Budget Beauty | Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge


When I discover something I love I tend to stick to it..

That's how I felt with my BeautyBlender, literally nothing would come close. I heard many people rave about the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge but to be honest I'm a little biased and tend to stick to what I know. That all changed when I was on a make up shoot a few weeks ago, the make up artist used the RT sponge and I asked him his thoughts on it and he spoke quite highly of it. The next day I decided to finally use mine and I have to say I was majorly impressed. Once damp I find the sponge a lot firmer than my Beautyblender but what I love about it is the flat edge I find this amazing to buff in my foundation. I then use the tapered end for my concealer and powder under my eyes, it fits the area so well. I have to say I've been using this for the last 3 weeks and I adore it, don't get me wrong I will always find use for my Beautyblender but this is coming in very close.

I think if you're on the fence about buying a Beautyblender and want a cheaper alternative, this an amazing option. I love the Real Techniques brushes and now this sponge is part of my everyday make up routine.

The moral of the story - Be open to trying new things haha! It's not that deep, it is just a sponge BUT you can discover greatness when you do!

Have any of you tried this?

Lots of Love


  1. I have the MAC sponge blender and I love it but I always wanted to try the RT one, think I might do now :)

  2. I'm obsessed with it!! I use it every day too.

  3. I really love the RT Sponge. I agree, the flat side is awesome for foundation. I really want to try the Beauty Blender but it's just so darned expensive! If it were a brush that would be one thing but a sponge really needs to be replaced after a few months even though I wash it daily. They just get a little yucky!
