This Indie Beauty Product Will Solve Your Dirty Makeup Sponge Problems

If you apply your foundation with a makeup sponge, you've probably had a moment of not knowing what to do with it afterward. Unlike bristle brushes, you can’t pop it in a fancy cup on your vanity. Plus, due to the egg shape of most sponges, it can’t stand up on its own, and tends to roll around in your makeup bag. That can pose a problem, since it'll then harbor bacteria — which you definitely don't want to slather on your face. Enter: Blenderelle. Blenderelle is the ideal holding case for your sponge, which makes it easy to store, protect, and travel with your tear-drop tool. Instead of rolling around in your cosmetics case, getting every other product dirty with product, this lets your sponge sit on a flower-shaped throne all day with a twist-to-lock cover. You can simply toss it in your bag on-the-go and never have to worry about it getting dirty again. Better yet, the case offers up to 50% ventilation so the sponge can dry properly without breeding additional bacteria. You can even choose from two case colors: pink or pearl. It’s cheap, it’s cute, and it’s solving all of our first world problems.

, $14, available at Blenderelle.
