Silicone Sponge Review: Is It Worth It?


Is the silicone sponge worth the hype?

I recently got to try the latest fad on the makeup tool market – the sili sponge* – and couldn’t wait to share the results!

While I’ve always been a bit of a brush girl, and have never jumped on the Beauty Blender bandwagon, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the silicone sponge.

It can definitely take you from a sheer to full coverage which is a tick for me.

I do think you will want to powder to set if you are taking your base all the way to full coverage because the product may sit on the skin a little too heavily.

Less is more using this guy; I went in with way too much product (as you can see in the video!) but I’ve found starting with less creates a beautiful (buildable) base.

This silicone sponge from Beauty Pods is only $12.95 which I think is an absolute steal.
It feels sturdy and of good quality – nice and squishy to play with (not that I’ve spent 20 minutes doing that already…).

An extra bonus for me is that the silicone sponge is super easy to clean – which you’ll want to do between each use because your product will just sit on the outside and dry otherwise. But, this means less germs and less product waste as it isn’t absorbing a thing. Woohoo!

Check out my first impression and see it in action in the video below!

What do you think?

Would you try the silicone sponge?

Let me know in the comments below – I’d love to hear if you have already!

Lots of love,
