Real Techniques Miracle complexion sponge

Many of you will already know about the Real Techniques brush range by Samantha Chapman of Pixiwoo fame. I love Pixiwoo. Their Youtube channel is absolutely amazeballs. Like many beauty addicts, I have a good few of the Real Techniques brushes and really love them. So when I heard that they were bringing out their own version of the Beauty Blender I was more than a little bit excited. Hello flawless skin!

 

I have previously used a generic makeup sponge that I purchased on ebay and while I was happy enough with how it worked, it wasn’t always my go to tool while applying makeup. But the Real Techniques  Miracle complexion sponge is different. It is shaped differently then other sponges. There is 1 flat area, 1 curved area and a pointy bit at the top which helps you get into those hard to access areas under the eye and around the nose. The curved and the flat area are used to blend and stipple the make up to give a flawless finish.

The best way to use the sponge is used slightly damp. When water is applied, like all sponges it grows in size. However it can get a little bit smelly if you don’t wash it with hot water, washing up liquid and olive oil about once every 2 weeks ( I know, weird, but trust me on this one). Where this sponge really shines is contouring. We all want the Kim Kardashian contoured face and this sponge really helps achieve that look.

I love, love, love the Miracle complexion sponge and at €5.99 this is an absolute bargain and a must have for every makeup bag. It can be purchased in Boots or on  Cloud 10 beauty .
