Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge!

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog. Today I wanted to do a little review on the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I brought it a couple of months ago and wanted to get some use out of it before I told you about it. I am a huge fan of the Real Techniques brand as im sure many of you are, the prices are really good and the quality of the brushes is amazing. When it comes to sponges I normally always use my Beauty Blender sponge however its looking a bit tatty so I thought I would give this one a try.

So firstly the one thing that drew me to this particular was other then the brand was the price, it was £5.99 which I thought was really good as you can use this over and over again as long as you wash it. I found with most of the other sponges were multi pack ones which I don't like as they are a funny shape and you can only get one good use out of them.

As you can see the sponge is also shaped in a way which makes it very versatile when it comes to applying foundation. The rounded edges are for large areas of the face creating an even and blended base. The pointy edge is for more precision such as concealing blemishes or any other areas needing more coverage or concealing. The flat edge area is easy to work with around the eyes and nose and also for highlighting and contouring.  This may seem a bit complicated however it is perfect for beginners as I find the sponge does most of the work for you, its hard to go wrong with really.

You can use this sponge wet or dry, and I find it works the best when sprayed with water so it is only slightly damp. And to get the best finish use in dabbing motions and press the product into the skin, this will create a flawless base! This sponge works with any cream or liquid product it applies them really nicely, I even use it to apply my finishing powder to set my makeup. Its really easy and comfy to work with. As I have sensitive skin I find sponges never irritate my skin like some brushes can as you are barely touching the skin.

Overall I think this a brilliant product which a lot of thought has gone into so you get the most out of it. The shape is very clever and packaging explains this really well. Its great to have in your makeup bag and gives you a beautiful flawless base.
