How do you open it?
I thought it would be obvious to open my new NARS pencil sharpener, but I have not found how to open it to clean it.

Just pull off the top that says NARS. If needed, wedge your fingernail under the lip by the holes for sharpening. It should come off pretty easily!

There is a little bitty button on the side that you can push down with your finger nail that releases the top.

The lid comes right off. There's a piece inside that helps you clean it out as well. But, it clicks in tightly, which is a great feature.

First time I had to open it, I had to take the end of my tweezers and pop it under the top cap (the one that says NARS) on the same side as the sharpening holes.

answer 11
There is a little tab at the front of the sharpener above the sharpener holes that you can push up on to take the top off. It is not hinged so you don't need to worry about breaking one. The pick is inside near the hole side. Pull it out gently because mine broke right away.

Hi,

Yes it can fit. There's an adapter that removes to allow for all size pencils. Eye Bright is a pretty standard large pencil, anyway. (I love eye Bright, too). This is an excellent sharpener.

Hope this helps.

I haven't personally used it on the benefit eye bright but it has in reality 3 sizes of holes. One for your regular sized pencils, then one for your larger sizes, then for the really large sizes like Nars Lipstick pencil (roman holiday) you take a little gasket out of the large hole and wah lah! it fits an even larger pencil. You can see it in the photo. They call it an adapter, probably a better word.

It's big enough to do the Nars Matte pencils if you remove the insert. It can't go bigger than that. I am not sure how you would sharpen the Benefit pencils because they are huge.

What does it look like and how does it work?

answer 1
The blade cleaner is basically a toothpick hidden inside the upper deck of the sharpener when you open the top its this little notch on the side you slide it out and you scrape the gunk off the inside with it like the product left on the blade I suggest cleaning it after every use.

answer 2
The blade cleaner is a little toothpick that lets you scrape off any residual product from the blade. Its nestled horizontally, right when you open up the top, kind of like in a pocketknife. It took me forever to notice it, to be honest! But it's a nice little addition.

It is a tiny stick that slides out of the sharpener. You can use it to scrap the eyeliner residue off of the blade and keep it clean and gunk-free. A must-have for sharpeners!

The blade cleaner looks like a little toothpick and it fits nicely on the top. If you look to the top side of the sharpener, there's this little rectangle (about 1mm). Pull the blade cleaner out and use it to clean gunk that can get on blade from sharpening pencil.

Although NARS technically only sells one model of sharpener, for some reason there are two different sharpeners (with the same model number) in stores. Make sure to get the one with the adapter, and remove adapter to fit velvet matte lip pencils. The one that does not come with adapter, the hole is too small to fit the bigger lip pencils.
