Hey Everyone!

Forever 21 Makeup Sponge

Makeup Sponge for Even Makeup Finish

See it through my eyes


This comes in a transparent plastic case. The sponge is held in a plastic tray inside the box. All the details of price and use are mentioned on the outer box. The sponge is quite handy and fits in the palm easily. The feel is soft but rubber like when dry. On wetting it becomes plump and soft and almost doubles its size. The shape is unique and one of its kind. It looks like egg shaped. Its pointed at the tip for the concealer and countering.  Curved inwards in the waist and bulged out towards the end. The middle part makes the hold convenient while the base is bulged out which gives enough room to work with the face.


When the sponge is dry it gives amazing finish. But yes you guessed it right, it drinks the product like a thirsty lady on karwa chauth Blum 3 very bad joke. When used wet and water squeezed out it gives a fairly good finish too. Eats lesser product, but sheer finish. So when I want sheer finish I use it wet, when I want good coverage I use it dry.

One thing I have noticed after using a sponge, I dont feel like using the makeup brushes anymore. They feel so tiring and difficult to work with when compared to a sponge. It provides so much control and coverage. Plus it provides even looking complexion. I have also started using the Real Techniques Complexion Sponge ( Review HERE), will review that soon too Wink

How I use it

I dot the foundation/bb cream all over the face. Take the sponge and buff around on the entire facd and neck. I either pat it/ dab it and then work my way through the face or the very well known stippling motion to give an even coverage. I use it both wet and dry depending on my mood and time. When I
have loads of time I do it dry. When I am in hurry I wet it, squeeze the excess and work my way through it.

I prefer washing the sponge with mild shampoo after every use, I hate to see it stained like it becomes after every use.
