Product Description

Specially designed for makeup touch-ups and cleaning tight spaces, Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs are a must have at home! Made with pointed tips at both ends, Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs are ideal for touching up eye liner, precisely applying concealer and perfecting manicures like a pro. 100 percent pure cotton. Sleeve & Tray packaging keeps cotton swabs protected from the environment and gives you a clean swab every time. Q-tips® cotton swabs are biodegradable when composted and packaging is recyclable. Tips Using Q-tips® Precision Tips™: The Ultimate Smokey Eye Look. To achieve a quick smokey eye, draw a thick line close to your lash line using your eyeliner and smudge upwards with a Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swab to create a “smokey” effect. Dab Three Dots to Hide Under Eye Circles. Hide under eye circles by using a Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swab to dab on three dots of concealer. Use the other end to blend for a seamless finish. Apply Fake Lashes. Use Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs to help apply fake lashes! Start by applying a dab of lash adhesive to the tip. Keep the tip close to the lash line and use it to guide the application of the faux lash strip. Mask a Blemish. To quickly hide a blemish, simply moisten one end of your Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swab with an astringent that contains salicylic acid and lightly dab onto the blemish.  Use the other end as a makeup applicator to apply an oil-free concealer to mask the blemish. Remove Puffiness and Soothe Skin. Help remove puffiness under the eyes with Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs. Place a small bag of Q-tips ® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs in the freezer that have been dampened with water.  Once chilled, roll under the eyes to alleviate any puffiness and soothe swollen skin. Precision Powdering. Rather than applying powder on the entire face, use your Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs to dab loose powder only where you need it – for example, the center of the forehead, the sides of the nose and the chin. Keep Your Perfect Pout in Place. Keep lip color from bleeding by using Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs to apply loose translucent powder along the outer edge of the lips. The At-Home Manicure. Give yourself an at-home manicure and pedicure with Q-tips® cotton swabs or Q-tips® Precision Tips™ cotton swabs by lightly moistening the end with nail polish remover to instantly erase nail polish from your cuticles. see more...

I love original q-tips & they will always be a must in my bathroom and make up stash. But I always needed some way to get small creases and areas cleaned up & when these were created that's exactly what they had in mind!

I've used these all my life! From when I was a small child until now. I use these repeatedly every single day! Pros: Clean ears well! Cons: They bend easy... I actually bought these at Walmart, but you can find them everywhere. Very satisfied! WOULD recommend.

Great for cleaning ears! You could also sharpen up your eyeliner with these by simply applying eye makeup remover on the end and then wiping it past the liner where you want a sharp line!

I use these Q-tips for everything. Such as smudging and blending eye makeup. Dabbing liquid foundation all over my face before blending. They are percise and inexpensive. They are extremely sturdy. Most brands are very easy to bend but this brand is awesome!

If these aren't meant to go in your ears why are they built that way? They are great for hard to reach cleaning areas, and the fact that you get so many for so little is a bargain! I love q tips. They're very useful

I really like these precision tip Qtips for removing nail polish around my nails. I paint my nails every week but I'm no professional so that's why I got these next to me the tips are so small it removes the unwanted nail polish from my skin. I highly recommend these.

Is the pointed end hard and compact or is it fluffy cotton? Right now I just remove access cotton off of a regular qtip to remove nail polish.
