What’s the difference between a silicone and a traditional makeup sponge?
Let's see what people say as below:
In the latter half of 2016, the beauty industry nearly lost their minds when Molly Cosmetics, based in Hong Kong, unveiled their latest invention called the Silisponge. Priced at a mere $9.90 online, the cheap thrill was a hot topic discuss among beauty vloggers, editors, and makeup artists alike. In fact, since launch it’s been restocked numerous times. But, the question remains—does it really work?
Like the rest of us, Director of Makeup Artistry at GLAMSQUAD, Kelli J. Bartlett discovered the new “tool” on Instagram. “I am a total beauty junkie and love checking out social media for the newest [things]. I saw it being used in a video and had to try it,” she shares. “Silicone products don’t absorb, so the Silisponge can help apply product you don’t want 100% transfer of, like glitter! It also helps that you can see where the product is going to land, so you can really target areas.”
Unlike the popular (and pretty much iconic) beautyblender, the non-absorbent silicone-based pad was designed to use less overall product than other pro tools out there. “The Silisponge came about because our founder (a makeup artist) was experimenting with different products and had the idea to create a product that is environmentally friendly and can be used for a long time,” shares the company’s business manager, Sya Yahya.
