    WORST SPONGE EVER

        Comments about Real Techniques Dual-Ended Expert Sponge:

        I would so prefer to give this product no stars, however there is no option for that. This has got to be the worst sponge I have ever purchased. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! I prefer the miracle complexion sponge, if you are going for a cheaper dupe of the beauty blender. This one, however, is way too hard and does not blend my makeup at all. If anything, it absorbs the makeup right into the sponge. What a waste!

          The sponge does not expand at all when dampped. I've had it for a week and already fell apart, crumbling to pieces. Stick with regular RT sponge!

          Seems stiffer then the the complexion sponge. You can not easily blend out contour.

                          Hi Noorelhileh,

                          That's a great question - this sponge is a different type of material from our regular Miracle Complexion Sponge. This is meant to be used dry only. We will be posting a tutorial video on Ulta's product page within the next week that really shows how to use the sponge.

                          Because you're using it dry, you will get fuller coverage than using it wet,

                          Hope that helps!

                        Can you also use the pink side to apply foundation or only the orange side?

                          Hi Cristina,

                          Thanks for your question on this brand new sponge!! The wonderful thing about our brushes and sponges is that, for the most part, there aren't any hard & fast "rules" about how to use them - it's all about however they work for you to get the look that you want. :)

                          So, if you like how the pink side works for applying foundation, absolutely go for it!

                          Thanks!
