Miracle Complexion Sponge

 
I have wanted to pick up this makeup sponge for a while now. Somehow I would always pass it in Ulta and forget to throw it in my basket. I finally got one a few weeks ago and couldn’t wait to rip it open and test it out! I had heard a lot of great things about this sponge being a dupe for the beauty blender. I never purchased the beauty blender… I could never justify spending so much on a makeup sponge. I know it’s supposed to be the most amazing tool ever but I figured I would be fine without one. Then Real Techniques came out with this miracle complexion sponge and at a reasonable price under $6. That’s a fraction of the $20 a beauty blender will run you.
I have used the sponge for about a month now and found that It works great for blending out liquid/cream/stick foundations along with your concealer. It works especially well for giving a natural appearance to your skin. All you do is wet the sponge and ring out the water, the sponge with grow a bit bigger and bouncier. I like to make sure I get all the water out by drying it in a towel. 

Once your sponge has grown in size and all the water is out just smooth out what ever product you are using (foundation, concealer, cream bronzer and blush)by bouncing the sponge over your face.
The key is to blend in this bouncing motion rather than swiping the sponge across your face.  This technique will insure the best looking coverage and won’t just wipe away your entire product.
 
This sponge has 3 different sides. A rounded side for large areas of the face, a Flat edge that is perfect for small contours around the nose and eye and lastly the precision tip which helps cover any blemishes you may have.

I highly recommend trying out this little guy; it makes my make-up application so much easier! Even if you are a die-hard fan of the beauty blender this might be the perfect less expensive alternative!

Have you ever tried this tool before? I would love to hear your opinion, leave me a comment!
