A Sponge away to Flawless Makeup!

I was given a chance to try out the TOFU Professional Makeup Sponge. Makeup Sponges are popular among makeup artists as they can spread the foundation more evenly on skin to create the flawless look. Frankly speaking, i had never try using makeup sponges for applying foundation. My fingers are my tools in spreading them but since i'm given a chance, i decided to give it a go.

I received these 3 lovely pack of sponges from Sharon.

This is the Tofu-like packaging one. For those who had bought Tofu from supermarket would know what i mean. It really reminds me of Tofu.

Side view of the Tofu-Like packaging. The side and bottom are transparent so you can spot the content.

Details of Distributor and Japanese Language explanation?

Its sealed and you just have to peel off the top from the side.

I was surprised that they actually double seal the sponge. Other than the outer box, they actually packed the sponge in sealed plastic.

Each pack contains two pcs so for one set, there are 2pcs x 2 = 4 pcs in total!

They are cut in a way, the sponges still sticks together to form the rectangle shape.

Sample of how the sponges look like after seperated.

This is the same product BUT in lovely heart shaped! really sweet looking.

Simply peel open the pack like you do with snack.

Look at this heart-shaped sponge, its really cute and in sealed plastic packaging too.

The heart are also held together.

Next is the sponge pact in zip-lock pack, its a for travel pack.

There are two sponge pact in each pack.

Introduction from on TOFU:

  • Good elasticity & does not get out of shape easily
  • Can be used dry or wet, comes in different shapes
  • High durability for repeated use
My Review:

I personally only tried the 1st type in Tofu-Like packaging! As i mentioned, i never try using makeup sponges in applying foundation so i wasn't used to the feeling of that initially but now i'm loving it! The good thing about using the makeup sponge is that my liquid foundation can now be more evenly spread leaving no fingerprints behind. I can double conceal hideous spot by applying a dabbing motion with the concealer using the makeup sponge. In case you ask, i only tried using this dry so i'm not sure how does the wet one goes? I had been hooked on using this for the past week and guess i'm addicted to the finish that it does to my skin.
