Smashbox Always Sharp 3D Liner is a metallic eyeliner pencil that maintains a precise tip by automatically self-sharpening with every twist of the cap.

Benefits:
  • Self-sharpens when you twist open the cap
  • Smooth-glide formula delivers a precise line
  • Three-dimensional reflective pearls bring light to eye and lashline
  • Cruelty-free

This time-saving liner can also be used as a playful shadow. Just build up product on lid and blend out with a powder shadow.

Formulated without Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Phthalates, Oil, Fragrance, Talc & Alcohol.
To sharpen, simply twist the cap closed. If you hear a click, stop twisting. To maximize the shimmer, first line with a dark hue and then layer a lighter shade over it.

    Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp 3D Liner:

    My favorite eyeliner! Always goes on smooth, always sharp without the mess of a sharpener. I would give it 5 stars except I have to keep extras on hand so I don't run out because you don't know it's going to run out a head of time.

            This eyeliner goes on smoothly and stays on. The best part is that it's always sharp. It sharpens every time you put the top on. No trying to use a sharpener and having it break off. You get this perfect smooth line every time. It comes in several natural looking colors. And it doesn't bother my sensitive eyes.

                      • Q:

                        I'm 60 and I usually wear black eyeliner from Smashbox in a tiny jar. I'm concerned about the glitter aspect. Although I do wear eyeshadow that has some glitter. What color would you recommend trying first. I have blue eyes and my eye lashes are thinning on the bottom. So I need something that will pop, but not over take my eyes. Thank you

                          The shimmer/pearl finish of these shades provides a subtle brightening effect - none have glitter! 3D Galaxy is a great go-to for all eye colors, and we also suggest 3D Gunmetal for you. All shades can be viewed and tested at your nearest ULTA Beauty store:
