have you tried the silisponge? Let me know in the comments below!
