Hey my lovelies,
How are you doing? Do let me know in the comments below.
Today, I will be reviewing a product that has made my life super easy and the one I can’t do without, it’s nothing but my love Real Technique Miracle Complexion Sponge. So, without further ado let’s get straight into this review.
You can BUY it from amazon.in
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
It comes packaged in a hard plastic transparent box, just like the other RT brushes. It has a small plastic holder on which the sponge rests.
This sponge is supposed to be used damp. So, I usually soak the sponge under cold water, give it a good squeeze to get the excess water out, repeat the same process for 3 to 4 times. I squeeze about 50% water out, leaving the sponge damp and expanded in size.
After this, I take the foundation on the back of my hand, and I patted the sponge slightly in the foundation and applied on the face. You can use two application methods for this purpose. Either you can use the sweeping motion or the dab-dab motion, either one works. Sweeping motion gives sheer coverage while the dabbing motion gives medium coverage.
Also, As per Samantha Chapman’s (the one who has designed the sponge) video, the sponge can be used for:
1. Foundations – all types – liquid, cream or powder. This means your BB cream as well.
2. Cream blush.
How to Clean the sponge:
No separate cleanser is needed to clean this sponge. The sponge can be used using any shampoo or anti-bacterial soap.
My experience with real technique miracle complexion sponge:
I was super excited to try this RT sponge when a very dear friend of mine bought this for me. *Happy dance* So, I have been using this RT make up sponge for 4 months now, and I have different experience with different make up products.
The time when I used the RT miracle sponge with liquid foundation/BB cream, i dampen the sponge and pat on liquid foundation and let the sponge absorb the product. Then, I dab the sponge onto my face and neck. What I noticed is the flawless, airbrushed finish. I was highly impressed with the coverage and the finish it gives. It definitely felt like miracle work. Even finish and a bit luminosity is amazing.
The time when I used the RT miracle sponge with concealer, I was not really impressed this time :/ because of the bulbous size of the sponge after getting wet. Concealer is something to be applied on specific areas and not here and there. And with this bulbous sponge it is quite difficult to reach the hard-to-get areas. Also, due to the size and the round shape, you won’t be able to see where exactly the product is being applied. For example, If you want to blend the concealer you applied on the bridge of your nose, this sponge will definitely blend it and give a airbrushed finish BUT you will end up applying the concealer all over your nose, not just the bridge of your nose. LOL!
The time when I used the Miracle sponge with creme blush, trust me you guys, it worked amazingly, it blends like magic.
