Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge: Review
Application & Result:
To use the Miracle Complexion sponge, I wet it with water and squeeze out the excess. The sponge will become bigger and even softer. I then dispense some foundation on the back of my hands and then dab the sponge into the foundation and then stipple it on my face. The sponge gives a nice and even coverage but it does take longer to blend things out. The sponge will absorb some foundation so I will end up using more than I would if I used my hands.
The nice pointed tip is very convenient for going under the eyes and around the nose. I clean my sponge with warm water and soap after each use.

Overall:
I am still relatively to the makeup sponge/foundation brush scene as I still prefer using my fingers when applying foundation to the skin. But I think if you love using sponges to apply foundation, you will really appreciate this one from Real Techniques. Not only does it included a very convenient pointed tip, it is also significantly cheaper ($9.99) than some of the other sponges on the market.

Availability:
Real Techniques is available online at Farleyco and in stores at London Drugs, Walmart, select Familiprix, Lawton Drugs, Pharmasave, and Value Drug Mart across Canada.
