Indie Brands

The best is the creativity and freedom that the brands have to put out exactly the type of products they think are missing from the industry. The worst is dealing with drama and entrepreneurs who either do not know how to run a business and/or take everything personally.

Thanks to Mary for today's question!

What is your technique for sharpening pencils?

If it’s a really soft formula, putting the pencil in the freezer or refrigerator for a short while helps to firm up the product more so it is not as messy to sharpen. For the most part, I don’t have too many issues sharpening them, though – I use Urban Decay’s Grindhouse quite loyally!
