Christmas countdown: BECCA Anti-Bacterial Sharpener

This one is perfect buying either for yourself or the beauty junkie in your life – an Anti-Bacterial Sharpener from cult beauty name BECCA. These anti-bacterial sharpeners come in two sizes for slim or jumbo lip and eye pencils; effortlessly keeping them clean while simultaneously sharpening them to your desired point. They use a very clever double- blade system to professionally sharpen dual-ended pencils to a rounded or pointed tip, so can choose between a razor sharp point for precision application or a rounded point for softer edges. They keep things clean thanks to the fact that the metal blade hardware has been treated with a silver and zinc based anti-bacterial additive, which sanitises as you sharpen. This is effective for two years after first use and is a bonus for contact lens wearers like me who need to keep their eye pencils fastidiously clean or risk some nasty infections. This new professional tool is exclusive in New Zealand to Newmarket beauty mecca Glamourpuss – one of my most-loved stores, naturally! - and a key addition to any makeup bag this Christmas. The recommended retail price for the BECCA Slim Sharpener is $14 and BECCA Jumbo Sharpener is $28 and both are in stock now.
