Most Helpful Positive Review A Staple in my Beauty Regime
I was standing in line waiting to pay for my merchandise the first time I ever set foot in an Ulta store, and these were hanging by where I was standing in line. I thought they looked really useful, especially since I had just bought a whole lot of new cosmetics, plus they were priced very fairly, so I grabbed them.
The narrow tipped end of these is perfect for wiping up nail polish mistakes and for wiping away mascara or eyeliner mistakes.
The wider end of these is good for applying eyeshadow or concealer. They are not the best for applying eyeshadow just because they aren't the smoothest, but when you are traveling or do not have an applicator that came with your eyeshadow they work good enough.
I think these are very useful.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not great for eyeshadows
I bought these while traveling because I'd forgotten my makeup brushes at home, but I really did not like them for applying eye makeup. They're too stiff and harsh to be used dry, but when used wet they lose their shape easily and waste a lot of product.
What they ARE good for is cleaning up mistakes in eyeliner, mascara, and nail polish application. Both ends work for this; just get it wet/ dip it in nail polish remover and gently swipe the unwanted product away.

I purchased this product because it helps to blend your eyeshadow and then you can toss it. The other use is for correction if you want to define the line.

Perfect for fixing up eye makeup

The design is horrible for one, there are divits right in the center of the one side of the applicator. And the pointy side doesn't grab any eyeshadow, and it's made of cotton, so it's like a q tip. Absolutely awful. Wanted the foam applicators but they always seem to be out at the nearest ulta store. Will not be buying these again.

I love the shape of these, so much more functional than regular cotton swabs.
excited to find these again
Kettisketti from Huntsville, AL
I had used these types of applicators for years, then the place I got them from stopped selling them. I was happy to see them available at Ulta.

It's ok for cleaning up mistakes in eyeliner and mascara, but it feels rough on skin
Love these!! I went in store, NOT IMPRESSED WITH THE STAFF!

The product is great I have no issues with the product the staff sucks in the Warner Robins Department
Sue from Cleveland, OH
I had never seen cotton applicators like this before. They are great precision tools to touch up make up, especially eyebrow, mistakes. The pointy end is awesome. Makes me look like a makeup pro when I'm clearly not.

Great for cleaning up and smudging make-up, especially eye make-up. Gets into tight spaces.
Has a pointed end and a flat end.
So many uses
Allergy Annie from Oklahoma
Use this for makeup application, makeup mistakes clean-up, manicure mistakes clean-up. My best use is because I have bad allergies, I used these to get all the eye goop out. I use the rounded end and start at the inner corner of my eye, pick up the stringy goop and lift up. Then I use the pointed end to do it again and get the remainder. It sounds gross, but it is better than using a finger or a wash cloth. Tissues and q-tips leave fuzzy stuff behind. The cotton is wound so tightly on these applicators that they do not leave any fibers behind. Love them!

I ran out applicators and decided to give these a try. They are cheap and there is a lot of them. They work well for application and I love the one side has a fine point and it is great for little details and lines. If the size of your pallet, it can be hard to fit on small ones.
A MUST have for everyone's make-up bag
Sally Lou from Ann Arbor, MI
Tis is a MUST have on my make-up table. It is PERFECT to wipe away little make-up errors such as a dot of mascara under your eyes or to blend eyeliner. I just love these applicators!!
I do buy this product again and again.
Lacreek from TX
I use the tip to remove tiny errors in eye liner application.

I am old fashioned and don't really like brushes. I am very comfortable to use the applicators.
Nat from AZ
The bag is tiny!
Total rip of just get normal q-tips
I buy theses all the time
Linda D. from Gum Spring, Virginia
I actually use these to clean up mascara mistakes since I am messing putting on mascara. the narrow end it great for using under the bottom lashes without removing the mascara on my lashes. I just wet the tips with either remover or water for the clean up.
I would buy this product again

I feel like it cleans really good

I use this product to clean up the mess I make after putting on mascara.
Yes I would buy these again
Ramona from Hometown,USA
I use these to apply my lipstick. I don't like a heavy feeling lipstick do these are great at applying just the right amount. I have also used them for my eyeshadow. Great product to keep in your makeup bag.
Really like how it's different than regular Q-tips
Lonestar from Texas
Really like the pointy end on one side of the applicator I can actually erase to make a border of the eyeshadow & where I want to apply a new layer for the cut crease
Best cosmetic tool
