Rated 4 out of 5 by Bgirl86 TIPS FOR SHARPENING
I would have given this product a 5/5 but, like you may have read in other reviews, there is no way that they recommend to properly sharpen this eyeliner. The best tip I have to keep using this product instead of actually sharpening is to break off the end of the eyeliner and use a q tip to push up the product. I tried other tools to push it up and q tips work the best. This product is great and cheap and the only negative is the sharpening part of it. So I guess my title isn't accurate but I knew I would get more attention to show others the best tip to continue using this product when they need to get more of it after only a few days of using it. Hope I have helped some of you!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AmericanOCD138 Creamy & versatile product
Love this eyeliner. ... glides on creamy and smooth; doesn't tug at delicate eye area. Like that I can use it to create either a thin or thick line as well as in the waterline. My favorite is the NUDE pencil which really makes my eyes look open and more awake on tired days. I've used this pencil as a highlight on my cupidss bow as well as my brow bone. It's also great for contouring my nose as it's creamy consistency makes is blend easily into skin. Nothing better than a product that does triple duty.
As for sharpening yeah it's slightly more difficult than other pencils but have never been unable to sharpen pencil....a pocket knife or standard utility knife always does the trick.

I like this product very much especially the Sparkly Black. It stays for most of the day without reapplying. The first week of use was great...nice discreet lines. My only question is how to effectively sharpen it. Firstly there are no directions for sharpening. When I did use my regular sharpener it mangled the edges making it sharp when applying it. The lines are no longer applied as I like them. Previous purchases were discarded soon after use due to sharpening issues.
I see many other comments on this same issue. I am surprised this has not been addressed by Rimmel. I would give this product all 5's if there was a sharpening tool included or at least addressed on the packaging.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ama289 Good for thick lines difficult to make thin lines
I got the black pencil which is very dark and nice. I found that it makes thicker lines even when I sharpen it. I like a winged out eyeliner and it makes it very difficult to make that nice thin line that I'm going for. Although it's pretty smooth I feel like it's hard to get a perfectly straight line. It's not difficult to sharpen like other reviewers said, it's really easy to sharpen and I had no problems. So the cons would be that it's not good for making thin lines and is a little difficult to get crisp straight lines.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hope98 Great product, hard to sharpen and no instructions on how to do so!
I am in love with this product. It is easy to apply and is truthfully one of the best eyeliners I've ever used. The only downside is that it is hard to sharpen, and doesn't come with any instructions that tell you how to do so. I was so disappointed once I had used up the tip and went to sharpen it. It didn't completely fall apart, but refused to keep in the way that it came.
If anyone has any instruction as to how to sharpen it, please share! This is overall a great product that is just missing some instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HeyItsCat Favorite eyeliner
I was looking for good eyeliners that have good color payoff and easy to apply on the waterline so I decided to try this and OH MY GOD! I love it! It's very creamy and lasts all day. It goes on very easily onto my waterline, but I have to reapply after about 4-5 hours. One thing that does bother me is having to sharpen it. I find it very difficult to sharpen and try to avoid it for as long as possible. Otherwise this is my current favorite pencil eyeliner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jstruck33 Pretty good product
I really like this eye pencil. It's creamy, the color is very intense and lasts all day. I wish there was a shade in green. It is difficult to sharpen but I hear that putting the pencil in the fridge/freezer for 5 or 10 minutes prior to sharpening helps. I need to try that. But Rimmel should offer a superior sharpener for this pencil since the shavings are so tough to break off with a regular sharpener. I give 8 stars out of 10!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bladen32 Really Disapointed
I wanted to use this product because everyone had so many good things to say. When I finally went out and bought it I was very excited. But after opening it i found I couldn't even drawn a line on the back of my hand. It was very hard and crumbly and I was very confused because I had heard how smooth It was supposed to be. I cant even get it to draw on my eyelids. I love the Rimmel brand but I am very sad about this product.
