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.
