Things You SHOULD Invest in: ‘Cosmetics’ Pencil Sharpener

That’s right ladies do not bother using your little Hello Kitty sharpener that you use for your pencils; use one that is made for eyeliner pencils.
I remember when I used to try to sharpen my eyeliner pencils with a regular sharpener and usually ended up ruining the pencil. The tip would be so rough and uneven that I would be too scared to even put it near my eye! Oh yeah, and sometimes the thing would keep breaking that I couldn’t even use it if I wanted to…
My solution was to invest in a sharpener made for an eyeliner pencil. At the time I was also having a dilemma with my NYX jumbo eye pencils as they were becoming quite dull, so I needed a sharpener that would accommodate them.
I went to Sephora and ended up getting the MUFE (Make Up For Ever) double pencil sharpener. 
Make Up For Ever Double Pencil Sharpener

Boy am I glad I did. I have not seen such a smooth cut on pencils in my life! Obviously this sharpener is designed for cosmetic pencils!  It works great on the NYX jumbo pencils too!
The best part is that very minimal product is wasted when sharpening. The blade sharpens so neatly and thinly that it mostly only takes off the wood part of the pencil. Tell me you aren’t in love.
Before- Dull NYX Jumbo Pencil
After- Take off the cap and voila! The shavings are so easy to remove!
The bottom part also comes off and there is also a little pick that you can use to take out product that gets stuck in the blades :)

For only $7 pick up yours today! Sephora- Make Up For Ever Double Pencil Sharpener


  1. Wow! That looks amazing... At the moment I only have small eyeliners, so I have been using the one that came on the cap of the eyeliner, but as soon as I buy a jumbo, I'll have to get one of these!

    The price is also very reasonable :))


  2. :) Trust me it makes such a difference! You won't regret this purchase!
