I’ve said it a million times, but I would pretty much marble my entire life. I’m doing it slowly – my bathrooms have undergone something of a marble makeover (although I’m still lusting over a bath carved entirely from the stuff), and I’d kill for Carrera marble counters in my kitchen. Until then though, I’m satisfying myself with slightly smaller finds.
Real Techniques’ Bold Metal Diamond Sponge is my latest acquisition, and to say I’m in love is something of an understatement. Shaped into a diamond and dip-dyed to look like marble, this is a sponge which is almost too pretty to use. I say almost – I had to buy a second one as they are just so pretty!
Not only does the sponge look amazing, but it’s pretty damn effective too! Made of incredibly soft sponge, it can be used both wet or dry, and I’ve been loving it slightly dampened to apply a flawless base. The diamond shape is so useful – each facet can be used for different areas of the face, and the tip is especially useful for getting into awkward areas around my eyes and nose without messing up my makeup!
Real Techniques Bold Metals Diamond Sponge is priced at £12 and is available here (UK)
