Stonegirl Silicone Makeup Sponge Review & Giveaway

Did somebody say... giveaway??

Hey everyone! I'm really excited about today's post because I've been dying to do a giveaway for you guys and now I am finally able to do so! Stonegirl Beauty was kind enough to send me two sets of their new premium silicone makeup sponges, one for me to try out and one to give away to one of you! Now I would never send you guys something that I do not approve of, or would not personally use myself. I've tested these silicone sponges several times and can say that I am really impressed with the quality of the Stonegirl Beauty products. Please note that although these products were sent to me, all opinions are 100% my own. That being said, onto the review we go!

First things first, I'm really big on packaging. I like when companies show effort through their packaging because let's be real, it makes a much greater impression that receiving something in a plain cardboard box. The Stonegirl Beauty team had my sponges shipped out in a cute metallic pink bubble mailer that I felt really captured the overall aesthetic of the brand itself.

I have always used beauty blenders in the past, so using these silicone sponges was a completely new experience for me. What I love about these sponges is the fact that they are super easy to use. I'll be honest with you, I had no idea what I was even doing, yet my foundation came out looking seamless. Brushes can sometimes leave streaks on your face if not blended correctly, but I did not have that problem with these sponges. Another big plus for me is that they are really easy to clean and don't require too much maintenance. Just run the sponge under some water, maybe pass some makeup remover over it if needed, let it dry and you're good to go. Unlike a beauty blender or other makeup tools, these silicone sponges don't really collect or hide any dirt, so you're less likely to breakout from using them.
