The Real techniques miracle complexion sponge is an affordable ($6.00-$9.00) and high quality makeup applicator that is rumored to be a dupe for the favored ($19.95) beautyblender. I think the quality in both products are comparable and well designed. I believe the Real Techniques Beauty Sponge is an improvement to the sponge applicator category. Check out my Real techniques miracle complexion sponge Review.

Real techniques miracle complexion sponge Review – Improvements

I love the flat side to applying foundation

I love the flat side to applying foundation

The best thing about the Real Techniques Beauty Sponge design is the cleaver addition to usability. Real Techniques added a flat surface to one side of the beauty sponge. This makes the sponge more comfortable to handle and use. I LOVE applying a dab of foundation directly to the flat surface. You don’t have to worry about any foundation rolling off this sponge.

After I apply my foundation with the flat side, I like to further blend it out with the dome side. This is especially helpful to make a smooth blended transition between your neck and chin area. Also great for blending out from the center of your forehead to outer hairline.

You can apply as little or as much foundation as you want. Here’s a couple tricks for best results.

Light coverage: Use the sponge dampened

Full coverage: Use the sponge dry

My favorite foundation I like to use with this sponge and in general is my e.l.f. Flawless finish foundation. Read my elf flawless finish foundation review

What happened to my Real techniques miracle complexion sponge ?!

After six months of bliss, my Real techniques miracle complexion sponge bit the dust. It’s starting to fall apart! Take a look at the photos of my Real techniques miracle complexion sponge.

How to clean the Real techniques miracle complexion sponge

I need to wash my sponge every two days or at least once a week. The sponge easily absorbs all types of foundations. It locks it in deep, making it hard to clean. I use warm water and dish soap. Here’s how I wash all my makeup brushes. I pour the soap onto the flat surface, dampen it and allow it to absorb the soap. After rinsing a few times and squeezing the sponge, it looks fairly clean. Because the Real techniques miracle complexion sponge is so dense and porous, it makes it hard to get 100% makeup free. I believe this is what eventually ruins the texture of the sponge. Over washing this sponge can run it ragged!

Real techniques miracle complexion sponge Review – final thoughts

This beauty sponge is well worth the money and I recommend you replace it every six months. 😉 Another reason to replace the Real techniques miracle complexion sponge is to keep the quality nice. Another great reason is to keep the sponge free from any bacteria building up in the depths of the sponge.

I believe the Real techniques miracle complexion sponge is superior over the original beautyblender. Not only is it cost effective, the design is better for usability. The coverage and blending is good if not better than the original beautyblender. Not to mention the original beautyblender requires expensive sponge cleanser for the sponge that’s $40! So in total, with the cleanser and sponge – the high end sponge will set you back $60 vs the Real techniques miracle complexion sponge $5. WOW. Really?

Where can I buy the Real techniques miracle complexion sponge?
