It looks like a beauty sponge.
It acts like a beauty sponge.
It works like a beauty sponge.
But it’s NOT A SPONGE!
So what is it? The best item that I’ve gotten to test in ages is the answer to that question. This adorable Not a Sponge! has been a part of my life for the last 6 weeks and I’ve used it daily.
In many ways “not a sponge!” works like the typical beauty sponge that you are used to but the similarities end there. This is a makeup applicator that doesn’t absorb one drop of your makeup. It will save you a fortune because you barely use any product yet you have the application of your dreams.
not a sponge!™ the world’s first slow rising makeup applicator is an easy to use tool for everyone. the 99.9% non-absorbent material cuts down on bacterial growth to help prevent breakouts on sensitive skin, minimal to no staining, easy to clean, reusable, no color fading, absorbs less makeup so you can save time and money!
With not a sponge! you don’t need to get anything wet. You use it as is. Put your foundation on with your fingers or the applicator and then use dabbing motions to get the coverage you want. I like to use the side of the tool to get a light coverage. If I don’t think it’s enough I can add more foundation and dab more. The smooth bottom helps to get a fuller coverage. Then there’s the sturdy tip that is so useful. It fits under my eyes perfectly so that foundation or concealer is blended well. It also helps with small places like the sides of your nose.
After use I wash it with a bar of antibacterial soap and water. It cleans instantly and dries quickly. The website suggests that you can use an oil based soap instead of the antibacterial soap.
Things you need to know:
You are going to love how easy this is to use and clean. As you can see in my comparison picture it’s perfectly clean after a quick wash unlike my other blending sponge that never comes perfectly clean.
Saving money on foundation is a good thing, you’ll be astonished at the small amount you need. Using vegan, cruelty-free items is a wonderful thing. Having a hyperallergenic tool that cuts down on bacteria is a great thing. All in all – not a sponge! is a fabulous thing. — Marcia
