Question
How do I sharpen the Laura Mercier triangular-shaped eyebrow pencil?

answer 1
I use an inexpensive Maybelline sharpener. It's the one with two openings, one for pencil sized products and the larger opening for crayon sized products. The pencil sized hole works fine with the triangle shaped Laura Mercier pencil.

You can buy their own sharpener from a Laura Mercier counter at any dept. store.

The triangular shape just makes it easier to grip in your fingers. You can sharpen the pencil with a regular makeup pencil sharpener.

I use a normal sized sharpener. You might have to put forth a little effort to fit it in and turn it, but it will work. However, as the pencil gets shorter, it does become hard to turn in the sharpener.

I think the 'blonde' color is suitable for anyone who has a relatively medium-light complexion. Its very neutral and ashy, with no red tones, so I think its a safe choice if you don't have really dark hair.

I've used many different types of sharpeners with this product and had no difficulties with the exception of Sephora's "slim" sharpener. Don't use that one because from my experience, the slim sharpener only works well on Sephora slim pencils. Other than that, you should be able to use any good quality sharpener on this pencil.

Question
Are online perchases returnable to the store
I purchased this pencil online and do not like it. I love the color but halfway through the day my eyebrows are gone! I am going to be at a mall that has a sephora tomorrow. Can I return it to the store or must I return it by mail. And do you know of any other eyebrow pencil that has good staying power? I have tried the Larua Gellar Brow marker and it's OK but looks a little fake at the edge were I have no eyebrows. I have a medical condition that causes the outer 1/3 of your eyebrow to fall out. Do you have any suggestions?

You can't return online purchases to the store. BUT you get free return shipping. And I mean free- they don't take any $ off of your return money. It's cheaper to buy stuff online and save the gas money, because they have a really good return policy. Even if you open it and try it out and find you don't like it, just fill out the return slip and mail it for free. =]

I've tried many pencils and this one lasts the longest. Be sure you don't put any moisturizer on your brows--that will cause the pencil to wear off fast. Maybe you can just keep it in your purse and re-apply mid day? Good luck! I feel your pain w/the weak eyebrows, I'm right there with ya!

You can always return online purchases to the store. I have never had a problem. I shop there often and I am adamant about returns because you can never tell if a color is working for you until you get out in the broad daylight. The important thing in choosing the right color for your brows is what looks good in daylight will ultimately look good anywhere! Take the time to choose the right color and don't worry so much about returns because sephora has great customer service!

The soft brunette is on the darker side. If you have blonde or a really light brown hair I would probably not choose the soft brunette.

If you have very light blonde eyebrows this pencil may look too dark for your complexion. I have highlighted medium blonde hair and eyebrows with a few gray hairs. The blonde pencil appears more ash colored when applied. It fills in the empty spots on the brow and produces a very natural looking brow.

For light grey hair, stick with the Lt. Taupe. It's the best most natural choice for Lt. Blondes, or Lt.Grey hair. Professional makeup artist suggest this as well. The Lt. Taupe is a perfect shade, won't turn yellow or red. Just the perfect Lt. Taupe, that is a true Natural shade of Taupe. The whole idea is your brow but better, and this is The Best, Natural Taupe Color. The Lt. Taupe! I did also try the next shade up, and that's good but too dark for me.

probably a greyish taupe or very neutral greyish brown. These are not easy colors to find. Just plain grey tends to look odd. A decent but unpredictable product is Browlistic by Paula's Choice which is a sort of cross between a marking pen and a brush. comes in medium and light and in reality the medium is quite dark and the light is a medium color. It is easy to use and very long lasting and is a natural looking taupe. But the quality is unpredictable. Sometimes the product goes on and on, others have dried up rather quickly. The company has been very gracious in replacing these. I store them standing with the brush facing down and use all three that I currently own (an original purchase and the two "gracious" replacements to get a complete set of brows. None of them lasts enough at one time to do a whole brow but they seem to recover after a few minutes so by rotating them I accomplish what I need. However this is still my "go to" for long lasting, natural looking brows. They are $10 each.

I would try and stick with something pretty neutral like the "blonde". It's really not too light but its not yellow which you want to stay away from if you have grey hair. Use it lightly just to fill it sparse areas.
