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!

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 freeze mine and use the Benefit sharpener, which is only $5. Other sharpeners that work well are Bobbi Brown and Urban Decay but they are more pricey. Honestly with the pencil already being on the pricier side I would invest in a nicer sharpener vs. drugstore just to ensure you get your money's worth of product!

It fits fine into the larger hole of the NARS double sharpener. Don 't understand all these how to sharpen questions. It's a thick wooden pencil, you use the big hole pencil sharpener!

It's not a matte lip color that's for sure. If I prep and prime my lips before lining and filling with a matching liner, then the satin color stays on a bit better. As far as kisses, you may be able to get away with a few LIGHT pecks, but odds are you'll still end up a SO with matching lip color. I always tell my SO it's a great color on him.

I wouldn't recommend it for that. It has some staying power on your lips, and I found that it transfers even hours later. (I tried it about 4-5 hours after application.)

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.
