      Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      The self sharpening cap is a good idea, but I didn't like it. Also the color wasn't dark enough and it didn't glide on as well as the urban decay 24/7 does. I tried this because I don't like having to constantly sharpen the urban decay one.

                    Purchased this in gold/copper and loved it so much I went back the next day to get the black one. Always sharp, no need for sharpening. Produces a smooth, thin line. Can build for a thicker, more defined line. Eyes look fresh from morning until night. Very, very pleased.

                        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

                          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!
