I'd say it's a fair assessment that for every drop of makeup you buy, one-third of it gets lost or wasted to the sponges or brushes that you use to apply it with. Now, set to be the best thing since the Beauty Blender, the Silisponge hopes to change all of that.  

Created by indie beauty brand Molly Cosmetics in Hong Kong, this really affordable tool (which is currently sold out but word on the street says you can pre-order them) recently rose to popularity on the content sharing site, Reddit. We normally go there to find spit-out-your-tea funny memes; we never expected to find such useful beauty advice on it. 

What's so good about it is that even though it looks like the kind of thing you'd insert into your bra, its silicone surface means it cannot absorb any of your foundation. It won't gather anywhere near as much bacteria because it's not porous, therefore making it easier to clean, it lasts way longer than any sponge and, if that wasn't enough, its super smooth surface makes it very easy to apply your foundation and yes, you won't even need as much.  

HURRAH for foundation lovers everywhere.

  You can also use it to get the picture-perfect blend on your cream blusher... 

 

 

Another benefit of #silisponge is it works well with cushion foundation. No more wastage! #mollycosmetics
