I’ve tried some odd, wacky, and plain weird beauty products/tools over the years. Remember my Korean Skincare post? Probably the oddest product review that I’ve publicly discussed and let’s just say there were other products that didn’t make the cut because of how weird they were. It’s hard to believe all the hype when you see weird looking tools and beauty products that “claim” to be the next thing since sliced bread. Why waste your money on something that likely won’t work or you’re not quite sure the hype is what is claims to be. I’ll admit, there are some that are just money wasters and not worth your time. Others you should invest in for the right reasons. I’m breaking down 7 weird beauty products that are worth the hype and worth your dollars.
1. Sigma Beauty Brush Cleaning Glove – I’ve tried the Cleaning Mat before but the glove is changing the way I clean brushes. If not only for the sake of my brushes but to save my hands. Don’t suffer from pruney fingers and super dry hands after your brush washing expedition. You wouldn’t think this glove can clean your brushes but just like the mat it cuts down on the time and saves the brushes hairs in the process.
2. Sephora: Detox It Out Charcoal Swabs – Sure you can use a plain, white Q-tip but they don’t always work wonders. Reading the reviews alone can make you a believer. The swabs help to remove stubborn mascara, eyeliner gone wrong and keep you from having to rub your makeup away just to correct one tiny mistake. The texture and unique look helps to remove those stubborn makeup mistakes that don’t come off so easily with a Q-tip and eye makeup remover.
3. Japonesque Eyelash Curler – I don’t know about you but I’ve always been terrified of eyelash curlers. It took one time to pinch my eye lid and I was done. Lately my lashes have not been wanting to curl on their own with mascara and I’ve needed a bit of help. I was literally fearful of using an eyelash curler and didn’t want to do it. So I did my research and found my way to the Japonesque curler. The compact design makes it easy to hold and use, and is molded in a way to avoid skin pinching. After a few uses I am now a fan. I feel like I’ve been missing out on curled lashes my entire life!
4. MAC Masterclass Brushes – The MAC Masterclass Brushes have been on my radar for a while. I am mesmerized by their shape and ability to apply makeup flawlessly. I could watch tutorial videos for hours on end. When you look at them they are NOT like your typical makeup tool. In fact they are very unique but from watching enough videos they do actually work. You can sculpt, contour, highlight, apply shadow, define your crease, fill in your brows and lips with the 3 brushes. Used with creams or powders, they are quite versatile and could be used by the everyday lady….once you master the learning curve.
5. Lipstick Queen Mood Changing Lipstick – File this product under weird! A mood changing lipstick? Why? But I ask…why not? It transforms to your skins pH to give you the perfect, rosy pink lips that is custom to you. No more fighting for the right lip color that’s best for your skin tone. This mood changing lipstick does it all for you in one easy tube.
6. Rita Hazan Root Concealer Spray – I only have a few gray hairs on top but it’s enough that in between colors I have a slight meltdown on how to hide them. I’ve tried root powders, gels, and other sprays with no luck. On a recent Amazon splurge I found this 1oz trial size and decided to give it a go. It’s waterproof, temporary, and sprays on quite easily. No powdery residue, no flaking or dropping out of your hair throughout the day. It stays put, covers the gray, and looks natural.
7. Tweezerman No Mess Mascara Guard – I suffer, at least daily, with getting mascara all over my face. It’s bound to end up on my eyelids, above my eyebrows or on my cheekbones. This guard helps to prevent that from happening. Use it under your lower lashes or your upper lashes to coat from root to tip, without the mess. Don’t believe me? Check out this tutorial video to see how easy it actually is.
