From Tweezer Boy To Tweezerman

From Tweezer Boy To Tweezerman

When, oh WHEN, will I stop talking about eyebrows, you ask? NEVER! This time, I'm talkin' 'bout tweezing. Specifically, how I needed to borrow some tweezers on a recent trip, and when I used them I said, "Holy crap, my tweezers are garbage." The magic tweezers were Tweeezerman, which I knew were the Holy Grail of tweezers, but they're also $23, which isn't cheap. Before I'd actually used a pair of Tweezermans, I thought $23 was downright ridiculous for tweezers. If you're not using them for surgery, you can get Target brand and just deal with it. That's what I did. Then I had to go and use Tweezerman and see the light. They're worth it. Damn it.

After the Great Tweezerman Awakening I realized that even if I didn't bite the bullet and buy Tweezerman tweezers, I did need a new pair regardless, so of to Target I went. I was looking at all the options before me, and I noticed that Tweezerman makes a travel size for just about half the price of the regular size. DONE. DEAL.

They're literally the same tweezers, just with a shorter handle and a smaller price tag. They're super sharp and can grab even my so-blonde-they're-practically-invisible hairs with almost no effort. I used to see hairs growing in outside of my approved brow area and would have to wait until they were long enough for my garbage tweezers to be able to nab them without taking a pound of flesh along for the ride. Now, the second an offending stray pops up, BAM! Me and Tweezerman are on the case.

Also, I realized after congratulating myself on being a financial genius for buying travel sized tweezers that Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup totally recommended this first. I'm sure I was channeling her in the Target aisle but decided I needed a confidence boost and gave myself full genius credit in moment. But then I came back to Earth and thought, "These itsy-bitsy tweezers are familiar for a reason, you idea thief." So, credit where credit's due.
