Ever wonder what all those different types of tweezer tips are for? Here’s a quick breakdown of when and why you’d want to use each one:

Slant Tip: Preferred tip for eyebrow shaping and general tweezing. The flat edge of the slant quickly tweezes large surfaces; flip the tweezers to use the pointed edge for precision tweezing (see our 4860).

Rounded Tip: Great for sensitive skin and people new to tweezing. The rounded tip eliminates sharp edges that can pinch or cut the skin while still allowing for close contact and a clean tweeze (see our 4861).

Pointed Tip: Ideal for ingrown hair and splinters. The pointed tip allows the user to isolate single hair more easily for maximum precision. It can also slide gently under the skin’s surface to grasp and remove ingrowns or splinters (see our 4862).

Square Tip: Is most useful for tweezing large, flat surfaces like the chin. Can also be used after body waxing to remove any hair that was left behind (see our 4816).

Claw Tip: Like the square tip, it is used for large flat surfaces and after body waxing. The tip angle can help to improve visibility and make grasping hair easier. The tips also tend to “lock” together more tightly to help grasp the hair and minimize slipping (see our 4887).

Hi Everybody!  Ryan has agreed to let me post (a short post!) today because I’m in a shout-it-from-the-rooftops kind of mood about an exciting new product launch here at Belcam.  You guys might remember me as the Beauty Tools Brand Manager (or the gal who pesters Ryan until he lets me post).  🙂  ANYWAY…..

Here’s my exciting news!  We all know how hot tattoo art is and we can find it on just about any product these days.  But our 4 NEW Slant Tip Tweezers are the first metal grooming tools to feature this kind of art.

We are so, so lucky to have a very talented artist on our staff and when I told her our idea for putting some original tattoo art on tweezers, she came through with the most amazing designs.  Of course, we decided that we’d use high quality stainless steel tweezers from Italy as a base for the art.  They feature extra fine tips – the kind that grab the hair every time, not cut it off at the base.  They’re great for shaping eyebrows and for general tweezing, but best of all, they’re just SO COOL to look at.  I pulled one out in front of my friends the other day and they totally freaked out – and these girls aren’t hard core tattoo fans or anything.  Well, one might be.  😉

I promised this would be short ,so I’ll stop myself and just say that we’re all REALLY excited here and hope you all like the tweezers too.  Check them out below and if you want to buy some, you can get them at our online shop BelcamShop.com.

PS  My boss is letting me give a dollar off these tweezers when you use promo code “KIMROCKS” at checkout.  No, just kidding, you don’t need a promo code – we’re automatically giving everyone $1.00 Off.  But if you really want to type Kim Rocks! you can leave a comment to that effect below!  🙂

NEW Denco Tattoo Tweezers!

NEW Denco Tattoo Tweezers!

Hi Everyone! I’m Kim, and I’m the Brand Manager for Belcam’s Beauty Tools division. Ryan has very graciously allowed me to do a guest post today (read: I badgered him mercilessly until he finally shouted “FINE!”).

Moving right along… It’s about the time of year when we’re thinking about holiday gift giving, or more precisely, we’re wondering how it’s already Thanksgiving – and stressing about how we still have people to buy for and no idea what to get them.

So, I thought that making a list of beauty tool suggestions would be in keeping with the holiday spirit of giving and helping others. And, truthfully, I really wanted to have a list named “Kim’s Holiday Picks”. I’m convinced that Ryan is secretly thinking I’m an egomaniac for doing this, but his gift to me is to keep quiet.

Anyway, here is this list – I hope it helps you in your search for the perfect high quality (and affordable) gift of beauty for everyone on your list!

Kim’s Holiday Picks!
(insert fanfare here)

• For the Sophisticated Woman on your List
Aero Tweeze Slant Tip Tweezers These tweezers are made in Italy of high quality stainless steel and are available in 4 fun colors (purple is our best seller). The tips are ultra-fine and will tweeze even the shortest, finest hair the first time. No more struggling, no more slipping and no more cutting your eyebrow hair at the skin line with sharp tweezer tips… leaving that irritating and unsightly black “dot” of unreachable hair. If you’re wondering why anyone in their right mind would pay $18.99 for tweezers, you owe it to yourself to buy these. You’ll love them, your friends will love them and you’ll never need to ask yourself that nagging question again!

