I tend to apply my makeup with a brush as it allows for a more precise application. However I do like having a sponge on hand and this JUNO & Co Microfibre Velvet Sponge had a lot of good reviews online. I’d never been particularly impressed with any one sponge brand so I grabbed one of these to see what the hype was about.
This JUNO & Co Sponge is made with velvet-soft microfiber bristles and a slanted edge for controlled stippling. It’s supposed to provide buildable coverage and a more natural, airbrushed foundation finish.
JUNO & Co Velvet Sponge
You can use this sponge wet or dry. To use it wet, wet the sponge, squeeze out excess water then use a stippling motion to apply liquid foundations, concealers, and contouring. To use it dry dip the sponge into a powder product, tap off any excess and pat into skin. Perfect with powder bronzers, blush, and highlighters.
I use beauty sponges damp and apply my foundation and concealer first. Then I will often bake with loose powder using what dampness is left on the sponge. I like this method as it sets the powder into my foundation without it looking dry or cakey.
I found this Juno & Co sponge to be very nice to work with. It’s a firmer sponge than some others I’ve used but it doesn’t soak up a lot of product which is great. The velvet texture leaves a skin like finish for foundation and concealer and it also works well with dry powders.
Overall this is a nice beauty sponge. I like the natural finish it provides and it doesn’t soak up huge amounts of product like some sponges can.
