      The "smartest eyeliner pencil I've ever had! Self sharpens every time you twist the cap on or off, so the tip always has a point! Glides on smoothly without any tugging. I bought the dark brown color & it's perfect for me.

        Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

        This is my first time using this product, and I love it! I really like how the eyeliner is self sharpening, so there is no mess. The color is nice and the liner goes on smoothly. I was hesitant to buy a waterproof eyeliner, but it comes off easily with my facial cleanser. The color lasts all day and doesn't run.

          Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

          I like the liner itself but the packaging needs improvement. I've lost the tip numerous times and the since you can't extend the tip out, it's harder for thin lines

            Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

            I use this liner everyday!!! I have small eyes and it's hard to get a nice tight line that is not too thick. With the built in sharpener you have it here. I use on both my inner and outer rims and go back and forth with the colors but The French Navy and Violetta are def used the most! I also have black and grey which are great too. But I find that the Navy and Purple just look gorgeous on a Hazel Eye. Also the bare color liner looks awesome on the lower rim. It opens small eyes beautifully. I use with the smash box photo lid primer. Not the 24 hr one. And I have gone days (when needed) without a smudge. Seriously. Only eyeliner pencil I use.

              Absolutely love the Self-Sharpening pencil. My cheeks bunch when I smile, causing eye liner to smudge all over. This liner stays put and doesn't smudge!

                I use this daily for a natural look with or without mascara. It's also great for achieving a more dramatic look. Self sharpener creates the perfect tip. Matte finish.

                    How "long" is the product, in terms of the eye liner inside the plastic? I got one of these in a sample and it was gone after about 10 uses that made me very sad! Trying to figure out if this sample was the full size or truly, a sample.

                      Hi There! As you twist the cap on an off (do not twist and click, or pump) a mold in the lid reshapes the tip of your liner, so your pencil is Always Sharp. You should definitely get more than 10 uses out of this product.

                      Hi There! Smashbox is cruelty free. Saturate a cotton round with your favorite makeup remover and place on your lids for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds the liner should have loosened and you'll be able to wipe it away in long, even, gentle strokes

                      A:

                      Try these steps:

                      Put the cap on the liner.
                      Then, put your left hand on the cap and your right hand on the base.
                      Twist your right hand in the direction of the arrow and your left hand the opposite way.
                      You will feel that you have to twist past a point of tension; proceed, and you will hear a click.
                      Remove the cap.

                      That should sharpen it!
