I found a sharpener at my local drug store for pretty cheap. It's metal and has different holes for different shaped pencils. Hope that helps!

Best way to sharpen these pencils is to get a jumbo sized eyeliner sharpener. I've found that by putting the pencils in the freezer for 5 mins before I sharpen them it makes it easier and I waste less product too.

Question
Can you sharpen
I have purchased these pencils in the past and once they wore down, I was unable to access the remaining product in the pencil. I was unable to sharpen. Once the tip wears down is that it?

I have never had a problem sharpening these pencils. If you are finding your normal large sized sharpeners aren't working, I would purchase the Nars sharpener to ensure it will fit.

Sephora's sharpener has two different sized wholes and the bigger one fits the Nars lip pencil and sharpens it perfectly. Plus it's cheap. Give it a try!

No, you must sharpen these, you can't push up. Bite Beauty has the push up pencil kind, which means you end up with no wasted product. They have similar colors and they're a great bet if you're looking for a push up pencil!

You need a clean pencil sharpener. Sephora sells a specific NARS sharpener, but not sure if that size is necessary if you have a clean, unused sharpener that fits the size.

I bought the Sephora $6 Look Sharp pencil sharpener. The bigger side fits the Nars pencil perfectly if you remove the pink insert. I have also used sharpeners I bought at the drugstore, as long as it has the bigger hole you will be fine. Nasr also sells one for $6 that should work!

You have to sharpen these with a makeup pencil sharpener, like any other makeup pencil. Your best bet is to get a sharpener that has a big and a smaller hole, so that you can sharpen the regular size pencils and the promotional/free gift sizes, which are always smaller than the full size. When you sharpen, pay attention carefully, because if you over sharpen, you will just break off the tip again in the sharpener. So go slowly, check your progress by pulling the pencil out and checking how the tip is sharpening, and continue until you get the point you like.

This doesn't wear as permanent as a stain but it is long lasting & lasts through meals & drinks. The boldness of the color wore off just a little but was definitely still vibrant enough. I typically use makeup removing wipes at the end of the night to ensure all of it comes off.
