Q-tips® Precision Tips™

I received two sample packs of Precicsion Q-tips in my Something Blue Voxbox from Influenster. 

I love these Q-tips.  I use them all the time for cleaning up my manicures.  I change my polish several times a week so I get a ton of use out of these.  They also came in travel sized boxes so I can take them everywhere.  I love that!  They are perfect for cleaning up around the cuticle area if you happen to make a mess while polishing.  I recommend using pure acetone for cleanup and cleaning up after each coat of polish. 

The precision Q-tips are also perfect for cleaning stamping plates.  Here is a picture of some nail art I
did using a stamping plate.  The starbursts were really hard to clean with a cotton ball, so I pulled out my precision Q-tips and they really were able to clean up the plate so I could continue stamping and get clean lines.  I cleaned up my manicure with the Precision Q-Tips as I went.

 
 
When I'm getting ready for a special night out and I wear more make up than usual, I keep my box of Precision Q-tips within arms reach.  I know I'll need them for several types of makeup.

Other uses for Precision Q-tips are cleaning up mascara mistakes, which is something I use them for as well.  They do a great job getting under the lash without smudging your mascara.  They are perfect with the pointy tip for grabbing any clumps or separating lashes that may have stuck together during application.. 

You can also use them as an eyeshadow applicator, they are perfect for the crease, while you can use these or regular Q-tips for the rest of the lid.  I can never find my eyeshadow brushes, but I've always got Q-tips handy.

I also like to use the Precision Q-tips to apply concealer where I need it.  I have dark circles under my eyes and the occasional blemish that I want to hide.  The concealer applicator doesn't always apply concealer that well and this way you don't have to worry about putting a dirty applicator back in the tube, you get a clean one each time you use the concealer.  These are perfect for application and blending concealer where you need it.
