Makeup Sponge Mission

I am currently obsessed with finding the perfect makeup sponge. I have purchased mine at Sally Beauty Supply for the past 10 years. Each time I go to buy one, they either have one or none left. I buy the large size of the Face Secrets Professional Foundation Round Sponge. They sell the small size in a bag (which I don't like) or the large size in an individual package for about $1.19 or so. I would be willing to pay about $5.00 for the large size because these sponges last so long and they work great!

I have tried the cheap triangles and they just don't work for me. I have also tried the red sponge type and it was horrible! The small sponges that come in makeup compacts don't work for everyday use - only in travel or work situations. I have also read that the best way to apply your foundation is with your fingers. I know some MAC experts prefer to use brushes to apply foundation. This sounds a little messy to me and very time consuming when you think of cleaning and maintaining those brushes.

Do you have a foundation applicator that works for you?? I am on a mission to find the perfect applicator and let everyone know.

I'm with the artists, I use only a brush! Once you've tried a good one, you'll never use a sponge again. My brush is by Estee Lauder, costs around $30 and has lasted me 3 years and still going strong. They do take a few tries to get the technique down since brushes take less foundation and do more spreading then soaking up. I don't like to use sponges since they breed bacteria faster then a brush and most of the make up on your face ends up in the sponge. Plus, brushes you can wash with your face soap and warm water.
