A fortnight ago, Beauty Chamber asked if I would like to review the new Sponge from Real Techniques.
Welcome to the newest edition from the Real Techniques range - the Miracle Complexion Sponge.
I am a huge fan of the Real Techniques brushes and personally think Samantha Chapman is a genius.
I must admit, from the onset, that I have never been a huge 'Sponge' fan when it comes to applying makeup. However, lately I have been looking for something that will help blend the foundation in better around those ever amounting mass of wrinkles and lines I seem to be getting - as 30 fast approaches.
First impressions were good, in a nice bright orange shade, this sponge is soft with 3 distinct surfaces. It has rounded edges, a precision pointed tip and a flat surface, ideal for those places on your face that are harder to blend i.e. the corners of your nose.
I like to use this sponge after I applying my foundation with the RT Buffing Brush.
The creases down the sides of mouth, I like to call them laughter lines, tend to gather foundation residue - by dabbing the sponge on and around this area the foundation blends better into the skin, thus resulting in less prominent lines.
Another bonus about this sponge is that it is easily cleaned and can be used damp in which it holds it's shape.
