This sharpener sharpens perfectly but it defeats the purpose when it does not stay together. It might as well be sold as a two piece instead of a single unit.
This little black beauty is a MUST!!!
This sharpener is a dream . It works so well that I started to hunt down every makeup pencil that I own or that was in my vicinity . I was so tired of being in a rush getting ready and not having an adequate pencil sharpener. Until now , every poor excuse for a sharpener I had would just hinder me and cause me to run late . If you've ever had a makeup pencil literally break off or poke your eye then please treat yourself and try this . I surprised myself by purchasing a nine dollar sharpener here and I'm really glad I did . I'm really surprising myself by writing a review going on and on , waxing poetic waxing poetic about something so simple. A sharpener? I am because it is pretty amazing. This device works well and works well every time . It will sharpen two different sizes . Surprisingly, it actually will work for most of your chunky pencils:)
design could be better - but icicle sharp pencils, yo
i can't believe how sharp this thing gets my pencils. in fact, i think i owe this product my ability to finally make a halfway decent cat eye. wow. i just have a teeny lil quibble with the design. i love the unusual barrel shape and the dual end. but you know how your drugstore sharpeners are always coming apart in your makeup bag, and that plastic clear thingy is falling off and all the shavings you were too lazy to empty out come out, not to mention mushy crumbs of eye or lipliner? well, i was really hoping that this would be the end of that. see, i thought the two halves would screw together to hold tight. but nah, one half just fits into the other, snuglike, but not quite snug enough to prevent the occasional shavings dump. so that's disappointing. but anyhoo. icicle. sharp. eyeliners. worth it.
Amazing for chubby pencils
This sharpener is a god send. Not only does it not destroy all my beloved NARS chubby pencils, but it creates the perfect evenly sharpened point for optimal application. All other sharpeners have eaten away at my pencils or made the point so uneven it would break off. Get this in your makeup bag; it's an essential tool!!
Small & Versatile
I love this as a one stop tool for all my pencils that require sharpening from time to time. Large enough not to get lost. Nice grip. Simple
