THIS BEAUTY TOOL IS CAUSING A FRENZY
Once in a while something new is released that causes a stir.In the beauty world this thing is now the ‘Silisponge’. Of course traditionally a sponge is supposed to be absorbent and,well…spongey. If you know what I mean. It is supposed to absorb excess product as you use it to blend face product such as foundation,concealer or powder. Watch my video on how to use a makeup sponge below:
Now, the silisponge is a sponge-shaped tool only that it’s made of silicone. Many beauty gurus on Youtube have tested it from Jackie Aina, Jeffree Star, Tati and Wayne Goss. Here is what the creators, Molly Cosmetics, say about this silisponge:
“…Wasting products is history now cos, of course, it doesn’t soak in a thing! The foundation needed is literally just half the amount compared to directly using brush or sponge. Spreading product with it will take some getting used to, final blending can always be finished with oval brush or usual sponge (for example beautyblender), that means washing the oval brush or the sponge will be minimized and they will last a whole lot longer. It is ideal for people who don’t like messy fingers during makeup. AND I bet you can imagine cleaning THIS APPLICATOR will literally take no more effort than rubbing it with a little soap and rinsing with some luke warm water. If you are a professional makeup artist, can you imagine how exciting it is that you can use it on one client/model, clean it with a makeup remover and sanitizing spray, and then you can use it on another client/model immediately just like that? Throwing away disposable sponge can totally be minimized!!!!”
From the claims it is safe to say that it is a unique object with some value proposition. But another argument is that people can just use their fingers to do what the silisponge does, which is apply product to the face. I have seen some people using silicon bra inserts or çhicken cutlets’in the place of a silisponge. Which is hilarious! I wouldn’t really buy the silisponge, unless I had tons of money to spare and even so,I may end up not using it that much.What are your thoughts on this hyped invention?
