As beauty editors, we consider ourselves pretty hip to the hair, skin and makeup tools out there—but every now and then, we get thrown for a loop. What in the world is a winding key? And how about a butterfly mascara wand? We took it upon ourselves to find out!
Read on to discover the beauty tools you never knew existed (but totally need).
Let’s be honest, perfect eyeliner application is difficult. Or we should say, it used to be difficult. To give us a helping hand, Lancôme launched a wand that bends at a 35-degree angle to allow for precise and easy to apply liquid liner. Hellographic eyeliner!
You’ve seen (and most likely used) a makeup sponge before. But have you seen one with a built-in handle? Probably not. This latex-free and reusable blending sponge features a handle for effortless application every time. You’ll never consider using an ordinary makeup sponge again.
Filling in your brows has never been this foolproof. This all-in-one eyebrow kit comes with everything you need for on-point brows—including a stencil. Now you can fill and define your brows to absolute perfection.
Do you like saving money? How about time? Assuming you said “yes” to all of the above, have you ever considered touching up your roots or grays with a can of spray paint? Spray paint of the hair-coloring variety, of course. This ammonia- and peroxide-free root touch up is the perfect solution between salon visits.
Fact: Adults like lip gloss. Fact: Adults love cocktails. Mix the two together, and what do you get? A cocktail-inspired, pigment infused lip oil you can shake, twist and dab for a shot of color—sans sticky shine. Sorry, there’s no actual margarita included.
Is this the key to a successful and well-traveled life? We wish. But what about the key to soft and smooth skin? Definitely! This Winding Key gets every stubborn last drop out of your hand cream—no waste, no mess, no struggle.
Ladies, it’s not the size of the spoolie, it’s how you use it. This sculpting wand may not look like a traditional spoolie, because it isn’t. With exclusive Sculpting Wing Tip Brush technology, the inner bristles fill in your lashline for a no gap, tightline effect, while the outer bristles fan out your lash corners.
