Remember this little swivel stick? Every brown girl has one. Here are five uses for this little wonder that’s currently featured in the 2013 July curlBOX!
- LIPGLOSS: This is a no-brainer. Ditch the other glosses and use this to nourish your pout.
- UNDEREYE CREAM: After exfoliating and moisturizing, swipe some grease under your eyes to help combat dark circles.
- SCAR BUTTER: Apply directly to annoying scars.
- NATURAL EYESHADOW: Sounds weird, but on a natural day, free of makeup, a swipe of Vaseline or cocoa butter on your eyelids gives the illusion of shadow. It actually highlights your eyes.
- CUTICLE BUTTER: Use a little to smooth onto your cuticles to keep them from getting rough.

Have you heard of Ja’Maal Buster, the lash guru? He’s the master behind the lashes of Rihanna, Beyonce and more. If you’re looking for a unique lash, try Disturbia, the mod-inspired lash above. It’s retro, vintage and looks super cute with a bold eye. Here’s how Ja’Maal says you should take care of his lashes.
“You can get at least two or three wears out of the eyelash strips if you remove them properly. I advise that you take them off every night and reapply in the morning. Cleanse them and remove the excess glue. You can use a regular facial cleanser or baby shampoo.”
