Don't go stuffing that tiny silicone square into your bra just yet—although it looks like an insert designed to create some major cleave, it's actually one of the coolest makeup sponges out there. Unlike your traditional blending tool, the Silisponge won't suck up all of your product, and is super-easy to clean thanks to the polyurethane and silicone used to create it. The flexible interior makes it easy to blend foundation or concealer over the contours of your face, while its coating is resistant to oil and grease. That being said, one sponge will pretty much last forever. Your BeautyBlender just might have some competition...

You can wash the Silisponge with any soap and lukewarm water, and it doesn't have to be replaced until the exterior starts showing signs of wear. One Silisponge retails for $10 on mollycosmetics.com, that is, if you can even get your hands on it. The tool is constantly selling out, though restocks happen pretty regularly, so stalk the Molly Cosmetics social feeds to stay updated. In the meantime, we'll be over here robbing Victoria's Secret of every gel bra insert they currently have in store. The Best Drugstore Foundations Under $15

This Wet n Wild foundation lives up to its name. It's a long-lasting semi-matte formula that leaves skin with a soft finish that'll probably remind you of your favorite Instagram filter.

COVERGIRL was one of the first brands to offer a wider foundation shade range than what's typically found at the drugstore. This medium-to-full-coverage formula keeps oil under control, doesn't smudge, and feels lightweight on skin. As for the shade tally, there's 40 options. Courtesy

For anyone that's new to wearing foundation, a power formula is the perfect gateway product because it is so easy to apply. The only problem? Powder foundations are notorious for looking chalky and cakey. Luckily, there's exceptions like this drugstore powder foundation from NYX.
