The KUM® Tipfor®mer System offers individual point shaping of each cosmetic pencil. Why individual point shaping? Most makeup pencils have a very soft cosmetic formula as a lead,which is best applied with a short tip to delicate areas of facial skin. However some pencils, such as brow pencils, and nail whiteners, have very hard leads that need to be sharpened to a sharp, pointed tip, for effective application. With the KUM® Tipfor®mer System, you may individualize the tip of your pencil by shaping it either for shading in broad areas of skin or for creating fine accents and lines. With the KUM® Tipfor®mer System, you may choose the pencil tip and length you like best.
