Initially found by blogger Nadi, hard-boiled eggs make for shockingly great cosmetics wipes. In a YouTube instructional exercise posted recently, Nadi utilized an egg — shell peeled off to mix his establishment, apply eyeshadow, and form his face. Out of the blue, the delightful hack really worked — and when it began to disintegrate part of the way through the instructional exercise, furnished him with a merited nibble.

“Oh my gosh, this is actually working really, really well,” he said. “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.”

 

“I really like how cold this is,” he added. “It’s like super refreshing, too!”

“The egg did give me a flawless look I was going for, and it doesn’t absorb any product at all,” Gbudje told Allure. “After each application, I cleaned the egg with wipes before applying another product on my face, so I would say it worked for me.”
