      Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      I purchased at the recommendation of a staff member in Cincinnati when my brand I normally purchase at another retailer was not available at Ulta. I've not returned to the previous brand because I LOVE this product so much! The self-sharpening feature means one less item in my travel cosmetic bag, and all of the colors are very flattering. The liner does not budge and does take a bit of scrubbing to remove at the end of the day, even with waterproof remover.

      With regular use, one tube lasts about 3 months (much shorter lifespan than with my previous products), but I just stock up during 20% off sales.

            I've tried a lot of eyeliners and this was one of the worst in terms of irritation. Made my eyes water bigtime all day. Also, didn't stay on well at all--even outside of the waterline. And it doesn't wear off elegantly either--keep an eye on it...so to speak...

              Love this liner. Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin or eyes, but it does fade a bit throughout the day. I have combination skin and have to use moisturizer, so this could impact the longevity, but overall, I love how easy it is to apply and the variety of colors available.

                Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

                I wanted a good pencil for my waterline. I'm not sure if this product didn't work because I have rather oily lids, or if it's not really waterproof. I also have protruding lids, so anytime eye makeup smudges down, it gives me the worst looking dark circles. I would not recommend this if you are planning to tightline. (As for regular eyeliner, Urban Decay's Razor Sharp is my holy grail. Stays put all day, and is easy to removed with water--peels right off! but doesn't get phased by oily skin)

                    A:

                    Hi There! As you twist the cap on an off a sharpener in the lid refines and feeds the tip, so your pencil is Always Sharp. If you need to advance the liner hold the pencil just below the tip and pull down.

                • Q:

                  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.

                    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!
