I love this manicure set and will purchase it for travel. I was originally looking for a petite pair of tweezers for my eyebrows. Can the trimmer, which handles like a tweezer, be used for tweezing your eyebrows?

If you want to cut your eyebrows, then use the trimmer. Tweezerman tweezers are the way to go for tweezing.

I would be careful if you used it that way. It is meant to clean up nail beds and hang nails, so I don't think it'll pluck the hairs very well.

The implement you describe in this kit is a mini nipper and is designed to trim cuticle from around the nails. It will cut whatever you try to use it on. I would not try to use it as tweezers.

No, the motion used to achieve the cuticle cut is the same used for tweezers, but the point of these is to cut. There's no way they would hold the hair for a tug. You'd cut your eyebrows off!
I've used it in a pinch. It's not as precise I find, but a few stray hairs can be plucked out. I have thicker eyebrow hairs, so if yours are fine it may not be as easy.
