”Bought this as a last ditch effort to save 2 high end pencil eyeliners I had recently purchased. The lead was so soft that my Loreal sharpener was just breaking it off. I wasted half of each pencil before I gave up trying to sharpen them! This sharpener, however, works like a charm. Seriously so sharp that it could sharpen even the softest eyeliner pencil to a perfect point!”

WHAT YOU GET: (1) All-Purpose Sharpener
Founded by successful models-turned-makeup artists Jean and Jane Ford, Benefit was built on the premise that “makeup doesn’t have to be serious to look good.” For the twin Fords, laughter was always the best cosmetic, a belief they infused into each of their products from the get-go. Just check out the quirky packaging and cheeky labels that accompany Benefit’s beauty boosters and you’ll get the drift! Today, the mega-brand is known for its insta-pretty solutions and ever-playful approach to beauty.
Bought mine in Sephora SG and this caught my attention because the super cute packaging and pretty pink hue caught my eye! I love that it can be used to sharpen both regular-sized and jumbo pencils, and what really makes it special is the tiny blade cleaner that came with it! I just hate getting left-over gunk on my makeup pencil sharpeners so that bonus is definitely a heaven sent for me! Will recommend this to my friends! P.S. the blade cleaner is the tiny rod wedged between the two blades. ;)6 months ago
True, it's a bit pricey but I kinda went with the flow when I got it. Anyway, the sharpener comes in a cute little box that bears Benefit's cute little cartoon drawings and shiny silver outer cover. The sharpener itself is made of plastic but the blades are metal. The pink color is an added bonus! 😋
As you can see, the sharpener can accommodate two pencils. One slot is for your regular sized pencils and the other one is for the jumbos. The sharpener also has a built in size adjuster (though you can't see it from this angle) so you can adjust the size of the holes accordingly to fit your pencil. Aside from that, it also comes with a blade cleaner (the straight little thingy in between the blades). This feature comes in handy because it really bites when the tip of your pencil breaks off and gets stuck in between the blades.
I'm not exactly recommending this product to you guys because it is a little pricey (P300). But I do recommend getting it when you need something to fill your carts so you can get the free shipping. Because let's admit...it does come in handy...😋
