Pencil liners are that one item in the makeup bag that i don't spend a lot of money on because i think when so many cheap ones are available in the market then why spend all that money. Sounds great , doesn't it ;)
Unfortunately my theory is sorely tested when i end up with a whole bunch of lip liners/eye liners that are hard, dry and plainly "a total PAIN" to use.
My tip for getting around this pesky inconvenience is pretty simple and effective.
Light a match.Pass the pencil liner in question through the flame once (maximum twice). The pencil will become soft and creamy in an instant. It will glide on like a dream :)
CAUTION:DO NOT hold the pencil in the flame.That will completely melt the wax in the product and heat it up too much. Passing it quickly through the flame once will suffice.
