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

Benefits:
  • Built-in self-sharpener ensures a precise tip with every twist of the cap
  • Hyper-pigmented kohl for color-rich results
  • Long-wearing, waterproof and non-flaking formula
  • Can be used on waterline
  • Cruelty-free

This time-saving liner can also be used on the inner rim or as shadow. Just build up product on lid and blend out with a powder shadow. Don't forget to let it set!

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. Line the waterline of the eye for major definition. Let set to maximize wear time.

    I bought several colors awhile ago and used them all up. After they were gone I used other brands and just could not find any I was happy with! I had to go and buy my everyday color ! This eyeliner doesn't run and doesn't need to be reapplied during the day, worth the price!

      This is the best everyday, or nightlife eyeliner. You never have to sharpen it, its built right in. Silky smooth application, every time. I love the rich color ( RAVEN ) hope it never discontinues.

            Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

            I have really oily lids.. I like the way it applies. However I don't like the packaging. Because the lid sharpens the pencil and retracts it, it's annoying for me to control it. Throughout the day it does still transfer to my eyelids and smudge to the bottom of my eyes so I will not be purchasing this again. Yes I did use a primer.

              I love this eyeliner. I'm usually a liquid liner kind of gal, but my mother gave me this liner to try and I ended up loving it. It's a must buy if you like a thin black lined liner that stays put.

              • Q:

                Most brown eyeliners make my eyes look red. I have green eyes and very pale skin. Can you suggest a Kohl pencil shade that will not look reddish on me. Thank you

                  A:

                  We suggest Sumatra or Penny Lane. They won't pull red and will look flattering next to green eyes and pale skin.

                  A:

                  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.
