I saw the cutest thing on my Facebook feed that cost almost nothing so I had to go for it. Blending sponge holders with little bird feet that help the sponges dry faster. Aren’t these adorable?
I had never heard of Rosegal, an inexpensive online retailer from China. For about $10 delivered, I bought:
- two of the cute blending sponge holders: $5.13
- a silicone makeup applicator: $0.94
- two makeup brush cleaner pads in cute heart shapes: $3.61.
It took about two weeks for me to receive my order, but can you believe it, shipping was free!
At these rock bottom prices, I was afraid that the quality would be terrible. Surprisingly, the quality is great. I don’t think I would buy makeup from them, but for little accessories like this, it’s just fine.
The sponge holders look cute on my bathroom vanity. One is rose gold, and the other is metallic raspberry pink. Importantly, the sponges dry much faster with air circulating around them so there’s less chance of bacteria buildup.
The brush cleaner pads are adorable, and they really make cleaning my brushes – especially foundation and concealer brushes – much faster and more efficient. They have a little pouch where you can place your hand to hold the cleaning pad to make it easier to use and keep your hand clean.
The silicone makeup sponge is another story. I’m not sure I get this. The primary benefit is supposed to be that you use less foundation because the foundation doesn’t get sucked up into a sponge or brush; instead it sits atop the silicone. But for me, it is more difficult to apply my foundation. Rather than giving me the airbrushed look that a blending sponge does, the silicone sponge seems to smear the foundation around. Maybe I’m missing something or doing it wrong. Have you tried a silicone sponge? Any tips for me? I’m glad it only cost a dollar.
So that’s it. If you’re on a low buy like I’ve been but you feel the need to buy something, Rosegal.com is a place to look for inexpensive accessories. I think the sponge holders and the heart-shaped brush cleaning pads make cute little gifts or self-treats. They have lots of cute, super affordable stuff that’s especially perfect for girls, tweens and teens like trendy sunnies and adorable hair accessories. For adults, they have some fun scarves and hats that if you lost them, you wouldn’t feel bad. Take a look!
