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.

I have a cheapo sharpener from the drug store, with the option of sharpening a thicker pencil. My sister got one from KMart... go figure.

You can buy a sharpener from Nars for $6.00. It has two size holes in it for lip pencil and liner.

Is this a stain?
Does this work as a stain? Or is it more so a long-wear lipstick that will come off after drinking/eating/kissing...Thanks

The matte pencil is the most long wearing of the three. the others are more like glosses lipsticks. None are stains.

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.

This is like a stain. It lasts ALL day, with very little touch up needed. I needed to use Make up remover to remove all the color.

i normally only were the long lasting stains that have the gloss on the other end. i got this for something different. it comes off clean and doesn't leave a stain on your lips.

Yes, you will need a sharpener eventually. Mine lasted a while before I needed to sharpen it though. I got a sharpener that was big enough for the pencil at my local drugstore. They are cheap there!

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!

I don't use a liner for these pencils. They are so glossy and pigmented I don't think you need one. If you are using a matte pencil or lipstick I would think a liner would be a good idea.

This chubby stick can be applied as a liner first and then filled in but for a more precise look, try a thin point liner to get added definition.

NARS for sure, at least on me. I have Urban Decay in Love Child and although it is a very nice shade and I will continue to use it, NARS definitely has greater staying power. They are my go-to for going out, etc.

Do you sharpen the lip pencil with a "makeup sharpener"?
The pencil looks like it's plastic. How do you bring up new pencil? Sharpen it or twist it?

Try the Lodhi color... it is amazing. It is 'different' but gorgeous and very 'in' right now (if you care about that sort of thing). I have blonde hair and blue eyes and I get tons of compliments when I wear it!

I would reccommend going in stores and having a Sephora representative help you, they can match shade best fit for you in person. Also these colors look better in person than they do online.

Question
Is this a deep raspberry red/burgundy or is it hot pink?
I am searching desperately for a raspberry deep red lipstick that has blueish undertones and is more on the deeper purple burgundy side but still with enough red that it appears a deep ripe raspberry colour overall. I have found a few YSL lipsticks that seem to work but I have had such great experience with this product in the past. Any suggestions are welcome?!
