This week I'm obsessed with... beauty tools with tips - btw I said TIPS you pervy Googlers!

Beauty tools don't need to be expensive. Sometimes just putting a tip on a normal product can turn it into something I love.

Q-tips Precision Tips - 170 swabs - $4.99 - cotton with a flexible stick these are genius little pointed suckers that can reach anywhere! Perfect for when I'm too lazy to clean the glitter off my eyeliner brush but need to get to a job interview, amazing for cleaning the polish goofs off my skin from when I was trying to prove to my husband that I can indeed paint my nails with my mouth (I can't) and totally great for cleaning eyeshadow off my face without having to take everything off after that "easy" smoky eye turned out to be not so easy!

Available at drug, grocery and mass retailers.
I am still devoted to my foundation brush for foundation but for BB creams I prefer to apply with a sponge and have been looking around at sponge options - I normally use the triangle drugstore jobies but the shape is kind of awkward and I keep meaning to pick up a BeautyBlender sponge but I've never quite gotten around to it so I can't actually compare this one to it but I can say this similar looking:

Avon Precision Grip Teardrop Blender - $6.99 - is amazing! It's really soft, doesn't feel rough or too textured on my skin and the little pointed bit is perfect for getting near my eyes and nose, spots I expect I normally miss. With a brush I always felt like I was having to go over my face a million times to blend and get rid of streaks but with this little baby BB cream goes on quick and effortlessly!

The only negative thing I have to say is that mine smelled weird when I took it out of it's wrapper, I don't know if it was the smell of the plastic it was packaged in or what but once I washed it with a little soap and water it smelled fine - so it's also entirely possible that the smell was all in my head and is the sign of a tumor or something...

Available from your Avon rep - 1-800-265-AVON or online at www.avon.ca.
