It sharpens but does not stay together
Purchased

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!!!
Purchased

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
Purchased

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.

Good enough
Purchased

I only use one side, but it's good to have different hole sizes. You could probably find a sharpener that will do just fine and for cheaper.

I really like the round shape of this sharpener, easy to store in a small spot. It sharpens very smoothly & easily.

What a gem!
Purchased

This little sharpener is magical! It works beautifully on regular slender pencils and chubby sticks alike. It sharpens like a dream, and it's a tidy little thing to have in your makeup bag. LOVE it, and highly recommend.

works...ok, but not perfect.
Purchased

this sharpener didn't work so well on the smaller side. i have a very old (8+ years) sharpener that works better than this one except that the clear cover falls off sometimes and gets all over everything. this sharpener is great in that regard. i would recommend this to someone who doesn't want to risk having the shavings get all over everything!!

This is the worst sharpener I have ever used!
Purchased

I wanted a good sharpener that would sharpen my eyeliner pencils as well as my chubby lip pencils. I was willing to pay extra to get a really good sharpener. I ordered this with another purchase I was making with Birchbox so I kind of threw it in at the last minute without researching it at all. As usual, when I do that I end up kicking myself. It was difficult to use and didn't do a good job sharpening the pencils or the chubby lip pencils. I am considering tossing it but I just hate to because of the price I paid for it.
