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.
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.
Precise Nail Polish Remover Helper
I use these specifically with nail polish remover to remove excess nail polish around my fingernails and toenails. Works perfectly, lol. 10/10 for that beauty aspect.
Definitely would never use these applicators on my eyes though for applying makeup. Hard NO.
Would buy again
I have been using these for a long time and highly recommend them. The cotton tips are wrapped tightly, so they do not come apart while using.
these are a great clean up tool.
NO, A THOUSAND TIMES NO!!!! WARNING, LADIES:
The pointy end is EXTREMELY SHARP!! AVOID, AVOID, A V O I D !!!!
ULTA, PULL THESE FROM THE MARKET !!!!!!!!!!!!
WHERE ARE YOUR ETHICS???
