Self sharpening eyeliner pencils

I always used L'Oreal self sharpening pencil from the drugstore, but they did something to it and it's awful now. Tugs on the lid but the product does not line my lids and I'm sick of wrestling with it in my delicate eye area.

 

I prefer the "mechanical pencil" eyeliners over the kind you have to sharpen.  

 

Thanks for any suggestions!

I've used a few drugstore mechanical eye pencils but what do you mean by self sharpening?

My nickname was 'Pure N Simple" but now I've switched to 'decaf'.

Sounds like the product may have been out-of-date.    Eyeliners dry up, especially in arid climates....

@PilatesLover   I actually prefer the kind you sharpen.  I really like L'Oreal Infallable Pro Last.  It goes on easily and can be used in the water line.  I know this brand carries other  pencils but this one is different and for me and it glides on.  You might like this one.

Maybe you just got an old one?  I like the mechanical ones better too but they do dry out faster because the don't have the wood surrounding the color to keep it from drying out.

 

I like Rimmel Eye Definer, NYX mechanical eye pencil and Revlon Colorstay. The Rimmel is getting hard to find.

I like Smashbox's Always Sharp Kohl eyeliners, never need sharpening. Also I like Clinique's Quickliner for Eyes.

I use Cover Girl Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner Pencil. It's a mechanical twist up pencil.
