In reference to my previous post on the Top 11 Tips and Tricks for Tweezing Eyebrows.
I need some tools for tweezing my brow hair, and the most important tool is the tweezer. I currently own two tweezers. One of them is from Daiso and the other is Tweezerman.
I prefer to use the straight-cut, nondescript, silver tweezers sold in Daiso for two dollars rather than the slant-cut, fancy, pastel green Tweezerman sold in Sephora for about twenty dollars.
The pair of Daiso tweezers costs a fraction of the price of Tweezerman!
My reasons are as follows:
1. The pair of Daiso tweezers is wider where it pinches the brow hair than Tweezerman, allowing the former to grab the brow hair more quickly.
2. The straight-cut of the pair of Daiso tweezers allows me to pinch the hair on my left eyebrow more efficiently than when I use the slant-cut Tweezerman. My right wrist can twist to the left lesser when using a straight-cut pair of tweezers than when using a slant-cut one.
Practicality aside, the pair of tweezers from Daiso appeals less aesthetically than Tweezerman. The former is not coloured and is embossed with “stainless steel Japan” on one side whereas the latter is almost fully painted and stencilled with “Tweezerman” on both sides. The former also does not have a case and a “keeper” while the latter comes in a clear transparent tube and a bit of plastic to “keep” the pinching ends closed.
The pair of Daiso tweezers is a much better option for me than the Tweezerman since the pair of Daiso tweezers performs the same task better at a fraction the price of Tweezerman.
I now keep the Tweezerman as a backup.
Do you use a Tweezerman to pluck your brow hair or do you use a regular pair of tweezers from a beauty supplies store?
