When I first received the Silver Shimmer Slant tweezers, I was skeptical about the straight and slanted, plucking my eyebrows. I generally use tweezers with the finger loops, as it's a little more convienient for shaping. However, I gave these tweezers a go! I loved them! I will never go back to what I was using. Thank you Birchbox for the opportunity to try something new.
