Doubts Discussion: How to Sharpen NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils?

Today, I will be starting with this new section on BMM where you can raise, discuss and resolve any doubts related to makeup, skin care, usage, how to’s and more!!

From Manisha,

I have Lakme Sharpener, Especially got it thinking it could help me sharpen my NYX jumbo pencil but sadly it doesnt. Probably coz NYX eye pencil is made of plastic and not wood.

NYX-Jumbo-Eye-Pencil-Milk-Bean-Look

Me: I also have the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk Bean, but didn’t came across the situation of sharpening it yet. I was pretty sure that the Lakme one would be able to do this job but I think I shall start looking out for other options.

Update:- I just tried using the Lakme Sharpener for this task and it worked well. :).

Hey Beauties, if you own any of the NYX Jumbo eye Pencils or could suggest of the way to sharpen them .

I too have similar pencils… I found a very cute jumbo pencil sharpener (made in china) in a stationery shop which works wonders with such pencils…

It just doesnt stay put on waterline.. fades too early.. :(
Yeah jumbos are a bit difficult to sharpen.. but glad that lakme does the job for me!! :)
