I think this is a helpful tool if you have limited brushes and use a lot of eyeshadows. If I feel inspired to do a colorful or bold look that would require me to use my brushes to blend and pack in color, for it to not get muddy because there's pigment on the bristles, I use this to clean off the previous color and to apply a new color. I don't have a lot of brushes or I use particular brushes for a certain application and I don't have a spare, so in between different colors, I run it thru the rough sponge to get rid of the color. This also means, I don't need to clean my brushes too often because of lingering pigment. For big events that I need to do my makeup away from home, I make sure that this is in my kit. It helps me use only essential brushes for the look I'm going for. I know this is a very simple tool but it's a good investment. I've tried to make a DIY version, but I noticed that the rough sponge would get stained and eventually gets worn out. I think it's a worth it tool.
