~Weekly Product Highlight~ Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge~

Looking Joli Good

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

This sponge is amazing even for full coverage foundation. It hides blemishes much better than a brush giving a more natural skin like finish.  The flat side is really good for stippling foundation, allowing you to build up more coverage where you need it and get rid of excess foundation where you don’t. The pointy side is great for application of makeup under the eye area.  The sponge can also be used to blend in liquid highlighter and cream blushes.

While you can use it damp or dry, I suggest that you definitely use it damp!  When damp, it makes application easy and gives a flawless look.  To dampen it, hold under running water and squeeze it until it has almost doubled in size.  Once the desired size is reached squeeze it out extra hard to remove all the excess water.

The price is great!…

Listen now to the wind, babe
Listen now to the rain
Feel that water lickin’ at my feet again
I don’t wanna see this town no more
Wastin’ my days on a factory floor
First thing you know I’ll be back in Bow River again

Anytime you want babe, you can come around
But only six days separates me and the great Top End
I been working hard, twelve hours a day
And the money I saved won’t buy my youth again
I’m goin’ for the heat babe, and the tropical rain
In a place where no man’s puttin’ on the dog for me
I’m waitin’ on the weekend, set o’ brand new tyres
And back in Bow River’s just where I want to be

Listen now to the wind, babe
Listen now to the rain
Feel that water lickin’ at my feet…
