Well hello there! What’s been happening peeps? We came back holidays last month so we’ve been trying to catch up with a few life admins and working on the backyard to make it more “presentable” and hopefully be able to plant some pretty flowers.
Today I’m going to talk about some new goodies that joined the Real Techniques range – Ultimate Base Set, Miracle Mini Eraser Sponge and the Miracle Sculpting Sponge.
The Expert Face Brush has taken the beauty community by storm. There are over 1800+ reviews on a leading online store, how impressive is that? First impression of this brush is that it’s similar to the Buffing Brush. After testing this baby out, the expert face brush is more dense and has shorter bristles. Because of the shorter bristles, it’s better at buffing in liquid foundation. I’ve tried this brush with NARS Sheer Glow and Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation. Both products applied smoothly without any yuckky streaking. The brush does soak up foundation and I would recommend to wash often.
This Deluxe Concealer Brush is perfect for around the eye area to help blend concealers. I use this with cream concealer and then a bit of powder to help set the concealer. The brush is dense with rounded bristles making application so easy.
The great thing about using makeup sponges is you can either use it damp or dry. I personally prefer to use mine damp because it creates a nice dewy coverage. The Miracle Complexion Sponge has rounded edges for large areas around the face and a flat surface for the hard to reach places like eyes and nose. When using this sponge with liquid foundations it creates a smooth flawless surface.
The Miracle Mini Eraser Sponges were created to help with erasing any mistakes and with buffing/blending. I love using mine to correct my eyeliner when I’m too heavy-handed on my wing and also to help blend in my concealer. Depending on the eyeshadow, I found that it can smear eyeshadow fallout.
The Miracle Sculpting Sponge is by far my favourite sponge of all. This sponge has a total of 6 surfaces and I reckon if you’re new to the makeup sponge craze, this is definitely the one to start off with. I really love this oddly shaped sponge. I use the larger side on majority of my face and the small end under the eyes and nose. Again you can use this damp for a dewy glow or dry for full coverage. I’ve only used this sponge with liquids and powder but you can definitely use with cream products too. When damp the sponge expands to about 1.5 in size and feels really nice on the face.
Not only are Real Techniques great quality, their products also are very Instagram worthy. Anyway I hope you enjoy this post, please leave a comment below if you also love Real Techniques as much as I do!
