Sephora sometimes makes a tool that I absolutely becomes obsessed and fixated on. Currently the Sephora The Sculptor Makeup Sponge is that tool I’m crazed over. You NEED this!
Because it’s freaking brilliant. Far be it for me to get slightly obsessed over a mere makeup sponge but I can’t deny the Sephora Sculptor Makeup Sponge is kinda my best friend at the moment. We’ve been hanging for a week or so now and have been completely hitting it off.
I typically palm my BB Cream on or use fingers for other foundations and base products. Fingers work for me and I don’t really embrace brushes or sponges for foundation application. I also dislike sponges, sorry, they are kinda gross and difficult to wash.
That’s why it comes as a surprise to me I actually like this sponge. This is a slanted designed sponge that comes with its own stand (the stand has a suction cup back so you can slap it up somewhere on your mirror or tile in your wash room). Outside of the odd shape you probably think, well, “it’s just a sponge!” But wait! There’s more!
The odd design fits the contour and curve of my face easily but the joy here is the way the sponge holds foundation or BB Cream. This retains product on top of the sponge so it isn’t SUCKED into the sponge but kinda lays on top of it. It’s difficult to describe but the sponge doesn’t suck product in but merely holds it as you apply. It creates a beautiful airbrushed appearance on my skin and blends in product to a picture perfect finish. Even on flakier areas of my face it creates a smooth, soft appearance. Odd how a simple sponge creates such perfection but seriously, try it, I think you’ll be surprised how incredible it worked. I even tried it with concealer! I applied a bit of my concealer under my eyes using my brush and patted it into place using the sponge! The finish was absolute perfection.
You can also wet this and use it in powders for a super smooth appearance.
At $12 it isn’t exactly cheap but I must say there’s something special about the Sculptor Makeup Sponge!