• For that Special Girl (who will lose the $18.99 tweezers and you’ll hold it against her forever)
Fiesta Tweezers – Slant Tip These tweezers are also made in Italy of stainless steel. They are available in 4 shimmering colors (the most popular, again, is purple). The tips are very good for eyebrows and general tweezing and their quality is far superior to the mass/retail tweezers you see from the “big boys”. At $6.50, they’re also super-affordable and perfect for teenage girls or slightly flaky friends who tend to lose things.

• For the Manly Man
Mustache Scissors & Comb OK, here’s the inside scoop on this product. Do NOT be misled by the Mustache part. These scissors are made in Italy (noticing a trend?) and feature thin, precise tips and a smooth cutting action. While they’re great for mustaches and beards, and don’t rely on batteries or electricity, they are also perfect for nose hair, ear hair and trimming any “mad scientist” eyebrows that tend to crop up. Oh, and they’re ideal for evening out sideburns or trimming any other unwanted body hair (read: they’ll get a LOT of use!).

• For the Hip Guy
Professional Toenail Clippers These toenail clippers are stainless steel, made in Japan and just super-cool. They have a slight wave-design and a high end brushed finish. Ideal for both toenails and fingernails, any guy would be proud to pull these out of his bathroom drawer. And the best part is that the super-sharp blades cut cleanly and leave nails smooth and burr-free. These clippers even boast a removable clipping catcher so you’re not accidentally impaling your poor, bare foot in the middle of the night on a razor sharp clipping that wasn’t picked up from the bathroom floor! I’m not pointing any fingers here, but some men just let those toenails fly, so the catcher is a good idea.

Well, that does it. If you’re wondering why I haven’t put anything in here for the younger kids on your list, shame on you. What self-respecting kid wants a grooming product for the holidays?! I mean, really. 🙂

Denco Aero Tweeze

Denco Aero Tweeze

Whether you are a professional or just someone who wants professional results, using quality tweezers makes a world of difference when trimming fine hairs. Shaping eye brows, for example, involves precision in order to get that perfect look. This requires tweezers with fine tips that are precise, effective, and with a design that is simple and easy to use. Denco Aero Tweeze are a complete line of high quality, professional tweezers that get the job done.  These tweezers are stainless steel so they will not rust, and are made in Italy, with precisely aligned tips. The cut-out body design that is light weight and improves grip and precision because it’s easy to hold. Every Aero Tweeze tweezer comes with a protective pouch for safe travel and storage, and a lifetime guarantee.  They come in four colors (blue, white, pink and purple), and three different types of tips: slanted (for consistent results), rounded (for sensitive skin), or pointed (ideal for ingrown hair and precision work). For more information about Denco Aero Tweeze visit BelcamShop.com.

Seems like every big designer is making cosmetics now: Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel. Giorgio Armani Beauty offers a complete line of cosmetics for the face, nail, eyes, and lips. They even have accessories like sable brushes, and collections. Featured for this spring is the “Pink Light Collection.” The collection consists of a pink light eye palette, light master primer, blending blush duo, lip wax, and armanisilk lipstick. You can learn more about the Pink Light Collection, other Armani Beauty products, and even learn how to apply the pink light look by clicking here.

I came across some interesting new cosmetics from Sally Hansen, a variety of nail color products. 

nail-artNail Art Pens apply a fast drying color over your existing nail color for stylized looks. They are water-based, so if you make a mistake you can remove it with a moist cotton swab, without effecting the underlying nail color. They come in 8 shades and retail for $7.95.

The Nail Art Pens might be more interesting to a 14 year old girl, but there are more sophisticated uses for the pens. The French Manicure Pen Kit for example, features a fine tip pen that makes it easy to do a French manicure or pedicure, with more control so you can make a fine line. It retails for $14.95. There’s also the Quick Care Nail Treatment Pens, that are great for a little clean-up or cuticle treatment.

Finally there’s Insta-Dri, an all new fast drying nail color. They claim it can be applied in seconds, dry in less than a minute, and still lasts long. 

So many exciting new items for you nails. Has anyone tried these yet? What do you think?
