Normally a sponge is just a sponge, nothing too exciting. But Coloured Raine for sure thought ‘why not add some pops of color and a cool design to a sponge?’ and now we have 2 colorful Coloured Raine Candy Cane Raine Sponges! To make sure we’re all able to clean our sponges, they’ve made sponge cleansers as well. Perfect! Time to test the sponges and sponge cleaners.

The Coloured Raine Candy Cane Sponges and Sponge Cleaners arrived in this cute little box with a bow around it. Such a cute little gift to get in the mail! Thank you so much, Coloured Raine, for gifting me these products.
This is a limited edition set for the Holidays, however, Coloured Raine also has permanent sponges in their collection. If you missed out on this cute set, I would recommend checking out their website here for the other sponges.
If you never heard about Coloured Raine, here is some background information:
Loraine R. Dowdy, is a Brooklyn born, Caribbean descent woman who has founded Coloured Raine in 2013, leaving a high-powered job in the financial industry to pursue her dream. Loraine longed for a cosmetic line that encouraged self-expression and diversity, and included shades for people of color. Her aim was to create a stand-out cosmetics line that broke all beauty barriers.
The mission behind the brand has always been to spread awareness of diversity through beauty and to embrace all aspects of color through unity. Loraine has always had a deep and intense love for color, and strongly believes that makeup is a toy for everyone to enjoy – which can be used to express oneself. A belief in all things beauty, with no stipulations on color, age, and gender is what sets Coloured Raine apart.
Starting a business as a woman of color has been a challenge, but Loraine has pursued her passion relentlessly, and created a collection long-lasting liquid lipsticks, highly pigmented eyeshadows and more in an array of unparalleled hues.
Her advice to those following in her footsteps is keep on rising to the top and don’t let anyone tell you, you can’t reach your goals, or that you’re wasting your time. Stay fierce, and keep on serving that black girl magic!
Coloured Raine is headquartered in Southern California and can be found on Colouredraine.com as well as Target stores across the United States.
Beauty brands have historically made cosmetics that only cater to a narrow segment of the population – those with pale skin tones. This practice has left more than half the country out in the cold. Having said that, you don’t have to be a woman of color to shop our shades. We offer a range of bold, bright colors to suit every skin tone, gender, and personality. Our colors pop on black skin just as much as they do on the lightest skin tone. From pale beauties to melanin goddesses, everyone can tap into their fierce with Coloured Raine.
One of the reasons why I love to support Coloured Raine is because of its mission. I’m a woman with a pale skin tone and I never had to go through the struggle of not finding the right shades. Something woman of color has to go through when purchasing makeup. I still think not enough brands are inclusive enough, which is truly sad, but I’m happy to see a brand like Coloured Raine stepping up to make sure all of us can enjoy makeup. A lot of brands should follow this example!
Another reason why I love Coloured Raine is that all their products are cruelty-free and the majority of products are vegan as well.
Coloured Raine Candy Cane Sponges Review
First of all, I like how soft the sponges feel. I personally don’t like using harder sponges, such as the Morphe sponge. I find it harder to blend compared to a soft sponge. This is a personal preference though.
The Coloured Raine Candy Cane Raine Sponges are soft dry but get even softer when wet. Just like a regular sponge, it expands when wet. I really appreciate the softness of the sponge since it literally blends like a dream. I have to say that the sponge does soak up a little bit more product than a normal beautyblender.
The flat side of the sponge is my favorite side to buff in my concealer, the normal round side is my favorite for a foundation. Both sides work super easy and blend everything into the skin perfectly. I would really recommend the sponges!
I never thought I would say this, but I think I even like these sponges more than the cult-favorite beautyblender sponges.
Coloured Raine Sponge Cleansers
The sponge cleaners work very well. They have a nice smell but nothing too much, which I like. I just wet my sponge, rub it over the sponge cleanser and squeeze the products out. I’ve made a little video with my phone to show you how I clean them and to prove to you the cleansers work great. Here you go:
As I said before, the Coloured Raine Candy Cane Raine Sponges and Cleansers set is limited edition and retails for $15. I think that’s a steal! Shop them here while you can. The products are also:
