Hi beauties. I think every one of us women have a few beauty products that totally changed and improved our way of looking at make up. Today I have a small review of a sponge that totally changed my foundation routine.It is Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
Before we start, I wanted to mention that before I started using the sponge, I was using Real Techniques brushes to apply my foundation. I am especially loving the Buffing Brush to apply my foundation, but we are not going to focus on that right now. For a few days now I have been trying this Miracle Complexion Sponge and I am really amazed by this cute little egg-shaped object. I have been wanting to try a beauty blender of some sort and I was so excited when Real Techniques released this sponge.
The sponge is very, very soft. It feels really good on my face when I apply my foundation and you can get a flawless look, without having any brush strokes. Just perfect blending. Miracle Complexion Sponge has a few different edges: round, flat and cone. It it really easy to apply concealer under my eyes and on the sides of my nose.
How to use the Miracle Complexion Sponge:
1. Moisten the sponge with water. Then squeeze the excess water. The sponge should be damp, but not wet. I like to use cold water, because it feels good on my skin. Especially in the morning, when my skin is waking up.
2. Apply foundation onto your face, putting a few spots on your cheeks, forehead, chin, etc. Then take your damp sponge and blend, blend, blend. If you need more coverage simply pat the sponge to your face.
3. Use the cone edge to blend the concealer under your eyes and flat side to blend the foundation on you forehead and cheeks. You can make the rolling motion to blend the foundation even more perfectly.
4. To clean the sponge you can use a shampoo and wash it in warm water. I like to wash it with antibacterial soap. I found that soap cleans the sponge much better than the shampoo and get rids of all the bacteria. Then let it dry and it’s ready to use again!
Now, many of you are probably wondering how is Miracle Complexion Sponge comparable to the Beautyblender. I am afraid I can’t help you here, because I have never used the Beautyblender. All I know that the Real Techniques sponge is a great product and really made my life easier. My foundation is perfectly blended and my face looks more fresh. I am loving it!
I got my Miracle Complexion Sponge from Enchantra.com and it costs € 5,99. It is half the price of the Beautyblender. In my opinion, it is a great deal! You can order the Miracle Complexion Sponge on Enchantra website HERE.
