Every once in a while, I get my eyebrows professionally threaded. But for the most part, I tweeze. Because I’m lazy, and also anxiety-prone and ripping out eyebrow hairs feels somehow calming. But most tweezers? Totally ineffectual. It’s so hard to see the hairs! But not anymore. Revlon finally put two and two together and realized that to adequately tweeze you’ve got to be able to see the effing hairs. So they created the Revlon Spotlight Tweezer With LED Technology, and added a small LED light to their latest tweezers, and holy crap, what an improvement. You can actually see the hairs — even the little ones that are super wispy and easy to miss. Better tweezing through science! [$10.99, Drugstore.com]
Tweezing is way too painful to be glamorous or pampering. But if you add a little Betsey Johnson to the experience, you can at least feel fabulous while you pluck. Betsey has teamed up with Tweezerman to create the Betsey Johnson Slant Tweezer Collection. Choose from three options: black with a “Marilyn” face, neon pink with white skulls, or white with pink rosebuds. Today is the day to start plucking in style.
Keep your eyebrows neat and you’ll always look like you have it together, whether you’re in full makeup or didn’t even bother putting on concealer. But unlike lipsticks, mascaras, and eye shadows, tweezers don’t change from season to season, and buying a new pair generally isn’t very exciting. These special edition polka dot-covered tweezers, however, will add some spunk to your hair removal routine. And since this pair is pocket-sized, there’s no excuse for stray hairs, even when you’re on vacation.
We can’t think of anyone who actually enjoys plucking her brows, so make the tedious task just a tad bit more enjoyable with these semi-personalized beauty tools. Patina tweezers come in five different versions of a fashionable woman: a blonde with a pink headband; a lady with a black bob wearing sunglasses, a red top and jeans; a redhead with a hat and green top; a black-haired gal with a flower cap and boho outfit; and a Parisian-styled brunette with a blue dress and white scarf around her neck. All of the designs are quite adorable in kind of a cheesy, funny way. [$3.95, Patina] Keep reading »
