We are all looking for ways to achieve that flawless foundation look. I like to use a brush and buff the foundation into my skin. I sometimes use a Real Techniques Miracle Sponge when I want a lighter finish (read review here). The only thing that really bugs me with both of these techniques is that they tend to soak up a bit of the foundation.
I was recently sent a MakeupDrop silicone makeup applicator to try. It is unlike anything I have ever tried so I was interested to see how it worked.
- Completely eliminates wasted product
- Applies and blends foundation perfectly
- Can be used for foundation, blush, highlighter, concealer, moisturiser and primer
- Washes easily with soap and water
I applied as per demonstrated on the website by applying a bit of my foundation to the MakeupDrop and then worked it into my skin. It is a good shape as it has a flat rounded side to use on larger areas like my cheeks and a smaller pointy side to use around the nose and under the eyes.
I have mixed views about the MakeupDrop. I love that it uses less product. I applied the same amount as I usually do and still had lots left when my face was covered. The MakeupDrop is also super easy to clean, I just ran it under the hot tap with a bit of shampoo on. I have to spend a long time cleaning my Miracle sponge and it still never really seems 100% clean even after washing.
When I applied the foundation it seemed quite wet on my skin for some reason, although it dried absolutely fine and was streak free. Concealer also applied well.
The thing I didn’t like about the MakeupDrop though was the actual feel of the silicone in my hands. I found it a really odd texture and I felt uncomfortable when it was on my face. It just kind of goes through me when I feel it. This is purely a personal thing as I have read many amazing reviews about this product and I can see why as the application was good. I am going to keep trying it to see if I can get use to the feel.
You can purchase the MakeupDrop from here for £14.00.
