If you love the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge like me, you’re going to love the new Real Techniques Miracle Mixing Sponge.
It sounds so unique to any other beauty sponge I’ve seen before, and in all honesty a little strange but everyone loves a beauty gimmick, especially if it’s effective and I love the whole idea behind the Real Techniques Miracle Mixing Sponge.
Real Techniques Miracle Mixing Sponge
Place your liquid foundation, moisturizers, tint and complexion enhancers on the silicone surface. The finger-like surface will mix your makeup formulas to create a new makeup DNA free of absorption.
Use the rounded side to blend out and the pointed tip for targeted coverage. Can be used damp or dry with your favourite foundation and complexion enhancers!
The Real Techniques Miracle Mixing Sponge is currently an ULTA exclusive, and is $5.99 and hopefully it’ll launch in Boots and Superdrug very soon. Basically it’s a salmon pink coloured version of the original Miracle Complexion Sponge, except it has a very different base.
Usually the base of the Real Techniques sponges is completely flat which is helpful when baking, or sculpting the face. This sponge works just like the normal sponge, and can be dampened and used to bounce your base products into the skin.
However, the base of the Real Techniques Miracle Mixing Sponge features a silicone pad with a cute thumbprint line design and glitter. It’s designed so you can hold your sponge, and mix your base products and shades on the silicone pad and then use the pad to ‘dot’ the product onto the face, and then use the normal sides of the sponge to blend the product out into the skin.
It does sound quite weird, and I’m not all that sure it’ll work but I will 100% be giving it a try as it’s unlike any other blending sponge that’s on the market right now.
I don’t know how easy the Real Techniques Miracle Mixing Sponge will be to wash, and how robust it’ll be. Will the silicone section fall out, or become detached? I don’t know. But it’s a fun idea, and I’m all for a 2 in 1 design especially if it’s going to save me time within my makeup routine.
