It took me a very long time to buy into the hype of the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. This and the similar (but much pricier) beauty blender are all over blogs and YouTube, but I never understood the attraction of applying make up with a sponge so I carried on with my fingers (on lazy days) and brushes (when I could be bothered). In the past few weeks however, I've really not been happy with my make up - I don't know if it's the weather or my skin, but base products just haven't been sitting right on my face.
In desperation and quite on a whim, I bought the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I really was not expecting much at all but now I'm hooked and haven't applied my base with anything else since buying it. It applies foundation flawlessly and also so quickly - the time I spend applying my make up has probably halved due to this product. I use the main body of the sponge to apply my foundation and the flat section to blend in my concealer. I've been using a face mist to dampen it as I find if you wet it with water it soaks up quite a lot of the product (meaning you have to apply more than usual) but that would be my only criticism of this product. It washes easily and also dries in time for you to use it again the next day. I just can't get over how flawless this makes my base look!
Have you tried this? What did you think?
