As I mentioned from an earlier post where I met the Pixiwoo sisters, here are the 3 new additions to the Real Techniques range :-
- Miracle Sculpting Sponge RRP $16.99
- Ultimate Base Set RRP $45
- Miracle Mine Eraser Sponges RRP $16.99
You can buy Real Techniques at Priceline* BTW.
Miracle Sculpting Sponge
This is a 6-surfaced sponge designed for highlighting (using the small side) and contouring (using the large side).
For everyday busy women and mamas out there, who has time to highlight and contour in the mornings?? Definitely NOT me.
I did find the large flat side useful for applying and blending out blush though when I ran out of clean blusher brushes.
And I can see how this Miracle Sculpting Sponge would be useful for those women out there who have time and skills to highlight and contour.
Ultimate Base Set
So this set contains 3 goodies and one dud.
The 2 makeup brushes are great with super soft bristles. The Expert Face Brush is great for applying and buffing liquid foundation. The Deluxe Concealer Brush is obviously meant for using with concealer – but I actually like to use it to apply eyeshadow because the dense brush picks up a lot of pigment.
I’m already a major fan of the Miracle Complexion Sponge – which is the NUMBER ONE SELLING PRODUCT IN PRICELINE!!! That’s a photo of the duo pack of sponges** – I bought these when they were on sale as a backup. I like to use this sponge in its damp state for applying liquid foundation or BB cream because it somehow makes my skin look more dewy than when I just use my fingers. It’s also great for blending in concealer under my eyes too.
As for the dud… it’s the Exclusive Mirror To-Go Case…which I assumed would fit both brushes but it didn’t….and I just don’t see the point in it really. Sorry! >_<
Miracle Mini Eraser Sponge
This cute little purple sponge comes in a pack of two. The sponge is dinky and used damp for blending away harsh lines and dry to sweep away makeup mistakes.
I like the idea of it but I have to admit that I didn’t reach out for it as much as I thought I would as I am so accustomed to using my fingers / cotton bud / makeup wipe when I make a makeup boo.
Instead, I think these Miracle Mini Eraser Sponges are a perfect gift if you have little mini-me’s who love to play with their mummy’s makeup!
Clearly, my beauty blogging genes have passed onto Little Miss B!
