Last Q-tips Tipster Post + Giveaway! Sephora gift card. (3 winners!)

Welp, it’s my very last Q-tips video and giveaway. Can y’all believe it’s been almost a year since I was selected to be a Q-tips ambassador? I have been spreading the gospel about the awesomeness that are these cotton-y stick thingies and just because my term is ending doesn’t mean I’ll stop braggin’ about them.

This video showcases 5 ways I like to use Q-tips while traveling. I’ve been working on limiting what I pack with me and whaddya know…you can actually save space by leaving some of your makeup brushes behind and just packing some Q-tips. The video is a bit jumbled up but what can I say? I’m so rusty. I don’t think I’ve done 5 videos this whole year. Meanwhile, years ago, I’d do 1 video a week. Ack!!

Let’s jump to the good giveaway stuffs. You know the deal! Give the good ole’ Rafflecopter some time to load.

Good luuuuuck!
