Which sponge is better?
I waited FOREVER to try a silicone sponge and now I finally have thanks to Snatch Cosmetics. I tested one over the past two weeks and found some surprising results. Here’s a list of the pros and cons of a silicone sponge so you can decide if this latest beauty trend is worth the hype.
The silicone sponge is really lightweight and easy to clean. You don’t have to get it damp before using it like a beauty blender. One swipe of some makeup removed can clean the entire sponge. With my beauty blender, it takes anywhere between 5-10 minutes to clean rather than the 5-10 seconds for a silicone sponge.
It uses WAYYYY less product. I use maybe a third of my concealer than normal since none of it absorbs into the silicone which is so nice! I always dread having to buy new product since it can get expensive (but it is worth it!) If you are a penny pincher like me when it comes to makeup, you’ll want to invest in one of these.
I love its simplicity, however, I do not think it blends as well as my beauty blender. Every time I use the silicone one, I always have to go over the top with my regular sponge.
There are good (and not so good) things about the silicone sponge, but I will probably always have one of each kind to alternate between. I love how the silicone sponge uses less product, but I like the even finish my beauty blender leaves on my face. If you have tried it, which do you prefer?
