By now everyone knows what the beauty blender is. Other than the beauty blender which is a bit more expensive, there are lots of different makeup sponges you can try. I've recently been giving the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge a go and I'm impressed with the quality. I got mine on iherb as it is a bit cheaper and I needed some other items from there as well.

The Miracle Complexion Sponge looks quite small {approx. 6.1cms} at first but absorbs quite a bit of water when you wet it, making it appear larger. This makeup sponge can be used for applying powder or cream products. The flat edge is great for using around your nose or under your eyes, the sides for large surfaces such as your cheeks, forehead etc, and the pointed tip is handy for concealing under your eyes and imperfections.

To apply your makeup using this sponge, you can either gently spread your makeup or bounce the sponge around your face and apply one section at a time {that is: forehead, first side, then second side}. I use a damp sponge and bounce it all over my face when applying my foundation, and it looks a lot more natural than when I use a buffing brush. I also really like that the sponge is easy to wash {and the colour doesn't fade} making it possible to use a clean tool for applying your foundation every time which is a big plus when struggling with acne.

The downside of using this as your method of application is that the sponge absorbs a bit more foundation than if using a brush or your fingers, but the end result definitely makes it worth the product waste for me. It also gives less coverage but you can always build up the coverage the way you need. In the end, I'm extremely happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to try a makeup sponge.

Overall Summary
Price -  €5.99
Likes - natural look, easy to wash.
Dislikes - wastes a bit of product.
Verdict - repurchasing.
Available - iherb, feelunique

Are there any other makeup sponges you would recommend?
