I hope you are doing great! Is it really cold where you live? It is crazy cold here (for Georgia at least)… but no snow. If it’s gonna be this cold, I want snow! Anyways today I am reviewing the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, and also comparing it to the Beauty Blender. Stick around to see my thoughts.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
What it is.
“It’s a 3-in-1 multi-functional makeup sponge by Real Techniques. The rounded side blends larger areas of the face. The precision tip covers blemishes/imperfections and the flat edge contours around the eyes and the nose, leaving you with a complexion that’s smooth, enhanced and gorgeous!”
Price & Where to Buy.
How to Use.
Start out by running the RT sponge under water while squeezing it at the same time. This will allow the water to absorb into the sponge. This will cause the sponge to basically double in size.
Squeeze out any excess water… you don’t want your sponge to be too wet when you use it, or it won’t work properly.
I apply my foundation directly to the sponge, but you can apply it to the back of your hand, or go ahead and dot it onto your face. This is just what works for me.
I found using the flat side to cover my face worked the best, it covers a large area so it doesn’t take long to blend your foundation.
Apply your concealer and use the pointy side (that’s a technical term) to blend.
If you are into “baking” the sharp edge of the sponge is perfect to apply loose powder with. So this goes without saying that this sponge is very versatile.
Compared to the Beauty Blender.
So the RT sponge and the Beauty Blender are generally made to do the same thing, but which one is actually better…
- Cost: RT Sponge… the Beauty Blender is $20
- Accessibility: RT Sponge, you can find it at more places, so it’s easier to get your hands on it.
- Application: The Beauty Blender… although they are very close I think the Beauty Blender is slightly better.
- Functionality: RT Sponge... it is designed to do more.
Here is a post all about the Beauty Blender.
So as you can see the RT Sponge compared to the famous Beauty Blender is just as good if not better. If you already have the Beauty Blender you don’t really need another sponge, but if you don’t have it, and never wanted to spend $20 on a sponge I definitely think you should check this one out. It’s GREAT!
Which one do I reach for the most… the Beauty Blender! :)
Do you have the Real Techniques Sponge or the Beauty Blender?
