If you're tired of losing half your bottle of foundation to your makeup sponge, you just might need this clear silicone applicator like the SiliSponge. This $9 tool (that's currently sold out but can be preordered) — discovered by Reddit users and created by indie beauty brand Molly Cosmetics — hails from Hong Kong and is here to save your makeup day. Sure, it resembles a silicone implant or chicken cutlet, but man, does it get the makeup job done.
Here's why it's being referred to as the new BeautyBlender:
- 1This see-through, patty-like tool has a non-porous silicone surface (made out of silicone and encapsulated in a super-flexible material called thermoplastic polyurethane) that won't soak in your foundation, highlighter, or cream blush (yay, more for you!).
- 2Because of its smooth texture, you don't have to use as much product, and it's easy AF to clean because all you do is rinse it off with soap and water, and you're done! You don't have to wait for it to dry, nor do you have to wait until the water runs clear, like you do when you're cleaning makeup brushes — you literally just wash and go.
- 3It lasts longer than a makeup sponge; just replace it when it starts to look weathered.
