I know I am definitely not the first person too do a post on the Beauty Blender & The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
I really cant say that the RT Miracle Complexion Sponge is a dupe, because I have not used tones of other make -up sponges to say they these two sponges are dupes. Hope you guys get what I am saying. I tested out these two sponges with not having a dupe like mind set. I just wanted to try them and see for myself how they apply foundation etc.
♥First of the Beauty Blender retails for 19.95, I got mine for 17.95 on E-Bay
♥The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge retails for $5.99 at Ulta.
*So yes there abit of a price difference.
I am here to share what I have found with the two sponges.
Keep in mind I opened up both my sponges at the same time and I used both sponges to apply my foundation on each side of my face.
Also keep in mind that I have also never used the original Beauty Blender so its not like I was biased towards the RT Miracle Complexion Sponge.
The Beauty Blender has really changed the make-up game in the last couple of years. Its a product most beauty lovers have in their make-up collection.
♥ Developed by make -up artist Rea Ann Silva
♥Provides a perfect blend without any streaks – flawless like finish
♥ Gets to hard to reach parts of the faces -highlights, contours
♥ Its really soft and bouncy
♥ Expands really fast when you wet it
♥ Comes in three colours – pink, black and white
♥ Latex Free- Non- allergenic
♦Its difficult to clean
♦ The cleaning solution is pricey
♦ Its retails for $20 – pricey (close eyes)
The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge has been given the dupe status. I have not been using the Beauty Blender that long to use that word.
♥ Developed by make-up artist Samantha Chapman ( Love her make-up brushes)
♥ Smooth Application – no streaks
♥ 3 in 1 tool – ,precision, pointy, flat edge
♥ Latex Free
♥ Expands well
♦ Difficult to clean – a little more than the Beauty Blender
♦ Does not have a special cleaning product
♦ Soak up abit more product
♦ Does not get wet as fast as the Beauty Blender
♦ It does apply the foundation smoothly – though it did not give me a flawless look
****The Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is a great alternative if you don’t want to spend $20 on a make -up sponge. Especially if you are just starting with make-up, or university student, The RT Miracle Complexion Sponge is perfect for you, it gets the job done***
I will say the Beauty Blender is an awesome make -up sponge and its worth $20. It just sucks when you have to replace it 🙁
I will be using both sponges its not like I am going to through out one of them. I am happy with the results each one of the sponges give me.
To be honest like the Beauty Blender more just because it gave me that flawless look that we all want when applying our foundation. Im not saying I don’t like the RT Miracle Complexion Sponge, I think it is a awesome make-up sponge, and the fact that it is $6. You really cant beat that!!!
I really think if you can you should try to purchase both sponges so you can judge for yourself to see which one you would prefer.
They are definitely not the exact same product, but they are pretty close.
We also have to keep in mind that the Beauty Blender has been around a little longer then the RT Miracle Complexion Sponge.
