Real Techniques Bold Metals Diamond Sponge
I really wanted to love this sponge and rushed to buy it as soon as it had been released. I wish I'd of saved my money, it's awkward to use it doesn't blend as well I struggle to fit any side under my under eye. I have redness around my nose and couldn't blend concealer with this I had to use another sponge. Nowhere near as good as their miracle complexion sponge and double the price?! Save your money ladies I wish I had

Selling on the shape rather than functions
when I got this product I was hoping it would be multifunctional as described and would be the only sponge I'd need in my makeup bag. However I feel that Real Techniques are selling on the 'diamond shape' and the 'unique' marble design; which has no benefit to the product, just very visually attractive.
I found the sponge was quite difficult to hold and as each section has different uses, once you've used most of the sides you end up getting makeup on your hand which can be a little messy especially when you're getting ready for a night out.
I think I'd prefer buying the original complexion sponge and some others from the range as this sponge is really expensive compared to the others that work a lot better.

Really not impressed with this sponge. Feels very gimmicky.
The white and grey marble design looks nice... Until you actually use the sponge that is, and then it's impossible to clean and looks dirty. The shape I just don't understand. As soon as I wet my sponge the shape distorted and when using it the sponge squished, as sponges do, so there are no flat surfaces. I found it difficult to use, to hold to get in to corners like nose and eyes. I also found the finish it gave to be very disappointing. It seemed to soak a lot of foundation up meaning I had to use twice the normal amount and when blending it took my foundation off in patches. I wouldn't repurchase and I would just buy the standard real techniques miracle complexion sponges as they do the job perfectly. I really don't feel that there was any need to change up the design to this gimmicky diamond design, as far as I can tell it's no better and possibly worse than the standard sponge in the real techniques range.
