By the time I’d pumped some foundation onto the back of my hand, the makeup sponge had started to thaw and wasn’t so rock hard. Unlike a Beauty Blender, Huda’s sponge has a smooth edge, which makes blending foundation really easy, so I got to work quickly while it was still a little icy. My initial thoughts? This feels incredible. Much like a jade roller or gua sha tool, gently tapping the sponge over my skin was soothing and relaxing in a way I didn’t expect, and I was surprised by how immaculately it blended the product. As the sponge defrosted, the water melted into my foundation and made my skin gleam. I’ll take the extra hydration!
