Eyeliner and mascara fans are unfortunately familiar with “raccoon eyes.” Black smears of eyeliner and mascara can ruin a beauty look, turning a smoky eye into a smudged mess. Often, using a simple Q-tip is the way to go — but there’s a genius invention takes things a step further.
Alleyoop’s Tip Off cotton swabs are the on-the-go solution to smudged eyeliner and runny mascara, housing makeup remover inside of the Q-tips. This is truly the game-changing makeup product you didn’t know you needed.
To use the Tip Off cotton swabs, simply snap the swab along the blue line on one cotton bud. The makeup remover inside the swab’s stick drains into the opposite side, resulting in a makeup remover-filled end. Simply use the cotton bud to clean up any stray makeup, and you are set. I even find the other end is still usable after “snapping,” and I often use it to wipe up any stray makeup remover.
