Review: Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

My Stila Double Ended Blending Sponge was looking pretty dirty so I decided to try out a cheaper alternative. I have heard many great things about this beauty blender from Real Techniques. I have many of their brushes, and love every single one of them so I knew this was going to be another hit for me!

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is said to be “a 3-in-1 multi-functional sponge. Rounded sides blend large areas of the face with a repeated dabbing or stippling motion. Precision 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 finish, leaving you looking gorgeous.”

The design of this sponge is very different from your typical beauty blender. This sponge has both a pointed end and a flat edge, which I think is very beneficial. After wetting the sponge, I like using the rounded sides to blend out my foundation, the flat edge to set the concealer in between my eyes and around my mouth, and the pointed tip to blend in the concealer around my nose. Most people tend to use the pointed tip to blend out their undereye concealer but because I have such extreme dark circles, I find that using a sponge tends to soak up a lot of the product in that area.

I absolute love this versatile makeup sponge! I can only compare this to the Stila Double Ended Blending Sponge because I never wanted to fork out $20 for the original beauty blender. The sponge from Stila is softer than this Miracle Complexion Sponge but they both get the job done fantastically. However, this does tend to stain quicker than the Stila sponge, but as long as you clean it after every 1 to 3 uses (as recommended), you shouldn’t have to worry about breaking out. I think I may have found my holy grail makeup sponge! This is easy to use, blends out my foundation and concealer like a dream, and is extremely affordable. I highly recommend trying this out!
