It may seems silly but it's hard to find a good eye pencil sharpener. Up until now I've been sharing one with my mom which did a great job without ravaging my eyeliners. After trying to find a new one for quite some time I decided to give this one a try and was very happy. The tips of my pencils have not broken off once using this nor have I had any issues with the blades loosening or other issues. The days of fighting for the good sharpener have ended!
