How do you make the material extend from the case? I can't make it twist up or use a sharpener. If it doesn't , then I just bought 1/4" of material.

Hi! We are sorry you are having a problem sharpening the Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil Eyeliner. Even though the pencil is in a plastic resin, it is sharpened just like any wooden pencil. Use a cosmetic pencil sharpener to sharpen it. (see back of package) We recommend using our Maybelline Dual Sharpener.
This pencil does not swivel up.
This new generation of gel liners provides great color payoff but needs a gentle touch to sharpen successfully. For best results, insert the pencil into the sharpener no more than 1/4 of an inch. If you push the pencil too far into the sharpener, the blade will grab too much and become difficult to sharpen.
The goal is to shave off the resin in a thin curl to reveal more liner. The pencil should be sharpened frequently so that 3 or 4 gentle turns are sufficient to achieve the desired result. Always replace your sharpener when the blade has dulled and no longer sharpens smoothly.
