Love these! If you don't have a Tweezerman tweezer, now's a perfect time to pick one up. I have one of these mini-slant version (shown above, but mine's pink), and they work great. Confession: I keep a mini-slant in my purse to attack those crazy little hairs I only notice in the rearview mirror. Also shown in the picture above are Matchbox Itty Bitty Paw Print Files, which are awesomely portable and marked with the same pawprint pattern found on the tweezers. Tweezers: $15; Files: $4 for a case of 12. Portions of the proceeds ($1 for each tweezer sold, 50 cents for each set of files) will go to The Humane Society of the United States. Available at sephora.com and tweezerman.com.
That's right, you heard me sistah. Tweeze for the environment. I'll explain in a moment...
I may be the only makeup artist in the world who does not own a Tweezerman tweezer. In fact, most have more than one (two for on set, and another for home). I hope to rectify this situation shortly, and plan to start with this great tweezer offering from the legendary company:
This is the Go Green Mini-Slant tweezer, a smaller version of the very popular Slant Tweezer. The Slant Tweezer has won plenty of kudos, including being an InStyle Best Buy and consistently being mentioned in Allure's Editor's Choice Awards. This mini has all of the features of the grown-up sized version: quality craftsmanship, precision plucking, hand-filed tips, free repair/replacement of damaged equipment, free sharpening, and repair of items you may have broken (for a nominal fee).
