Any makeup-lover knows that Sephora is full of so many beauty items that you'll inevitably come across an oddity or two at some point — and that's exactly what happened when fans discovered some... strange... beauty sponges.

Beauty sponges are a makeup bag staple and come in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. Each one has a purpose, and everyone has their favorite. Sephora's new beauty sponges were supposed to be shaped like a seashell, but as you can see, people have other ideas in mind.


These sponges, part of the Ocean Crush Sponge Set, resemble many, uh, NSFW things, if you ask Twitter.

Honestly, it personally took me a minute to see what else it could be. I was thinking peach soft serve ice cream, but boy, was I wrong. Twitter took one look at these beauty sponges and RAN with it. 

Twitter saw everything from a penis to nipples.

Others asked if it had any other *features.*

Tbh I don't think changing the color would get people's minds out of the gutter. 

Not all comparisons were NSFW, though. One user thought the sponge simply looked like a gecko's tail.

*cue the awws*

Maybe the Water Bear is the next beauty icon? 

What do you see when you look at the sponges?
