Just under a year go, I did a post on the Cosmopolitan Blend Perfection Sponge which you can read here. I had initially bought it as a dupe for the ever raved about Beauty Blender after I scrolled though endless swooning reviews from fellow bloggers. That being said, I am now on to my second sponge (due to wear and tear), and it still remains the only piece of beauty kit that I will reach for to apply my foundation and/or concealer. I am overwhelmed with the flawless coverage that make-up sponges produce, and can safely say that I won't be venturing near brush tools for quite sometime.
Since I am endlessly declaring my love for beauty sponges, I thought it was only natural to have a browse online at other competing alternatives, and stumbled upon the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge £5.99. I am a big fan of the Pixiwoo sisters, and already a lover of their brush line in terms of powder, blush and contour, which have featured many times here on Beauty Toolkit!
This particular sponge is different in a variety of ways; it doesn't need to be damp before application, it has three distinct surfaces that give three different ways to apply foundation/ concealer and a flat edge to allow for contouring around the eyes and nose. Simply use a stippling motion with liquid foundation to create a smooth, enhanced and flawless finish.
The only negative I have on this tool, is that I found it to soak up a little excess product on first use (in comparison with my previous Cosmopolitan Sponge). I adore the three surfaces, as each can be used differently to cover certain areas of your face - I especially love the pointed end to apply concealer into the corners of my eyes where I am prone to redness.
Have you tried the Real Techniques Complexion Sponge? Do you have any recommendations on other beauty sponges?
