Hey everyone! Over the past few years, these sponges have changed the makeup application game. But which one is the best? Over the past few weeks, I have been trying BOTH sponges on and off and I have noticed a lot of differences between the two. I will be reviewing the Beauty Blender Sponge Vs. Real Technique Miracle Complextion Sponge.
First of all, I bought the Beauty Blender sponge in Sephora for $20. I got the original color in pink. I bought the Real Techniques Sponge at Ulta for $5.99 in the color orange.
I found very big differences between the two sponges. First of all, the price difference is huge! There is a $14 difference between the 2 sponges. Application: I used the same technique for application for both sponges. Bouncing the sponge onto the face gives a flawless/natural finish look. The beauty blender applied the makeup flawlessly, while using the real technique I has to try a little harder to get the same effect. But, I was very impressed by how well the real techniques applied makeup knowing its only $6.
Cons about the Real Techniques sponge: After a few uses I started noticing that my sponge had some tearing. I was not using in a harsh manner in my face, I was just bouncing it and it was tearing more and more every time used it.
Cons about Beauty Blender: Honestly the only con I could think of with the Beauty Blender is that it’s $20. That’s expensive for just a sponge.
I thought they both worked really well. But, I see my self going for the beauty blender for my makeup application. I feel like the real techniques sponge tore really quick while the beauty blender stayed the same. I do believe that the real techniques sponge is great for only being $5.99. If you are looking for an inexpensive sponge I would reccomend Real Techniques.
