SCOUTED: Dual Sharpener with Pick

Sorry about the awkward title, I just didn't know how best to actually call these sharpeners.

You know how there are lip pencils and lip crayons? One is sized like a regular graphite pencil while the other is more or less the same size as a jumbo crayon (duh). I have both sizes for both lip and eye products... that's a lot of sharpeners. I know in my elementary school days I had those dual sharpeners that served 2 sizes so I'm pretty sure cosmetics have the same thing.

To be honest, I don't want to spend on such a dumb thing as a sharpener. I think it's such an unnecessary and wasteful tool. After all, I can just take a sanitized razor blade to my cosmetics AND sharpen it in a really economical way. With a blade, I can go for the wood and avoid the lead... sharpeners can't do this.

But for just Php 59.75, I think I can afford to be frivolous.

I bought the NYX dual sharpener along with the NYX Jumbo Crayons but I didn't think it was blog-worthy. I got it for the Jumbo (eye) Crayons but ended up needing to sharpen one of my NARS lip pencils first. I realized I didn't want a shared-use sharpener for my eye and lip stuff; that's an infection waiting to happen!

This China-brand dual sharpener (Php 59.75, Landmark TriNoma) is great! It has a cover to keep all the junk in and more importantly, a pick wedged between the two blades. SO CLEVER! Sometimes I break pencils when I sharpen them, and I hate the tip that gets left behind. This pick is looooooove.
