Get a Freezing Point of Eyeliner

Sometimes I feel my gripes with eyeliner would be better argued by Goldilocks. This eye pencil's too thin, that one's too smudgy, and the other breaks too easily. So although I understand all the fine (and not so fine) points of this product, I've got a quick solution to one war I wage weekly.

Picture a dull eyeliner tip twisting and turning in a sharpener but, before it gets sharp, it breaks. Well, fear not, there's an easy out: pop the pencil in the freezer for five minutes tops. This allows the tip to firm up and reduces the melting or crumbling in your sharpener. No more short pencils, no more long face, everyone's happy.

Great tip! I spend $$ on my Sue Devitt pencils (the only ones soft enough for me), but they break off so easily in the sharpener that it's a waste.
