Most Helpful Positive Review THE BEST LIP LINER EVER!! PLEASE READ RE: ADVANCING THE
This is a fantastic product. I ordered 3 shades and love them all. They keep your lipstick on longer and moisturize your lips. They self sharpen every time you unscrew the top. Awesome!!
ONE IMPORTANT TIP: I had to call customer service so they could explain how to advance the tip once you have worn it down. DO NOT TWIST THE END. That does nothing. You have to push down on the end with the product and the pencil will advance. There are no instructions for this in the packaging but once you figure that out, you will love this product!!
Most Helpful Critical Review very disappointed !!!!!!!!!
I love the colour and the way it glides on, Ive used it 5 times and loved it. On the 6th time using it my lip liner nub fell off (the sharpened tip) ,which happens so I thought oh well ... so I see how to get more lip liner out, maybe twisting the bottom, nope thats just a cap that falls right off, tried sharpening it again nope .....wow to my surprise they literally only give you a tiny nub (2mm) worth of lip liner for $18 ..... either theres more lip liner and I cant seem to find it, or this is a pathetic product that is poorly misleading consumers. $18 dollars for 5 uses ... seriously? im gonna be spending $60 a month on liner alone.
Reviewed by 404 customers Tricky advance mechanism
Kathy59 from Houston
Like the product—pretty, Stylist is a versatile natural pink, and it stays put, and is fairly long-lasting, but a little dry for my taste. The packaging mechanism is unusual. To advance the product, click the housing around the tip down. Kinda like a ballpoint pen, but at the writing end, and don't push on the crayon itself...my salesperson showed me, thank goodness! The eye pencils work the same way. The tips sharpens when you twist the cap on.
Lindsey from FL
This is a great everyday wear product. It has a very smooth application to my lip line and the color doesn't bleed or fade for hours. Very happy with this product!
Still loving this lip liner
CathyS from Pooler, Ga
I've used this lip liner for about six years and still think it's the best for an every day natural look, whether it's paired with a lipstick or used as filler and glossed over. I love that the sharpener is built-in. The Medium Nude is perfect for my light/medium skin tone in all seasons.
Is that all there is?
Disappointed from Texas
I bought the product a couple weeks ago and tried to extend the crayon but either it's all gone or it's broken. I think it's all gone. All you get is the tip you see when you buy it. Certainly not even close to the dollars paid.
I would by this product again
Judi from Granbury Tx
Very poor value!
Kwest from Richmond TX
I bought this lip liner to go with the Smashbox Stylist matte lipstick. The lip liner works well and keeps my lipstick from feathering, however the amount of product you get for the price is terrible, .009 oz is a fraction of .04 oz or .05 oz for lip liner that is not self sharpening. I will not buy this lip liner again.
ALWAYS SHARP, SHORT ON PRODUCT...
Jacquii from Maple Valley, WA
I've been utilizing these liners for years. As of late they have less and less product and all my fave colors have been discontinued. Bring them back. Lower the price and add more product.
Is this product really only 5 mm long?
Mumla from Melbourne Australia
I must be missing something because the few mm you can see is all there is. It lasts about 4 weeks. Don't know why the case is so long. It looks like the top should turn to wind it up but nothing happens.I love the actual product but not the quantity
The best lip liners ever!
Jackson from Mississippi
I've tried so many lip liners, Then found Smashbox they make the best liners. The go on smooth, the colors a deep and beautiful, and they last. I have almost every color.
Do not recommend
Suzanne from Raleigh, NC
The lip liner itself is a little too dry. But FAR worse than that, the product is of extremely poor value. Either there is too little lip liner in the pencil or the mechanical design results in a tremendous amount of product waste. Liner lasted a month, if that. Don't waste your money.
Love my lips from Richmond, TX
I read som cons about the lip liner breaking. I find it only breaks when it is down to the end. Once it broke sooner from the heat, I put the cap back on and continued screwing. It came back, but only because is wasn't empty.
Linda from MI
Product goes on easily and color is great! Twist top keeps product secure without worrying about the top coming off in your purse and making a mess!
Great While It Lasted
Jenn from OH
The liner is great but my mind was blown with how little liner was in the container. It doesnt sharpen. In the plus side, long wear and easily glides on. Id just like a little more for my money.
I only bought this for the color
Og Tori from Bellflower, CA
I love the color that's why I bought it twice. I hate it's not a pencil you can sharpen. It supposedly sharpens every time you twist the cap which makes the product run out so fast which isn't fair it's not a cheap lip liner.
Best of everything lipliner
C Scott from Pooler, Ga
I love that I can keep the liner sharp with just a twist or two because of the great mechanical design of the pencil. The Medium Nude color is long lasting and perfect for a naturally enhanced look used alone or with almost any lip color. This has been my go-to liner for a couple of years now. I hope Smashbox never changes or discontinues this product.
Ran out in less than one week.
Laurie from Racine, wisconsin
I bought this on Wednesday and on Saturday it was not usable. I don't know if this is one of those items that was previously purchased, used and then returned and put back on the shelf. I will be returning it today.
Bring back the pencil!
Meme from Illinois
I used to use and love the smashbox lip liner in pencil form. In fact, when it was discontinued I bought every one I could find. Alas, I've used them all up and decided to try this self-sharpening version. It is not good. First, the cap fits on so tightly that it takes great force to pull it off daily. Several times this force has cause the liner to break off, wasting product!! Second, at a time when most companies are focused on sustainability and reducing product waste,smashbox has elected to place this product in MORE plastic and wasteful packaging. A pencil gets smaller as you use it up, making it lightweight and compact for travel. This large plastic applicator takes up space no matter how much you use up. with a pencil you can also customize the tip to create the line you like: fat or thin. This automatic pencil only gives you the option of a thin line. I use the smashbox liner as a grippy base for my lip products so I like a fat tip for faster filling. The liner itself is great but I won't be buying again in this packaging.
Love the color
Muneca from CA
I love the color but I'm having a hard time turning the knob for more color to come up
Absolute must if you own a bag of lip products!
Margs from Victorville, CA
I have no idea how anyone matches lip liners to ALL of their lipsticks and glosses. This product is a 100% must.
Twist feature doesn't work
Adi from Alabama
I bought this product less than a month ago and it is already out or it's not working. I like the color but that is it.
Pat Strom from rocky river, ohio
It's a lip liner and it works
Terrible the twist up does not work...
Yvete from S. Texas
I bought this lip liner about a month ago; I like to keep stock for whenever I need it. Has me going crazy because the twist up is NOT working....UGGGGGG!!
Lk from NY
Color was perfect- matched lip tone.
Jpa from Florida
The concept of a self-sharpening liner is appealing, and when it did (intermittently) work it allowed good precision and the product went on easily. However, the self-sharpening mechanism is prone to malfunctioning, resulting in the product breaking off prematurely. I wish it functioned more reliably because I loved the color and the application of the product, but I will not buy again.
Ruthie from Franklin, WI
I have used this lip liner in both Nude Medium and Stylist. I like the fact it's self sharpening and gives a clean line when needed. I'm more precise in application with Stylist since I generally use it with my more vibrant lip colors. Only con is that the product is pricey.
