How crazy is it that it's already May? I felt like Christmas was yesterday! I can't believe how quickly the year is going. But in saying that, it's always exciting seeing the new products from brands and keeping up-to-date on everything fashion & beauty. Although these products I'm about to talk about aren't extremely new, they're still innovative and exciting enough to put a spotlight on!

So, I love makeup. Makeup is life, makeup is love. But what would makeup be without the right tools? Nothing, right? That's where Real Techniques comes in. I've bought my first Real Techniques brushes in 2012 after the amount of hype they received in the YouTube community. Which was natural, considering they were created by YouTuber's. I still use the brushes I use makeup and they've lasted SO well. So when the brushes pictured below came across my desk, I was over-the-moon and super excited to try them out!

If you're well-educated on the makeup world, you'd be aware of the excitement that surrounds beauty sponges. They're everywhere! A lot of people are preferring these over your ordinary brushes due to the natural finish you can achieve and how much product you can save when applying foundation. 

Here's some information on each product, including what they do and how much they retail for:

This is a dream for buffing in liquid foundation. It gives a flawless finish and the bristles are so soft!

The bristles on this brush are dense and rounded so that they can get into the crevices of the eyes. Perfect for blending and focusing on smaller details.

This brush does everything! The round side is great for blending liquids on larger areas of the face, whereas the flat edge helps to contour around the nose and eyes. The tip is ideal when it comes to covering small imperfections.

You can buy the three together in the Ultimate Base Set for $33.75 (price on publication)

This sponge has six surfaces to help you sculpt your face to perfection! The smaller side of the sponge is the best for highlighting and the large side for contouring. You can use this wet or dry, depending on whether you like a dewy or full-coverage look. This can be used for creams, liquids and powders.

You can purchase the Miracle Sculpting Sponge for $16.99 (price on publication)

Miracle Complexion Mini Sponge 2PC 
These have to be the cutest sponges on the planet! Gone are the days when eyeshadow fallout ruins your look or jabbing yourself in the face with a mascara wand with no return! These little miracles sweep away your makeup mishaps. They also help you blend harsh lines when you dampen it! They're my personal favourite. 

These Miracle Complexion Mini Sponges retail for $16.99 (price on publication)
