I bought an eyebrow pencil last week as I have really fair eyebrows, well it ran down. Well I went to sharpen it and it is very hard to turn in the sharpener and it keeps breaking.
I have tried metal sharpeners, plastic and they is no difference it keeps breaking.

It's no different the a cheap pencil a bought!! Think it was either 12 or 15 pound. I expect better for this price.

Do you have one, if so what's yours like to sharpen?
Also am I right to think of taking it back to Boots?

I have never got on with pencils. I have never been able to sharpen them either.
I go to clinique now as the do pencils which just push down.
It makes life less complicated.
The best eyebrow one is benefit one which has two brushes in it though?

I use a cheapy rimmel one - it's fine to sharpen but TBH it doesn't need sharpening that often!

Took pencil back to boots, and the girl asked what type of pencil sharpener I was using er!!!!! Only there are cosmetic pencil sharpeners!!

Well she did it no prob, so I bought a boots one £2.

So any ladies where your eyebrow pencil won't sharpen properly you know why now.
