Recently I went ahead and splurged on a clear silicone make up brush set and applicator sponge. The idea behind it (at least for me) is that they would be easy to clean every day and I wouldn’t have to worry about picking up a makeup brush the next day only to find it wet . . . and possibly smelling funny. For less than a $15 investment, it seemed worth trying out. For a few years I’ve been using Q-tips for my eye make up because of the chance of dirty brushes giving me eye infections.
I was super excited to try them out. But, I have to admit that I found them a bit tricky at first. They don’t absorb the make up so it feels like you don’t get enough on them. It’s also a bit weird because they aren’t flexible like traditional brushes. After 3 or 4 days I had adjusted to that feeling and began to appreciate them.
- easy to clean
- quick drying
Definitely a thumbs up after the initial adjustment period. I don’t think I would go back to old fashioned ones ever again. I’d even buy this set again.
