: Silicone makeup sponge?

I was wondering if any oil painters have tried using a silicone makeup sponge to smudge/blend your oil crayons rather than killing your fingers and causing blisters. Does it work? If so, does it work better or about the same?

I used silicon sponges before for creating some smooth color transitions. Not exactly a makeup sponge but I think as long as it takes up the paint it should work just fine :)
