Today I’ll share with you guys my first The Crème Shop product review. Their stuff is supercute but I wish it was easily available in India. Anyway, let’s get started with the review of these makeup sponges.
Price: 3.75 $ (shipping and customs extra), the price varies
• Includes assorted colors and shapes for everyday and detailed makeup application
• Can be used wet or dry with liquid, cream, or powder makeup
My Experience with The Crème Shop Assorted Cosmetic Sponge Set:
These sponges come in a plastic packaging. The front of which is transparent and the back side is black with company details printed in white. The bag is of ziplock kind where you just press it and it locks. However, I’ve seen that after opening and closing it too many times, the mechanism isn’t working anymore, so you got to find a clean bag to fit these sponges in.
There are about 35 sponges in all. For the price I think it’s a steal. These are pretty versatile sponges and can be used for makeup or even nail art. What I like is that you get so many different shapes of sponges, some to be used for liquid ones, some for pressed powders, etc. The sponges are very light. They distribute the product really well giving a very smooth finish to the skin. You can see in the swatch picture that the sponge has distributed the product evenly and it doesn’t look artificial. My skin looks natural even though I’ve layered the foundation.
The sponge doesn’t absorb much product what so ever. I’ve heard people on YouTube complaining how their sponge absorbs most of the product leaving very little to work with. That’s not the case with this one. It distributes the product evenly and it is fairly an easy process compared to using a brush to apply foundation all over the face and then blending it out. That’s what I think anyway.
I’ve noticed that though this one takes time, it gives a very natural finish to the skin without looking cakey or artificial. I’ve tried to apply foundation and even powders with this and it works very well on my skin. Also since you get so many sponges, you don’t have to worry about cleaning them as often, just saying. They do clean pretty easily. I used mild shampoo to clean them and leave them overnight to dry.
