The New Real Techniques Sponges Are Amazing

Thank goodness for Real Techniques, because otherwise I'd have to take out a loan to stay up-to-date with all the beauty tools makeup has to offer. Real Techniques makes amazing beauty tools for a lot less, so when I found out they were releasing new makeup sponges, I was so excited. So how much does the Real Techniques Miracle Sponge Collection cost? Get ready to make it rain at the makeup counter.

For just $22, you can buy two new Miracle Mini Eraser Sponges, a new Miracle Sculpting Sponge, and the new Miracle Diamond Sponge. Yep, you read that right: You can get the entire new collection for less than Sunday brunch. The Mini Erasers come in sets of 2 for $6, and the Miracle Sculpting Sponge is $6 for a single. They're already available for purchase on, but the new Bold Metals Miracle Diamond Sponge won't go on sale until August 22. It's a 13-facet, marbled sponge the size of a 900 carat diamond designed to handle any product and application technique you throw at it. No two diamond sponges are the same, so your sponge is as unique as the ways you use it. So cool, right?

The Miracle Diamond Sponge will retail for $10 — a few dollars more than the original Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, since it is larger, more faceted and a part of the higher-end Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection.

Compared to the Orginal Beauty Blender which retails for $20, this diamond sponge is a huge savings.

Plus, it can replace multiple tools and can be used wet or dry (unlike most sponges).
