Tweezerman- The Ultimate Tools for Taming, Shaping and Maintaining Perfect Eyebrows & Curling Eyelashes Too!

I have been using Tweezerman products as long as I can remember, and can't think of a time when plucking and shaping my brows has been done without their assistance. Their quality is excellent, and Tweezerman products last and last and last. The only time that I have had my Tweezerman tweezers give out on me was at the hands of my husband who found them useful for some type of MacGyveresque top secret mission. He secretly removed them from my stash only to return them all battered up. That particular pair had to be retired to Mr. MacGyver Seicento's surfboard bag, and an invisible and magical force field had to be added around all of my remaining Tweezerman tweezers- just in case he needed more for his next mission.
Truthfully, I have never met a Tweezerman tool that I didn't love. The quality is always top notch, the products last forever, and they do exactly what they are supposed to do, but better than anything else that I have ever tried.
Top to bottom: 1) Satin Etched Zebra Slant Tweezer; 2) Slant Tweezer; 3) Pointed Slant Tweezer; 4) Point Tweezer; and 5) Mini Slant Tweezer with Enamel Polka Dot Color Finish
Satin Etched Zebra Slant Tweezer (Stainless Steel) $25: These are a gorgeous etched version of the Slant Tweezer (description below). Tweezerman only has it listed in their Satin Etched Zebra Eye Kit, but you can find the tweezers alone at Lord and Taylor or, and at various other places online. These along with the regular Slant tweezers are my regular go-to everyday tweezers that I use for plucking strays, and they remove hairs swiftly, effortlessly, and painlessly. My brows are always clean, tame, and well-groomed because of these high efficiency tweezers. These tweezers are real precision tools, and they are so finely crafted that hairs never have the chance to evade them.

Slant Tweezer (Stainless Steel) $22: "A ‘Best of Beauty’ winner chosen by Allure editors for 11 years. Positively the finest general use tweezer in the world - top eyebrow artists always recommend our original, award winning Slant for expert brow shaping.  The perfectly aligned, hand-filed tips are slanted to grab every hair, every time with the smoothest, true precision.  In classic stainless steel or stainless steel with enamel color finishes." I agree with their assessment, and see why Allure editors have chosen these tweezers as a "Best of Beauty" winner for 11 years-- they really are that good.

Pointed Slant Tweezer $25: "Equally ideal for expert brow shaping, general tweezing, and precision work (especially great for grabbing coarse hair and short stubs).  This handy tweezer's tip design combines the easy handling benefits our Slant® with the ultimate precision of our Point®.  The tips are hand-filed and perfectly aligned for expert results.  In classic stainless steel." These bad-boys mean serious business, and no hard to get eyebrow hair is going to escape the grip of this amazingly engineered pair of tweezers. These are perfect when you need a little extra leverage at a bit of an angle, and to grab pesky hairs that aren't quite ready to come out, but are visible enough to make your brows look a little ratty.

Point Tweezer $22: "Finely tapered, precision points are hand-filed and perfectly aligned, making them ideal for stubble, ingrowns, and baby-fine brow and facial hair." These are fantastic for ingrown hairs, and also amazing for removing splinters. I seldom have either, but when I do this pair does the trick. The occasional super fine hairs that I will find in my brows are effortlessly whisked away with the Point Tweezer as well. I would say that it is important to use caution with these-- they are quite sharp and pointed-- so tread lightly.

Mini Slant Tweezer with Enamel Polka Dot Color Finish $15.00: These are great to carry in your handbag, or on weekend getaways-- they even have their very own little plastic tube case keeping them from chpping or getting battered. I love mine!
Clockwise Top to Bottom: 1) Browmousse; 2) Eyenhance Pencil; 3) Brow Shaping Scissors; 4) Shapener; 5) Eyelash/brow Brush; and 6) Folding ILashcomb

Browmousse $10: "Ideal for getting a beautifully shaped brow line to stay put all day… or for taming “disobedient” unruly brows. The superior clear-gel formula smoothly styles and shapes without the flakes or gumminess of lesser quality brands. A favorite of top models and make-up artists for its precision, evenness and long-lasting wear. Fragrance-free." I have found that many brow gels and mousses end up flaking and looking awful shortly after they set and dry, but not so with Tweezerman Browmousse. Once it sets, it doesn't budge or flake-- it just keeps unruly brows well behaved and perfect in every way, and without looking unnatural or shellacked.

EyenhanceBrow Definer and Highlight Duo Pencil and Sharpener $20.00: "The dual-ended pencil features both a universal brow color Brow Pencil and Highlighter that work together to create perfectly shaped luminous brows. The brow pencil has a long-wearing formula, suitable for all skintones and the highligher's velvety smooth texture allows for easy application, and blending. Includes a free sharpener." This product is just pure genius- it's just that simple. I never really bought into the notion of a one size fits all with respect to brow pencils, but oddly enough this one actually works very well on my dark dark dark brown eye brows. I also love the highlighter on the other end which really helps to highlight and accentuate the shape of my eyebrows when used with a light hand below the brows. It's nice that they also include a nice sharpener- so that you don't have to make an additional purchase.

