Another day, another makeup sponge to obsess over. It wasn’t so long ago that makeup sponges were seen as necessary-but-slightly-boring tools. Now, launches of new sponges are being met with as much excitement as news about new palettes or lipsticks. The latest sponge to know about? That would be the new Sigma Beauty 3DHD Blender ($15).

While we have gotten used to seeing a lot of round and flat sponges, Sigma Beauty’s latest launch stands out because it has three distinct sides. While you might initially think that a three-sided sponge would create lines when you apply your makeup, the key thing with Sigma’s 3DHD Blender is that each side is designed for a different purpose.

The two flat sides take care of your general primer and foundation application, plus any contouring or baking you want to do. Then you can use the round side for blending everything to create a seamless finish. That’s not all. The sponge also features a pointed tip that is ideal for getting the product into hard-to-reach-areas. Think around your eyes or on the sides of your nose.

If you’re still not convinced, Sigma Beauty has a video explaining what makes the blender so great:

Other important features of the sponge include the fact that it’s latex-free and that you’re able to use it with liquids, creams and even powders.
