Questions & Answers for MAKE UP FOR EVER Double Pencil Sharpener

Question
What's the little pointed stick inside?!
When you take the top off of the sharpener, there is a little pointed stick with a square block end sitting in a compartment above the sharpener holes.

What is this thing and what does it do? Is it just part of the case? It seems like a weird design to have a removable stick like that if it has no use.

What your are looking at is a stick used for cleaning out the sharpener ;) If the end brakes off or your sharpener gets jammed then you use that little stick to get the problem out!
Hope this answer helped

I use the stick to clean out the corners of the sharpener where the liner ends up.

If any liner tip breaks off inside you can use this stick to get it out. After i would use a q-tip, DRY, to rub the blade clean.

Hi applepie. The small wand works to dis-lodge pencil shavings and pieces that can get stuck between the blade. Hope that helps!

Yes, I use this sharpener on the Make Up For Ever aqua lip liner (a nude colored lip pencil), and it works great. The smaller hole fits the lip liner pencil perfectly, and the sharp tungsten blade sharpens nicely.

Hi,

My Laura Geller Chalk did come with its own sharpener. If you didn't get one, you should contact Sephora if it came from Sephora or the other sources. Whenever I've seen it (QVC, whatever) it always seems to come with a sharpener. You probably paid for one so you should be entitled to one from Laura Geller if you were supposed to get one. That's only fair.

Hope this helps.

This pencil sharpener is great for sharpening standard eye pencils and thick ones like the ones from Benefit. However, I don't know much about the Laura Gellar Caulk pencil. I believe that on the Sephora website the LGC pencil comes with its own sharpener.

I have the BeautyBlade from DuWop which you are asking about. It's supposed to have anti-microbial properties, but I don't see that as a benefit. The BeautyBlade is larger in size so takes up more "real estate" in your cosmetics bag. I think the MUFE sharpener works as well if not better, and I believe it's not quite as expensive as the BeautyBlade.

Hi,

While I like the DuWop sharpener better, this is a decent sharpener. The newer DuWop sharpener sanitizes pencils as it sharpens.

Hope this helps.

Hi! YES! I have used this sharpener on several different kinds of pencils. Large, smaller, waterproof and regular. Lipliners, eyeliners, eyebrow pencils and larger lip color pencils. I am amazed at this product! It's the only sharpener that I can trust not to destroy my makeup pencils. Love it.

Question
How do I clean this (without ruining the blades)?
I opened both the top and the bottom of my sharpener and there is eyeliner squished into every crevice of the thing! I'm sure bacteria can thrive on the [squished on] leftovers inside the sharpener, and I'm trying to keep my eyeballs bacteria free.

It's pretty difficult to get this stuff out. I've been using alcohol on a q-tip and I'm afraid it's going to harm the blades - the blades aren't for cutting cotton and I'm not sure if alcohol will cause rust (probably not). Don't know what a better way to go is..any ideas?

Hello - I would run this under the hottest water you have from the tap, then when it seems the wax and/or other stuff is coming off, use a soft toothbrush on the hard bits. Give this a few minutes - the hot water will work if you give it time. If you have scalded your hands in the meantime, put the sharpener in a small bowl with really hot tap water, let sit, brush gently with a soft toothbrush, rinse as best you can under hot water. A bit of dish soap might cut the wax/oil in the product. The hot water will dry quickly with a shake.

I'm a bit of a fanatic about cleaning the blades each time i use the sharpener. I remove the top and bottom, then wipe each blade with a tissue. I use the included attached pick to clean out the corners as much as possible, then I use q-tips for the final sweep. I've had my sharpener for years and have never had an eye infection.
