When we first heard about the SiliSponge, we thought what many ladies must have: is that a bra insert? Well, according to our friends at Cosmopolitan, a silicon bra insert does indeed work as a makeup sponge! Beauty hack managed. As Refinery 29 points out, since Molly Cosmetics’ “SiliSponge” is currently sold out, there’s never been a better time to try this beauty hack. And it apparently works just as well!

First, let’s explain how the Silisponge works.

As Molly’s Makeup explains on their Instagram post:

There are even helpful SiliSponge how-to videos on Instagram.

We’ll be honest: this little applicator almost sounds too good to be true. But apparently, it is not. Unfortunately, the SiliSponge is sold out until mid-December.

Fortunately, until then we can just use a regular old silicon bra insert for the same effect!

Glamour writer and tester Brooke Shunatona tried out the hack and wrote:

Well, we figure it’s now time to dig our bra inserts out of the drawer. We love when accessories have multiple uses! It feels a bit like magic. Mischief managed.
