Are Weird Beauty Tools Worth It? Bustle Editors Investigate — VIDEO
Any makeup lover knows that there are some definite essentials to have in your cosmetics bag. But there's also a wide variety of weird beauty tools out there. They may not be essential, but some are pretty cool — if you can figure out how to use them, that is. A few Bustle editors took on the challenge of testing out a selection of these high-tech tools whose intended use isn't necessarily obvious at first glance.
First up is a microcurrent skin tightener, which may or not give you an electric shock (who knows, maybe that actually helps prevent wrinkles). Or perhaps you can swap out your tried-and-true sugar scrub for a mechanical lip exfoliator, which, as one person remarks in the video, looks like a dentist's tool and vibrates away the rough skin on your lips. And then there's a fancy electric toothbrush, which, well, doesn't actually have any bristles.
And OK, let's face it — like the majority of the Bustle editors in this video thought, the cosmetic spatula (which is actually for scooping up makeup products) definitely could be a very small whip. Tools like the eyebrow compass and the brush cleaner — both of which actually look like what they are — seem a lot easier to incorporate into your beauty routine.
The final verdict? Some of these weird beauty tools are definitely cool. If you're feeling curious to try them yourself, here's where you can buy every single one:
