This Illuminating Pencil Trio looks innocent enough but oh my – the packaging is dreadful. 

Because…

Someone decided to glue the pencils at the bottom into the box.. meaning that all you get when you try and pull out a pencil is the lid! Wrestling the pencils out of the box, they’re all covered in glue at the bottom when you finally extract them.

Which is such a shame because the pencils are absolutely lovely to wear.. they’re so glisteny without being glittery and great value at £12 for the set of three.
