I don’t talk about Real Techniques often enough do I? I am addicted to their multi-task brush that I use for blush as well as their kabuki blush and bronzer brush, but I need to talk about one of the newer “brushes” in the form of the Miracle Complexion Sponge ($9.99) which is a 3-in-1 multi-functional sponge. It has rounded sides to the blend larger areas of the face, a precision tip to cover any imperfections and a flat edge to contour around the eyes and nose. Sounds like this sponge took the best qualities of all makeup sponges out there and made a MEGAAA SPONGE!
The flat surface should be completely flat. Mine just needed to de-puff from being in the packaging.
The sides of the sponge are rounded and you can see the precision tip at the bottom.
Final Verdict: What I will say is that I am a lot faster when it comes to foundation application. I found the flat edge to be quite helpful around my eyes and cheeks and combined with the rounded sides, I’ve pretty much set an Olympic record! What I did notice between this sponge and the famous “pink other” is that this sponge is more dense and isn’t quite as bouncy in feel. This was also evident when I washed the RT sponge and it took some extra time and squeezes to rinse out the foundation. For half the price of the “pink other”, I’d say go for this one. I tend to still use both types of sponges depending on my mood, but I do keep both at the ready depending on how much time I have.
Real Techniques can be found at Lawtons, London Drugs and Pharmaprix or the FarleyCo website.
