I was sent their Satin Etched Zebra Slants, Pointed Slant, Point Tweezer, Mini Slant, Slant, and the Brow Shaping Scissors and Brush (which is really a spoolie).
From top to bottom: Satin Etched Zebra Slant, Pointed Slant, Point Tweezer, Mini Slant Tweezer, Slant Tweezer, and Brow Shaping Scissors and Brush
These tweezers are sharp and very precisely honed, each doing a fantastic job at gripping and tweezing my eyebrow hairs (even the fine ones) without breaking off the hairs midway during the process. I might have gone a little too indepth in my review but anytime I can utilize a protractor for blogging, I'm a pretty happy person.
Price: $15.00 for the Mini Slant Tweezer, $18.00 for the Brow Shaping Scissors and Brush, $22.00 for the Pointed Slant and Slant Tweezer, $25.00 for the Satin Etched Zebra Slant and Pointed Slant Tweezer.
Packaging: Each tweezer comes in a plastic box with a plastic stopper cap on the tips (to protect not only the tweezer tips but also yourself). The Brow Shaping Scissors and Brush only came in a plastic box. I do wish there was a plastic stopper cap to put on the scissors the way there's one for the tweezers as the scissors are quite sharp. I also wish there was a better way to store the scissors and brush together so they won't be lost.
Where to purchase: Product availability depends on the store but the main places are Tweezerman.com, Ulta.com, Sephora.com and stores like Target, CVS, etc. I'll note which products are specific to certain vendors.
Cruelty Free? I do believe they are a cruelty free company.
I'll talk about each tweezer individually and my thoughts on their use.
Slant Tweezer (Stainless Steel)
Slant Tweezer (Stainless Steel): The good ol' standby tweezer. With an angle of 50 degrees (and yes I did use a protractor) and super sharp tips, these are pretty much your starter tweezers. It's a no fuss no frills tweezer. Easy to grip and good for thicker hairs but not for the fine ones.
Mini Slant Tweezer (Stainless Steel with Enamel Color Finish)
Mini Slant Tweezer (Stainless Steel with Enamel Color Finish): The Slant Tweezer and Mini Slant Tweezer both have the same 50 degree tip angle. I've gone back and forth about whether I like the enamel color finish and I do think I prefer the enamel color finish. The overall smoothness of the finish appeals to me. I couldn't discern a difference in performance between this and the original Slant Tweezer, the only differences are truly the price and size. If you are on a budget but still want a Tweezerman tweezer, try this out over the Slant Tweezer since it's $7.00 less.
Point Tweezer (Stainless Steel): For precision work, I don't think you can beat the point tweezer. This was my favorite tweezer for the stubborn fine hairs around my eyebrow -the ones I normally tackle with threading- and worked fantastically for the thicker eyebrow hairs. When I want to do daily touch ups on my brow, this is the one I reach for. I've been using this one the most and I can say the one that is my absolute favorite.
Satin Etched Zebra Slant Tweezer:
Satin Etched Zebra Slant Tweezer (Stainless Steel):
Available exclusively at Sephora stores and online.
The angle of this is slightly straighter than the regular slant tweezer with a tip angle of 70 degrees and personally I think the near straight angle isn't as nice as the more slanted tweezers. This is still a nice tweezer, I just don't prefer the angle of the tip and I feel like the tips are a little too wide. I did like the finish of the tweezer where the satin etched part helped me grip the tweezer better but I don't necessarily think it's worth the extra $3.00 in price.
Pointed Slant (Stainless Steel):
Available in Sephora stores and online at Tweezerman.com and Sephora.com
When I was testing all the tweezers, this originally was the frontrunner for being my favorite. The tips of the tweezer are much more slender than the other tweezers. I had loved that the angle of the tip is quite shallow, about 30 degrees which meant I could hold it at a more comfortable grip. The 20 degrees improvement over the regular Slant Tweezer makes a big difference because with this shallow angle and the sloping curve before the tip, I can rest it in between my thumb and index finger.
I kept testing it though and I found that in order to get the entire length of the tip to touch fully, I had to press quite hard because of the way the tweezers curve before the tip. With the rest of the tweezers, I could just squeeze gently and the entire length of the tip would come together but the pointed slant requires me to press much harder. I included a picture so maybe you can see what I'm saying. You see how while the top of the tip touches, the rest doesn't?
This is more expensive than the regular slant tweezers at $25.00 but it requires more effort to use so I'd much rather stick to the original Slant Tweezers. The original Slant doesn't have quite as slender of a tip but it is sharp and very precise.
So what do I recommend when it comes to the tweezers? If you're on a budget, try out the Mini Slant Tweezer. If I had to pick my favorite, it was the Point Tweezer which works great on both the fine and thicker hairs. The Satin Etched Zebra Tweezer isn't bad but I don't like the angle of the tip and I felt disappointed in the extra effort I'd have to put into the Pointed Slant because I do worry that my fingers might get sore.
PS. Oh and I almost forgot to mention, if you're curious about keeping the sharp edge, Tweezerman also do free lifetime sharpening. You just ship your tweezer to them with the form available online (you pay to send it to them, they pay for return shipping) and you'll get newly sharpened tweezers in a few weeks.
I tried to look around to guesstimate how long it would take for them to dull but there didn't seem to be a hard and fast time frame. I'd say that when it starts being difficult to use, send them to get sharpened! Also, it seems like people like to own two tweezers so they have one to use if they have to send the other one for tweezing. If you're pretty fastidious about your tweezing, that's a viable option.
