3. Simply Nam’s microfiber sponge is the secret to flawless makeup
Have you ever wondered how some people achieve absolutely perfect makeup? Most of the time it’s not the makeup they use but the tools they use to apply it. Enter the Simply Nam Velvet Microfiber Makeup Sponge. Made from fine microfiber bristles, the sponge gives a smooth, even finish and allows for wet and dry application. It’s worth noting that the product is also vegan, eco-friendly, latex-free, and cruelty-free. The sponge is designed to ensure less product absorption for full coverage and an airbrushed finish.
