Additionally, there are many beauty uses for Q-tips® Precision Tips® you might not be aware of – from using them to apply shimmer powder to the apple of the cheeks to helping maximize the life of your lipstick – the uses are endless.

Designed with pointed tips at both ends, they are the perfect addition to your beauty tool kit. Whether you want to apply eye shadow with true precision or are looking to perfect your manicure, once you use Q-tips® Precision Tips®, you will never look back.

Additionally, Q-tips® Precision Tips® recently won TotalBeauty.com’s Editor Pick for “Best Beauty Tool” and were also named “Best Personal Care Item” in Star Magazine’s Beauty Awards. – Press Release

There are two exceptional ways you can use these for that I want to mention from my personal use. First, I pay a dark eyeshadow over my eyeliner to set it in place. The precision tips here help me follow the line and keep it tidy, as well as getting super close to the lash line and in the corner of my eye (and it’s great for when I do winged eyeliner.) Amazing. And my second tip is that I have a couple fans in my house that I use all the time, and sometimes dusting them is tough. I get really into it, and getting in those crevices can be hard. Ergo, these Q-tips Precision Tips definitely help me with that.

A press release suggested a bunch of ways, and I took out the ones I thought were silly. Then I added some others! What we have left are a bunch of creative ways you might not have thought of.
