Tools of the Trade, Part I: Conical Dual Pencil Sharpeners

Here's a market I've bet you've never tapped into: dual makeup pencil sharpeners. There are tons of 'em out there! In fact, I was astonished to see different shapes, sizes and prices on these basic little gadgets. My first introduction to a unique sharpener was when I read about DuWop's Beauty Blade, a self-cleaning sharpener that has a little flap on top to contain shavings.

Since then, I've come across more of these dual-chambered, conical shaped sharpeners that accommodate both traditional-sized pencils and chunky ones. Stay tuned for more dual-chambered makeup pencil sharpeners this week. To check out more posts on tools of the trade, click here.
