Why did you buy this product?
I bought it because I heard some good reviews about it, I specifically heard “UglyFaceOfBeauty” talking about it in one of her videos and saying how much she loved it. I have been using the same makeup brush for so long and thought I would try a sponge for a change.
How much was it?
It cost around £4 from Boots.
What was the sponge quality and texture like?
The sponge feels amazing on your skin. It is so soft yet firm enough to apply foundation evenly to your face. It is a real treat to use on the skin. I don’t think it would rip or tear easily.
How well does it apply foundation?
Okay, I have to admit this sponge just doesn’t agree with my face. I use Mac Studio Fix foundation and it comes off so easily when I use this sponge! I realize that I might have to build my foundation more with a sponge, but even after I do this it still seems to come off my face so quickly. I would come home from college with a white chin and forehead, even after applying powders on top and primer underneath. It does make applying foundation quick and easy! It is so soft to the face and buffs in very well. There is an angled corner specifically for getting in areas around your eyes and nose which is really handy. It does apply foundation thinly, if you want to hide blemishes or freckles, you need to go over them areas a few times.
Do you think it is worth the money?
For £4 you can’t go wrong. I did expect a better product from this brand as it is very popular, but maybe sponges just aren’t for me.
Would you buy it again?
No. I won’t be buying this product again as it will probably last me a very long time anyway! It is always good to have a sponge handy though.
What is your overall opinion?
I think it is a good quality ‘build’ of a product. It is a good size, texture, and, you’ve got to love the bright orange colour! It’s very soft on the skin which is important, especially for people with sensitive skin. I am disappointed with how this sponge makes MY foundation look. For me, it leaves my face a bit patchy from the start, and it comes off my face very quickly, which is disappointing. I have went back to using my Mac foundation brush and I couldn’t believe the difference. My foundation has been staying on all day, doesn’t look as oily and doesn’t wear off anywhere NEAR as quickly. I think it MIGHT be suitable for someone with a tanned complexion who doesn’t need an awful lot of face coverage. I would give this product a 5/10.
