Hey everyone, today I have a review of Real Techniques' Miracle Complexion Sponge and I hope you enjoy reading it. Any recommendations or thoughts you have for me on what to try out are really appreciated.
The packaging is cute and a little different to the usual, box-shape standard that you tend to usually get with other make-up applicators. It is very detailed about what is inside and what it can do for your skin which I think is an added bonus!
I love Real Techniques' brushes which I've also reviewed here. In the past, I've used my fingers before then converting to my holy grail which is the buffing brush that comes with the Core Collection Set. So I was a little wary and possible biased when I came to use the Miracle Complexion Sponge. I have also never tried the Beauty Blender either which everyone raves about so I didn't have anything to compare it to.
The sponge is designed to be used, either damp or dry, to apply, blend and buff in your base make-up. The dome part of it is for applying make-up all over your face and the flatter side is for larger areas with a pointed tip to blend in the make-up into all the nooks and crannies. The shape of the sponge is pretty useful and a great concept but I felt like you couldn't use as much of the make-up product as you could with your fingers or a brush.
As you can see from the picture, you can see how much the sponge soaks up more of the product rather than allowing it to spread around your face. I felt like I get more of a natural, better finish with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush rather than using this. It was rather time-consuming and I felt like I had to use more layers than usual to cover up my blemishes. It was also hard to wash out as well and also very time-consuming.
The only good thing it was actually useful for concealer. Instead of using the same brush or my finger, I can use it to press in my concealer and blend in any product into any tight spots that my buffing brush can't get into. So I wouldn't necessarily recommend buying this because I've heard more bad reviews about it more than good ones, mine included. But if you can afford spending a fiver or so to try this out than it may work out better for you than for me.
You can it from Amazon for £4.48
Or from Boots for £5.99
