I discovered Real Techniques when I was searching for top makeup sponges. I had only ever applied my liquid foundation using my fingers and that wasn’t going so well. While we all know the most popular bright pink makeup sponge out there, $20 for a sponge?! Oh my word, that could go towards actual makeup (or 20 soup dumplings – sorry, blogging on an empty stomach)! To those who have used both sponges, let me know in the comments which you preferred and if I really should try the most popular makeup sponge. But for now, I just had to give this top-rated, more affordable makeup sponge a try.
With a revolutionary foam technology, this Real Techniques sponge is ideal for liquid foundation. Use damp for a dewy glow or dry for full coverage, and replace every 1-3 months. This Miracle Complexion Sponge is also a 3-in-1 sponge – the flat edge contours around eyes and nose, the sides blend large areas of the face, and the tip covers imperfections.
Using the same amount of liquid foundation, the complexion of my face appeared more natural when using a damp Real Techniques sponge than with my fingers. After using my fingers, it looked and felt like I applied a mask on my face, while it felt as if I wasn’t even wearing makeup after using the sponge. In addition, the shape of the sponge also made it convenient and effortless to apply foundation around my eyes and nose.
The Real Techniques Base Miracle Complexion Sponge is $6-$8, depending on retailer. Other brand makeup sponges range from $12-$22.
The Real Techniques Base Miracle Complexion Sponge provided me with a more natural look and feel, compared with using my fingers to apply foundation. The shape of the sponge also made it effortless to apply foundation around my eyes and nose. At such an affordable price point, I recommend anyone who uses liquid foundation to give this a try!
