Real Technique Miracle Complexion Sponge has been a staple in my makeup bag for a while now. I personally love using makeup sponge to apply my foundation and concealer because it gives that airbrush dewy look to my skin. Even though, I have yet to plunge into the Beauty Blender sponge of the world, even if I have been putting it in my basket and taking it out a few times. So, if you are like me and cannot justify the expensive price for the Beauty Blender just yet and looking to add a makeup sponge into your makeup bag, then read on...
Price: Real Technique Miracle Complexion Sponge is the mid-range makeup sponge at £5.99 each whilst the Beauty Blender is £11.88 on Amazon or only £7.75 each if you buy two. So technically when looking at it that way, the Real Technique sponge is not as affordable as I originally thought.
Shape: Real Technique Miracle Complexion Sponge has pointy end perfect for getting the hard to reach places like under eyes area and around the nose. As well as a flat surface for getting the larger areas. Personally, I barely ever use the flat surface because I prefer to keep only one side of the sponge dirty. It only comes in one colour, orange, which makes it stands out from the rest of the white and pink makeup sponges. I also really like how the sponge feels quite dense and squidgy.
Use: Even though, you can use the Real Technique Miracle Complexion Sponge wet and dry but I think it works better when it is slightly damp. I normally squeeze a little bit of foundation onto the back of my hand and then dab the foundation with the sponge before applying onto my face with a bouncy and patting motion to work the foundation into my skin.
Problems: Although, it is fairly affordable at £5.99 but when comparing it other makeup sponge. It is not all that cheap. It also collects a lot product onto the sponge, which means you need to use double the foundation than you need to.
Would I repurchase or recommend this?: Well, honestly it is not too bad of a sponge. It works perfectly fine and it does give a lovely dewy and even finish. I do enjoy using it but I probably won't repurchase because I really want to give the Beauty Blender a go. I would recommend it for people that are like me and still in the between stage of cheap £0.99 makeup sponge and the hefty price of the Beauty Blender.
