These looked a little quirky on the hang-sell in Life pharmacy - and I like to try new things. They were about $10, so not anymore expensive than the other pretty ones, and liked the black tone. I wear contact lenses, and so when plucking my eyebrows and pulling my skin taut in all directions can be a but of a pain, as its a mission for me to see with my glasses, or if I leave my lenses in run the risk of one popping out. I liked these because it meant that I could still see them and where they were aiming which made for no obvious errors. They are super sharp though, and seemed to snap a couple of the hairs rather than pulling them smoothly out.
