These retail for $9.90 on sale, when you can get them. I feel like they are always sold out right now. It also comes from Hong Kong so it took like a month to get here. I don't remember shipping being that much, I also don't remember exactly what it was, maybe $5.
I watched a bunch of review videos before I bought this and they ranged from thinking this was the bomb to thinking it was crap. I found it to be a little difficult to work with. There is definitely a learning curve.
Here's me with just my primer on, I used Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing primer. The foundation I'm going to be using is the Urban Decay All Nighter, I wear color 1.5. I'm going to be doing half my face with the silisponge and half with my beautyblender.
Here's half my face done. You can see it's a little heavy in place and it didn't blend in the corner of my eye very well. I contribute most of this to user error. I think I used too much product. You definitely use way less product with this. I ended up just taking my fingers and kind of wiping the extra off then going over it again with the silisponge and patting it out. I did exactly as it instructs on the Molly Cosmetics site. I put the foundation on my face, spread it around til everything was covered, then patted it out.
This is all that was left on the silisponge when I was done. It was kind of just a thin residue. I put a little hand soap on it and it washed right off.
Here's me with my full face of foundation. In photo you can't really tell. In person, I could pick out some subtle differences.
It is super hard to tell here but I used cream blush (I don't have cream contour currently) and used the silisponge to blend one side and the beautyblender to do the other. I really like how it blended out the blush a lot. You used a very, very little bit.
Over all I really liked the silisponge. It saves so much product. It is something you have to learn to work with. I didn't see that it was patchy or streaky the way some people found it. It's probably something I will reach for again.
Anyone else have one of these coming?
And for those of you who are curious, here's the final look.
