Beauty tools are just as important as your skincare and makeup products. In fact, they're now considered more as essentials than a luxury. While there are those that sound and feel right — say, electronic face brushes and mask applicators — there are also some that will make your brows raise and your spine tingle.
Being the curious Janes that we are, we decided to look for some eccentric beauty tools and see if they deserve a chance to be a part of your vanity. Learn more about our quirky finds below and who knows? Maybe one (or all) of them will catch your fancy.
Electronic eye and face masks?
If you love eye creams and eye mask sheets, then the Eye Slack Haruka will definitely intrigue you. This electronic under-the-eye stimulator is said to be good at dealing with sagging skin and wrinkles. You also just it for just three minutes daily to get results. However, if face masks are more up your alley, the Maturity Haruka Cheek Muscle Slack Simulator might fit your routine better. This uses the same technology as the electronic eye mask to keep the skin smooth, youthful and glowing.
Looks promising, right? The only question now is: are willing to swap your current sheet faves with these futuristic skincare tech products?
A literal cat-eye tool
One of the remaining beauty mysteries out there is how to create a perfect cat-eye — and that is on top of many YouTube tutorials, a myriad of choices for eye-lining, and daily practice. While your usual cat-eye liner stencils are cool and helpful, one took it to the next level by taking a literal cat — well, cat silhouette — as inspiration.
Making waves on the internet for quite some time now is the Cat Line. This tool uses all the curves of the cat-like stencil not only to serve as a guide to get that perfect wing but to also help you out with your eyeshadow application. Each package comes with two patterns you can use depending on your eye shape and desired output. The only catch though is that it still asks the user to keep a steady hand during the stencilling process, which is already the initial issue we have with winged liners in general. Still, kudos for honesty, right?
