Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Diamond Sponge:

I just reviewed the Miracle Diamond Sponge and compared it to the Beauty Blender! Honestly it performed really well!
It might take a couple of applications to get used to the shape of this blender, but it has 13 facets that you can use which give you more options!
Definitely worth a try! If you don't like it it's not too pricey either :)

Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Diamond Sponge:

I typically use this product for foundation and concealer application. I love using the smallest edges for initial application of the product. The medium size sides are pretty good for blending out applied product but will sometimes leave small streaks. These are typically easily buffed out with the largest side. I find myself accidentally tearing small holes in my RT orange sponges and have not yet had such issues with the MDS.

    Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Diamond Sponge:

    I bought this product after seeing many different makeup artists I watch use it. I walked into my local Ulta one day and saw that they had it in stock and grabbed one to finally try. It expands nicely and the different textures and edges make my foundation application look flawless. The pointed tip gets right into my inner corner and crevices of my nose and blends out my concealer without making it look patchy. I love this beauty sponge better than the original Real Techniques beauty sponge. I definitely will be repurchasing this product again!

                Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Diamond Sponge:

                This was great at applying foundation and concealer- my only gripe is that it is awkward to hold esp when you use both ends... and it's too pretty- it took me forever to break into the packaging because I didn't want to mess up the grey/white marble color of the sponge! I really like how this sponge gets into all the hard to blend places like all areas of the nose, the little space between the eyes, the dark caves near my tear ducts, and on the sides of the forehead for blending. Not only is it a litttle bit hard to hold when using both sides, but I also think the top portion of the sponge soaks up a lot of the foundation I used.

                    A:

                    Hi des,

                    There are certain situations where that phrase "you get what you pay for" is true. I don't think this is one of them. Our Miracle Complexion Sponge is, without a doubt, our most popular item in the Real Techniques line not only because it's affordable, but also because it is high quality.

                    One of the reasons I would probably recommend going with the Miracle Complexion sponge is its affordability. Because of the porous nature of these sponges, you will want to change it out every 90 days or so, based on how you use it. If it was something you bought once every year, a splurge might be the way to go - but because you will need to replace it pretty often, your wallet might like it better if you went with the Miracle Sponge.

                    And, you can also buy our Twin Pack Miracle Complexion Sponge and save a few bucks (http://www.ulta.com/miracle-complexion-sponge-set?productId=xlsImpprod12231055)!

                    If you do a search for Beauty Blender vs Miracle Sponge on Google or YouTube, you will probably find a lot of people saying that the Miracle Sponge is the way to go. I tend to agree with them! :)

                    Thanks!
