Hi loves! Have you seen the recent craze over the Silisponge? New tools to apply foundation have been all over the internet lately, and it can be difficult to decide what’s best! Of course, there’s the traditional brush, the Beauty Blender, which seems to have taken over the beauty world, and now there’s the silicone applicator, the Silisponge. So I decided to put these three tools to the test, to determine once and for all the best way to apply foundation! You can check out my video discussing each tool embedded in the post below or on my YouTube channel!
The Beauty Blender
Beauty Blenders have become a really popular tool since they’re so easy to use and give you sheer, even coverage. I really love how beautifully it blends your makeup, but it definitely eats up a lot of product. I’d recommend saving the Beauty Blender for special occasions if you’re trying to conserve your foundation and makeup!
For everyday, I think a brush is your best bet! I use a fluffy brush rather than a flat foundation brush because I think it blends better. Unlike the BeautyBlender, it doesn’t waste a ton of makeup and gives you a smooth, medium coverage that is perfect for your day to day makeup routine!
If you’re really trying to save product, the Silisponge by MollyCosmetics is your best bet! Since it’s just a piece of silicone, it doesn’t absorb any makeup and is super easy to clean. But, to be honest, I didn’t really love using it since you can’t use it for concealer, it didn’t blend well, and I felt like the makeup was just sitting on top of my skin. To fix this, you could go over your foundation again with a sponge or a brush to blend a bit more. (P.S. The sponge linked below is a dupe for the Silisponge that I found on Amazon!)
So in conclusion, I think the winner is the foundation brush! It’s easy to use and doesn’t waste expensive foundation while giving you a smooth, flawless finish. I do like using a BeautyBlender and wouldn’t count it out, but it does waste a lot of makeup. The Silisponge is definitely my last choice, even though it wastes no makeup at all and is easy to clean, the application just wasn’t as nice!
