Review | Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

When it comes to flawless makeup, one very important thing to know is : Blending is Key!!! It's one thing to apply makeup, and it's another thing to blend it well. . Un-blended foundation and concealer have a way of making your face look cakey.




Before now, I have been using a dupe of the original beauty blender, and I discovered I wasn't getting the best results. The truth is, I can't imagine spending #4,000 or more on the original beauty blender! Helllooooooo...  that much for a sponge??? * rolling my eyes*

Anyway, I decided to try out the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, ( such a mouth full) and in this post I would give my honest review.

Let's go....

What Real Techniques says: 

Optimize your beauty routine with this 3-in-1 multi-functional sponge.

  • Rounded side blend large areas of the face with a repeated dabbing or stippling motion.
  • Presicion tip covers blemishes and imperfections.
  • Flat edge for the contours around the eyes and nose. 
Its versatile design evenly blends makeup for a smooth, enhanced finished. For best results, replace the miracle sponge every 1-3 months.

What I think: 

Ok , this is truly a miracle sponge. I love how versatile it is and because of its various sides, it is able to achieve all its functions very well. I use the round side to blend my under eye concealer and it doesn't leave any streaks.  Sometimes, I even use the same round side to set my under eye with loose powder. I use the precision tip to apply concealer on spots.  Another thing I love about the miracle sponge is that it feels very soft and springy unlike those dupes of beauty blender which are so hard and rocky.  I tried using this to apply foundation , but I discovered it soaked up the product. Ironically, it is excellent with concealer for covering up one or two spots that show up on my face.

How I use it:

I wet the sponge with water, I squeeze out the water, then I go ahead and blend.  This gives a soft, dewy and natural finish. You may experience a little problem if you don't squeeze out all the water, your concealer/foundation may be wet and slippery and would slide off after an hour or so. 

One thing I don't like about this sponge or any other sponge, is the fact that it can get dirty and ewwwwy really fast. I wash my miracle sponge after 3 uses which is good enough for me. I am not worried about it ripping off from constant use ( which hasn't happened yet and I have used it for over 2 months) as I can always buy a new one and it won't hurt my wallet. 

Overall: 

I really love the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, as it does a great job and makes blending easy for me to do. Would I recommend? Absolutely YES, it's a very good buy.  I just got a new one for my work kit, and I am totally happy about that.
