I’ve been seeing nail polishes and nail treatments by Cynthia Rowley in many of the better department stores lately. And now she’s joined forces with brand icon Tweezerman, with the Cynthia Rowley Limited Edition Designer Series collection, exclusively at Sephora.
Tweezerman was kind enough to send me two of the new items and I’m really excited to be able to share them with you. I know you’ve seen me post about Tweezerman before and their fine line of eye beauty products. They also have a manicure line which you may not be aware of. So I’m going to talk to you not only about the new slant tweezer I was sent, but also about the double-sided file (Filemate), both from the new Cynthia Rowley line.
I love the feel of this tweezer and I’m one of those that keeps things like scissors, files, AND tweezers, in all rooms of the house. I have used them for stray hairs, removing splinters, tweezing my brow, (and maybe one you don’t want to admit to – the occasional picking of a flea or tick off my kitty, or maybe your dog). This slant design is easy to use and the colors are beautiful, so this one may be kept in my bathroom cabinet! I received the cobalt blue and I love the design mixed with the green, white and black. It is also available in a light blue.
The double-sided Filemate comes in a similar pattern to the file I received, but in multiple shades of pinks, white and cobalt blue. The small size snuggles in it’s own slim case to keep it clean and protected, and fits comfortably in a pocket or purse.
These are really fun and functional products Tweezerman and Cynthia Rowley have come up with. I would recommend picking them up for yourself, or as stocking stuffers. Yeah, I think I know what my girls might be getting this year. And I’ve got a nice little Sephora gift card just burning a hole in my pocket!
These products were sent to my by Tweezerman for my honest and impartial review.
Yes. I succumbed. I couldn’t help it. It was the fault of my friend Katie. I didn’t think I needed the new Zoya LE Boxes for New York Fashion Week. She made me think otherwise! LOL When she posted pix of the Peter Som Box and said how much the green was different than any she’d ever seen, I knew I was in trouble. If she hadn’t seen it and didn’t have it in her collection, it was a good bet I hadn’t and didn’t either! I have at least 100 Zoyas. Don’t make me go upstairs in my polish area, pull out the overflowing Helmer and count them all. Suffice it to say they fill an entire drawer and also go into another drawer! Ack! HOW did that happen?!?! Aren’t I the OPI lover?
But not one to leave well enough alone, I figured if I was buying one NYFW LE Box I had to have the other. Like a set of matching book ends, dontcha know?! So I also have the Bibhu Mohapatra Box. Since I was late to the party, I wasn’t able to buy them directly from Zoya. I bought them on eBay from a seller who was charging the same $24 price that Zoya charged, so she was probably an authorized dealer. That’s good because I’m not fond of eBay scalpers or bidder stupidity (lemming mentality). She also gave me discounted shipping and after ordering over the weekend, they arrived Tuesday, even with a postal holiday yesterday. She also included a couple of beauty samples. Idk if there will be any of the LE Boxes left by the time you read this, but she has a nice selection of beauty items in her store you might enjoy. Check her out at THIS LINK.
OK, now here’s the kicker. You’ve seen the names of the bottles in the Peter Som collection haven’t you? Evvie, Audrey, Katherine. Katherine? Is that right? That’s what it says on the Zoya Page doesn’t it? BUT, what does your bottle label say? Mine is Katharine. Katie was quick to contact Zoya for an explanation for this. They sent her a new sticker with the Katherine spelling! Should I or shouldn’t I?
Did you buy the NYFW LE Boxes? Do you plan on doing it, if you can still find them at a reasonable price? Will you actually use them once you get them? That’s always my biggest problem. Now that I have a true collector’s item, do I dare use it? What will you do?
