      Comments about Smashbox Always On Gel Eye Liner:

      I have a love/hate relationship with this product. Absolutely love the color Nymph. It goes on well, stays on all day. These pencils do not sharpen well at all. I keep buying because I love the product but I do feel these pencils are defective. I have tried different sharpeners, I have tried freezing the eyeliner and then sharpening, to no avail. There is a lot of product waste. Hopefully Smashbox will look into this matter and fix the problem.

            I just discovered this eyeliner a few months ago and have already bought it in 3 colors. I cannot say enough good things about it. After trying plenty of eyeliners, this is the only one that doesn't run and stays on all day and night. I have recommended it to all my friends!

            • Q:

              What sharpener do you recommend with this Eye Liner? The ones I have tried cause the tip to break and I waste a lot of product. I really like it otherwise. Any suggestions?

              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

                A:

                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.

                A:

                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.

            • Q:

              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.

The Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Eyeliners are made of plastic and are sharpened by twisting on the cap.

                Hi There! First we suggest saturating a cotton round with your favorite eye makeup remover. Then place the cotton rounds on your eyes for 8-10 seconds. Now wipe the make off using long gentle strokes.
