My love/hate relationship with Makeup Sponges

I'm going to admit something....All of my brushes are collecting dust right now. My obsession with makeup sponges are not dying anytime soon. The typical slope shape is not the norm anymore. You remember those $1.00 for a bag? I still see them at dollarama!
Now i've seen every shape- eggs, spheres and diamonds...

Let me tell you all why I have the perfect love/hate relationship with makeup sponges:
Love because...
Quick Clean
I use my sponges moist. So it doesn't matter if it's dry when I apply my makeup.
I actually use Philosophy 'Purity Made Simple' One-Step Facial Cleanser to clean it when i'm in a rush.

Latex free
Girls with allergies to certain natural bristles (a.k.a animal hair)- yes it's possible....
Here is a latex-free option.

Unique shapes
You need something to get between the side of your nose??
I know a sponge.

Dewy application
A damp sponge application can give u that summer dew glow in the driest of times.

I seen people do a whole face using the curves and angle of a sponge. This is totally different than anyone who uses 6-10 brushes to complete a look.


Now the "hate"...
Can rip
I murdered my Beauty Blender within the second week of owning it.
I didn't understand the be gentle which washing thing.... yikes.

Absorbs foundation
This sucks but it's a sponge...of course some foundation gets wasted.

It doesn't dry quickly (not a problem for me though) because I have so many sponges.

What about you?
Do you have a love/hate relationship with Makeup Sponges?
