Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge Review, Price, Buy Online
INTRODUCTION – Hello everyone. Hope you all are doing well. The Miracle Complexion Sponge of RT family was a part of my haul and I have been waiting to use it for a long time. I have already reviewed the Real Techniques Core Collection Set and love the brand. Beauty Blender wasn’t available and thus I had to go with this one. I have used the PAC Beauty Blender before but it wasn’t long lasting and started tearing apart with few months and I had to buy another one. After using this one for 2 months, here’s my review on it.

The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge comes in a thick synthetic plastic sort of a material which is sturdy but not good enough for storing the sponge. So I believe you have to use proper storage for the sponge. The sponge is bright orange in color but with passage of time and regular usage, I have seen the color fading but it never deposits any chemical on the face. Coming to the most important part of the sponge, the shape. It has a unique shape of conical end with flat top edge. The RT sponge is considered to be a step-sister of the Beauty Blender which works pretty much same like this. The sponge is bigger is shape (compared to my PAC Beauty Blender) and I feel this one is much easier to work with.
When first touched the sponge as soon as I opened the box, it felt small but the moment you run it under tap water and squeeze it, it increases in size, almost 40 to 50% of the original size. It also feels firm yet soft enough to gentle on the skin. I have used it under eyes and it has never been hard and irritating to blend. The firmness ensure that the sponge isn’t easily going to tear down while using and washing and the softness is great enough to blend. The sponge also doesn’t absorb too much product even if it is a liquid foundation or liquid concealer. In this way, it doesn’t sheer out the coverage of the product as well and deposit and blend the color on the skin.
Also, I apply the foundation on the skin with the help of fingers and then blend with the sponge well. The pointy end of the sponge is great for under eyes. It reaches out to the difficult portions like inner corners and sides well and blend beautifully. The dome shaped body is great for dabbing the color on the skin and blend them. The flat edge is ideal for covering the larger areas easily. The sponge is also a good one for apply mineral powder foundations and even compacts! I have applied powders for baking and also blended strobing cream on the highest points. It works as good as brushes and sometimes even better than brushes.
The cleaning of the sponge is also easy. In a small bowl, I fill in with baby shampoo or any gentle shampoo and mix water with it to form a solution. I soak the sponge for some time and gentle rub the sides to clean off. It easily washes off and doesn’t tear out. The takes some time to dry out completely but never loses the shape at all. This is why it is durable and it is going to last preferably a very long time for me even though I use it twice or thrice a week. The RT sponge has been compared with the stepsister Beauty Blender numerous times and since I don’t have the latter I can’t comment on it. But one thing I would say that RT Sponge is easily available on discount but Beauty Blender is way too expensive for a sponge.
OVERALL – Thus, the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is a makeup sponge which would give you a flawless finish for the base and coverage as well. it takes very less time and makes the application as easy as it can be. Whether you are a pro or a beginner, this is surely a must have tool for you.

WHAT I DISLIKED
RATING – 9/10
Editor’s Note: I have never tried this, my PAC one also tore in the first 1-2 washes itself. I absolutely love the YBP Makeup Perfector, it’s my favourite and makes blending everything super easy and seamless. I might try this sometime, have heard a lot about it.
