Welcome to the second part of my favorite sponge series.
This time I’ll be talking about the real techniques makeup sponge which has been a long time favorite of mine.
In terms of material, softness, and application, it is no different than the beauty blender so well will skip that as application is exactly the same.
What I will be covering with this sponge is the shape of it as it is clearly different.
The sponge shape is slightly more rounded at the pointed end when compared to the beauty blender which does make it a little more difficult to apply foundation and concealer to tighter corners of the face such as the inner corner of the eyes and the crevices of the nose.
However, the other end, which is a flat slanted face, makes foundation and powder application far quicker compared to the beauty blender as the real techniques sponge has a far greater surface area. This makes it ideal for people who are looking to apply makeup in a short amount of time.
Not only is the real techniques sponge the quicker option for makeup application, but it is also far cheaper with a single sponge going for less than $5.
For those looking to experiment with sponge application, I would most definitely recommend the real techniques sponge.
