Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

This is honestly the best liner I've ever used for my waterline. Lasts all day and doesn't run. I just feel that the price isn't worth it for the amount you get. I go through these so quickly.

            Because I have hooded eyes I apply my eyeliner on my top waterline and I've been trying to find a pencil eyeliner that lasts long for watery and oily eyes. This one lasts probably only 5 minutes. After I applied my mascara, my eyeliner had already disappeared. I recently purchased Tarte Double Take and it lasts throughout the night.

            I like this liner when it's directly on my lid, close to my lash line; however, this runs and smudges on the water line. Definitely a liner where you'll have to clean your outer corners and reapply to your waterline throughout the day.

                    I have sensitive eyes, skin, allergies ... you name it. I've only been able to wear BE Inside Eyeliner on my inner rim without any issues. Seems they've discontinued it and so I began searching for a new staple. I saw this product was for the inner rim and purchased French Navy (dark blue), Raven (black), and Violetta (prune).

                    Violetta looks the same as French Navy on my inner rim, both look muted. Raven appears as a dark gray. I wish it were darker. Actually, I wish they each showed up darker.

                    The liners do glide on. And even though my eyes tear from keeping my eyes open for application, the color remains, which is really nice.

                    I've read the reviews on the tip breaking, etc. Only using these on my inner rim, I haven't experienced any problems. I've used them each a few times and the tip is always sharp.

                    I'm not sure I'll keep all three colors since they're all muted and two look the same on me. I'll definitely keep using Raven until I find a darker black inner rim eyeliner.

                          How do you get this eyeliner to twist up? So expensive and not easy to use. The mechanics need work, it should be that difficult to figure out.

                            Hi There! As you twist the cap on an off (do not twist and click, or pump the tip) a mold in the lid reshapes the tip of your liner, so your pencil is Always Sharp. You should definitely get a few months use out of this product.
