Silicone Makeup Sponge – Korah Beauty

I have heard LOADS about the silicone sponges for a while now but never found the need to get one. I’ve been using my beautyblender for years & despite trying to pick up different brands to test out nothing comes close to my original sponge from beautyblender. To be honest what persuaded me to buy a silicone sponge was the fact that it’s a lot easier to clean and I don’t have to worry about trapped dirt.

So I’ve seen Korah Beauty advertised on my instagram and facebook quite a lot which is how I found out about them. Also the fact that it’s Australian was a plus because that means faster shipping for me. I got the Crystal Teardrop Miracle Blender. I like that it’s quite thick as opposed to other silicone sponges that are flat.

I also like that it is the perfect consistency as the sponge is not too firm.

I tested out the sponge using 3 types of foundation cream, clay and regular liquid foundation. (The foundations aren’t all my shade as my skin tone changes regularly but I just wanted to test out using various consistency of foundation)

Cream:

I was pleasantly surprised when I blended out the cream foundation. The sponge blended out the foundation so easily and flawlessly. It made my skin look soo smooth. The one thing I like about this over a beautyblender is that when I use my beautyblender on cream foundation it tends to take a lot of product away so I have to use more foundation while with this silicone sponge a lot went a long way.

Clay:

Just like the cream I was pleasantly surprised by this. Again it blended out so effortlessly and so smooth. Since clay foundation is quite thick a little goes a long way and I really think that is a huge plus.

Regular Liquid:

This one as you can see did not work out that well for me. I don’t know if it’s because I used too much foundation or if it’s because it’s a lot more watery than the other two foundations but it did not do a good job blending out at all. I’ve never had a problem blending this foundation with my beautyblender or a brush so I know it’s not the actual foundation.

I dabbed some of the foundation off to see if it would be a bit better with less product but it still didn’t do a good job blending it out. I’ll have to test it out with other liquid foundations to see if it just doesn’t blend watery foundations well or if it’s not a great match with this particular foundation.
(UPDATE: I used way too much product & swiped it rather than blotting it! It actually turns out looking the same as the other two foundations did!)

Hope you guys enjoyed this post!

  1. Great post! I’ve been wanting to try a silicone sponge for months now but was not sure it was worth it, but you made me want to try it out! I mostly have liquid formula foundation though so hopefully it’ll work 🤞🏻xx Gaby

    1. I’ve just had a go using a different liquid foundation & it works perfectly. I just had to use less product & blot it more, but it turned out just as lovely as the others! Definitely worth trying it out!! 🙂 xx
