Rated 5 out of 5 by JulesofWisdom Just Add it to your Order
I purchased three of the older clear ones. Gave one away & kept two, one for eyes & the other for lips. These have sharpened my eye pencils that with other sharpeners had become damaged. The other sharpeners would eat at the pencil part too much making it jagged near where the eyeliner lead comes out & they also would break my lead where it would still be in the pencil, but was loose & wobbly. I wasted more pencil just trying to get it right. I researched online reviews & this and MUFE's were rated high. I bought these & sharpened up my old pencils no problem. I wish I had these earlier & hadn't wasted my time & product trying other sharpeners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShineOn Best Sharpener
I purchased this pencil sharpener especially for the UD primer/pencil when it came on the market. I am always looking for a good primer and it came highly recommended as well as the sharpener. So I purchased this great sharpener not realizing I would come to have as many UD products as I do. That came to me as I just signed on recently here. I came by wanting to know more info and closer view of the products on line so...what better place to come than the ones who formulate the products? That nitty gritty is the sharpener is sturdy. It works well with the UD primer as pencils, to me easy to use and clean. It;s the sturdiest sharpener I have, I like the purple as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheFlyingAce Kind of overpriced but it works!
I bought this on a whim after reading some positive reviews stating that it's "way sharper" than the average sharpener. TBH, I have only used one other sharpener besides this one and it was really cheap like $3 and it did just as good of a job. I think that with time, pencil sharpener blades will dull out just like any kind of knife or blade, so maybe $10 for this is kind of ridiculous considering you'll end up buying another one after a year or two...but since this is my first UD sharpener, I am not entirely sure about the longevity of it. If it lasts for many years, it will be worth the price. The plastic parts seem cheap though. Interesting that it's Made in Germany...!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Amberenae725 Great sharpener, but not worth the price.
This sharpener works great. The blades are sharp, and I like the little removable plastic tool it comes with to remove the gunk so you get a nice, clean shave every time. But that isn't enough to warrant the price. After having mine for a while, the cap always falls off, the tool is bent (and I haven't used it an awful lot), and I find myself reaching for the ones I got from the dollar store and totally ignoring my UD sharpener. The two sizes are pretty standard, and it's not hard to find another sharpener that houses both sizes. Being a die-hard UD fan, I bought this, but in retrospect, it just isn't worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UDeyelinerjunkie HG sharpener
I read the reviews on this but felt like $10 was crazy to spend on a sharpener so I purchased a cheaper one, then another cheaper one, and then finally decided to just give this a try and I could kick myself for not getting this sooner. I immediately sharpened all of my UD eyeliners and was blown away by how smooth and easy this sharpened them. It made my eyeliners so much easier to use since it was a very even sharpen, unlike others I've used. This is one of my favorite purchases as it will clearly make my eyeliners last longer. If you are on the fence, just go for it...you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MammaTee Best makeup sharpener I have ever found!
I was blessed with a UD eyeliner and when it needed to be sharpened, I used the sharpener I had. It was just an old cheap pencil sharpener that I had bought for eyeliner pencils. It tore up my UD pencil.
I went out and bought a new sharpener and I had the same results. I then went and tried to find a makeup sharpener and couldn't find one in the stores anywhere.
When I did my first UD order on line, I ordered the Grindhouse and I have to say that it did what it should. No more messed up eyeliner pencil.
It may seem a bit pricey, but in my honest opinion, you do get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sarahjane2328 Pricey, But Worth It!
When my eyeliner sharpener of 2 years finally died, I was forced to buy a new eyeliner sharpener. I was originally going to buy a generic $3 eyeliner sharpener, but on the advice of a friend, I chose to invest in this one. This eyeliner has literally saved me from having uneven wings and inconsistent waterlines. It sharpens well and really does the trick, and unlike other sharpeners, it does not "squish" the tip of your eyeliner. I don't even need liquid eyeliner for a sharp wing any more! I really recommend this product because it definitely works, and lasts in the long-haul!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DragRacer27 It's actually pretty good.
Hate that I'm writing a review for a sharpener... who does that? But as weird as it is, I have to admit that it is pretty great. Something about it just... works really well. I didn't notice too much of a difference between this sharpener and my other ones (aside from that fact that it sharpened a little bit more "smoothly") but my sister used it and couldn't stop raving about it. She went on to have a full-on sharpening party for all the pencils that were lying around. It's really expensive for what it is, but... it is an excellent sharpener. Will buy again if there is a sale.
