PRODUCT FEATURE:TOOLS: ETUDE HOUSE MINI BROW CLASS

When I first saw this, I thought, FINALLY, i'd have something to address my long brows very quickly and easily.
Click on the pictures below to enlarge and magnify what is written on the back of the packaging.
The directions are in English.
The item itself is a pair of scissors.  It's bent at the base of its levers at an angle.  one of the levers has a a groove onto which the comb attachment can slide as an attachment.  so yes, without the comb this device is just a plain old pair of scissors bent at the base of its levers at an angle.  Only one lever has the groove to slide the comb at.  So you can't reverse the way you hold it if you're gonna use this pair on your other brow.
for the terminology used, please refer to the diagram below:
there's a diagram on how to use this on one brow.  but i had to figure out for myself how to use this gizmo on my other brow once i was done following the below.
so here's how it's done on the diagram, and me trying to do it.
and here's me trying to do it on my left, my non-dominant side.  Ok, here's the thing, if you've ever cut hair, cloth or paper, you generally should be perpendicular to what you are cutting.  so imagine a piece of paper laying flat on the table, the pair of scissors is perpendicular to the paper.  Then you go and cut.  The instructions given on this brow scissors make you go parallel to your skin and hair and then they expect me to cut.  well to say the least, i failed.  was I supposed to handle this like a
The instructions given on this brow scissors make you go parallel to your skin and hair and then they expect me to cut.  well to say the least, i failed.  was I supposed to handle this like a pair of scissors to layer the hair [thinning shears]?
and see, what i eventually did to finally trim the edges of my brows.  I use a brush spoolie, i raise up my brows like you see below then trim the very top edges of my brows using the edge of my eye brows as a guide.

and this is what I mean when I mentioned top 'edge' of my brows.  I use this line as a guide  any hair that go over this line when i stand them up with the spoolie, I trim it off.  so ang ginagawa ko ay itinataas ko yung mga strands ng kilay ko ng nakatayo.  Tas pag may lalampas sa ibabaw ng mismong kilay ko, yun yung gugupitin ko.
This way my brows don't look overgrown.
it's not perfect, but it's my way.  And in my opinion, i prefer imperfect, at least i don't look too made up. hehehe
THE VERDICT.  
In my opinion and considering my way of using scissors to trim my browse, the only thing that made the Etude House Mini Brow Class pair of brow scissors is the fact that the levers are bent at that angle.  This angle is just right for me to stand it up  (with the bottom lever) on my skin so that the scissors are perpendicular to my brow hairs for me to cut well.  Sa madali't sabi, yung angle ng pagka curve/bent ng gunting eh just right para mai-lapat ko yung gunting sa balat ko para stable yung pag gupit ko.
I remove the comb that comes with the scissors.  i just can't make it work for me.  I do understand that some people have been successful in using this.  I'm glad for them.  Maybe someday I can understand how to make this pair of scissors work on my brows as how it is instructed. ;-)
DISCLAIMER:
I purchased this item with my own money.  This is available at any branch of Etude House Philippines for PhP278.

Usually, I also trim my brows using scissors and brush :D I think it's so much simpler than the Etude House tool.
