Bourjois Pencil Sharpener
Advantages: Sharpens quickly, Easy to clean, Great value, Nice colour
Using eye-liner nearly every day I often have to sharpen the pencil to keep the tip from going blunt and flat. I have used other brands of sharpeners, how-ever they didn't do a very good job of sharpening the eye-liner or the top would end up breaking off of the eye-liner.
I went into my local boots store to do my usual monthly shop and came across the sharpener by Bourjois. The sharpener caught my eye because of the bright pink colour it was; how-ever I noticed that there were 2 sizes in the sharpener for different sized pencils which was really handy.
I bought the sharpener which cost me approximately £2.49 which I thought was very reasonable, considering the brand of make it was as I find Bourjois products quite pricey. My eye-liner pencil actually needed sharpening anyway so it's lucky that I found this sharpener when I was in boots.
The sharpener is made from a pink coloured plastic which stands out as it's quite bright. On the left hand side there is a hole in which normal standard sized pencils can go in and on the right the hole was larger which is probably for eye crayons. The sharpener was in the shape of a box and I noticed that over the top of the blade there was a plastic covering which can flip open.
I started to sharpen the eye-liner pencil and with just a few twists the pencil was sharpened and all the shavings had been collected underneath the plastic cover which flips open so you can empty it. I did find that because eye-liner pencils can be soft that it can sometimes leave the sharpener a little messy. I noticed where the holes are on the sharpener there is a small bit which stick out, I wasn't really sure what this was, so I pulled it, and out came a small plastic stick. This was great as it enabled me to clean in between the blade of the sharpener to keep it clean and from clogging up. The stick can then be wiped with a cloth and then slotted back into the hole.
I have had the sharpener over a year now and it still sharpens just as well as it did when I first purchased it. The sharpener is so simple to use and is easy to empty and clean with the help of the small stick which is provided. I give this product 5 out of 5 stars as it does everything it needs to and is reliable and good value.
