I was using The Perfectionist Airbrush Sponge from Sephora, but when it came time to replace it, I decided to try out the Miracle Complexion Sponge from Real Techniques since the line is now FINALLY being carried at the Pharmacy Jean Coutu near my house. This sponge seems to be the one most recommended as a good dupe for the pricy Beauty Blender (which I have not tried as I don’t want to spend that much money on a disposable sponge).
Here’s what it says on the Real Techniques website:
This versatile beauty tool was designed with a revolutionary foam technology to evenly blend makeup for a smooth, enhanced finish. Use damp for a dewy glow or dry for a full coverage.
- rounded sides blend large areas of the face with a dabbing motion.
- precision tip covers blemishes and imperfections.
- flat edge for contouring around the eyes and nose.
- ideal for liquid foundation.
For best results, replace your makeup sponge every 1-3 months.
I love the shape of this sponge, especially for blending out concealer, especially under the eyes. It isn’t as soft and squishy as the one from Sephora, which makes it a lot easier to control application and blending.
When I use my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation (review here), I’ve been applying the foundation to my face with fingers and then I use the sponge to blend and smooth it out.
The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is a “springier” foam than that of the one from Sephora which I found to be a little too soft and squishy. I’m very happy with this purchase.
Which sponge do you use? Or do you use brushes for your concealer and foundation?
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
