Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Tweezers!

my answer: I don’t like when they dull really quickly! I love a great slanted edge with a slight point that isn’t too sharp but is still enough to grab even the tiniest hairs.

    I have one great pair (no brand on it so I can’t buy a new one), one other decent, and the rest are crap. I cannot for the life of me find another like my favorite. I lost it once for a month and I was miserable.

  2. Hate it when they get dull too! I have really nice pair of tweezers now though. You can’t just buy them. My esthetician sold it to me, it’s the one she uses on clients.

  3. My favorite tweezers are the pink, slanted Tweezerman ones, they were a little pricey but so worth it. I think tweezers have to be sharp, but not too sharp that they clip the hair..that is a huge pet peeve of mine, then you can’t pull the hair because it got clipped too short.

  4. I love that they’re perfect for applying falsies with precision. I hate that they collect glue so easily though.

  5. I used to be terrified of tweezers until I discovered Tweezerman a few years back. But that being said, I still don’t tweeze often; I prefer to have my eyebrows waxed.

    I have so much trouble finding ones that work for me. When I tried Tweezerman, they were so sharp they sliced off the hair instead of plucking it. I seem to have better luck with cheap ones from the drugstore, I like when there’s an open container of them so I can test them before I buy. Even then, they might only really grab on one end or the other, never conistently across the entire length.

    I do not like when they are too “springy” I have dropped countless pairs that “boing” back with too much force and then end up dulling due to hitting the floor. I like @GenM have a no name brand that is amazing that I will never be able to replace. I need to find another pair soon.

  8. Do fancy tweezers really make that big of a difference? I’ve been using my $1 pair that was in a jug by the checkout counter at Walgreens for something like 10 years now. What is the advantage of having proper, sharp tweezers?

    (I mean that as a serious question, btw, not a judgement)

    • I wouldn’t say fancy tweezers necessarily make a difference, but a sharper edge helps grab onto even the finest hairs for me. I notice that it’s harder to latch onto each and every hair as tweezers dull.

  9. I hate it when they’re not fine enough to grab the shortest and finest hairs (or too dull, indeed). It gets so frustrating! I do love the Dior ones I have though (got them randomly in a GWP or something, I believe, I’d never just buy Dior tweezers for the sake of it, LOL!)

    Rave: Tweezerman–the ultra pointy,possibly lethal to carry while running, tweezers– no other will do. Love them!

    Rant: don’t drop them! Ugh.. I’ve seriously damaged a few pairs.

    After years and years of using normal drugstore brands (some were ok and some were ‚Ķmeh!) i thought I’d give the tweezermans a try. Well, by jiminy, they are good. My brows are a breeze to pluck now. Definetly worth the extra money.
    The downside if you can call it that, is you have to be very careful not to drop them in case they go out of alignment.

    I have a lot better luck with $1-3 cheapo pairs. It’s downright bizarre, the pricier ones never seem to close with enough of an angle to continue to grip the hair as I pull on it. My brows have pretty thick hair, so I need to be able to hold onto them tight! Super sharp ones slice the hair too often, instead. :(

    Hey Christine, just wondering, if slice is still your preferred tweezers. I have tweezerman ones and was thinking of getting another good set of tweezers for back-up and was considering anastasia.
