Not sure why this would get less than 4 or 5 stars, other than to note that if you fail to tighten the cap following use, you are not sharpening! This ensures the product is freshly sharpened each time. Works perfectly and with greater precision than a standard cosmetic sharpener would manage, doing it the old fashioned way. Easy to apply, flows well with little drag (on my old eyes), works for tight-lining, and once set lasts through the day. Very pleased and will re-order. Colour 'Spruce' is great with green or hazel eyes!
