      Does a great job and can't beat the price...specially if you compare it to the beauty blender. I have both and I can't tell the difference when it comes to applying foundation. Def stocking up on this!

        Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge:

        Love this sponge! I decided to try it because I love the real techniques brushes and I'm so happy I did! I have the beauty blender and I barely used it, but I used this Sponge daily. I think it's a little softer than the beauty blender and I like that. I also love that its bigger. I have no time to waste in the morning and this gets my foundation blended quickly & flawlessly. I do dampen it before I start my make up so it has a chance to dry out a little before I use it. I find it doesn't make my foundation too sheer that way. I have purchased another one and I will continue to do so.

        Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge:

        This sponge is amazing! I use this to apply my foundation and concealer; it blends ny foundation amazingly as well as the concealer. As far as the flat bottom it works perfectly for blending my foundation evenly. The pointer part is great for the under the eye and gives an amazing finish! It is a little harder to get it clean and get the stains off but it's still a great sponge compare to high end ones.

                I bought this because I've had my beauty blender for a few months and it needs replaced. I've only used it a few times but I can already tell it does the same job as the beauty blender and it was only six bucks! I will continue to repurchase this over the BB any day. Love it!

                  Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge:

                  I bought this after reading mixed reviews and I love it. It's not the regular one you buy from sephora but it is very much like it. The complaint on here that scared me the most was that it
                  lost its shape and wasdeformed once you wet it. YES that happened to me but I still used it and when I was done I used a TINY bit of water and softly kept squeezing it, wrapped it around a towel lightly squeezed and let it dry. It went back to shape!! It happened again (deformed)and it stayed that way. Then after that it went back to shape. POINT IS I DON'T CARE as long as the product works and does what I paid for it to do I am happy, deformed or not both sides serve their purpose. So if your looking for a great sponge applicator and don't want to spend all that money...YOU FOUND IT!

                          This is my first time using anything like a "Beauty Blender". I researched and saw good reviews on this so I gave it a try. I'm very happy with it. Works well, washes well. I will say after a few months (daily use) that it does start to somewhat fall apart. Not bad, but you can tell when it's time for a new one.

                          Love this sponge! I alternate between this and the Real Techniques foundation brush for applying foundation. This dampened sponge gives a really pretty natural finish (although I find it sometimes sheers out my foundation a little more than I would like - on days I want more coverage, I use a brush), and because of the large flat end, I can blend out foundation quickly! The pointed end is really great for getting into nooks and crannies - really good for blending any undereye concealer you might use. Overall, I think it's a great alternative to pricer sponges!

                              This sponge soaks up so much product - definitely more than the most. However, it's so easy to use, and is faster to give a good finish than using my foundation brush + stippling brush.

                                  This sponge can be cleaned easily using a brush cleaner or mild shampoo. Simply wet the sponge, apply the brush cleaner/shampoo, and massage to create a lather. Rinse thoroughly, squeeze out excess water, and allow to fully dry.

                                  This product features a very similar design: rounded sides to blend large areas of the face with a repeated dabbing or “stippling” motion, a precision tip to cover blemishes and imperfections, and a flat edge for the contours around the eyes and nose. This product currently has a 4.6 (out of 5) star rating from ULTA shoppers just like you, with over 100 reviews!
