During the years I have been obsessed with all things beauty, I have always heard people rave about the Beauty Blender - a sponge that makes the application of makeup super easy.
Although I had always been quite dubious, I finally caved and decided to pick up the Real Techniques version - The Miracle Complexion Sponge.
As I am sure you all know I am a huge fan of all of the Real Techniques brushes I own. The quality is amazing and at such an affordable price, I knew the Miracle Complexion Sponge would be just as good. However, since using this sponge for about a week, I didn't realise just how good it would be.
The Miracle Complexion Sponge is quite uniquely shaped, with a pointy end that is amazing at applying your foundation and concealer in particular, a flat side that is great for covering large areas and the rounded sides that can also be used for even more blending.
I love running this under water so it doubles in size, then squeezing out any excess water and towel-drying it so it is slightly damp. This makes applying makeup so effortless and easy, and the results are amazing.
For foundation this gives very flawless results. I find it makes my foundation look very natural as it is patting it into the skin, whilst also creating an almost flawless and smooth canvas. It also makes applying foundation quick work as it covers such a large area.
For concealer, the pointy side of this sponge is awesome as it can really get into those 'hard-to-reach' areas. Again it leaves your concealer looking very natural yet flawless.
I have also tried it with powder, and it still gives amazing results. I can also imagine it being very good at applying any cream products like cream blushers.
When it comes to washing this sponge it is not the easiest, but every makeup sponge is difficult to clean because of the material it's made out of. However, I still like to swirl it in some Johnson's Baby Shampoo which I find helps to clean out some of the makeup.
Overall I am super impressed with this Miracle Complexion Sponge. It is so versatile and leaves natural yet flawless results. It has become an absolute must in my makeup routine, and I don't know how I have been living so long without it!
Let me know if you have tried the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge and what you think of it!
