Wow... I never thought I would be EXCITED TO TWEEZE something!! I lost my makeup bag and bought these at CVS to tide me over till I find it and, wow, I was surprisingly impressed with these little guys - they get everything! If I lose these I am totally buying another without even looking at any other pair.
Tweeze very well, but my only complaint is the price :( but I did get the mini travel one, so it wasn't as expensive as the big ones. More compact and convenient as well.
I have wasted money over the years buying so/so tweezers thinking tweezerman was just too expensive. It is expensive but WORTH every scent. I got my pepto pink with rhinestone embellishment slant tweezers off of sephora in january of 09 and have used them almost daily since. they are so precise that you dont have to keep messing with the same hair trying to grasp it. this does it in one swoop. makes tweezing life a thousand times easier and quicker and no frustration. because they are so precise i am better able to shape my brows. i am so impressed with them that i went to walgreens a couple months later and bought the baby blue pointed tweezermans. these are so worth the pricetag. everyone should get a pair. :)
I had a pair of the mini slant tweezers for a couple years and LOVED them. I took them on a trip on the weekend, and not thinking just tossed them in my makeup bag. They ended up getting banged up beyond usability, and wound up buying a new set. I could've sent them back to the company to get fixed, but I couldn't wait that long! These get every hair, including ones you didn't know you had. Like another reviewer I have hands on the small side, so I find the mini size perfect for every day. They are expensive, but they are definitely worth the price. I will not use another tweezer.
It took me a long while to justify the price for these but I'm so glad I bought them. This is one of HG items. There's a substantial difference in performance compared to the cheap tweezers. They are shaped so well that picking up hairs is so much easier and quicker. I mainly use these for facial hair.
I bought these tweezers and the pointed ones together in a set. They were packaged well in a clear plastic case with a leather case which is perfect to carry in your makeup purse.
Another advantage is that Tweezerman offer a free sharpening lifetime guarantee. I can't comment on this service because I haven't used it yet.
AWESOME! i love them. i never realized how much my other tweezers suck until i recently bought this pair! they get every single hair, each and every time. i got the mini travel size, for $12.50... so they weren't as expensive. if you have small hands, just buy the travel size, save some money, same quality. :)
Excellent product! EXPENSIVE, but excellent. Makes tweezing a breeze!
I just love these! It's surprising that there's so much variation in tweezer quality, but these are so much better than anything else I've used. They really do get every hair, and haven't become dull in the four years I've had them. I also like all of the cute designs they have; a minor thing but it makes the tweezing ritual a little more fun.
Absolutely fabulous for plucking your eyebrows! Super sharp and precise. Never causes you to accidently rip out hairs. Definitely recommend.
I have such bushy man brows that for years I used a razor instead of tweezing. There are so many rave reviews of Tweezerman on MUA that I thought I'd give it a try, despite the price.
I'm glad I did.
I started with the slant tweezers, but I now prefer the point because of their ability to pick up the most microscopic hairs, visible only in my 15X magnifying mirror. I'd tried using other, cheaper tweezers before (most notably from Revlon) and there's just no comparison. The other brands are a joke!
For first-time tweezer users, I'd recommend using a magnifying mirror, preferably one that stands up on its own. Pick a location with strong light, preferably in daylight near a window. Grip the hair with the tweezer points close to the root. With your other hand, place a finger flat on the skin near the hair to keep the skin from getting "pulled." It's also less painful this way. With a firm grip, yank the hair--fast--in the direction of its growth. Repeat as needed. Go slowly and do occasional mirror checks (or even better, use a web cam) to make sure your brows remain even. Be careful not to over-tweeze--this product works well and its easy to get overly enthusiastic if you're not careful! If you have a lot to tweeze (as I do) you may want to apply a drop of moisturizer to your skin afterwards.
Tweezerman also offers free sharpening (you pay for postage).
