Do you check your pencil eyeliners before applying?

Ladies, check your pencil liners, especially after you've sharpened it!

I learnt this the hard way a couple days ago. My stupid sharpener (which i will complain about review soon) got stuck so it couldn't sharpen a great deal, but i did get enough product out so I went ahead and used it. It felt a little rough upon application, but I thought it was bearable so I just kept on at it.

Only when I removed my makeup did I realize that I had cut both my eyelids earlier with the eyeliner! :O It stung like a big fat frickin' bee when I applied my eyecream, and more so when I applied antiseptic cream! T_T

The wound:


I took a close look at my pencil liner and am horrified to find several sharp edges on it. The culprit:


To be thankful, my wounds were not deep and I shudder to think that I could've accidentally scratched my eyeball or something with this! So ladies, CHECK YOUR EYELINERS AFTER SHARPENING THEM to prevent injury!

  1. Eeeeek thank goodness you're all right! I would've imagined how scary it must've have been, even though it's only the sides, but it could have been worse! :( Take care and I hope you get well and recover soon!

  4. oh how dreadful. this and having left over wooden pieces left on your pencil after you've sharpened it are the worst. i'm terrified of getting things in my eye, so i always make sure to check there's no bits and pieces on my liner after i sharpen it.

  5. Oh my! I'm glad you are alright! I do sharpen my liners every now and then and check with my fingers if there are any sharp parts! I'm glad you shared this to everyone so we need to be careful as we only have a pair of precious peep-ers!
