For a very long time I used to think that makeup brushes and sponges were meant to be used by makeup artists only, while for ordinary people the best way to apply a foundation was to use their fingers. But once, after I tried out this sponge to apply my foundation, I can’t even imagine how could I get by without it.
The Wunderblend offers the usual shape of the sponge and even though there are a lot different sizes and shapes of sponges in the market, I still prefer the classic egg shape with a tapered tip. I prefer applying my foundation with the base of the sponge and use its tip for my eye area.
The Wunderblend sponge is thick and resilient though it isn’t rough at all. The material the product is made of is foam-like and fine-pored, which is why it doesn’t soak in so much of the product you apply, as many other sponges do. Here the foundation stays on the surface of the sponge, though I still can see that it “eats” a little bit of my foundation. By in my opinion, even the duo-fibre brushes “eat” more of the foundation than this sponge.
It feels as though the product polishes into my skin when I apply it with this Wunder2 Wunderblend sponge. The coverage looks even and the pores become less obvious. I’ve never had a makeup brush to give the same result on my skin as with this sponge. If I need to layer the coverage, I can apply the second coat of the foundation and the sponge won’t break the first layer, but on the contrary, it’ll let me layer the coverage very evenly.
The damp sponge looks bigger and it becomes softer. If I use the damp sponge to apply my foundation, I know that the coverage will look a smidgen sheer and lightweight. In this photo I tried to show you the way the products becomes bigger. Here, the photo below shows the dry product, while the photo below it shows the damp sponge. I always dry the sponge on the box it came with, as when it gets drier, it becomes smaller and falls into the box itself.
I wash my sponge with special brush cleansers or sometimes I can use a cleansing oil to wash it off from the foundation leftovers completely.
