    I love this eyeliner, except that I dropped the pencil and smashed the point. The always sharp point was smashed and would not sharpen again. Too expensive to lose have of it.

    Very little product for the price.

    Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

    I ordered this item to take on a week's vacation when I would be swimming daily and wished to have a waterproof liner. It never seemed to sharpen very well but I continued to use it throughout the week since it was the only liner I took with me. Since vacation I have used it only several times more. Upon the last time using it, it came out clearly not sharpened at all and with little liner protruding from the end of the pen. I placed the cap back on and upon removing it there was no liner tip at all at the end of the pen, nor is it broken off in the lid. (I checked) Is there only an inch of liner in this pen? Either I received a defectively manufactured item or this is item is quite expensive for only less than 2 weeks of usage!

      I have dark brown hair/eye color and med tan skin. This liner is perfect for an all brown golden tone eyeshadow look paired with black mascara. The brown liner provides soft definition to the eye which is perfect for daytime wear.

                      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.

                    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.

                      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!
