As any makeup sponge devotee knows, switching from traditional brushes to a more flexible applicator can completely change your glam game. Ever since the BeautyBlender arrived on the scene, legions of beauty lovers have come to rely on the domed pink sponge to bring out the best in every kind of base product.
Now, it appears that another sponge has arrived to change your daily routine, and it’s like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Meet the Molly Cosmetics Silisponge: an oblong, squished tool that has the Internet losing its mind.
At first glance, the Silisponge doesn’t really look like something that belongs in your kit. It reminds us a little bit of a bra insert, or perhaps a deflated raindrop cake. But, as the makers have explained, it’s designed to blend in product while minimizing waste (due to the material’s lack of absorption). Additionally, since it’s completely transparent, it allows you to see exactly what you’re doing through the sponge.
Here’s why it’s being referred to as the new BeautyBlender:
(1) This see-through, patty-like tool has a non-porous silicone surface (made out of silicone and encapsulated in a super-flexible material called thermoplastic polyurethane) that won’t soak in your foundation, highlighter, or cream blush.
(2) Because of its smooth texture, you don’t have to use as much product, and it’s easy to clean because all you do is rinse it off with soap and water, and you’re done! You don’t have to wait for it to dry, nor do you have to wait until the water runs clear, like you do when you’re cleaning makeup brushes — you literally just wash and go.
3) It lasts longer than a makeup sponge; just replace it when it starts to look weathered.
If you’re tired of losing half your bottle of foundation to your makeup sponge, you just might need this clear silicone applicator like the SiliSponge. This $9 (RM39.93) tool — discovered by Reddit users and created by indie beauty brand Molly Cosmetics — hails from Hong Kong and is here to save your makeup day.
Sure, it resembles a silicone implant or chicken cutlet, but man, does it get the makeup job done.-MYNEWSHUB.CC
