Ditch your sharpener, but stay sharp! This waterproof kohl eyeliner glides on and self-sharpens every time you twist the cap off. Inspired by Smashbox pros who sharpen before every use on set, this first-of-its-kind pencil has a sharpener built right into the cap for a perfect tip-so you'll always get a precise line.

  • Can be used on inner rim
  • Precision of a liquid liner in a fool-proof pencil
  • Waterproof and non-flaking


Formulated without parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, phthalates, oil, fragrance, talc & alcohol.

Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

Pros: (usually) stays sharp/pointed, easy to apply to lower lash liner or upper lash/tightline, dark color (I purchased black and it is a bold black). Cons: sometimes the tip breaks off- you just have to twist it to sharpen again but it is a waste of product, you can't tell when you're about to run out.

              I like a eyeliner that I can get a nice smooth fine line, this pencil glides easily. Very easy to apply. Color I purchased is Violetta, almost a smokey purple. The cap somehow keeps the point sharp all the time. I'm looking forward to getting another color. I would say well worth the price.

                  What's the best way/technique to remove? My lashes are thinning and I can't afford to lose anymore. I only use cruelty free and have been using Sonia Kashuk.

                    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

                    Hi There! Yes there is is. As you twist the cap on an off a sharpener in the lid refines and feeds the tip, so your pencil is Always Sharp.

                    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!
