REVIEW: Real Techniques Miracle Sculpting Sponge


If you’re a fan of all things beauty or have recently walked down the beauty tools aisle in Boots, you would have noticed that the gorgeous Pixiwoo girls have released some new miracle sponges as part of their collection. Regular readers to StephiSays, will know I’m already a massive fan of their Miracle Complexion Sponge (the orange one!), so when I knew they were bringing out three new types of sponges, I got really excited!

 
Added to their Real Techniques collection now is; the Diamond Sponge (as part of the bold metal range), mini easer sponges and a sculpting sponge. The first new sponge I wanted to try was the Sculpting Sponge because I liked the unusual shape with different sides and edges to do different jobs in applying  my make-up.

 
This little pink sponge claims to be one tool with 6 uses; a large rounded side to blend, a large flat edge to apply contour, small flat edge to apply highlight, a small rounded side to also blend along with a large and small tip for different areas of your face. And I love it! It really does have the perfect shapes and edges to reach those hard to reach places. I love it mainly for blending in my concealer under my eyes and around my nose, but I’ve also tested in applying cream contour too and it’s great!

 
A word of warning however, is just be careful when washing this sponge. Due to the unusual shape, it’s quite weak in the middle/thinnest part of the sponge. I usually wash my makeup blenders with baby shampoo under running water and whilst I was in a rush I did accidently tear my sponge. Just something to be aware of, because I’m already on my second sculpting sponge. But yes, it’s that good that I repurchase another one after my little accident. I just can’t wait to try the rest of the new sponges!

Have you tried the new Real Techniques Miracle Sculpting Sponge? Have you tried any of the other new miracle sponges?
