          Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

          I use this product every day. I have tried every navy blue liner there is (practically) and this one is one of the best. Took me a minute to figure out how to advance the product out of the inside, but it is neat because it stays sharp. I will say I feel like it doesn't take long to go through one of these, but I use every day and line my upper and waterline (have forever and ever). I also will layer a thin line of black marker liner over it. Sometimes it does run a bit by the end of the day if its hot out. Love the color though and that it sharpens itself. Will continue to buy.

          Unfortunately it was not waterproof on me. Bought it specifically for that reason. Allergies and dry eyes make it hard to keep liner on. This was not the answer. Great self-sharpening feature! Wish it would have been waterproof.

            The first time I bought it it worked well but was a little crumbly the second time I bought it it keeps breaking off in little bitty clumps and I can't get a defined line. I'm probably halfway through this pain with only five or six applications

                    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.

                    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!
