Mine wore down to a nub even with sharpening. How do I get the rest out?  There is no push up mechanism etc. 

Asked by: Corosso
Hi there! our Faux Blacks eyeliners are traditional pencil eyeliners that sharpen with a cosmetic pencil sharpener. For best results, pair it with our fav sharpener found here: http://tinyurl.com/y3vnqtba. We hope you'll continue to love this perfect Faux Blacks Eyeliner!

How do I sharpen this pencil? Mine broke after one use

Asked by: chelles
Hi chelles! Thank you for asking about the Faux Liner. Please note this does not swivel. Despite the plastic-coated appearance, it can be sharpened with a cosmetic sharpener. We recommend checking out our sharpener here: https://www.nyxcosmetics.com/sharpener/800897117801.html - Hope this helps!

Are there corresponding eyeshadows that work with these colors? I LOVE oxblood, but am worried about it smearing because its such a soft pencil (a problem i've had before with nyx).

Just bought a Faux Black and a Faux White eyeliner this week. Can these be sharpened with a regular sharpener? The casing appears to be plastic, be I couldn't find any mechanism on-board to sharpen the pencils. Thank you!

Asked by: angarn614
A regular pencil sharpener should be fine as long as the blade isn't too dull. if the angle of your sharpener blade is different than the original angle the pencil was sharpener at, it might be a bit tricky to start, but it should be fine after that. A lot of companies have started using this kind of plastic packaging and I haven't had any issues using regular sharpeners so far. Good luck!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LOVE it except the color SLIPS OUT OF ITS CASING I bought two of these pencils and love the colors and how they stay on but aren't impossible to review. I'm giving it two stars because I can't use it when the eyeliner color slips out of the wood "pencil" casing. It happened to one and I exchanged it and that one has been fine, then it happened to the other one. It happens when it's very new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DRAMATIC Works for me! I put this midnight eyeliner over my bright blue to give it a darker blue look. I love the matte texture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Got the dark red, really love it for making rosy pink or copper eyes look more dramatic. My skin is pale with a Very pink undertone and this doesn’t make me look sick. Glides on very easily too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from found some gems these pencils are a bit too soft in texture, so it is not easy to get a sharp line, and to have a pointed end is almost impossible w/o erasing it back. but hear me out! this is not what this is for. because it is soft, it is really easy to work with in the waterline and the lower lashline (or even in a smokey liner way on the lid), and after it sets, the staying power is really strong. and the colors what i have are really something else. i love reddish tones, but those are hard to find. so i know i'm gonna be repurchasing these again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only eyeliner I have repurchased many times I hope this never ever gets discontinued, because the quality of these eyeliners in so amazing. My favorite by far is Burned Sienna- such a gorgeous color, very unique and rare. It has this warmer burgundy undertone, which looks amazing on hazel eyes. I find most eyeliners have cooler undertone or are weird shade, this one is just perfect, have been looking for that gorgeous color for years. The quality is also great: intense color, pigmented, lasts all day even in NYC heat and humidity. Using this pretty much every day and always keep a back up. Highly recommend to try these liners!