Brow Shaping Scissors and Brush $18: "The custom-contoured body is designed for super-comfortable maneuvering. Outfitted with sharp, ultra-thin precision blades so you can isolate each hair with optimum accuracy and control. Use included mini brush to help shape and define brows as you trim." These are seriously high quality, well balanced precision scissors that have the perfect angle for carefully trimming your brows. It is so nice that they include a nice brush with the scissors because this is a match made in brow heaven.

Folding ILashcomb $9.50: "The perfectly spaced, gold plated metal teeth glide through lashes to remove excess mascara, leaving your lashes looking long, lovely and clump-free. Comb cleverly folds in to protect teeth when not in use." This is the nicest lash comb that I have used, and unlike all of the ones that I have had with plastic teeth-- this one is much stronger and more stable, and will last forever (unless my husband "borrows"it for some of his MacGyveresque shenanigans again).
ProCurl Lash Curler
ProCurl Lash Curler $20.00: "Designed with unique control, this next-generation, professional-quality eyelash curler’s sleek body-shape with large opening is crafted to exceed the standards and performance of any other curler on the market today. Reworked angles create excellent, pinch-proof access to each lash like never before — allowing for effortless use and maximum curl. The narrowed top bar is designed to fit most eye shapes and reach every last lash. Stylish and distinctive in rose gold with black pad. Three replacement pads included." Honestly, it was not long ago when I finally retired my worn out 10 year old Revlon Lash Curler, and I didn't realize how bad it was until I found my beloved Kevyn Aucoin Eyelash Curler. Tweezerman's ProCurl Lash Curler is every bit as good as my Aucoin's. This eyelash curler fits my eye shape perfectly, has ample space to accommodate the shape of your eye and the length of your lashes. Additionally it is constructed with a perfect angle allowing you to get even the tiniest lashes tucked away in the corner of the eye. What's more, there is no pinching or pulling. This is worth every cent.

Overall assessment: Every single item here is of the highest quality, and I cannot recommend each of them highly enough. That said, you do not likely need every single piece that I have shown you if you are just starting out.  However, if you are in need of any of these types of products shown here- I would certainly urge you to take a look at Tweezerman products before purchasing like products from other companies. I did that many many years ago, and have been loyal to Tweezerman ever since. Also if their products are a little out of your price range- remember that places like Bed, Bath & Beyond sell Tweezerman products- so you can always use one of their handy discount coupons.

  1. I've not used Tweezerman stuff before but I have a set of HD Brows tweezers and a brow kit from them which I love!

    1. Hi teacakemake! Thanks for stopping by! Oooooh the HD Brows tweezers sound awesome! I'm a long time fan of Tweezerman products- they are just made so well! :)

  2. I'm kinda curious about that eyelash curler now--but I'm quite happy with my Shiseido one at the moment. I recently got my first Tweezerman tweezers (I had a review for it somewhere but then it kept getting pushed back bc of newer products that I was excited about :P) and I honestly can't believe I didn;t pick up a pair sooner. The difference is night and day!

    1. Hey Becca!! If you are quite happy with your Shiseido eyelash curler-- then you really don't need these. Shiseido's is excellent, and unless yours are on their last curl and need to be replaced there's no point in spending the money. I totally agree- you can totally see the difference with Tweezerman tweezers-- there's no comparison as far as I'm concerned. Some time hack I was given a little tweezer set in a leather pouch- I assume that it was probably pretty expensive-- they were touted to be elite tools from Solingen, Germany-- and they weren't nearly as good as these!! :)

  3. I've been in love with my Tweezerman for as long as I can remember. I usually have 4 or more tweezerman tweezers in my house. I've just discovered the eyelash curler though and that has my love lately. What a wonderful tool that is. Plus I love the color. Great descriptions on all of these!

    1. Me too, Marcia. I honestly cannot remember a time that I didn't have at least 1-2 on hand. I really think that they make the best tweezers on the market. I agree with you about the eyelash curler-- it really is fantastic, and every bit as good as my pair from Kevyn Aucoin! I love the color as well-- it really pops out when I'm digging for it in my stash! I'm so glad that you liked my descriptions-- that means a great deal coming from you!!

  4. Oh man, look at all this. I just can't go to that level of high maintenance with brows. I pluck and trim with my no-name brand equipment and they work just fine. In fact, I'm lucky if I decide to do my brows at all. I miss going to salons for a monthly wax. :(

    1. Well, getting waxed certainly makes doing this at home unnecessary! I actually don't spend that much time on mine on a weekly basis-- mostly just cleaning up strays. About once a month I needed to give them a little more time than that though!!

  5. It show's that you really love longer lashes. Me too. I believe that having a beautiful eyes is the best thing in life. *^_^*
