The wheel, obviously. That was a good one. Some graphic designer types might say the umbrella. It’s simple yet highly effective. Stoner Bobs might say something like a spork. Also effective though arguably the ugliest of all utensils. The point is: Who doesn’t enjoy a well-designed piece of daily life? None among us, I would argue.
And here at Allure, nicely arched brows are a part of daily life. At least we aspire to have them. At least I do. I have at this moment no fewer than six Tweezerman slant-tip tweezers at my desk. My greed knows no equal. You want to know why I insisted on writing this product review? Because six wasn’t enough. Forget that the company will sharpen your tweezers for free for the rest of your life. I wanted more. And my duplicity paid off. Bwahahaha.
When you write one of these reviews, a lovely assistant named Amanda Bohnson gives you the actual product. (Oh, believe me, I’ve tried to make stuff up before but the research department never lets me.) And here’s the thing: I have kind of been reviewing these little suckers for 10 years. 15? 20??? This is a good place for a caveat: They’re kind of addictive. Which is a nice way of saying I have no interest in reliving my college ID picture from 1996. I’ve learned to limit the duration of these tweezing sessions. Five minutes. (Six if I’m in a bad mood. Seven if I realize I should have gone to medical school and become a surgeon.)
Anyway, I didn’t even have to take the cool metal tweezers out of their case to know: They’re satisfyingly weighty in your hand, they dive in with the precision and strength of a fighter jet, and most importantly, they will yank out even the finest baby hair with all the remorse and contrition of Walter White. They’re ruthless. They’re cold-hearted. And they’re amazingly good at what they do.
