REVIEW: Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

So I was thinking of getting a BeautyBlender, but then – gasp – an adult thought hit me! What if, what if, I spent less money on cosmetics this payout? So I went ahead and acted like a grown-up, and ordered this product from BeautyMNL.

(Sidenote: I have gotten a lot of people at the office to buy from BeautyMNL. They should send me gift certificates.)

It’s less than half the price of a BeautyBlender and it’s from a reputable brand, too! So let’s see how it performs…


Texture is very soft and smooth. It’s a pleasure to dab, slap, and pat this on the face.

I used it to apply foundation, concealer, contour powder, and a cream blush.



The sponge soaks up product, but not enough for me to complain. I typically use a stippling brush which I feel just lets the product sit on my face. With the flat end of this sponge, though, I felt as though I were really pushing the foundie into my skin. The effect is a more natural-looking, dewier look.



I used the pointed tip to apply my Revlon concealer under my eyes and on my blemishes. The pointed tip does a great job at blending the concealer under my eyes and patting the product into place on my blemishes.



Okay, I didn’t use this to apply contour; I used it to blend contour, which worked better than ever since I didn’t see any harsh lines whatsoever as compared to when I use a blush brush.



Used the rounded end, scooped out some cream blush, and dabbed it onto my cheeks. Again, more product than usual was necessary to achieve the usual look I go for. But it applied the blush pretty well and gave me a rosy glow. Bonus: it doubles as a makeup eraser when I’m heavy-handed!


It does tear a bit easily, so you have to be careful when washing it. Overall, though, I’d say this is a solid product for its price.
