So, have you seen the trend? We've been switching up packaging recently from pots to wands! Why you might ask? I've been so excited for this change and here's why:

1. Easy Application: Wands make for easier application. Some people don't like to use their fingers to apply makeup and that's ok! Now you don't have. Our wands have doe foot applicators that make it super easy to apply product and then use a brush. Quick and no mess!

2. Keeps Your Dirty Hands Out: Those filthy barn hands don't belong in your products! I found myself constantly reaching for my Chapless Lip Balm while in the barn, but I didn't want to keep sticking my dirty hands into the pot. The wand makes it so you can reapply as much as you want or need without compromising your makeup with your dirty hands.

3. No More Drying Out: When it comes to cream products, it's important that they remain creamy. When you open a pot (or jar) of makeup, the exposure to air will start to dry it out and over time it will (which also means it's time to throw it away and replace it). Our wands will help keep the makeup fresher for longer!

4. Overall Sanitation: Do you know that germs can build up in your makeup? Just opening products puts them at risk for contamination, and even if your fingers are clean, there’s always a level of risk when you dip them into a product. So, we're working to help reduce all of those risks by introducing wands.

So, how should you apply with your wands?

Great question! When it comes to Chapless, since you use the applicator straight on your lips, it's best not to share it with others. To apply our Tints, after you wash your hands, I suggest applying some product to the back of your hand. This is a great way to warm up the product for the most natural application. Then, use a brush or your fingers to apply it to your cheeks, lips or eyes. You can do the same process for our Concealer, or if you prefer to apply products directly with the applicator, but sure you're applying to clean skin and don't share the products with others.

Be sure to wash your brushes and sponges at least every week, but if you have sensitive, acne-prone skin like me, you'll want to wash even more often. After I apply my makeup, I use my face wash to clean my brushes off and leave them to dry over night.

P.S. If you want to sanitize your products, you can use a mixture of rubbing alcohol and water and spritz your products directly.
