When it comes down to some of the best beauty brushes and sponges you’ll find – and at drugstore beauty prices, to boot – you can’t get much better than the Real Techniques line. I’ve recently been using and enjoying one of their newest releases, the Real Techniques Miracle Sculpting Sponge.
Created by the beauty influencing sisters Nic and Sam Chapman better known as the Pixiwoo duo, the Real Techniques line of brushes and sponges are excellent across the board. They’ve recently added 8 new sponges to their lineup and I’ve been reviewing them over the past few weeks (see here and here). I’m a big fan and hardly pick up my Beautyblender at all anymore, to be honest. I get the results I want at a fraction of the cost, which is evenly applied foundation that doesn’t look caked on.
The Real Techniques Miracle Sculpting Sponge is definitely one of the most clever sponges I’ve seen to date. It’s latex-free and can be used either dry or wet with powders, creams, and liquid products. The smaller side is to be used for adding highlight.
The larger side is for contouring products.
What’s really nifty about this sponge is that both the smaller and larger sides are have a flat as well as a rounded edge. I use the flat edge to apply the products and make sure everything is blended in with the rounded end. It’s a win-win situation.
In this video I show you how I use the sponge to highlight and contour my face. I used the sponge dampened with the Jesse’s Girl Contour Palette, Ofra Cosmetics Highlighter in Rodeo Drive, and Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush in Rose.
My Final Thoughts: The Real Techniques Miracle Sculpting Sponge is a nice tool that works well with powders and creams to contour and highlight your face. It works beautifully and I enjoy using it. This sponge will last 1 – 3 months.
