Rosy Rosa 3D Beauty Sponge

I think I have found my HG makeup sponge.

The Rosy Rosa 3D Beauty Sponge can be used either wet or dry. I personally prefer using it wet as it helps prevent my foundation from caking. It also allows for larger coverage and application at a time due to the sponge’s increased size when damp.

I forgot to take photos of the sponge when it’s wet and dry for comparison, but I did take videos. I hope size difference is obvious. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

The Rosy Rosa 3D Beauty Sponge is now my holy grail makeup sponge because it performs like a hybrid of the Beauty Blender and the EcoTools Total Perfecting Blender (or even the Dior Backstage Blender). These three are the only makeup sponges I have used so far. I liked them, but not enough to stick to any of them.

It has the softness of the Beauty Blender and a similar pointed tip that I use for precise concealing under my eyes. The flat side reminds me of the EcoTools blender, which I prefer for applying liquid foundation. It covers a larger area than using the bottom of the sponge. Then, I use the opposite side of that flat part for bronzer or blush, or both.

It has only been recently that I started using a sponge for powder bronzer and blush. I find it easier to blend the products on my skin, preventing any harsh streaks of color.

The sponge is also great for sheer blushes. Other than the fact that it picks up more product, it’s easier and faster to layer with than with a brush. I only have to be careful not to apply too much. ๐Ÿ™‚

Contains instructions on how to apply powder and liquid makeup with it, and advises not to put liquid makeup directly on it because it is highly absorbent.

My only concern with this is its availability. I bought the Rosy Rosa 3D Beauty Sponge from a Matsumoto Kiyoshi branch in Tokyo for less than JPY500, and I should have bought moreโ€”or all the spongesโ€”from that branch. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I only have one backup left, so I guess I need to stock up on my next trip to Japan. ๐Ÿ˜ I could stick with any of the other sponges I’ve tried, but why should I when I’ve found my holy grail? LOL

Anyway, Rosy Rosa stuff should be available at other drugstores and cosmetics stores in Japan. In the Philippines, I’ve seen resellers on Shopee, and the cheapest is at PHP390, as of writing. It’s not bad, but it could be cheaper with a coupon. ๐Ÿ˜‰
