Today I’m here to blabbering about Real Techniques Miracle complexion sponge. Except the name ‘miracle’ its just a makeup blending sponge or a tool for your makeup application.
I have used and tried quite a lot of non brand,drugstore or cheap blending sponges which were mainly the dupe of original beauty blender but I was satisfied with none. Main problem with those were their stiffness. They were too stiff and hard to work with, also because of the stiffness they were hard to clean properly no matter what I use. I have been always in the search of a good and reasonably priced blending sponge.
I was confused before buying Real Techniques Miracle Sponge, didn’t wanted to waste money anymore but badly needed a sponge. I prefer to use sponge or wadges in my under eye area to set concealer. Miracle sponge is already a raved product in market though i was hesitating to buy one. However, couple of weeks ago finally got my hand into this product.
The product costs $5-$6. Packaging is quite simple, I believe somehow there is a difference in printing in area based launch. My first impression was ok, the sponge looks cute in orange color, has a flat side unlike the other sponge. I was dyeing to use it to see the performance in work.
I dampen the sponge with water and it turned twice bigger in size like all other sponge but the different thing happened is it became so soft and smooth after soaking with water. This is the thing I was looking for in all other sponge. If you sponge is not soft enough then it doesn’t really help even application of foundation or to set it perfectly. I applied my foundation with the flat edge and it worked amazingly. With this sponge and its unique shape it is so easy to get into those narrow corners of face. I got totally impressed from the first use. Also works great as a powder application tool to set foundation.
About cleaning the sponge, trust me it was way easy to clean this one because of its softness. I’m able to squeeze out and clean every bit of makeup residue from this sponge.
Overall, very happy with the outcome of Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. A big thumbs up to Real Technique for such quality product in budget price. I’ll be stock up more soon.
I’ll say to everyone who is looking for a budget sponge, do not waste your money on other cheap blending sponge but get Real Techniques one.
