All Sanrio fans, unite! Get your wallets ready, because Korea is taking the Sanrio obsession to a whole new level by Sanrio-coding everything from skincare, lifestyle products, to even collaborating with popular food establishments like Baskin-Robbins and Dunkin’ Donuts.
While the sheer volume of Sanrio merchandise may seem pretty overwhelming already, beauty enthusiasts will notice one very important category missing from the list above: makeup.
You read that right! We get excited just thinking about getting Sanrio makeup, and it appears that rom&nd has read our minds because they just released the cutest Sanrio collection on July 1st!
rom&nd x Sanrio Nu Zero Cushion
While rom&nd has gained international recognition for their incredible lip products, we can’t ignore their cushion foundations, and the addition of the adorable packaging adorned with Kuromi and My Melody only added to our faith in its greatness.
The Nu Zero Cushion boasts a formulation with minuscule powder particles that effectively fill in pores, resulting in a natural and pore-free appearance on the skin with little to no oxidation. This cushion adheres ever so delicately to your skin, offering a refreshing and cooling sensation upon application.
If you’re seeking a fresh and lightweight semi-matte cushion for the summer, this one is sure to captivate your heart! The collection includes three shades:
- Pure 21: Designed for those with fair skin tones and cool, pinkish undertones.
- Natural 21: A neutral shade suitable for fair skin tones.
- Beige 23: The darkest shade in the collection and is perfect for individuals with warm-toned complexions!

rom&nd x Sanrio Better Than Eye Palette
The rom&nd x Sanrio Collection offers two distinct styles, each represented by iconic characters: sassy, smoky shades embodying the spirit of Kuromi, and gentle pastels inspired by My Melody.
This collection maintain the same signature 10 complementary shades which rom&nd’s iconic eye palettes are known for, granting you the freedom to create any eye look you desire.
Kuromi’s palette showcases an adorable skull and Kuromi icon, with shades leaning towards the cool and mauve-y side, perfectly capturing Kuromi’s adorably rebellious charm.
This palette is ideal for achieving the popular soft smokey eye makeup look currently trending in Korea, as seen on beloved K-pop stars like Jang Won Young from IVE and Kim Ji Soo from Black Pink.
On the other hand, My Melody’s palette features a pair of heart-shaped cherries and a My Melody icon. The shades lean towards warm, lovely peachy pink tones, reflecting My Melody’s sweet and girly innocence.
If you’re looking for ideas on how to create the perfect eye look with these palettes, look no further than popular K-beauty YouTuber Minsco, who has flawlessly captured the essence of both Kuromi and My Melody with her stunning eye looks using these palettes.

rom&nd x Sanrio Dewyful Water Tint
If we could only bring one makeup item in our bag, it would undoubtedly be a lip tint.
Aside from the adorable prints on the rom&nd x Sanrio Dewyful Water Tint, you can also get a cute Kuromi or My Melody figurine as a bonus when you spend more than KRW30,000 (S$31.11) to place on top of your lip tint.
It’s evident from this that rom&nd truly understands their target audience, as we believe that all Sanrio fans are collectors at heart and these figurines will definitely ignite their excitement. The rom&nd x Sanrio Dewyful Water lip tints are available in four highly wearable shades:
- No.13 Custard Mauve: This pink mauve-y shade is a best-seller from rom&nd and is always recommended as a cool-toned option that suits everyone.

rom&nd x Sanrio Glasting Water Gloss in #Meteor Track
We’re not exaggerating when we say that rom&nd reigns as the powerhouse of lip products in Korea. The Glasting Water Gloss is yet another top-seller from their remarkable lineup, constantly ranking top five on Olive Young due to its ability to deliver the juiciest pouts.
What adds an extra dose of cuteness is the inclusion of glitters inside the gloss, reminiscent of the nostalgic Y2K era. You can apply it directly onto your lips or layer it over your favourite lip product for an enhanced shine.
While the Glasting Water Gloss is available only in Kuromi’s version, we did come across a My Melody gloss in their limited edition set, offering a special treat for collectors and My Melody fans.

rom&nd x Sanrio Whatever Girls Edition
Just like previous rom&nd special collaborations, they are treating us with a limited edition set that comes in the most adorable packaging resembling an old school Game Boy, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to get our hands on it!
Introducing the rom&nd x Sanrio Whatever Girls Edition, which includes two mini glosses which serves as the perfect lip toppers. Each gloss carries a slight tint based on the designated colours of the characters—purple for Kuromi and a pinkish coral shade for My Melody.
The true star of the show, however, is the Sun Cushion. Not only does it provide effective protection against harmful UV rays, but the iconic Kuromi skull imprinted on it also boasts a slight purple tint to help even out sallow and dull skin for a radiant boost.
Just as purple setting powders have been trending in Korea for that coveted translucent skin appearance, we’re expecting this two-in-one Sun Cushion to sell like hotcakes too.
rom&nd x Sanrio Whatever Girls Edition retails for KRW23,900 (~RM85.74) and is currently only available on rom&nd Korean store. You can ship it to Malaysia via a parcel forwarder service like Buyandship.
