I KNOW!! I’m so late to the silicone sponge party that I might as well not have turned up at all. If you haven’t yet tried this, or any of its variants (condoms filled with cornflour or a boiled egg.. I’m not even joking) then it’s main claim, to save product, is certainly true. There is not a scrap of waste with this. I use oval brushes (cheap or fancy, don’t care) for foundation and I’m a complete convert to that because of the easy buffing and smooth finish, but the silicone method is not awful.
Oval brushes and any kind of sponge are thirsty for foundation – I know that I need to wash my ovals a lot and watch my beloved base disappear down the sink which is a bit painful, and you certainly won’t get that with the Silicone Sponge (which is also super easy to clean, unlike brushes). However, it’s still not for me – I used a Chanel foundation and using the silicone it took more effort to get a finish I was happy with and didn’t feel nearly as controlled. I see its use and I now realise why everyone loves them, so it’s purely down to personal preference.
It’s £7.99, and if budget allows, I’d definitely give it a try if you haven’t already just to experience the very stark difference in methods. You might love it! Or you could fill a condom with cornflour…. #justsayin. It’s HERE.
