    I use the product applying foundation and blending my concealer. I like that it blends it in, but i feel that it soaks in some of the concealer so the coverage is slightly faded. I'm still getting used to using it!

      Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge:

      This sponge is great and inexpensive. Of course you must damp it up and goes well to blend on liquid foundation the best. I have not used it long enough to know if it actually is as effective as I would like it to be but so far it has been working as intended! To apply my foundation!

                    I use it everyday to apply my Kat Von D foundation and it goes on flawlessly every time! I use it damp. I just run it under water and than squeeze it. It's an awesome sponge and you can't beat that price! If you're thinking about buying this, buy it! You won't regret it! I haven't used it dry but I prefer using it damp anyways!

                            Similar to washing your makeup brushes, a brush shampoo or mild hair shampoo is the best way to thoroughly clean the sponge.

                            A:

                            While the Miracle Complexion Sponge can be used with lighter lotions (BB/CC Creams or lighter facial moisturizers, etc.), it was designed to be used with foundations, primarily. Since lotions usually have a heavier consistency, those who use them in that way may find that the sponge may need to be replaced much more often and/or it may not perform as well as it should after several lotion uses. For that reason, we would recommend that it's used with foundations, rather than lotions.

                          How well will this product work with a very liquid product like Maybelline Dream Wonder? It's not a thick liquid at all. Will that just soak right up into the sponge? Should a thicker foundation like Revlon PhotoReady be used instead.

                            The Miracle Complexion Sponge works best with foundations that are more liquid; however, it can be used with all types of foundation. Even pressed powder foundations are able to be used.

                          I know that the Beauty Blender is directed to be used damp, and this tool is very similar to the BB. However, I have read from previous questions that this sponge can be used damp or dry, so my question is which have you found works better, wet or dry??? Or does it depend on the type of product that is being used?? Like for example powder vs liquid.

                            "As with most of our items in the Real Techniques line, the 'beauty' is that you can use these however you like best! If you like to use the Miracle Complexion Sponge dry with liquid, go for it! Wet with powder -- awesome! It does really depend on the look you’re going for and the product(s) you’re using. The feedback we get most often on this fabulous item is that many of our customers like to use it damp with liquid foundation. However you use it, if you love it (and clean it regularly), we can’t ask for much more!"

                            This depends on how frequently you use the sponge. If you use it every day and/or wear a lot of foundation/concealer/powder, you should replace minimally every 30-45 days. If you are lighter makeup wearer and/or use the sponge 3-5 times a week, you can extend that time out to every 45-60 days.

                            How often the Miracle Complexion Sponge should be washed depends on how often you use it and how much product is applied with it. A good rule of thumb is to wash it, on average, approximately every two weeks. Similar to washing your makeup brushes, a brush shampoo or mild hair shampoo is the best way to thoroughly clean the sponge. If the sponge is being used heavily, wash it every week.
