      Comments about Smashbox Always On Gel Eye Liner:

      Jury is out with regard to long lasting and easy to apply. You have to be VERY careful with this eye liner because while it glides on easily you cannot make a mistake because it will dry rather quickly and it has been advertised as "smear proof". I bought this for a trip to a humid country and was tired of runny streaky liner. So far it seems to stay on all day, is waterproof and is a great bold color.Time will tell!

        Comments about Smashbox Always On Gel Eye Liner:

        Really love this liner! I have very watery eyes, so I've struggled to find a liner (and mascara) that don't give me raccoon eyes. The smashbox liner stays on great and I even have some liner left at the end of the day. I have now bought 5 colors. I wish there was a deep forest green, the one green is a little too teal. But I love the navy, dark brown, steel, and purple (sorry don't remember exact names). I also like the smoothness of application. My eye are a little wrinkled with age, and I can still get a smooth line.
        I haven't had them long enough to sharpen them yet. Hoping that doesn't effect my review.

                  Comments about Smashbox Always On Gel Eye Liner:

                  This pencil needs a pencil sharpener which I dislike. Prefer it to have been a dial up when when needing more product. Using the sharpener does not give a fine point, much product is wasted left around the blad and sharpener itself. A mess indeed. Had to immerse sharpener in hit sudsy water to soften all the gunk and use tissues and cotton swabs to clean the sharpener. With all that gunk you cannot use sharpener for lip liners and such because the black gunk (color of the eye liner you use) smears onto the lip liners etc. Suppose you need to purchase several sharpeners for different products if you use this Gel Eyeliner.
                  In closing, I use it for tight lining under the upper lid water line or lash line for depth. Do not blink for at least 30 seconds after applying to ensure the liner will not transfer onto lower water line during the day/night. I use Bioderma makeup remover to remove this product and that works quite well. Klorane fails miserably.
                  Product as gel pencil liner is best one I have used thus far.

                    Yes, I have a question about the "white" color eyeliner... I do know it requires a sharpener, but does the white color show pure white matte or a clear matte result? And some of the other light colors also. Do they go over the darker colors? Thanks

                      Hi There! I would consider the 'white' color to be a pure white with a demi matte finish. The lighter colors will show over darker colors if they have dried completely.

                      Hi Again, Sorry about the confusion. Have you tried holding the pencil on either side of the tip and pressing down 1 - 2 times? This should release the pigment inside the pencil. If you continue to have challenges with this liner please bring it into your local Ulta store for evaluation.

                    I have the Always On Gel Eye Liner. The material surrounding the gel is plastic. It will not sharper with a pencil sharpener. Twisting the cap does nothing. How do I get more product for use? I've had this only 2 weeks and cannot use it any longer. There are similar questions on this same topic, so it seems like a design flaw.
