Ever Bilena Cosmetic Pencil Sharpener – It makes a point…

As one local highly-paid make-up artist proceeded to apply a beautiful look on one of his clients, I discreetly asked what make-up pencil sharpener would he recommend that wouldn’t ruin eye and lip pencils.  I was disgusted with how a Cover Girl make-up sharpener had nearly ruined my expensive pencil lot.  You know what ruined means, rendering the pencil nib far from the pointy cone that it should be and causing the lead to go off-center and wobble within the pencil’s wood shaft.  Awful.  With the flick of a brush and confident flair he said “Ay!  You know…Ever Bilenahhhhhhh…it’s the cheapest and yet it’s the best…”  Sooo…


…I purchased it at Watson’s for Php50.00, just lovely, and the best part…

…he wasn’t kidding, that thingamajig really works!  These pencils look brand new, but they’ve been sharpened twice with this budget sharpener.  The pencils you see here are my Ever Bilena black eye pencil (yes,yes, review soon) and my NYX  Slim lip pencil in 845 Hot Pink (NYX is already available at Beauty Cocktails in Glorietta 4, selected products only).  As for my expensive pencil lot…

…they’re feeling pretty sharp.  What’s great about this search for the best sharpener is that I got a direct reply from the Pixiwoo sisters via Twitter.  They recommend refrigerating your cosmetic pencils prior to sharpening, and their high-end brand sharpener recommendations are Chanel and Make Up For Ever.
