A long-wearing, water-resistant lip liner that self-sharpens every time you twist the cap off. Sharpen, shape and sculpt your way to a legendary lip!

Benefits:
  • Self-sharpening: Just like Smashbox's award-winning Always Sharp Eye Liners, their lip liners have a tiny built-in sharpener in the tip of the cap, so they self-sharpen every time you twist off the cap.
  • Glide-on shaping: Shape matters! Enhancing your shape is a cinch when you have a precise tip that always glides on - whether you need to accentuate your cupid's bow for fullness, or line your inside edges for a slimming effect.
  • Color-matched sculpting: With 16 shades perfectly matched to Smashbox's Be Legendary lip colors, you can build your pout without fear of, well, clown lips. Plus, your sculpting won't smudge, feather, or bleed, thanks to a long-wearing, water-resistant formula.

Long-wearing. Water-resistant.

Formulated without parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, phthalates, oil, fragrance, talc and alcohol.

Not sure which color? Remember, everyone needs a nude lip liner! Or, you can match your lip liner to your lip product color.

            Be sure to pull the container down or continue clicking past the empty appearance (when you think it's empty). It's not empty...really. Directions for product disbursement would be helpful!

                Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liner:

                I am crazy about Smashbox. Their lipsticks are the only ones I use and so when I wanted a red lipstick and liner, I went with them. I had not used their liner before. I use Laura Mercier liners, and I have to say, Smashbox, this liner is AWFUL! It breaks. It is expensive and there's hardly much material there and it doesn't apply well. It was a total waste of money.

                          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.
