When this arrived at my door, I was quite excited. I have seen so many sponges like these, but never used any. I used to use the cosmetic wedges for my medium to full coverage foundations to sheer them down a bit, but recently I had been using a light coverage foundation with brushes.

I tried this straight as it is, and I have to say I wasn't a fan. My makeup application was far from flawless, my foundation went on looking cakey, and everything clung to any dry patch I had. The makeup also went on fairly heavy, and I ended up using a lot more foundation than normal because the sponge seemed to soak it all up.

Next use I decided to try the trick that I used to use with cosmetic wedges. I put the sponge under some water until it was fully saturated, then rung it out. The damp sponge was more flexiable, and so much easier to use. I did another makeup application, and what a difference. My foundation went on smoothly, and it looked so natural. My foundation wasn't cakey at all. It did sheer down my foundation a bit, which made everything more natural looking, which I liked. If you are someone who likes a full to medium coverage, then I wouldn't recommend dampening your sponge. However if you have dry skin, and / or don't need much coverage, try dampening it!

Cleaning the sponge was alright. After the first use, the sponge was stained, and no matter how much I have tried to clean it, there still is some discoloration. Big deal? Not to me.

I think for some this is either going to be a hit or miss depending on how you like your foundation coverage, as well as your skin type. For me, I made this work with my skin, and found the best method that gives me just the right results.
