The variety of beauty products out there in the market right now are astounding— from your must-have essentials to reinvented favourites (metallic lipsticks, anyone?) to the wackiest of inventions that have you scratching your head and going, “Huh?”
Surprisingly enough, though, some of these products actually go right past wacky and into genius territory instead, with how truly useful they’ve proven themselves to be.
Don’t believe us? Let us at Daily Vanity prove you wrong. Here is a list of 10 of our favourite weird beauty products that have earned a solid spot on our vanities.
1. Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel
We don’t know about you, but years of uncomfortable heels and too tight flats have left our feet callused and a little worse for wear. This foot peel, thankfully, promises to deliver on baby soft feet that will make you feel as if you’re walking on clouds.
It’s simple enough to use: slide on the two plastic booties that come in the pack, leave them on for a hour, then watch the magic happen! Over the next few days, your feet will begin to shed dead skin before revealing smooth, baby soft skin as you had before. Don’t forget to take before and after shots for the ‘gram!
The Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel is available on Amazon and retails for SGD20.98.
2. Shezi Eyebrow Stamp
Never fret about getting perfectly matching brows again with this nifty little invention.
The Shezi Eyebrow Stamp helps you get picture perfect brows with just these simple steps: just dip the stencil into a brow powder, press it up against your brow evenly for a few seconds, and voila! Well-defined brows that frame your face perfectly.
The product even comes in three varying shades to choose from so you can match your eyebrows with your hair and skin tone: grey, light brown, and dark brown.
The Shezi Eyebrow Stamp is available on Qoo10 and retails for SGD39.
3. Colour Me Automatic Foundation Applicator Pro Edition
This egg shaped contraption may seem unassuming at first, but you’ll be floored to know that this humble little device is actually a vibrating makeup sponge that gives you a airbrushed and flawless complexion.
Yes, you heard that right: it applies your foundation, BB cream, and even powders in such a way that you’ll look as if you received a professional makeover. Makeup artists swear by it, claiming that it gives a picture-perfect Photoshop finish. Sign us up!

5. Violent Lips Lip Decals
Remember back when temporary tattoos were all the rage? Well, Violent Lips Lip Decals work the same way. You pick a pattern, cut out the stencil, then press it to your lips carefully. Add a splash of water and there you go!
These definitely make a bold statement that are sure to get heads turning your way. Go one step further when it comes to your lipstick game and opt for lip decals, instead.
The Violent Lips Lip Decals are available on the Violent Lips website and retails for SGD13.11.
6. 3D Bomb Curl Brush
While this brush may resemble a medieval mace, rest assured that it is totally harmless and is actually pretty easy to use!
Pull it through your hair gently as you’re blow drying your locks for tousled, windswept curls with a incredible amount of volume. The unique 3D design also grips your hair well and prevents tangles, so you don’t have to worry about struggling to free strands of your hair from this contraption.
The 3D Bomb Curl Brush is available on Qoo10 and retails for SGD6.10.
7. Eye Slack Haruka
Have serious dark eye circles that just won’t budge? Instead of opting for yet another eye cream, try out the Eye Slack Haruka instead.
It’s a treatment device that vibrates, warming the skin up slightly to stimulate circulation under your eyes. This forces the blood to move around, thus sweeping away deoxygenated blood cells, which appear bluer under the skin. It even helps to eliminate sagging skin. Say bye bye to panda eyes!
The Eye Slack Haruka is available on Rakuten and retails for SGD124.30.
8. TonyMoly Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch
With our hot and humid climate, dry and cracked lips are more common than not. Pamper yourself by putting on this lip mask by TonyMoly, which contains nourishing and hydrating ingredients that are guaranteed to leave your lips oh-so-smooth and kissable.
It doesn’t hurt that it comes in such a adorable packaging either — place them over your lips and pucker up for a selfie!
The TonyMoly Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch is available at iHerb and retails for SGD3.31 each.
9. Refa Carat Massager
Upon first glance, the Refa Carat Massager looks more like something that should be used to roll lint off your clothes, but this micro-current lymphatic massager is meant to be used on your face instead.
You heard that right: this device actually utilizes micro-current technology to enhance your skin’s natural repair system, increase collagen production, and firm up your skin’s elasticity. Guess this means we can afford to give our facial appointments a miss!
10. Lazy Corner Makeup Brush Cleaning Tool
Now, we’re serious advocates for washing your brushes and sponges daily, but most of us simply don’t have the time to do that. Now, at least there’s this baby to help us in between washes!
The Lazy Corner Makeup Brush Cleaning Tool is basically a sponge that effectively cleans and removes powders clinging on to your brush. That’s right: it means you can instantly swap from one palette to the next using the exact same brush with this product!
Simply rub your brush on the pad to get it clean, and wash the sponge whenever you feel it’s getting a little too dirty. We’re sold!
The Lazy Corner Makeup Brush Cleaning Tool is available on YesStyle and retails for SGD4.93 each.
