Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge Review

Hey my beautiful angels…

Today I will be reviewing about Miracle complexion sponge from brand real technique. Real Techniques are without a doubt my favorite makeup brush brand and I have lots of their brushes. We all know last year there was boom for sponges all across the world. Make artist were making use more of sponge to set the makeup than brush. Well, even I thought to put my hand in the same and I have opted to go for Miracle complexion sponge which I managed to bring in my budget 😉. So, let’s have a closure look!

My first Experience with Miracle Complexion Sponge –

This sponge comes in hard transparent plastic packaging which is not that attractive. The sponge is of orange color which is almost like beauty blender. It has flat side on one edge and pointed size on another which I feel it’s a multipurpose sponge as you can contour, apply foundation, cream blushes and concealers easily and evenly.

You can use this sponge in both ways i.e. dry or damp. If you want to set your makeup or need a full coverage I would suggest you go for dry one and all just you must do is dab or sweep the flat side of the sponge on your face. And if you are looking for dewy or glowy look then damp the sponge and apply the foundation with it you will see the difference in both the look using same cosmetics.

I have tried both the looks and was quite happy, but I really liked the dry sponge look as it gave me full coverage plus flawless and natural base look. Also, I observed that if you apply foundation directly with sponge it absorbs your product and you end up using more than required. So, I prefer to apply foundation with stippling brush of same brand (which shortly I will be reviewing) and then just to give a flawless look I dab the sponge all over my face so that my makeup get settled on place. I avoided sweeping sponge on my face as I felt that it takes product off from my skin.

Even the pointed part of sponge helped me in achieving to apply even concealer as it can reach to inner corner of the eyes, nose, hairline giving it more natural look. It is important to have an even and flawless base coz that’s what will define your look and product above on that are just like cherry on top of ice-cream. I am happy that I have achieved this flawless base look which didn’t appear cacky.

Let’s have a look at the damp sponge. The damp sponge helps to lighten the makeup and give you more natural and glowy look. To be honest, I didn’t try dewy look much often as I felt that it didn’t suit me. Also, when I soaked the sponge in water I felt it became heavy as well as it didn’t grow as compared to beauty blender, that was a disappointment. Nonetheless, despite being damp it absorbs the product and again you might end up using excess product in both the cases.

I was disappointed to see small holes and cut in sponge after being washed 2-3 times. You can clean your sponges or brushes with mild shampoo or cleanser and don’t have to end up buying expensive cleansing products for this makeup tools. Also, I felt that you must keep this sponge properly as it is more exposed to germs and dust which can be reason for breakout on your skin.

Overall, I was satisfied with this sponge as it gave me flawless base look as they stated. The dabbing method really done wonders on my face to gain that natural base look without breaking out my product or turning cacky plus it was within my budget. I was dissatisfied at some point as after second wash I noticed small holes in the sponge and in 3rd wash there was slight cut in it ☹. This product didn’t turn that miracle to me as I ended up consuming more product than required with direct application of sponge.

I would recommend this product to all the beginners like me who can try their hands on it and later can shift to more high range sponges like beauty blender or YBP or any other brand.
