The foam makeup sponges tend to suck up a lot of water-based paint. They're better for spreading creme or oil-based makeups. However, some people love them. Give it a try - they're cheap enough that if you hate them, you haven't invested a lot of money.

They are single use only. They cannot be properly washed for reuse. So they are NOT cheaper as you have to throw them out after each person.

If you want cheap and easy - buy one of those big peanut shaped car wash sponges in the soft foam and cut them up in smaller pieces. Use them then take home and wash to use again.

I use the white cosmetic sponges for makepup - foundations, oil based creams, etc. But they absord water WAY too fast to make them much use with water activated make-up like face paint as you can't spread and blend the product very well.

I tried them when I first started and they just don't work with regular face paint. They don't get even coverage.

I used them when I lst started (Palmer's too..hehe). I did get compliments on the work...but I MUCH prefer tack sponges...(The make-up ones are a workable substitute in a venue (like a hospital) that you HAVE to watch hygiene.

The makeup wedges work fine as throw away sponges for Starblends. I couldn't tell much difference at all in the coverage between the wedges and lollipop applicators. I keep some in my kit "just in case".
