Using weird things to blend makeup with has become the order of the day. Just a few days back, YouTuber Laila Tahri shared a video where she demonstrated using the condom in her beauty routine and said it helped her achieve a flawless blend. We thought we had seen everything and also sort of understood where she was coming from, but no. Looks like Vbloggers and YouTubers today have developed a thing for theatrics; and this time they are putting on quite a show with..wait for it—the humble and nutritious hard boiled egg (not kidding).
Yep, that’s right. Forget makeup sponges, silicone sponges, beauty blenders et al, there is a new makeup tool in place; the same one that you have it for breakfast everyday. Beauty bloggers Nadi (also known as PopLuxe) and Esther Gbudje (houseofsienna) both took boiled eggs and used them to blend in foundation, concealer, contour and even put on eyeshadow at one point.
It’s another thing that the egg crumbles at one point which doesn’t deter Nadi who pops a piece in his mouth (products on the egg be damned) and continues with a fresh egg. However, he seemed quite happy with the egg applicator when he exclaims, “Oh my gosh, this is actually working really, really well. This kind of feels like a really cold SiliSponge but it smells like sewage, like eggs, so that’s a turnoff. But it’s actually doing a pretty good job.”
Drawing inspiration from the same, Esther Gbudje (houseofsienna) decided to take it out for a twirl and approved of the results.
While, it might look pretty convincing, I am not really keen to get bits of egg on my face or smell like one as I am headed to work. Plus, it seems a sheer wastage of food (starving people who can do with an egg with a day). Condom seems like a better choice already!
