Real Techniques 2 Miracle Complexion Sponges
These are worth having!
All the reviews are on the single sponge but I bought this twin pack thinking I could have one clean to use and the other washed and ready. However, I had read about the original Beauty Blender and users were also using their Blender with powder products not just foundation. These sponges are a fine texture in soft foam, egg shaped, with a pointed end and a rounded end which also has a flat area. I use one for foundation mostly with the flat surface. It blends the foundation very well and can be used dry or damp (so you can use it immediately after washing). The other I use for powder products. The pointed end can be used to apply powder eye shadow, Just rub the point gently into the shadow. I do this mostly for the base colour but have tried it successfully with a darker, contouring colour. You can apply powder or cream blusher with the other end using the rounded part rather than the flat surface. When washing it is difficult to get them looking totally clean but it is enough. I just use the anti bacterial liquid soap I have in the bathroom. I squeeze them in a towel to remove excess water and leave to air dry.

From now on I won't apply my makeup with anything else! Its great to apply foundation with, without caking up your face. I use the pointy end for concealer under my eyes and the sponge is great as doesn't apply too much product in one place. It creates a natural finish especially when the sponge is a little damp. Easy to clean.

Versatile and great value
This sponge is definitely the best I've used and is especially amazing for the price.
The shape makes the sponge very versatile. I use the flat edge to apply foundation, the rounder side for applying cream blush/highlight and the pointed tip for blending my under-eye concealer.
I highly recommend getting the twin pack so you will always have a backup or to use one for liquid products and the other for powder products.
