Recently I posted about the Real Techniques Nic’s Picks Brush Set and it was such a popular post! I’m so thankful for all the comments and bloglovin likes all you lovely people left me so thank you so much. Following the popularity of that post I thought I’d review the miracle complexion sponge which I purchased in the same order. As I said before, I purchased the brushes through the realtechniques.com website which worked out so much cheaper than other shops and online stores even including p&p.
Using a sponge to apply makeup was something quite new to me but after seeing how many people raved about the beauty blender I knew I had to try something similar. Although I can’t compare the two sponges I can say that this one is considerably cheaper and easy to get your hands on. The design of this sponge makes it easy to apply both concealer and foundation. One end is pointed which makes it perfect for under eyes and the flat and domed side are both good for all over application. The best way to use this sponge is by soaking it in water then squeezing the excess out and using it damp. It blends makeup seamlessly into my skin but the downside is that it takes forever to dab the foundation in. I have found that this works perfectly with contouring to blend cream concealers in perfectly without dragging your contour and highlight into each other. It’s a great little tool which I’d recommend to those of you who don’t mind spending a little bit more time blending on a morning or who want a flawlessly blended base.
Have you tried this miracle complexion sponge before? What are your thoughts on beauty blenders?
P.S I filmed my first youtube video this weekend! So keep your eyes peeled for it!
