        I got a sample size thru Ipsy and when I tried it I absolutely loved it. It just glides on so smooth! It gives you time to smudge it if you want but once it's set, it's set! Completely waterproof, doesn't run or fade!

        • Going Out

        Comments about Smashbox Always On Gel Eye Liner:

        This is not worth the money. Although I like the way it stays on, once you use the original tip as it comes, it is very difficult to sharpen. In fact, you'll be sharpening off more than you'll ever get to use. And after getting it to the point where you can try to use some, it appears to shrink away overnight and you'll have to start the whole process again. I'm usually poking myself in the eye because it doesn't sharpen well and the pencil part is sharp and scratches me.

          Comments about Smashbox Always On Gel Eye Liner:

          I received a sample of this and fell in love. I bought the full size, even though it was more money than I like to spend. I got the full size and once it was used a few times, I tried to twist to advance with no avail. You can't sharpen it because there is a plastic-like liner around the base of the liner. So I paid for this eyeliner that I used about 10 times. Disappointing. Love the eyeliner but can't figure it out. I've searched the internet to no avail as to the answer.

              Comments about Smashbox Always On Gel Eye Liner:

              Due to oily skin, all my previous eye liners either faded away or smeared below my lower eye lashes. When the Ulta beauty consultant claimed this was her all time favorite eyeliner because it didn't come off and you could make it as thin or as thick as you liked, I knew it was my best shot. True to her words, after twelve hours it still looked perfect! I've never had a product live up to its hype, as this. Bravo!

                  • Q:

                    Is this being discontinued? I agree that it is hard to sharpen. But it stays on the best of any eye liner I've tried. My eyes water a lot, and it doesn't run or give me racoon eyes. I only see two colors on line, not the full range.
                    If it is being discontinued, can you recommend something similar in formula and staying power?

                      Hi There! The pigment in the Always On Gel Eye Liners runs the full length of the pencil. The pigment in the Always Sharp Eye Liners is located in the tip because there is no waste when you sharpen the pencil.

                      Hi There! It sounds like your pencil sharpener could be dull. A dull pencil sharpener will make it very difficult to sharpen your cosmetic pencils. We suggest using a pencil sharpener made by beauty brand like Ulta. Your pencil should fit snuggly in its sharpener.
