Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge - Reviewed!

I never thought I would be a fan of using a sponge to apply my foundation. None of the ones had taken my fancy but when Real Techniques brought out their offering my ears pricked up due to them being my favourite brand for makeup brushes, especially when it comes to face ones. I've been using this for a few weeks now so I thought it was about time I shared my thoughts.

The sponge claims to give high definition results and a flawless base. The sponge feels dense and has a flat section on one end a point on the other. Meaning you can use different parts of the sponge to get it harder to reach place, such as under the eyes and around the nose.

To use, you dampen with water and squeeze off any excess. By doing this the sponge expands to about 2x it's original size. I've tried this with a few different foundation and BB Creams, the best way is to apply the product to the back of your hand them using a dabbing motions apply the product to your face working from the center outwards.

The results are definitely flawless, this makes all my foundations look nicer on and more natural. It is also great for blending in concealer over the top of foundations. I would say that using this to apply my base products even improves the wear time, you can really blend in the product so it looks almost like skin. 

I've been really impressed with this, my main concern would be how you clean this. I've found using a bit of soap or baby shampoo works really well and it cleans as easy as normal brushes. I would definitely recommend this if you're looking for a new way to apply your foundation because it is perfect for creating a flawless finish. 

Have you tried this? What is your favourite way to apply your base products?
