Sponge is my saviour!

As a teenager currently trying to start and expand my make-up bag and tools, I have recently found myself on a mega search for everything I need to make it complete(which is impossible really...) When going on the hunt for new things, I ALWAYS find myself being very cautious of what I buy; I always check to make sure I've found the cheapest version and read LOTS of reviews for the product. One thing I was dying to find was a foundation applicator which gave an overall flawless look since I wasn't completely happy with a brush I had been using.

After watching multiple YouTube videos I found many people liked to use sponges;easy to use and a flawless coverage. I then researched and found Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. After ordering the sponge along with a couple of other make-up products, it soon came in a lovely little packaging and I was SO excited to use it!

One of the great qualities of this sponge is that you can either use it dry or damp depending on if your skin is dry or oily. I LOVE the way it expands when wet seeming like magic before your very eyes! When using the sponge, the coldness of the sponge gave a fresh feeling and made applying foundation SO much easier. The unique shape of the sponge meant the different ends and edges could be used for foundation, concealer, and for contouring(though I haven't ventured that far into make-up yet...)

I have to admit, I did not see much of a difference between the sponge and a brush but it definitely made applying easier and have decided to invest in some better quality foundation since my current one is very cheap and was only used a a tester for make-up in general. 

If you want to buy one of these AMAZING sponges, I got mine for Boots(UK store) for £5.99, great price for a great product!
