H&M have been a little hit and miss with me across the years, their clothing is lovely but the sizing is often difficult to figure out. I’ve always been intrigued by their beauty selection as I know again some people say it’s hit and miss, certain products are fantastic but others are a little difficult to work with.
So, when I was in there recently I saw that they had their own beauty sponge for a bargain of £1.99! I’m always interested in testing new sponges because they’re such a statement in my routine that if I can find an affordable one then I’m always pleased!
Don’t get me wrong, it’s an OK sponge. I do find that the sponge sucks up a lot of product which is so irritating and the faint bumps along the sponge can transfer and make the foundation or concealer look weird and leaves marks.
SPONGE VS BRUSH
I tested the sponge on one side of my face and a brush on the other side. Personally, I preferred the finish that the brush gave me because it just looked more full coverage and flawless. Whereas the sponge just took away and sucked up the product. So it made the one side of my makeup less full coverage and a little more cakey.
I really do think the Real Techniques sponges are really worth the money and I would rather invest in the more expensive sponges (only like £4 more) since they are more effective. They don’t suck up the product and actually really do make the products look flawless and exactly how I like it.
